Had a terrific cruise on Viking Hermod, our first river cruise, Lyon to Avignon. Did a 3-day pre-extension in Paris. The hotel was excellent, great location & services; we also did a non-Viking one-day to Normandy on our own through Viator, great way to spend a partly rainy day. Great airport transfer DeGaulle to the hotel, our own personal limo/SUV; easy travel Paris to Lyon on TGV, Viking reps expert assistance all the way. Ship staff were all excellent, Viking is a well-oiled machine, staff often went over & above, anticipated needs proactively. Food was good, maybe not gourmet but met all expectations. Daily excursions all well planned & informative, local guides all excellent. I generally went with the leisurely group but occasionally stepped out of my comfort zone, all good & again, staff & guides always so helpful. Itinerary & all of the local ports & villages terrific. Overall, no complaints with Viking. Checkout very smooth, despite early departure could have used an extra hour at Marseilles airport due to long lines & very limited airport staff.
