River cruising is a very special experience, combining as it does a very relaxed pace of life as you watch the world go by from on board your slow moving river vessel, and frenetic sightseeing opportunities as you arrive every day, and often twice a day, in a new great city or charming village to explore independently or as part of a guided tour. And on no cruise line is this truer than aboard APT River Cruises.
Australian touring company APT has been creating fascinating touring holidays for over 80 years, so they really know what they are doing.
APT's Mekong prgramme is an excellent way to see Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand with the river cruise making up a good deal of the time spent exploring this region. River cruising in areas such as Cambodia and China utilizes a transport channel that is far more reliable and comfortable than the road system. It allows you to cut through the heart of a country and access regions that are difficult to see by conventional means. It also gives the reassurance that after a day's exploration a shore, you can come back to your floating sanctuary. Their Freedom of Choice Touring enables you to pick the shore excursion that appeal to you to give a more personalized travel experience.
APT's cruises to Egypt combine a four night Nile cruise aboard the wonderful Moon Godess with time in Cairo and Abu Simbel. Whilst on your Nile cruise, you will see the Valley of the Kings, Edfu's Temple of Horus and Luxor.
APT River Cruises offers vessels with comfortable cabins, excellent food and service excellent, and with shore excursions all included in the fare you pay upfront, as well as wine with dinner. An APT River Cruise is a five star river cruise experience.
APT River Cruises also offer the opportunity to combine your Mekong or Yangstze River Cruise with an enriching land tour. This gives you the option to discover a destination with a small group of likeminded travellers. You will be accompanied by an ATP Tour Director.
