Why Riviera River Cruises?

Passionate about Travel - it's probably an overused phrase - and a brave claim - but we genuinely believe we are more passionate about our holidays than any other Tour Operator. Why? Firstly because we only operate to places we're truly passionate about and in a manner to match.

After all, if we cannot be passionate about what we do, how can we expect our clients to be? Plus within every aspect of our entire cruise collection, we spend an inordinate amount of time on painstaking research, examining the tiniest detail, constantly evolving what we do and adding so many subtle touches. We aim to create not just a travel experience, but also one of genuine pleasure, education and entertainment.

We offer you an unforgettable journey through time and culture, breaking through any obvious 'veneer'; to the real destination beyond. Of course, you see the classic sights many with guided tours, but you also visit fascinating, probably more intimate places, perhaps less known but often even more intriguing. Your included and substantial range of hugely informative tours are sometimes on foot, but at other times explore a little further afield too - so you learn and appreciate fully the countries through which you journey. Our unique combination and our simple, honest approach have served us well over the years and illustrates with great clarity why so many of you voted for us, resulting in the prestigious travel awards we currently hold. We realize we can never achieve perfection, but we will never stop trying, and the harder we try the more we will always exceed our clients' expectations!

A Passion For Quality - No Compromise

When you travel on a Riviera cruise, you can be completely sure that all aspects of it will have been worked on with passion, to obtain the best quality result. With many companies, even some household names, this may not always be the case - especially if they simply 'badge' a tour already operated by a local company in your chosen destination. This often results in disjointed multilingual commentaries, or an itinerary that isn't as tailored as you'd expected. We personally select every single element of our holidays - from hotels and suppliers, to local guides and visits - so they're exactly right for our clientele, with absolutely no compromise. All of our tours are managed by our own tour managers, who have been trained by us. Plus you'll have 24 hour emergency telephone help if required, for complete peace of mind.

From Listening Carefully For 30 years

We've always worked hard not just to meet, but to exceed the expectations of our discerning clients - by listening to them extremely carefully over the years and evolving our holidays accordingly. So when you travel, you can rest assured we've done all the hard work for you.

Independent Choice, Unbiased Advice

We're passionate about being an independent company - not part of a large, multinational, often impersonal organisation. This precious independence and our investment in research and people mean we're free to create the very best holidays, whilst providing the best value for money. All our staff undergo intensive resort-based annual training, building unrivalled knowledge so they can advise you personally about your holiday, based on their own invaluable experience. This passion and commitment to quality, thoughtfulness and value are our guaranteed hallmarks. With Riviera River Cruises, helpfulness with a smile comes as standard - we care about your holiday as much as you do! Add this to the awards we have received and why would you entrust your plans to anyone else?
