My wife and I are senior citizens in our upper 70s, but reasonably mobile. This tour suited us well, requiring a modest amount walking and featuring highly informative guided visits. All was excellent. Meals, service, itinerary ... no complaints. We were met at all junctures by competent staff that handled greeting, transfers, etc. in first-class fashion. Our river cruise was complicated by high water levels, but although this caused us to miss a day's itinerary the time was well compensated. The kitchen staff catered sensitively to my wife's food allergies. She can't tolerate wine, but the rest of us in our group made up for it! (The wine was of notably high quality.) Meals were excellent, although as a result I gained rather more weight than I expected! Our cabin was just the right size for us and well organized. We particularly appreciated seeing so many cities without having to move our luggage, and it was a pleasure to watch the world go by from our stateroom balcony. It was also a pleasure to have the personalized service that is feasible with a small passenger list. Read Less

The lure of the Danube and the cities in that part of Europe called us. We arrived in Budapest a few days before the cruise and ended our trip by flying to Amsterdam for a few days before returning home. Embarkation and disembarkation were handled so nicely by Viking. We barely had to think! Budapest and Amsterdam were both awesome! We were so glad we had added these extended stays. We traveled with another couple, good friends. This couple had taken a previous River cruise with a different cruise line and they commented that perhaps Viking was a tad nicer and a tad more economical. All four of us loved having beer and wine included at lunch and dinner though we did feel that this feature should also be included during the cocktail hours. We obviously were so happy with Viking that we booked a Rhine River cruise for this coming October! Can't wait! Read Less
