Let Europe’s finest come to you on one of our impressive multi-country itineraries. Cruise the waterways. Wander the Christmas markets. Explore even more by land and rail.
Amsterdam to Budapest
We understand that one type of holiday does not fit all, so we’ve created a range of travel styles. A selection of ways you can explore the world. Some cover the must-see sights. Some go more in-depth. And sometimes we mix two styles into the one journey. We often offer multiple travel styles in the one destination, ensuring your experience is perfectly aligned with why you want to go, your interests, and your fitness level.
There’s nothing more liberating than unpacking once. So you’re free to join in the cultural, culinary and historical experiences designed exclusively for you. Free to go ashore and explore on your own. Free to relax on board and admire the ever-changing scenes.
Small Ship Expedition Cruising
Aboard an intimate, ocean-going vessel, spend less time waiting to embark or disembark and dock right in the middle of a city or town, or jump aboard a Zodiac and head into remote locations. APT's expedition team are always on hand to ensure your safety, comfort and enjoyment.
Luxury Yacht Cruising
Travel aboard APT's newly built luxury yacht which perfectly slips in to secluded harbours and coves that bigger vessels can't access. Step ashore in the heart of things, and enjoy more time to explore.
Small Group Journeys
Joining just 19 other guests, part ways with the well-worn trail and stay a little longer in places to uncover their true character. Think authentic boutique accommodation. Think local exploration and interaction. Think cultural immersion. These trips attract the most inquisitive of travellers.
