About your holiday

Fly to Basel and step aboard Saga’s brand new luxury ship, Spirit of the Rhine, for a cruise featuring live music from the 1960s and 70s performed on board. Cruise into Germany and moor in Breisach, from where you might wish to explore the Black Forest, before dancing into France to explore Strasbourg’s delightful cobbled streets and picturesque half-timbered houses on an included guided tour and canal cruise. Another included excursion visits stately Heidelberg before you reach the beautiful Middle Rhine where you can raise a glass in the pretty wine town of Rudesheim.

The concerts keep coming as you cruise to historic Koblenz and explore the sights of Cologne before your cruise concludes in Amsterdam, where you can look forward to an included city tour and canal cruise to see the highlights, or alternatively enjoy a walking tour themed around delightful Dutch food...
