We take great pride in facilitating authentic cultural encounters, such as visits to local markets, demonstrations by local artisans and music and dance performances. We strive to create exclusive experiences in every port and offer a choice of excursions whenever possible. Of course, you always have the option to simply walk into town, borrow a bicycle to explore on your own or on a guided bike tour, or simply relax on board. AMAWATERWAYS shore excursions also vary in terms of physical exertion. “Gentle Walkers” stroll at a leisurely pace, “Regular Walkers” move at an average clip, “Active Walkers” go at a faster pace to cover more ground, and in many ports we have a “Late Starters” group for those who like to sleep in. No matter which pace you select, your tour will be led by a licensed English-speaking guide with extensive local knowledge. Recruited for their enthusiasm, resourcefulness and “insider” expertise, our top-notch guides bring each destination’s history, people and culture vibrantly alive. And you will never miss a word your guide says, thanks to our complimentary lightweight audio headsets. CULINARY DELIGHTS - BITES & SIGHTS Passionate about food? Treat yourself to the “Culinary Delights – Bites & Sights” tours offered on our European itineraries. Led by local food experts, these optional excursions let you experience the history, culture and distinct flavors of your destination in a truly unique and memorable way.

One of our guests’ favorite places to cycle is along the Danube River, a region ripe with castle ruins, fragrant fruit orchards and sprawling, centuries-old vineyards.
