We arrive into glorious Vienna for a comprehensive sightseeing tour. This is a chance to relish in Austria's Imperial heritage, one full of tradition and rich in architectural, artistic and musical heritage. Tonight a real treat awaits us on board, where after dinner we are joined by musicians from the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra for an exclusive, private recital.

Today we reach Austria's Wachau Valley, a famous wine-making region. We arrive in the idyllic village of Dürnstein where you have time at leisure before we begin cruising along the picturesque Wachau Valley. We then enjoy an excursion to Melk Abbey. On Day 6 we have a choice of excursions. You could head further into the countryside for a day spent amidst the spectacular scenery of the Austrian lakes or travel by coach to Salzburg, via Mondsee, for a sightseeing tour.



Day Days 7-8 - Regensburg and homeward bound

Regensburg is our port of call this morning, which we explore on foot. Back on board tonight, we attend the Captain's gala dinner. On Day 8 we disembark after breakfast to start the journey back to the UK.
