Founded in 1984, Riviera Travel has been providing personalised tours of some of the most beautiful rivers in the world for more than 31 years. The company has their roots in coach touring, as they originally provided trips to Paris, but today they have evolved to become the largest overseas escorted tour operator in Britain.
Riviera Travel offer itineraries across four continents, and strive to provide the best value for money packages they possibly can. Their staff undergo annual resort-based training, enabling them to advise their customers on a personal level.
What is the Riviera difference?
Handcrafted holidays with authentic experiences
Like you, we love to travel. Our team of experts personally selects every aspect of your holiday so that it is thoughtfully balanced and honed to perfection. Between our exceptional fleet of ships and our handpicked hotels, you can rest assured that you'll be exploring the world in comfort.
While you travel, you're looked after by our talented team of Tour Managers and Cruise Directors. Together, we ensure that you'll get fascinating perspectives on the culture, history, gastronomy, art and architecture of the places you visit. You'll step off the tourist trail and beyond the pages of a guide book, discovering hidden gems, mingling with the locals, and exploring lesser-known but equally beautiful places.
Your holiday – your way
We give you the flexibility and choice to enhance your holiday and make it your own.
Everyone’s idea of the perfect holiday is different and we like to give you the freedom to customise your travel experience. You can add on extras to your holiday, such as drinks packages or hotel upgrades, or even extend your holiday with a City Stay or Tour Extension.
Opt for a convenient door-to-door service with transport from your home to your choice of regional airport, available as an added optional with every holiday. We also offer a Travel Concierge service for all river cruises which allows you to add on up to two days pre- or post-departure either at the airport or at your destination.
On many of our holidays we also offer thoughtfully crafted itinerary choices and you may wish to personalise your holiday further with one of these fascinating experiences. Just get in touch with our friendly reservations team for more information.
So much included
At Riviera Travel, we include everything you need for an exceptional holiday in the price. All our holidays come with the services of an experienced Tour Manager or Cruise Director on hand to ensure your holiday runs smoothly and take care of you, and unlike some of our competitors, all the guided tours, visits to attractions and experiences described in the itineraries are fully included. Plus of course, accommodation in hand-picked hotels or on luxury ships, regional flights or rail from the UK and all transfers.
