Back to nature


Unwind in nature with APT’s exclusive excursions. Feel at peace walking by the gently rolling hills and lazily turning windmills of Zaanse Schans, or, for guests traveling in the spring, there is also the option to meander through an abundance of vibrant tulips at Keukenhof Gardens, Amsterdam. Travel in spring with APT on the 15-day European Gems tour.

Music for the soul


Classical music has been credited to have many positive effects on mental and physical health – including reducing stress and decreasing blood pressure. If that is the case, APT’s exclusive Signature Experience, a breathtaking Classical Concert at Vienna’s City Palace, could be a miracle cure! Guests are invited to sit down to a private concert, featuring orchestral performances of Mozart and Strauss masterpieces, plus music from members of the Mozart Boys’ Choir.

After a day of frolicking through tulip fields and once-in-a-lifetime musical performances, guests can return to their spacious suites (some of the largest suites on Europe's rivers in fact) and make the most of APT's exclusive Twin Balcony Suites, a perfect spot to unwind with a book in hand as the sun sets over the river.
