As your trip leader who just experienced a fabulous Danube River Cruise this year, I can personally recommend this wonderful trip to all!  Please contact me if you have any questions or need more information. Our BAC Castro Valley Ski Club had an excellent experience on their GCCL 2023 Christmas cruise.

"Christmas trees aglow with white candles...the wafting harmonies of Handel, Bach, and the strains of “Silent Night”...sumptuous gingerbread cakes...handmade wood carvings...and the warm, happy spirit of the season is all around you. On this popular holiday getaway, you can touch the essence of Christmas in Europe during a private River Cruise through the most beloved ports of Austria and Germany. You’ll explore the region’s craft-filled Christmas markets exclusively in the company of like-minded American travelers and view storybook medieval towns in all their holiday finery."
