RADIO hosts Moyd Kay and Loretta Ryan have teamed up to offer a European adventure from Vienna to the Black Sea through a Caloundra travel agent.
Globus and Harvey World Travel Caloundra are promoting the 22-day journey with the 4BC afternoon presenters through the ancient cities of the Balkans with an unforgettable Avalon Waterways river cruise along the Danube from Hungary to Romania.
The one-off tour includes flights with Singapore Airlines, all accommodation, transport, a seven-night cruise and most meals and activities. It departs from Brisbane on September 9. It costs from $9978 a person twin share.
Highlights of the overland tour include Croatia's spectacular Dalmatian coast between Split and Dubrovnik, the picturesque streets and baroque buildings of the Slovenian capital Ljubljana, and the grand boulevards and gothic landmarks of the Hungarian capital Budapest.
From Budapest, the group boards the luxury cruise ship Avalon Imagery for an exotic journey along the Danube towards the Black Sea.
Exploring reaches of the river rarely seen on other river cruises, the Imagery will sail through the heart of the former Austro-Hungarian empire and into Bulgaria and Romania.
The cruise sails past landmarks like the grand Petrovaradin Fortress at Novi Sad and through the dramatic Iron Gates Gorge, where towering cliffs separate Serbia and Romania and provide some of the Danube's most magnificent scenery.
Day excursions visit historic towns like Veliko Tarnovo, Arbanassi, and the resort city of Varna on the Black Sea, before the journey concludes in the Romanian capital of Bucharest.
