While you sail along the rivers of Egypt, Europe or Asia, Viking Rivers wants you to enjoy not just the serene beauty of the ports you’ll see, but to also get a great primer on the local cultures. That’s why on their river ships you’ll enjoy performances by local singers and dancers, along with demonstrations by local chefs. There are also lectures planned throughout your cruise on the history, traditions and language of the nearby regions.
