Overall wonderful experience. Viking took care of details we just enjoyed
"We had great local tour guides in every port and the experiences into the cities and immersion into the culture couldn’t match what we could have done on our own.Favorites were trips to local vineyards and a steep hike down from the top of one of them...."Read More

Poor flight scheduling

The cruise was very good but the flight schedule was terrible. We are looking for a cruise line that books air flights more thoughtfully. Recommend that the flight schedule be defined prior to final payment. Dinning staff was excellent. Chef excellent and a bit amusing as well. Ship was well run, except for an incident in one of the locks. We were provided with details of the issue, ...

There was nothing to complain about. The food was varied and exceptional, reflecting the region. For the unadventurous there was standard American food also. The regular guided tours were fascinating, and so were the extra tours which went into more depth. The service was exceptional; I will probably never be treated quite that way again unless I take another Viking River Cruise. The staff ...

Had never been to France and we were able to add 3 day visits to Paris and Nice on either end of the cruise. Viking still took care of us on these extensions and had set up great tours and experiences like lunch in Canne. The boat and its crew were exceptional and our every need was taken care of. We had great local tour guides in every port and the experiences into the cities and immersion ...

This is probably our fifth or sixth cruise with Viking. Needless to say, we really do like their ships, their staff, pricing and their professionalism. It would take a lot to get us to switch to another river cruise line. We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise in Provence earlier this year. Lots of very interesting sights and information to learn about the history of this part of France. The only ...

The Viking Buri was as exceptional as other river cruises we have taken with Viking. I was amazed at the number and quality of Roman ruins along the river--so much amazing history that we rarely hear about. When one inland trip wasn't available the tour organized an evening walk through one of the most complete medieval towns, almost all in darkness--it was spectacular. Really enjoyed the ...

Wanted to see France, this cruise was a great way to see the river area. I have booked another cruise in a different area of France to see next, so I was a very happy customer. I did not rate the family and fitness areas of the cruise very highly, but the cruise does intend to rate highly in these areas. I got lots of exercise each day walking around different parts of France and to me the ...

Could there be a better way to explore southern France, from the Lyon to Avignon other than a VIking River Cruise? I don't think so. "Explore the world in comfort", says Viking, and it's true! Everything needed for a relaxing cruise holiday is here: soothing, Scandinavian-inspired longship décor, world-class cuisine, impeccable service from friendly, well-trained staff and interesting shore ...

This was our third Viking.. after the Danube at Christmas (fabulous!) and the Rhine Getaway. We recommend Viking to all friends and family, as the experience is as close to perfect as you can get. From the preplanning and attentive calls when we had questions, to the air travel they handled, it all went smoothly. The trip itself was lovely! We were lucky with great weather the entire week. ...

The crew on this ship seemed to go out of their way to make the cruise as enjoyable as possible for all the passengers. There were quite a few unexpected occurrences they had to deal with ( like a train strike the day the pre-cruise people were supposed to come from Paris to Lyon to board the ship). They just hired a bus to bring them and then greeted them with campaign and an apology. Another ...

We selected this cruise solely because of the dates and location. And we would could not have selected a more perfect experience. The crew was magnificent; attentive, friendly, cheerful, kind, and seemed to enjoy their work experience as much as we enjoyed our vacation. Our cabin, a veranda state room, was compact but comfortable and beautifully appointed. The food was lovely, with choices to ...
