Join author, chef, teacher and culinary tour guide, Jenny Morris, one of South Africa’s most loved food personalities for a medieval themed evening in Gothic Prague before relishing culinary journey along the River Danube experiencing the flavours of Eastern Europe.

Arriving in Prague you’ll have three nights to discover one of Europe’s most celebrated cities, a lavish capital awash with grand Baroque architecture and an enviable cultural history. Delve into its treasures at one of several first-class museums and sample the beer, which has been brewed and perfected by the people of this region for centuries.

You’ll also enjoy a medieval themed evening hosted by Jenny Morris, during their stay in Prague. Held at the Tavern U Krale Brababantskeho, the oldest pub in Prague, enjoy medieval music from a live band and medieval food specialties prepared over an open fire during an evening to remember!

Following your stay, you’ll then transfer to Passau where you’ll embark A-ROSA RIVA, a sleek ship that has been designed not only to elegantly ply some of the world’s most historic rivers, but to offer guests a true sense of luxury, comfort and a feeling of home-away-from-home.

Begin your Danube discovery with a stop in beautiful Vienna, home to grand imperial palaces and a treasure trove of museums filled with masterpieces. Rich in musical heritage, embrace the atmosphere of a spectacular concert or wander the cobbled streets and hear the soothing tones of classical music playing from the buildings.

Next, you’ll arrive in Budapest for an overnight stay in port before disembarking and flying home. The atmospheric Hungarian capital is known for its thermal baths dating back centuries – an unmissable experience - and historic buildings perched on the Danube’s banks. Explore Buda on the hills overlooking the city, as well as the lively Pest.

At Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, those with a head for heights will love the views from the UFO observation tower on top of the SNP Bridge, and there’s another perspective offered by the hill-top Bratislava Castle.

Your final stop before disembarking back in Passau is the enchanting Wachau Valley, where you’ll stop at the sleepy village of Melk.
