  3. Viking Heimdal
We were intrigued by the combination ability on this particular cruise. We wanted to see a lot of France and so we started on the Heimdal on the Rhone but after that week was over we took the high speed train to Paris and joined the Viking Rinda for a second week, this time on the Seine. Both were excellent. Our cabin was lovely and comfortable and even the weather co-operated (both cruises) and we were able to sit out on our verandah and relax when we didn't feel like going up to the upper deck and join the masses. The food, service, crew, etc are top notch. And so many "extras" are included so we didn't feel nickel & dimed to death like on all the ocean cruises (big ships) we've been on. Loved it! This was our 4th & 5th cruise with Viking River Cruises and it won't be our last. We've also been on one of Viking's ocean cruises and won't go back to the "big" ships after such a lovely inclusive and intimate trip.

The entire experience was wonderful!

  • Arles
    We did the Arles Walking tour with a very funny but knowledgeable guide so it was a great time. Also free time brought on some tasty foods.

  • City Tour
    It was a lovely place with 2 rivers running parallel to each other. Downtown is between the rivers and had a lot of wonderful old arcetecture , lots of important old churches with lots of history. Also saw lots of murals and a museum.
    In the afternoon we toured the timeless town of Perouges. Wonderful, loved the clock/sundial.
