We offer three different tour categories – Silver, Gold and Platinum.
The difference between the tour categories are the hotels and/or room types included, as well as the comfort level on the trains and overnight cruises.
Please refer to the listed accommodation and the services included for each tour for a full overview of the services included. Unique accommodations are described in more detail in the tour itineraries.

Some tours might only be bookable in Silver and/or Gold.
