We took the twin city line to Bratislava for €35 each oeway although we only booked it the morning of departure so our seats weren't together. Once on the Danube you can get up and walk about. 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...

If you like boats, trains, rivers, scenic trips - this covers all the bases. Did the return ride one Sunday recently while staying in Vienna. Terminal is right by the metro, and the fast cat delivers you to the centre of Bratislava - whizzing along the river in Vienna and then joining the Danube proper. Seats can be booked inside,...

Crew was very nice. Free for us with Vienna Pass. We expected it to do a circle cruise s shown on the map, but it just went up the river one way then turned around and came back. An Austrian recording pointing out site for the first 5 minutes in the city, then nothing for the rest of the 90... More

We booked our trip from Vienna to Bratislava by bus and return by catamaran conveniently at our hotel and collected from the hotel by mini-bus which took us to the main coach to Bratislava. We were met by our tour guide Sonja who was very pleasant and knowledgeable of her city of which she was obviously proud. After our tour... More
