									EUROPEAN RIVER
  CRUISING –
SCENIC TOURS
Scenic Tours                     Explore River Cruising with Scenic Tours. As you glide effortlessly
                                 through the heart of Europe's iconic cities and majestic countryside, lose
                                 yourself in the moment with no packing and unpacking each day and life
                                 on board that's akin to travelling in a five-star floating hotel.

                                 For a vacation that is out of this world – you need a space ship! Scenic
                                 Tours‟ exclusively designed “space ships” offer you more public and
                                 private space. Relax in the spacious Panorama Lounge and Bar - and
                                 enjoy breathtaking views through floor to ceiling windows. And three
                                 outdoor viewing areas provide generous vantage points from which to
                                 admire the fairytale landscape of Europe.

                                 These are the newest and most modern fleet on Europe's waterways –
                                 and, unique amongst River Cruise companies, Scenic Tours feature full
                                 private outdoor balconies. You'll enjoy unmatched comfort with stylish
                                 appointments and excellent amenities. These include a flat screen TV
                                 and infotainment system plus wireless Internet access. In your
                                 luxurious en suite bathroom, you'll find a selection of exquisite
                                 L'Occitane products, plush bathrobes and, of course, a hairdryer. Crisp
                                 Egyptian linens and individual climate control provides absolute comfort
                                 with nightly turndown service, for that final touch.

                                 These innovative ships also offer a choice of restaurants and Butler
                                 service. Three separate dining areas provide added variety and choice.
                                 The main restaurant is larger than normal for River Cruising as well - and
                                 so provides single-sitting dining and you have the choice of a cozy table
                                 for two, or dining with friends at tables of four or six.

                                 Scenic Tours provide an array of exciting European itineraries from 8 to
                                 34 days. Your Scenic Tours “Space Ship” takes you on a cruise to the

                                 drinks, sightseeing options, tipping, evening entertainment – even
                                 exclusive special events like a concert in Vienna.

                                 staterooms with outdoor balconies and a selection of viewing areas.
                                 Differentiating the Scenic fleet from its European river competitors,
                                 Scenic vessels offer passengers ships that are 20 metres longer. This
                                 allows Scenic to offer private balconies in 82 per cent of their rooms.
                                 In addition, private butler service is available on the top deck.
Options                          Travellers interested in moving through Europe at their own pace may be
                                 interested to learn more about Scenic Tours‟ FreeTime, Free Choice and
                                 Enrich options. Meant to enable Scenic guests to choose how they want
                                 to discover every destination, each offers unique ways for travellers to
                                 explore a given port depending on their particular taste.
                                 For example, one Scenic passenger can choose to go on a guided
                                 walking tour of Würzburg to see Prince Bishop‟s Residenz Palace, while
                                 another may want to enjoy a self-guided bicycle tour of the Bavarian
                                 town.

                                 Scenic FreeTime choices are a new addition to the brochure and are
                                 available at no extra cost. FreeTime provides clients with an audio

                                 use to meander along the waterways of each new port of call. The
                                 FreeTime service is available in Amsterdam, Bamberg, Vienna and
                                 Heidelberg.

                                 activities, but again, at no extra cost. A selection of options are available
                                 in cities such as Amsterdam, Wertheim, Vienna and more, and include

History of Scenic                Australian Glen Moroney founded Scenic Tours in 1987. In the early
Tours                            days, the company specialized in offering coach trips to the Australian
                                 coast for residents of Melbourne. He later grew that domestic business
                                 to include tours to theatre and special events such as Expo ‟88 in
                                 Brisbane.
                                 In the late „90‟s, he realized that Scenic Tours had developed such a
                                 reputation for quality and service that clients would travel further afield
                                 with them. Hence, the expansion to Norfolk Island in the South Pacific,
                                 New Zealand, Canada and the USA, South Africa and China.
                                 The company continued to grow and purchased Evergreen Tours in
                                 1998. Evergreen Tours has grown to become a leader in the budget
                                 touring market, offering a wide range of tours throughout Australia, New
                                 Zealand, Canada & Alaska, and Europe.
                                 Today, privately owned Scenic Tours is one of the largest and most
                                 successful tour operators in Australia.
                                 In 2007, Scenic opened its own office in Vancouver to serve travel
                                 agents and clients from both Canada and the USA.
                                 Scenic Tours is not only a leader in luxury land tours - 2008 hailed the
                                 long anticipated launch of the Scenic "Space-Ships" in the European
                                 River Cruising market. The Scenic Sapphire and Scenic Emerald were
                                 launched in July 2008, with Scenic taking delivery of Scenic Diamond
                                 and Scenic Ruby in February and March 2009.
                                 Scenic Pearl will join the fleet early in 2011.

                                 As you glide effortlessly through the very heart of Europe's iconic cities
                                 and majestic countryside, it's easy to lose yourself in the moment.

                                 'Space-Ships' is akin to travelling in a five-star floating hotel.

                                 Larger staterooms and suites with exclusive outdoor balconies

                                 Scenic 'Space-Ships' are a new generation of river cruise ships. At 135

                                 vessels and have two entire decks of balcony cabins. That's 82% of all
                                 cabins. As a result, Private Balcony Suites are 24% larger than normal,
                                 and offer exceptional comfort. Each has its own private full size outdoor
                                 balcony, while Royal and Junior Suites, and suites on the superior
                                 Danube Deck, enjoy the services of a private butler.

                                 20% larger than those on standard river cruise ships. Three outdoor
                                 viewing areas provide generous vantage points from which to admire the
                                 fairytale landscape of the Rhine. The 5 meter (16 foot) Observation
                                 Lounge, a teak deck at the bow of the ship, is a favourite.
