Cruise the lovely blue Danube – no other river in the world flows through as many countries.

The Danube flows through much of Central and Southeastern Europe, from the Black Forest into the Black Sea. The Danube was once a long-standing frontier of the Roman Empire and today is the river running through the largest number of countries in the world.  Originating in Germany, the Danube flows southeast passing through or bordering Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova and Ukraine before draining into the Black Sea.

Enjoy this fabulous cruise through history hosted by your favorite tour managers, Chris McCool and Deb Howard.
