Paris and Normandy Viking Tour

Viking Rinda Cruise Review by nursldy@machabit.com

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2016
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: French Balcony

It was selected by a Travel agency my brother has booked with many times.

We did the pre-trip to Paris then down the Seine to Normandy.

All the side excursions were well planned and informative. Our tour guides were well informed and delightful.

The rooms were just right for what the trip had planned.

The food was excellent and wait staff were superbly trained as well as pleasant to interact with.

The ship was easily navigated by a novice traveler. The areas for visiting and relaxing were inviting.

My husband who is not a traveler could only sing praises for the trip, the ship's accommodations, and the variety of the menu.

I would recommend this trip to all who have a need to see Paris. It was a comprehensive tour of all the must see places in the city. You were able to see many of the sights, but some were only from the bus.

I would certainly take another Viking Tour without hesitation. I do need to say that we arrived right after this years flooding so there were some questions on whether we would be able to do some of the tours by ship, but the Seine went down enough to allow the tour to go on as scheduled.

Cabin Review

French Balcony
Cabin D 336

The cabins was what you would expect on a ship with limited space. The cleaning staff was superior.

City Tour

We enjoyed the tour, but wished we had an opportunity to actually visit some of the places we only looked at.

D-Day Beaches

Very touching tour. Our guide Ann Marie knew so much about what happened on D-Day. She gave dates and names. Unbelievable memory for facts.

Eiffel Tower

We had booked the pre-trip that had us at a hotel only 2 blocks from the Eiffel Tower. We walked over an enjoyed the sight ourselves.

The Louvre

The Tour was large. We were split up into 3 groups. We had a lady that did not walk well. The tour guide attempted to accommodate the woman by having her take an elevate and our group would meet her at the next level up. When we go there the lady was not to be seen. The tour guide was frantic and we spent some of our tour time looking for the woman. We found that she had went and joined another group which we were happy she was not lost but it took away some of our time in the Louvre and was unnerving for the tour guide which reflected on the tour.

Lovely well informed tour guide that knew a great deal about the city and Joan of Arc.
