Big Head Todd and the Monsters will be sailing the smooth waters of the legendary Danube River in 2019. Not only will this be one to remember as our first adventure in river cruising, but our custom itinerary from Budapest to Deggendorf has us sailing through one of the most highly touted regions of river cruising in the world. Combine the palaces and museums of Vienna, the castles and abbeys of the Wachau Valley, and the bier and sausage of Bavaria and it is a recipe for an amazing experience. Throw in some intimate live performances from Big Head Todd and the Monsters and it is bound to be a memory of a lifetime. (Did we mention Hazel Miller will be gracing us with her sounds as well?). In addition to the week long cruise we will be offering a post-cruise land package for a few nights in Prague. A perfect way to end an incredible European holiday with special friends.
