We always have wanted to experience Asia. We chose Viking to do that knowing that they are the best in handling all details of your trips. This was no exception. While we were only on the ship for 8 days the rest of the time we toured Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Wuhan plus Guilin and several others. Every meal ( except for 1) was well thought out and delicious.Our meals on board were some of the best we've ever had with Viking. Friends that traveled with us had special dietary needs (vegetarian and gluten free) and the staff and chef could not have been more helpful. All of the sights visited from the Great Wall to the Viking School were well planned. They took us to the busiest tourist spots at just the right time in order to avoid the lines while keeping the weather in mind. The hotels we stayed in were all 4+ star accommodations. We had several in country flights and Viking was with us every step of the way. There was not one moment of worry due to language or custom differences. There is so much more I could share with you but the quickest way to describe our experience is Viking takes care of it all!
