Play Bridge & Explore

If you’re looking for a relaxed holiday with duplicate bridge, our Play & Explore holidays are ideal. Less competitive than our club standard holidays and suitable for players of all levels, these tours combine a relaxed bridge programme with smaller group sizes and beautiful destinations. Our Play & Explore collection of holidays will include at least two excursions or an activity pass in the package, making them ideal for the explorer at heart.

Play Bridge and Explore the Danube River Cruise 

When time is of the essence, but compromising on quality isn’t an option, this condensed but perfectly planned river cruise could be just what you’re looking for. Set sail from the ‘three rivers city’ of Passau and embark on an unforgettable journey through the heart of Europe. Discover the delights of Strauss’ famous Danube from the comfort of MS Arena, taking time to explore scenic and historical stops along the way. Take in the beauty of the Wachau Valley as you visit the Austrian town of Melk; a cluster of terracotta rooftops among a forest of green. You can take advantage of a full day in the UNESCO World Heritage city of Vienna, plus another full day in the breathtakingly beautiful city of Budapest. You’ll be amazed just how much you’ll see on this idyllic adventure.

Included to enhance your holiday:

  • Vienna city tour
  • Budapest city tour
  • Puszta horse show
