Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home, for your flight to Basel.

Upon arrival, embark MS Serenade 1 (4T), where light refreshments are available.

A welcome cocktail and captain’s gala dinner are served this evening.


Day 2 - Basel (Mount Rigi)

Photo-worthy views of Switzerland’s mountain scenery are on the cards today.

We take a coach down to Arth-Goldau station, then journey up the slopes of Mount Rigi by cogwheel train. At the top, there’s plenty of time to roam around and soak up the scenery. Vistas from the various viewpoints up here sweep across the rolling hills of the Mittelland and snow-dusted Swiss Alps, with sunlight glistening on the waters of a dozen-odd lakes.

After riding the train back down, we take a steamboat across Lake Lucerne to its namesake city.

You have some free time to explore, before we head back to Basel by coach.

Day 2 - Basel (Mount Rigi)

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 3 - Breisach

Having cruised across the border into Germany overnight, we awake in the pretty town of Breisach.

We’ve got most of the day here – spend your time exploring the town, or join an optional trip through the Black Forest to Lake Titisee, a beautiful glacial lake with a backdrop of wooded mountains.

As well as cruising the lake, we take a guided walking tour in Triberg.

Day 3 - Breisach

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 4 - Strasbourg

Delve into the UNESCO-listed old town of Strasbourg today. Discover its cobblestone streets and half-timbered houses on foot and by boat, with an expert local guide bringing the centuries-old sights to life.

One of the city’s highlights is its cathedral, a 15th century Gothic masterpiece with sky-scraping spires.

Day 4 - Strasbourg

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 5 - Mainz - Lorelei Passage - Koblenz

Today begins in Mainz, Germany’s capital during the reign of the Romans. Tour the rose-pink cathedral and view the collections in the Gutenberg Museum and Landesmuseum at leisure; or journey south for an optional walking tour of Speyer and its 1,000-year-old cathedral.

We set off early this afternoon to begin our cruise down the Lorelei Passage (one of the narrowest stretches of the Rhine) and through the spectacular scenery of the Upper Middle Rhine Valley.

We arrive in our next port of call, Koblenz, in the early evening.

Day 5 - Mainz - Lorelei Passage - Koblenz

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 6 - Koblenz - Cologne

From museums to medieval churches, cathedrals to café-lined squares, there’s plenty to see.

Day 6 - Koblenz - Cologne

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 7 - Amsterdam

We glide into Amsterdam around lunchtime today. As well as seeing the sights by coach, we board a canal boat to see the city’s beautiful bridges and famously wonky townhouses from the water.

The captain’s farewell gala dinner is served this evening.

We remain moored here overnight, so if you have a chance, go for a walk along the canals after sunset, when strings of lights illuminate the bridges.

Day 7 - Amsterdam

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 8 - Amsterdam- UK

We transfer to the airport for your return flight to the UK.

Upon arrival, your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.

Travel with us and your holiday starts the moment you step out your front door. There’s no worry about taxi fares, train timetables or having to lug your bags on public transport – we take care of the whole journey for you.

Hassle-free transfers*
As the pioneers of door-to-door transfers, our service is industry-leading. No matter where you’re flying from, our drivers will pick you up from home (or another address if that’s easier) and take you to your departure airport. When you return, they’ll be waiting at the terminal to bring you back home again. If you’ve chosen to stay in a hotel the night before your flight, that’s not a problem – we’ll collect you the day before and take you to the hotel.

Everyone’s a VIP – no matter how far you are from the airport
We won’t ask you to pay extra just because you live further away. There are no mileage limits or supplements to pay for our airport transfers – we cover every UK address (with the exception of the Scottish Islands and Sark, where we’ll pick you up from a mainland address of your choice).

*The majority of our VIP door-to-door service transfers are not exclusive to one holiday booking and journeys to and from the airport may be undertaken via additional addresses and may involve a change of vehicle.
