From humble beginnings in Melbourne, Scenic Tours founder Glen Moroney started out organising holidays for seniors along Victoria's Great Ocean Road. While Warrnambool was a fitting launching pad, things have certainly changed since those early days in the 1980s. After becoming Australia's largest coach touring operator, Scenic Tours have worked tirelessly to earn a strong reputation as one of the most spacious and comfortable river cruise fleets in Europe.

Following the launch of their exclusive Scenic "Space-Ships" in 2008, Scenic Tours have been taking Europe's waterways by storm, inviting guests on a once-in-a-lifetime luxury voyage through history and natural beauty. With more than 25 years experience in hosting incredible holidays, Scenic Tours has developed their reputation as a first-class cruise provider both at home and abroad, still holding strong to their proud Aussie roots.
