River cruises are characterized by a relaxed pace of travel, meaning more time in each port and plenty of opportunities for excursions ashore. AmaWaterways is known for the quality of its shore excursions, many of which are included in the cost of the cruise. Adventurous travelers can book a walking tour and experience the city's sights and sounds up close, while other passengers may prefer a relaxing bus tour where they can soak up the commentary from a knowledgeable guide. Bicycles are available for rental at no extra cost on European cruises. Additionally, many river ports deliver ships right into the heart of the city, meaning you'll be able to walk straight from your stateroom to the historic city center in a matter of minutes.
