We just completed a 15 day Amsterdam to Budapest cruise and it was really great. Our ship was spotless...with all the chrome and glass you can only imagine the amount of polishing to keep fingerprint free. Also, the baked Alaska was as good as any 5 star ocean cruise (probably as good as 6 star but I've never sailed on a 6 star ship). I highly recommend Emerald if you are thinking about a river cruise. By the way we were docked directly across from the Parliament building and the views at night were spectacular.

Absolutely outstanding and fun crew on the Sun from Amsterdam to Budapest in mid-october! Very clean and comfortable ship and rooms. Cruise Director Patricia did a great job keeping us all informed of activities and details. Hotel Director Robert obviously loves his job as well as his staff, since they all always made us feel welcome. All the staff did a great job.

Had an excellent 15 day cruise Amsterdam-Budapest on Emerald Sun May 30-June 13, 2015. The staff, the food, the cabin, the amenities on board exceeded expectations. The tours covered the right amount of history and important landmarks and highlights at each city/town. And we had enough free time at each port. Simona, our Cruise Director is extremely good at her job. Very personable, hardworking and engaging. She represents Emerald Waterways very well. Even though this boat was only launched in April 2015 , everything ran smoothly from the guests' perspective and the staff seemed to get along extremely well having only worked together for a short time. They all worked extremely hard at keeping all the guests happy. Would highly recommend Emerald Waterways.

Lantang valley trek was amazing. Everything was well managed and easy going. Sunrise adventure trek was a wonderful company they make everything was sure and safe. So I would like to come next time with this company for Everest base camp trek. I highly recommend everyone to use this company.

We had a wonderful experience with Sunrise Adventure Trek on our Annapurna Circuit trek last month. Our guide Ramesh was very good and very knowledgeable about the region, culture, flora fauna . Great value for money, with comfortable accommodation and outstanding food. I'd definitely use this company again.

My friend and I recently traveled to Nepal from the United States and had an amazing experience trekking to Annapurna Base Camp with sunrise adventure travel! We met Suresh in Kathmandu and he was incredibly helpful in setting up our trek and accommodation/activities in Pokhara post trek. Our guide, Palman (aka Paul) was amazing as well!! He was knowledgeable, patient, trustworthy, and kept us laughing with his hilarious sense of humor (which matched our own spot on!). Everything worked out exactly as Suresh promised that it would and he checked in before and after the trek to make sure that we were pleased with how things were going. We definitely felt that we were in good hands with both gentleman and would highly recommend Sunrise Adventure Travel. The prices were very fair and our experience was unbeatable. Thanks again, SAT!

    About Emerald Waterways

    Debuting in 2014, Emerald Waterways, sister company to Scenic Tours is already making a splash with its value-minded deluxe river cruises in Europe and Southeast Asia.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    With a new deluxe fleet, Emerald Waterways provides customers with stylish and spacious rooms and contemporary comfort. Unique on-board innovations include a glassed in heated swimming pool, which converts into a cinema, and outdoor dining spaces. They are value-conscious and strive to make the river cruise experience accessible to everyone. Cruises are all-inclusive taking the headache out of scheduling add-ons, extras, and transport. 

    Who Travels With Them?

    Travelers who enjoy a relaxing, insightful river cruise experience will love going on an Emerald Waterways River Cruise. Their prices are mid range, and typically cruises are enjoyed by an upper age range, though young professionals and families may enjoy them as well.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Emerald Waterways runs cruises in Europe and Southeast Asia, specifically the Rhine, Main, Danube, Saône, Rhône and Mekong rivers. Journeys range from 8 to 17 days. 

    Why Travel With Them?

    Emerald Waterways promises to provide an affordable, leisurely escape with all inclusive benefits including meals, travel transfers, and onshore experiences. They have multiple deck side viewing and dining areas, friendly staff, and fun onboard entertainment. Their many itineraries aim to provide an immersive experience sailing past stunning architecture, quaint villages and towns, and historical landmarks. 

    About Sunrise Adventure

    Sunrise Adventures specializes in trekking tours in Nepal, but also offer trekking and sightseeing in India, Tibet, and Bhutan.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Nepal is a classic trekking destination and Sunrise Adventures local guides have years of professional experience guiding and walking challenging multi-day treks. They offer assistance not only on the trail, but pre and post travel as well, including visa support and hotel booking. 24 hour customer service is available during your travel - including safety support such as helicopter rescue.

    Who Travels With Them?

    Trekking is not for the faint of heart! Both literally and figuratively. Most of their trips are quite challenging, and you will be hiking in altitude. Most of their tours, if not fully focused on trekking, have an adventure component whether it be bungee jumping or whitewater rafting. These kinds of tours are most suited to young travelers seeking excitement with a dose of culturally enriching activities as well. Groups and individual travelers are welcome.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Primarily they are known for their Nepal treks, which range from the famous Everest variations to lesser known areas. However they also offer a variety of adventure trips in India, Tibet, and Bhutan.

    Why Travel With Them?

    Trips are all conducted by local guides, and they have many years of expertise leading the challenging multi-day treks. They are also an eco conscious tour company for those looking to minimize their carbon footprint while traveling. You can also feel good about helping the local communities as a portion of the profits when you book your trip go toward social services such as helping orphanages and local charities.
