Enjoy unforgettable shore excursions

Inspiring travel your way
An undeniable benefit of river cruising is the ability to dock in the heart of a city, to disembark and be only steps from the main attractions. Uniworld’s itineraries have been finessed to ensure the indulgence and luxury of the ships is complemented by unforgettable explorations to riverside cities and towns.

Excursions are as varied as the destinations, from tasting fine Rheingau Rieslings inside Schloss Vollrads Castle or a Bulgarian honey and yoghurt tasting. Engage in lively cultural exchanges while at a home-hosted lunch in the emerging nations of Eastern Europe or take a village vineyard tractor ride in Germany. With Choice Is Yours options, you to decide which excursions you want to take. Visited the famed Rijksmuseum on your last visit to Amsterdam? This time, consider exploring the equally wonderful Van Gogh Museum instead. From Nuremberg to Vienna, Lyon to Normandy, we’ve chosen alternative sites guaranteed to please even the most experienced traveller.

Just as guests have different preferences, they have different paces. In select locations, guided Go Active hiking and biking excursions are led by local naturalists or sports guides. Or turn the pace right down with Gentle Walking excursions, designed to allow guests to explore at a more relaxed pace, so you needn’t worry if you wish to linger longer in a shop or gaze at a beautiful painting. Or guests can enjoy an exclusive Do as the Locals Do experience providing authentic encounters to walk in the shoes of the locals, and uncover their favourite places to meet and shop. Alternatively guests can get an intimate view of village life during visits to local homes and workshops on a Village Day excursion.

The introduction of a new all-inclusive cruise price in 2014 means guests don’t need to be dipping into their pockets every time they disembark with all shore excursions and gratuities included. Excursions are hosted by English-speaking local experts and guests are armed with a state-of-the-art Quietvox portable lightweight audio headset system so they don’t have to worry about not hearing any of the important details – no more missing interesting snippets of history or insights into architecture.
