Time-poor but still keen to experience Europe's waterways? Evergreen Cruises & Tours has launched a new campaign to promote shorter-length river trips for those short on holidays or wanting to top and tail their cruise with their own travel.
Check out their eight-day Jewels of the Rhine river cruise, from Amsterdam through Cologne, Koblenz and the Black Forest to Zurich, passing no fewer than 21 medieval castles. It offers a saving of up to $2000 per couple, now on special from $3385 per person, including cruising the Rhine Gorge and an authentic Black Forest gateau-tasting.
