“Extraordinary Experiences!” – Ama Tours

On an AmaWaterways river cruise, you don’t just pass through a destination — you experience it with Ama Tours. Each one itinerary is crafted with a paramount goal in mind: connecting you to the essence of life in each place you visit in small groups to facilitate access to sights and landmarks, a more intimate setting, and more encounters with the locals. Take your time as you explore, get to know your fellow travellers better and find opportunities for up-close experiences. Every tour is led by a local, English-speaking guide who is very knowledgeable in the culture and history of the place you are visiting.

“We realise that our guests have different tastes, so we’ve developed a menu of shore excursions in every port of call. In many destinations, you’ll be free to choose from one of several options — all of which are included in your cruise fare. There’s always a city tour designed to show you all the renowned highlights and landmarks in grand capitals and charming villages alike.” – Ama Waterways
