    Avalon Waterways know that no two travellers are alike so they don't assume all their guests will like the same activities and excursions. With more expertly led discovery options than any other river cruise line they make it possible for you to explore each port of call according to what intrigues you most.

    Shore Excursions

    On shore, Avalon includes a great range of comprehensive sightseeing excursions led by knowledgable Certified Local Guides. They also provide individual personal audio headsets to ensure you still have the freedom to roam through some of Europe's most famous attractions without missing a moment of fascinating commentary.

    If you'd like to experience something slightly off the beaten track, they offer unique alternative excursions in select destinations. In many cities they also give you a choice of sightseeing pace: 'Traditional' to see all the major sights, 'Leisurely' available on walking tours when you want to take it slower, and 'Independent' allowing you to explore on your own. Have a chat with your Cruise Director to learn about the available options.

    They even provide Nordic walking sticks to put that extra spring in your step!
