We have just returned from our amazing 15 day Amsterdam to Budapest. We had the best time, loved all the included tours and especially our tour director Evelyn , nothing was ever too much trouble. We would like to Thankyou for the ease of change of boats after a barge got stuck and boats were banked up, we went from the AMA verde to AMA Bella without fuss .
This trip exceeded our expectations.
We loved our suite the owners plus certainly worth every penny. We highly recommend this tour and apt

My wife and I have just returned from a fabulous trip, The Best of The Corner Country.
The APT duo - Andrew and Arn were friendly, helpful etc.
The food was plentiful, tasty - especially at The Playford Hotel in Adelaide - our start & finish location.
Food breaks were timely.
And we visited some iconic places - Ikara - Flinders Ranges National Park [bloody cold], Marree, a scenic flight over Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre, Travelled the iconic Birdsville Track, ate a curried camel pie at the Birdsville Bakery and survived, Saw some guys make 'fools' of themselves trying to climb BIG RED in their 4WDs. O I could go on.
There are some great pubs and locals out there - see for yourselves.
Thanks once again Andrew and Arn and our fellow travellers.

My trip started in Paris on their 21 day cruise from Paris to Prague .
Where do I start ...the Paris accommodation meet every expectation, then on to Amsterdam and boarded our ship MS AMA Venita
Well, what a absolutely amazing time was had by myself and the wonderful group of fellow travelers, right from the first night my thoughts of being a solo traveler and feeling awkward disappeared .
The service from this top class crew was in my opinion top level. It would be hard to mention just one person and leave out the rest but for the group I hung out with the MS AMA Venita was renamed MS Party Ship !!
Every night the super barman Alex, put up with us and made sure we were not going thirsty I think we kept him quite busy
The Cruise Director ...Cheri Coll ......amazing,brilliant at her job,her level of energy never fell away!
The entertainment at night was fun and I attended every night, following that we had the music maestro ...Peter....his love of music showed through and he had most of us up dancing till late into evening ...Thanks Peter
My suite was just perfect. The food and service was top drawer also
Would I recommend to my friends 100%i would, I am thinking of another cruise September 2019
The highlight for me was when Captain Rozsmann turned our Party Ship around in Budapest at night when all the lights were on and took us back up the glorious Danube to experience the sight ...Magnificent night.
Do the trip, if you think this is the adventure for you. I hope you have the brilliant crew we had. Well done APT !

We did the Budapest to Amsterdam cruise in April and it was brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble and the daily tours were classy and there was a good variety. Gunter was a gem. The last thing he said as we left at Amsterdam was to be careful of the cyclists as they are dangerous and the streets are red with the blood of tourists. I hadn’t realised how true that was as almost immediately my husband was startled by a hoard of cyclists and he fell and broke his hand. If anyone wants to know it costs E300 to get in the hospital door if you are a tourist.
