Positive -staff are friendly. But this is a waste of money, 75 mins and really you see nothing and they charge €23 for it, that is probably the most shocking part.

Nothing to see other than graffiti and river sides, rude staff and a broken card machine, wouldn’t recommend at all!

Vienna is a lovely city filled with immense palaces, grand buildings and fabulous squares. You'll see none of this from this cruise along the Danube Canal. Instead you can admire the ugly side of the city. If you like concrete, you'll love this! The only redeeming feature is the
