Calling all "foodies" and "history junkies" - European river cruises can provide the ideal "mix"

We are quite enchanted by a recent post on the Tasteful Journeys Blog at highlighting the benefits of European river cruises. 

If you're a lover of food and wine who also likes to travel, then sampling the local cuisine prepared by celebrity chefs and visiting Medieval seaports and historic cities while you are taking a European river cruise can be the ideal "mix" for you.

We agree wholeheartedly.  We like the fact that you only have to unpack once and have one "lodging base" for the duration of your trip  -- which is how Snobby Tours®, Inc. plans most of its custom itineraries as well.  We've found that many travelers prefer to settle in and not have to check in/check out frequently during a trip.

We also like the fact that there is a "backup plan" which makes European river cruising virtually "weather-proof".  If there is a drought and the rivers are too low for cruising, then motorcoaches can still take you to the sights on the itinerary.  

According to the Tasteful Journeys Blog, generally the best time of year to take a European river cruise is between April and October.
