Jamie Durie's 'Space Ship' European cruise

17:30 AEST Sat Oct 5 2013

Jamie Durie, Australia’s international award-winning horticulturalist and landscape designer, filmed some Getaway stories in 2004, and we lured him from his busy schedule to return to film a Scenic Tours Europe Special.

He packed his bags in record time.

He boarded his custom built Scenic Tours’ 'Space-Ship' for a 15 day Jewels of Europe River Cruise, an unforgettable journey from Budapest to Amsterdam, travelling along three rivers and across five countries on the most finely appointed river cruise ship in the world.
