APT and Gourmet Traveller launch reader cruises

Kicking off in February 2018, six exclusive tours will take Gourmet Traveller readers far and wide, delivering exceptional service, fine dining and, of course, a first-class travel experience.

Last year we released our inaugural Cruising Special in honour of Australia's growing appetite for exploring the high seas.

This year, we're following up with another truly exciting first: a partnership between APT and Gourmet Traveller that will see us co-host six river tours in 2018.

Celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, APT has undoubtedly changed the way we travel. A family run business, Geoff McGeary turned a suburban bus company into a global travel empire, taking a risk on river cruising in the early 2000s. It paid off. Today APT operates 18 luxury ships on the rivers of Europe and Asia, all with the same motto: exceed expectations. 

The APT and Gourmet Traveller tours will aim to follow suit, showcasing a diverse and exciting array of river cruising destinations at their finest, while also inviting readers to join the Gourmet Traveller team on what will surely be a memorable expedition.
