A-Rosa River Cruises has launched its Destination Scouts concept to provide “insider knowledge and local tips on key cities on the Rhine and Danube”.
The project is part of the line’s efforts to make their European river cruises “more authentic, more immersive and more inclusive”, a statement said.
It is working with local experts in key destinations on selected routes to provide guests with insider tips and experiences to maximise their time ashore.
Destination Scouts will advise A-Rosa’s on-board excursion expert on all the latest destination insight and local knowledge on their given city, so it can be shared with guests on board.
In addition, on specific itineraries and dates, the Destination Scouts also come on board and share their tips directly with guests, such as in Mainz, with Paul, Simon and Bjorn from MainzGuide (pictured).
A-Rosa ‘delving deeper’
The destinations tips will include advice on best places to go shopping, top restaurants and cafes to visit, and the best and newest exhibitions that might be of interest.
Experts will also share their thoughts on “hidden gems that are away from the main attractions”, A-Rosa added.
A-Rosa CEO Jorg Eichler said: “Sharing our Destination Scouts’ knowledge with our guests means they are able delve even deeper into the city they are visiting.
“The Rhine and Danube feature some incredible cities bursting with unique culture, art and history.
“We are delighted to be working with a host of knowledgeable locals who will share valuable insight into their hometowns as well as tips on local activities, culinary delights and much more.”
In March, A-Rosa revealed it will offer swimming lessons on A-Rosa Sena later this year.
