B-to-A March 23-30 on Tialfi. With no preconceived ideas what to expect, I was blown away by our Viking experience. We did the 3-day pre-cruise in Lake Como. One memorable detail of many that stood out was quality of local tour guides on each excursion: very knowledgeable on history from ancient times to present, culture and customs, entertaining and seemingly able to field any question the ...

This was my first cruise of any type and my first visit to Europe. I don't believe there could have been a better way to experience either of these firsts. Viking is terrific! We arrived two days early in Amsterdam and had a great time touring the city. We were somewhat tired when we boarded our Viking ship but the entire crew made those first couple of hours so relaxing and comfortable. And it ...

I chose this cruise because my dear friends louise and don cox recommended it. they have been on 7 previous viking river cruises. The food was fabulous, the side trips were amazing with wonderful knowledgable guides. The busses, canal boat, and train used on the side excursions were top of the line. The waiters, expecially alexandra and rudy, were super efficient and friendly; the ...

This was a dream cruise for me and a high school friend. The time of year was perfect because it became early spring and none of the towns were crowded. Saw UNESCO castles and churches and Roman ruins -- and got to know some very sweet small towns where we docked by just walking around. Everything on the ship was ideal, from room to views to tours to food. It was fun to try the regional dishes ...

From the moment we arrived at the airport in Amsterdam the service provided by the Viking “Tialfi” staff was more than we could have hoped for. The program director did a marvelous job of coordinating our excursions so that we made the most of our time in the historic and charming ports of call along the Rhine. The tour guides were very knowledgable and provided a good mix of history and culture ...

We had curtailed travel for the past 3-4 years because of work, COVID, and parental caregiver responsibilities. During this time we achieved an age milestone, retired, and celebrated 40+ years of marriage. We wanted a special way to celebrate all of this so we chose Viking. This was our first Viking cruise and our first trip to this part of Europe. We liked the idea of the river cruise so that we ...

The restaurant meals aboard the ship were perfect! We loved having so many choices for starters, salads, entrees, and desserts -- both daily offerings and regional specialties. The service was equally perfect -- all of the staff were so attentive to us and we could not have asked for better! They learned our names and were eager to serve us. After a couple of days, they often knew what ...

We had heard many good things about traveling with Viking and had heard about the Christmas market cruise . Originally we were going to go down the Danube but the travel agent suggested to go down the Rhine . We were not disappointed ,other than the weather didn’t cooperate. The step on guides were excellent. The tour director “ Jen “ was excellent and kept us informed of any changes that were ...

The experience was horrible from day 1. Arrived day early and stayed in hotel. Departed next morning for the dock, no ship. Went to 2d dock, no ship. At 3rd, there was a Viking ship (not ours) who advised us that we had to go to another hotel to be bussed to our second port. So, missed time in Basel. No text, no email, no communication. Balance of trip was just as bad. Poor communication by ...

We have sailed with Viking before, however this was our first riverboat cruise. Viking didn’t disappoint! This was a very enjoyable experience ! After a river boat accident changed our cruise and deleted Koblenz from our itinerary, the transfer to a different Viking boat went off without a hitch. The tour of castles and bus trip were very interesting and offered another perspective of ...
