Travelling solo

Hi @BillyB1 very few if any river cruise lines include gratuities. The Danube is a great place to cruise, I arrived home from doing this 2 weeks ago.


From the Travel Village (Blackpool) they informed me of a singles cruise down the Danube and said they would keep me updated about any further single holidays. The Danube river cruise was with Riviera and was really great. Only thing I personally don’t get is the tipping method as I would prefer it being included in the package and you can still tip any good service if you want too ! ! !


Hello Madeline.
Are you planning to visit three countries over the one trip or you need some suggestions to choose from?

Madeline – this itinerary from Railbookers takes the Glacier Express to Chur in Switzerland where travellers then board the Bernini Express to Tirana via St Moritz. It looks like a wonderful journey! https://www.railbookers.co.uk/holiday/classic-glacier-and-bernina-express/

The Man in Seat 61 is also a good source of information for rail travel. He includes the timetables here and advice on hotels for overnight stays :https://www.seat61.com/GlacierExpress.htm

I am going inter railing in March on my own any ideas
I was thinking of Austria Switzerland Italy
Do the glacier express and Bernini express meet at any station
