Or perhaps you would prefer to sail through UNESCO listed-valleys, sprinkled with striking architecture during a Danube river cruise, as you make your way through Austria, Slovakia and Hungary. 

In addition to incredible European river cruise tours, we offer a wide selection of trips around southeast Asia, Africa, America and many other destinations.

Get on board a Bhaya Classic vessel to discover undisturbed pockets of Indochina, journeying through dramatic riverscapes. Or, take in the vast contrasts of Chile, from dry deserts to sparkling lakes and awe-inspiring glaciers during our Patagonia to Cape Horn river cruise tour.

Designed to give you the chance to do as much or as little as you’d like, our escorted river cruise tours provide passengers with many optional activities alongside the scheduled excursions. Once you are back on your vessel, you’ll have the opportunity to unwind, relax, and eat and drink in one of the elegant dining rooms, before heading to your comfortable cabin for some rest before your next adventure.
