For my 89's mother's birthday, I had bought 2 tickets from Bratislava to Vienna but they did not allow us on their boat because I did not have an identity paper. They sent us back, at our expanses, by bus. (You don't need any identity papers by train or bus.. as logical since we are in Europe) On their long... More

This excursion was booked by our hotel through Vienna Sightseeing. We wanted to leave Bratislava on the 2:30 boat, rather than the 4:00 boat which was booked in advance. Despite wide availability on the earlier boat, the staff refused to help us unless we paid again the full fare. That and the paucity of information from Vienna Sightseeing on what... More

The travel by boat from Viena to Bratislava is very interesting and with a beautiful view but be careful. The staff are not helpful. The boy sold us a ticket ($35,00 each) of a boat that leave immediately and we lost it, and when we went to trade the ticket he sold us a more expensive one ($40,00 each) and... More

There is a small bar onboard but not sure on prices. Nice way to travel but we took the train back 20 minutes... More

We stayed in Vienna for our break and decided to take the trip to Bratislava. The booking clerk at the Twin Cities office was decidedly unhelpful, no matter when we wanted to go it was booked out, when we finally managed to get a trip we couldn't come back at the time we wanted despite it still being advertised as...

Staff on the boat not very friendly! Morning trip on the Danube was great, but a full day in Bratislava was too long. There is lots of walking!

The Twin Cities Liner offers high speed boat connection between Vienna and Bratislava. Only somewhat slower than by car, it offers a unique experience of a really fast cruise on the river. Plan at least half a day for the trip. Several departures per day. Maybe combined with an overnight stay.

Totally unacceptable customer service. Would give 0 stars if possible. Created a lot of problems for our group of 50 people

Took the boat from Bratislava to Vienna last week. My hotel receptionist booked the tickets and we arrived at the terminal and paid the balance. Very busy but boarding was no problem. As it was such a good day we sat outside for the entire trip. Honestly don't have a negative thing to say about the trip. Staff were friendly... More

The tour guide was very informative, providing current and historical information about Bratislava. Never knew that so many auto companies were located in the country. Inner city is quite small and the short day trip was sufficient. Many reviewers praised the catamaran return to Vienna and everyone on our bus returned by boat but if you have already taken the...
