I chose this cruise because I had been to Lyon once before but only for a day and I wanted to see more and I am a fan of French food, history, culture, wine and pretty much everything else. The stops were all wonderful and the tour guides quite good. The staff on the ship was observent and attentive, all spoke English (since my French is pretty creative that was helpful!). The wine and truffle ...

Beautiful part of France. A wine tasting excursion In Beaujolais country. The Nouveau Beaujolais uncorked when we were visiting. Year of Van Gogh and there was a wonderful day long excursion immersing in Van Gogh’s days in Arles. A variety of affordable excursions were offered at each stop, including one included excursion at no additional cost. The three included excursions I took ...

We were invited by another family member to accompany them. We travel a lot but had never been on a river cruise or any kind of cruise before. It was wonderful! The Viking staff was extremely organized and all travel to and from airports and then each destination was executed perfectly and in an extremely timely manner! All the buses for transport were luxury. I have some food allergies and ...

Our cruise on the Delling down the Rhone from Lyon to Avignon had many excellent features (like service, food, and accommodations on the ship) but also some disappointments. There were about 185 passengers; any more would have been too many for us. The first thing to be said about it is that there was very little cruising and a lot of walking and bus-riding. In retrospect, we suppose this was ...

We chose this Viking cruise because we love France. We had never taken a river cruise before, only ocean cruises, but we thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. Our friends had taken several riverboat cruises with Viking and suggested we go. We liked the smaller boat and the fact that there were less than 200 guests, making it more intimate. The service on the Viking Delling was superb, the free ...

We chose this cruise because we have always wanted to explore that portion of France. It was our first river cruise and Viking cruise. For our cousins, it was their first cruise of any sort. The trip was beyond our expectations. The food on the ship was excellent. The service was impeccable. Our matre'd was also a trained somalier so we used his expertise in wines of the region to explore ...

Staff was great. Services are excellent. Foods are excellent. Entertainment and ports excursions are adequate. We love the pre-extension in Nice with excellent excursions. The Viking staff there also were very helpful. Our flight came late and Viking host was there to greet us and helped to process the hotel room and the following day excursions. The whole trip would be great if our cabin were not ...

We spent a couple of days in Paris before the cruise to get ourselves acclimated to the time zone. To get to Lyon, we took the high speed train, which unfortunately was not high speed . There seemed to be some mechanical problem, but there was no communication as to why we were stopped for quite a bit of time, and it was quite hot in the train as there was no ventilation. When we finally got to ...

Avignon has been on my bucket list since high school. Everything about this lived up to our expectations and in fact surpassed them. When I called to make the reservations, Damian Tulloch spent and hour and a half on the phone with me to make sure that everything I was looking for was taken care of. The staff on the cruise was top notch, especially the Program Manager, Oliver. He was truly ...

Having resisted river cruising for many years, we finally capitulated (ran out of excuses for not taking one) and booked a Provence cruise on the Viking Delling. The booking and upfront experience was good. The website was easy to navigate and the cruise materials arrived in plenty of time with luggage tags, cruise book and other information. Good first impression. Our package included free ...
