The Danube Express has introduced its most flexible service to date, with independent and fully escorted holidays both offered.

Among the highlights of the train’s new 2010 programme is a choice of six Express Journeys with departure dates in May, June and September.


The journeys include an itinerary with a full sightseeing programme, all meals plus complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks and the services of a train manager.

New for 2010, guests can opt for a Combined Journey, which joins together two or more journeys to create a mixed adventure.

Fully escorted holidays include rail or air travel from the UK, half-board accommodation in four-star accommodation, additional sightseeing, transfers, porterage and the services of a tour manager throughout.

There is also the option available at a supplement, to travel from or return to the UK by rail, for those who prefer not to fly.

As an example of prices, The Transylvanian travels from Budapest to Istanbul, with sightseeing stops in Transylvania and Bulgaria en route.

It costs £2,490 per person and is also available as an eight-day fully escorted holiday from £3,390.
