Part of being a good GTO is to do your homework but also to choose a good company to work with you, who will guide, help, support and give you back up when needed to ensure you have done everything you can for a smooth and successful trip for your group. Janet who runs the Groups department of Arena Travel gives you all of this every time, I was introduced to river cruising by the former River Cruise Line, now Arena Travel, twelve years ago. River cruising, not to be compared to Ocean cruising, is smooth, calm and so relaxing. Sit back on a comfortable armchair up on deck or in the comfortable lounge, and take in the ever changing scenery as you glide along.

My groups return time and time again, different itineraries, German Christmas Markets, the stunning gardens of Keukenhof , Floriade, exploring more and more of the Rhine, the Moselle and the beautiful Netherlands. In 2023 we will be returning to experience the amazing Rhine in Flames, an annual event celebrated along the Rhine something not to be missed. If you have never tried river cruising this would be a good way to start.
