We chose this tour because we could travel through Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Hungary and Czech Republic. Viking Gefjon is a beautiful ship with an outstanding, attentive crew. Our cabin was always fresh and clean every day, dining was delightful with many delicious choices as well as meeting friendly travelers, entertainment was fun and engaging, and our ship director Terry was over the top ...

Having never been in Europe before or on a river cruise, my wife and I were interested in experiencing a river cruise to see if we would like others in the future. From the Viking folks that met us at the airport and accompanied us to our buses to them taking us back there at the end of the journey, it was a marvelous experience. The ship was beautiful and a perfect size - our cabin was well ...

Found our 14 Night Grand European Tour for the time of year and price that suited us. I would take another river cruise in a heart beat. Little disappointed when the walking track was closed for days on end so I just had to find another way to get my 12,000 steps in per day. The staff on the Gefjon were awesome, loads of fun, it was just great to spend 14 days with everyone. The shore ...

I loved everything about this cruise (except the weather which was cold and rainy). Our cruise went from Budapest Hungary to Amsterdam. Castles, vineyards, beautiful scenery, churches, shopping, history, demonstrations-so much to see and do. Our cruise director/stand up comedian/singer was positively amazing and multi-talented. He coordinated all the activities and shore excursions so ...

We signed up for this cruise because it coincided with peak tulip time in the Netherlands. Despite the crowds Viking was able to provide access to sites that generally avoided the crowds and gave us a good insight into the people and culture of Holland. Although a bit nippy at times the weather was excellent. The tours were generally extremely well done - although in Amsterdam museums ...

Never been to Europe and never been on a river cruise. Been on several ocean cruises and really liked the “smallness” and tranquility offered by the river cruise. Selected this river cruise because of its itinerary. We were more than pleased with the quality our rooms and quality/variety of our meals. Because there were less than 200 people on board, we got to several people over our two weeks ...

We wanted to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary with a trip that was big and exotic! We travelled to Hawaii for our 35th anniversary and needed something bigger and better. We had been to Europe previously twice before but not since 1980 and then 1989. We loved Europe!! Then we saw an advertisement on our local TV station. GRAND EUROPEAN CRUSIE ON VIKING! We contacted the travel agent ...

On our first Viking Cruise we had Viking make all our flight arrangements and this worked with out flaw, perfect, easy, zero problems. Yes I did check to see if I could get better connections, and cheaper fares on my own, I could not. Using Viking Air is the way to go. As a yacht captain, I can see well past any ship board facade, and it is clear to me Viking is the clear stand out in European ...

We totally enjoyed our experience from the beginning to end. Thanks in large part to the crew and our amazing Cruise Director Wez. He was funny, well organized, creative, and attentive. Amazed someone so young handles the older cruisers with such ease. The Captain and his entire crew were gracious, warm, and friendly. They were obviously good at what they do. It was apparent that they ...
