European rivers were the historical ‘highways’ of the continent and are great for some of the best experiences in Europe. Many of our travelers visit Budapest, Bratislava, Vienna, Wachau, Nuremberg, Cologne, Utrecht and Amsterdam on board of one of the numerous MS Amadeus ships - stress-free travel, beautiful vistas, panoramic views over passing landscapes and much more! The vessel’s extensive Sun Deck and the outdoor, glass-shielded River Terrace offer plenty of room for mental and spiritual relaxation – take a moment to reflect on your life and journeys ahead.
One of the most exciting things on board is delicious food arriving at your convenience - you culinary needs and desires will be taken care of by the elegant Panorama Bar, the Panorama Restaurant and the relaxed Café Vienna, which offer refreshing drinks and lovingly crafted culinary delights from the kitchen, and which will ensure that your every wish is met, around the clock.

Russia has started to make its way on to many Australians’ bucket lists. It’s a huge country that can boast unique experiences you cannot find anywhere else, not only in Moscow and St.Petersburg. Even for those who grew up in Russia, a lifetime isn’t enough to explore it all. This is why we’ve designed multiple tours throughout Russia to help travelers get a good taste of “Euro-asia”.
Russian rich history, delicious food and sheer size – all create this luring atmosphere calling for your visit.
Since Russia is the biggest country in the world, we’ve designed interesting routes for you to explore some of the most memorable destinations within the country and also visit Eastern Europe – the former parts of Russia as well as nearby nations that have contributed to the Russian culture.
From Little Tour of Russia to Imperial Russian Trans Siberian Railway, it is almost doesn’t matter which side of this nation you start from – it’ll be a lifetime experience. The Golden Ring is a popular destination for both Russian and overseas tourists, which takes you back in time, visiting towns in the region that are ancient, and many were important centres in medieval Russia. It’s a fascinating dive into the history of this country.
If Russia wasn’t on your bucket list last year, it’s a perfect opportunity to try something very different. And a new, paperless visa regime is forecasting to make the country one of the world’s top 10 destinations.
