We had a nonstop flight into Lisbon, were met at the airport by a Viking representative, and taken to the Hotel Tivoli centrally located in LIsbon. Everything went very smooth, as we have come to expect from Viking. We have visited Lisbon ... Read more

I clocked at least 9-10 hours more on a bus than I should have been. Viking should have given us a chance to cancel and/or rebook, as they knew well in advance that there had been no rain and the Danube was too low to travel on. Original ... Read more

I had a difficult time finding reviews, and after I got there realized that the boat itself was called Tonle Pandaw, so if you're having difficulty that may be the reason. The weather is hot and humid. Right now they have a drought going ... Read more

I thoroughly enjoyed the Grand European River Cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam from August 20-September 4, 2015. It was very well-paced, the days were well planned without being crammed, and there were a few days on which we didn't have ... Read more

1. Summary: After reading & watching the Viking advertisements and paying top dollar, we were disappointed; we paid for gold, but the Vikings delivered only bronze. We did see a lot of Paris and we did see a lot of other parts of ... Read more
