Kilimanjaro Shira Route

Just got back from Mt. Kilimanjaro with my son (we both made it to the peak) and the experience exceeded my expectations in every regard. It was better that I had hoped for and I want to thank you very much for all the assistance, hand holding, and help before the trip. I had never done anything like this, but I can't wait to try it again.

The Danube by Bike & Boat

Europe's second longest river, the Danube, courses through ten nations en route to the Black Sea. This itinerary follows its journey through three European countries and some of the most romantic European landscapes. From the cobblestone streets of charming Passau head out into Austria, winding your way past enchanting monasteries and majestic castles. By boat cruise the Danube through Upper Austria and Slovakia to reach the vibrant city of Bratislava and the romantic Austrian capital of Vienna, one of the most magical cities in Europe. Heading west, the pace slows down, with a memorable cycle across the Wachau Valley past rolling vineyards, hill top castles, meadows and forests to encounter atmospheric landscapes and sites of arresting history. Enjoy the atmosphere of life on board with like minded active travellers, sampling local culinary delights and relaxing atop the sundeck with splendid views of the changing scenery.

traveller reviews

Every day had special memories - the view of the Danube Loop from top was definitely a WOW. The beautiful wine region, small villages with special cafés. The people we met, the service onboard including the tour Director Andres..

This type of trip is a perfect way to explore the countryside, villages and history while keeping in shape. The ship ‘Theodore Korner’ has everything you need it is very nice, recently renovated and staff offer great service. The bikes are great, staff is there to store them for you when you arrive at the end of the day and have them ready for you when you leave in the morning all you need to do is get on ride and enjoy the day. For the self-guided the tour Director provides good briefings and available for additional questions and guidance.
