Prices start from £2,195pp, including return flights and home-to-airport transfers by private car.
APT managing director Paul Melinis said: “Our agent partners and customers have been telling us about their desire to lock in future travel plans, as we all try to make up for time lost over the last 18 months.
“2023 is going to be a big year for travel and we anticipate that the kind of multi-destination trips that have been so challenging in recent times will be hugely popular.
“As such, we are releasing our best-selling European and Russian river cruises for sale early to help the trade start to capitalise on that demand, and give their clients something fantastic to start looking forward to.”
Covid-flexible booking policies continue to be offered on all APT and Travelmarvel bookings.
