Premier Collection

4.9 out of 5 (263 Reviews)

Our Premier Collection has been curated by our staff to offer the very best in bike & boat travel.

This collection features boats and barges that we have personally inspected and that continue to garner rave reviews year after year.

You explore routes filled with Old World charm, culture, and history while enjoying the benefits of small-ship cruising. Nothing small about the ammendities however.

Breakfasts are abundant, getting you ready for your active day, and dinners are a celebration. You earned it! Picnic lunches out and about allow you to sit and soak up the sun in an ancient town square or sit riverside with friends as the boats glide by. The crew and guides on board are knowledgeable not only about their ship but the surrounding areas.

These bike and boat tours are perfect for family, friends, and groups to charter an entire vessel all your own.

Come! Bike, boat, and make your memories.

The lovely Merlijn is a diva, for sure. What makes her special? Is it the luxurious cabins with most comfortable beds you have ever slept in? Is it the lovely dining area with the large windows and skylight that let the air, light, and sun pour in? Or perhaps it is the sun deck, where you can relax with newfound friends, sharing good wine and good conversation. We think you will find it is the entire divine package!

The beautiful Quo Vadis is a Deluxe barge. It is known for its food, both locally sourced and organically grown, prepared by an outstanding chef. The owner of the boat is also your captain and delights in making his home, your home.

The Iris offers an interior that is fresh, tasteful and comfortable. With a capacity for 24 passengers, it provides the perfect smaller setting to make new friends and discover the joy of biking and boating.
