Exclusive A&K Onshore Connections

Enjoy visits to authentic European neighborhoods and markets, as well as exclusive meetings with local artisans, musicians and culinary experts, that reveal your destination from a unique perspective. We call them A&K Onshore Connections — unforgettable travel moments that are only possible because of A&K's unmatched local expertise.

Pre- and Post-Cruise City Visits Included

All journeys include stays before and/or after river cruising at hotels centrally located in key European cities, letting you more fully explore the regions you visit. On Paris, Burgundy and a South of France Cruise, tour the City of Light and visit Monet's gardens at Giverny, before boarding your modern riverboat in Lyon for a cruise though southern France. On-board meals and special group welcome dinners are also included, as are all transfers to and from the airport.


 

Abercrombie and Kent Cruises

Abercrombie & Kent has expanded its popular Connections Worldwide Group Journey offerings for 2014 to include luxury European river cruises. They have introduced nine inspiring new journeys that carry you through the very heart of the Continent, along the Rhine, Main, Danube, Rhône and other storied waterways. Explore France, Holland, Germany, Austria, and Hungary to discover life in Europe at its most authentic, at an unmatched value.

A Dedicated A&K Tour Director

The river cruise experience with A&K is unlike any other. From start to finish, your journey is personally overseen by an A&K Tour Director, acknowledged as one of the best in the industry. From the moment you step on board, you are on a first-name basis, as your Tour Director leads you on planned shore excursions, joins you for a private cocktail party and offers you sound guidance for getting the most out of exploring on your own.

 

A Smal Group of Just 24 Guests

Throughout every journey, you travel in the like-minded company of no more than 24 A&K guests.  You avoid delays thanks to priority group boarding, and explore Europe together in a relaxed, intimate atmosphere. This small group size also gives you access to unique onshore sightseeing experiences and lodgings with local character that are simply not available to larger groups.
