We wanted our first river cruise to be on the Danube River. We’d heard wonderful reviews and great things about Viking Cruises from our friends. We enjoyed the variety of countries and cities to explore each day. It has been the best travel dollars we have ever spent. The history and culture of centuries, not decades was immersive. Included activities in each city were enjoyable and informative. Getting on and off the ship was easy and our local guides were always engaging and informative. We met other travelers to share the experiences and make memories with. Our day in Vienna was filled with a spectacular tour of Schonbrunn Palace and a Mozart concert. We walked the streets and enjoyed the lovely sights while window shopping. Budapest holds many surprises, then a bus ride to Szentendre where we enjoyed meeting the local artists and craftsmen. Next stop the ethnographic museum in Skansen with period scenarios and cultural history. The goulash Cooking class and lunch were excellent! The cruise staff were engaging and accessible with answers suggestions for day trips and were so well worth informed about the history and culture of each our stops.

Fantastic crew, beautiful scenery and fascinating daily excursions.
