Treasures of the Rhine
Day 1 UK - Basel
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home, for your flight to Basel. Upon arrival, embark our ship, where light refreshments are available.
Day 2 Basel (Mount Rigi)
Our first stop on our Rhine river cruise is Basel. Hop aboard a cogwheel train for an exciting journey to the top of Rigi Kulm, Mount Rigi’s highest peak. From the top, we’ll enjoy sweeping views of the glistening lakes and mountains below. Once you’ve had your fill of the sights, we’ll take the cogwheel down to Vitznau where we’ll glide across Lake Lucerne on a relaxing steamboat. Lucerne itself is stunning and we’ll have some time here to explore before returning to our ship.
