We took the boat from Bratislava to Vienna for the day. I agree with other reviewers that the online booking system isn't great at all. I tried to book online but failed. I then asked our hotel concierge about the trip and was advised to go down to the booking office at the pier to get tickets. This trip does... More

Rude staff, nothing to see, take a train , seriously over priced. The captain is arrogant and rude. Sitting in the caprain's lodge is a waste of money because you can't get a coffee there. The only positive thing was the waitress who was very nice. Pass on this experience, really, it's not worth it.

I'd give it 3.5 if I could. A lot was wrong with it... but it had one major positive, the Danube itself. I was debating for a while about bus, train or boat to do a trip to Bratislava. Well I tried train and boat and would 100% recommend going by water. Book in advance if possible and pay the... More

Although is slower than travelling by car, in 90 minutes you arrive to Wien near the city centre. In your way, you can admire Devin's castle and the small fishermen houses near the danube's banks. At 10:00 am the trip is cheapest. The price changes according the schedule you choose

We enjoyed our trip to Bratislava . The boat was comfortable and it was a good way to travel. Be aware that the €30 price is only one way. Having given that advice I must say that the trip is worth the cost. They offer local tours whilst you are on the boat. The 1 hour castle tour is good... More

When one thinks about a boat trip through the Danube between Vienna and Bratislava I think something much nicer comes to mind than what we experienced. Its not a bad trip, but it is expensive and the boat is completely closed and quite big. So it is not much more than seeing the river through the window (if you get... More

Dear Mr. Schott, thank you for your review. However we would like to make sure that you took the boatrip with the Twin City Liner. Since this boat has a back board and an upper deck that are available for all the travellers during the whole journey, except the 15 minutes in the Danube canal. Can you please tell us... More

It's a lovely part of the world to cruise, from Vienna to Bratislava. It's great to see all the greenery and the little towns and ruins. Especially great at sunset. But be careful who you go with! Twin City were a bit of a nightmare. We turned up for a sailing an hour ahead to see if there were tickets.... More

Dear Mr. Swin, thank you for your review. We are sorry about your rather regrettable experience. The crew is, however, not able to provide proper information about capacity since they have no access to the booking system. Hence, we believe that their intentions were good. Passengers are never instructed to sit down during the cruise - everyone is allowed to... More

We booked this trip over the phone before we went to Vienna to ensure we had a seat on the boat.The company are extremely well organised and everything ran smoothly. We collected our tickets on arrival in Vienna so that we knew exactly where we were sailing from . The catamaran went speedily to Bratislava which is a beautiful little... More

Wanted to visit Bratislava from Vienna and rather than take train here was something different! An enjoyable way to travel. On way out were on deck and way back inside. Was comfortable, clean and tidy. Took you right to the centre of Bratislava, about 5 mins walk from major attractions.

Pleasant and convenient way to get to Bratislava from Vienna. Just over an hour on the beautiful river. You can simply admire the scenery from the cabin or up on deck and feel the speed. Both ports are located in urban centers so that you can immediately begin to explore the sights
