Day 1 We make our way to Dover for the Channel crossing. Once in France we travel south to our overnight hotel (half board).

Day 2 After breakfast we drive to Strasbourg, with suitable stops along the way, and board the MS Monet late afternoon. There is a welcome cocktail before dinner on board. During the night we sail to Breisach, Germany.

Day 3 After breakfast on board, join the excursion to the National Automobile Museum in Mulhouse, which houses a wonderful collection of over 500 exceptional cars including a Type 16 Peugeot from 1898, Bugattis from the 1920s and a custom-made Delahaye from 1949. We return on board for lunch and spend the afternoon cruising along the Rhine to Basel, Switzerland. Tonight, enjoy a Gala Dinner on board.

Day 4 Today we travel on the remarkable Glacier Express! By coach we drive to Andermatt passing Lake Lucerne on our way. At Andermatt we board the wonderful Glacier Express where the Oberalp Pass begins. The train winds its way upwards to 2034m, the highest point of the journey, and travels through vistas of hidden Alpine villages, dramatic snow-tipped mountainscapes, over bridges and through green valleys. During our 2½ hour journey, the large bay windows give wonderful access to the views and we have lunch served on board. At Chur we rejoin our coach to return to Basel where our ship is moored.

Day 5 Our tour takes us by coach to Lake Constance and the beautiful Mainau – a gorgeous garden island with a 150-year-old arboretum with giant sequoias, palms, 12,000 roses, a palm house and one of Germany’s largest butterfly houses. After an included lunch, we reboard our coach to visit the Rhine Falls, the largest in Europe and one of the most spectacular sights in Switzerland. We return to Basel or Breisach to reboard our ship, then cruise toward Strasbourg during the night.

Day 6 After our buffet breakfast, our ship completes our cruise to Strasbourg. There will be a little free time before our final lunch on board MS Monet. We disembark early afternoon and travel by coach to our overnight hotel (half board).

Day 7 Leaving our hotel after breakfast, we travel via the motorways to Calais/Dunkirk for our Channel crossing. We continue back to the south coast, reaching the local area late evening.
