Pre-cruise hotel in Munich (Hilton) was fine. We needed to place a call for A/C fan not working. Tours were good and interesting. Local restaurants were few, we needed to secure rides to get dinner.
Pre-cruise hotel in Salzburg (Sheraton) was nice and close to shopping and restaurants. Tours and tour guides were outstanding. Our Viking representative for these four days was great.
We boarded the river cruise in Passau. Viking handled all transfers and luggage.
