Our European tour was of the Rhine River. The boat was very comfortable, the food was excellent, the staff was accommodating. All the basics were quite well done. We were disappointed that a bus tour of Amsterdam was substituted for the promised canal tour. We were also disappointed that the promised location in downtown was not available and that we were moored in an outlying industrial area where it was difficult to walk around the City. The river tour was interesting but it was mostly up to us to recognize where we were and what we were seeing. On a previous river trip with another company there was an historian available to comment and interpret. All in all it was a good trip but not what we had expected from the advertisements. As a comment, it would be helpful if suggested that people on a "redeye" flight plan to spend a night in a hotel prior to starting this tour. We were exhausted and not able to profit much from day one.
