A great little trip, from capital to capital, nice way to do it, cheap and easy. You can get the bus back if you want at the crazy price of 7 Euros through this company too. Not the greatest part of the Danube but nice enough, and more fun that the usual ways of travelling. Basic refreshments on board, but... More

I took the bus from Vienna to Bratislava and thought taking the boat back might be a nice change. Unfortunately the weather was bad and given the number of people on the boat the windows were steamed up so you couldn't see a thing out of them, lucky for me there wasn't that much to see anyway, just a green...

We'd had our heart set on travelling from Vienna to Bratislava via The Danube. The weather was lovely prior to departure but took a turn. It didn't detract from a great river cruise. 35€ person (Sunday), Takes 1 h 15. I would have liked notification of crossing the border but it was a commentary free trip.

We used the Twin City Liner to travel to Vienna for the next leg of our holiday. We knew that the cost of the boat was more than alternative methods but we loved the idea of moving on from Bratislava to Vienna by boat down the Danube and also the boat mooring at Schwedenplatz in central Vienna is a positive...

We used the Twin City Liner to take us from Bratislava to Vienna as a change from the trains. I booked the morning trip online before we left the UK as the lunchtime one was already booked up ten days in advance. The website has an English translation but I could only get the booking form to appear in German,... More

When visiting Vienna, you might reserve a day to visit Bratislava. The TCL is an excellent way to do this. It is not cheap though - you can get in B'lava for less money. However, the boat is very comfortable: nice seats, no noise or smell inside. You go from city centre to city centre. We payed 5 EUR extra... More

We wanted to take a boat trip on the Danube while there and so we opted to take a day trip to Bratislava. This was really great and highly recommended. The boat service runs at hourly intervals and it is a short by pleasant ride. Bratislava is an excellent day trip! We took a commercial shuttle up to the castle... More

We purchased our tickets from the city tourist info centre & were told by the woman were to get the boat. The information she gave was totally incorrect and we were at the wrong spot to pick up our boat. However we asked a young guy who appeared to be going into work who told us we were in the... More
