A friend asked if a few friends wanted to join she and her husband on this trip a year ahead of travel time. Being stuck inside with covid we said yes. Every detail was handled by Viking as time led up to the trip. Once on board every detail was thought about and we had a fantastic time. We were not sure if we would like river cruising, but loved every minute. The service was impeccable , the cabins and ship amenities were classy, the food delicious, personalities of staff were delightful, tours were full of great information.
We hope to go on another Viking trip at some point. The actual sailing time on this trip is much less that I expected given the nature of the river, tides and location of stops. Our sailing time was at most 3-4 hours on only 5 of the days. The other days we were docked in Bordeaux. LBTW Bordeaux was a wonderful surprise to us. It offers so much to do, learn and experience. It debts my highest rating. Thank you!
