We were on the same trip as Comedy of Errors, previously reviewed and agree with everything that was said. The coach was appalling and not fit for purpose, there was no leg room or air conditioning, we missed the ferry and the driver got lost, meaning we did not arrive at our overnight hotel until 10.45 pm, after having been...

We enjoyed the Rhine River Cruise so much and it deserves a 5 star rating! The cruise director was excellent and extremely organized. Every day there was an excursion and each one went very smoothly and local tour guides were exceptionally good! We enjoyed the excursions very much. The food was excellent! Wonderful breakfast offering everything imaginable, including an omelet... More

We enjoyed traveling along the Rhine River last Fall, while taking a Viking River Cruise. This River is the busiest working River in Eastern Europe with many barges, and other travel vessels sharing the waterway. There were 11 locks to pass through along our travels from Basil , Switzerland to Amsterdam. Water fills the locks, raising or lowering water levels... More

The romantic rhine with the rhine gorge and its castles is a must see for every travel to Germany. Pass the Loreley rock and indulge the beautiful landscape.

Comedy of errors on our river cruise 6th August 2015 First off we were 5 people on the back seat of a coach travelling from the Midlands to Nuremberg. My husband who is 6.4 in couldn't get his legs in and there was no aisle seat for him to stretch out so he was unable to sit down. He just... More

I first provide a bit of personal context before reviewing because I was a reluctant cruiser and nearly cancelled the trip. There are things in life you are sure about. There are things in life that you are not sure about. Not terribly profound. I was sure that I was not a cruiser. I like the freedom of being out... More

If you planning a Christmas market river cruise, you should not consider any other than Tauck. This, American, cruise line is definitely the best of the best and then better than that. There isn't anything that they don't take care of, right down to change for the bathrooms. Unfortunately in Germany they charge for restrooms, so the Tauck tour directors... More

Picturesque places to visit, the food was good, staff helpful and lovely company. The downside is the traveling to get there, from leaving home we were on the road for 17 hours. Cabins were bigger than expected and there was plenty of room.

Viking Cruise - AWESOME - excellent cruise - much more personal service than on a ocean cruise. Food, excursions, and stateroom were perfect. Staff on board were catered to our every need. Can't say enough about how wonderful they were. We went in December on the Rhine - visiting the Christmas markets should be on everyone's bucket list. My only... More
