“Disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

Avoid this cruise, it is terrible. We sat on the top deck, no air conditioning and we suffered throughout the journey due to the heat, you could not open some of the windowsand the only windows that would open were very small. As soon as you set sail you are approached by a waiter to serve food and drink, we purchased a bottle of wine which cost £20, there were no cheaper options. We travelled along a canal for most of the journey, very boring scenery, no highlights and we waited 45 minutes to get through a loch. A complete waste of time and money, never to be repeated.

“Not worth the effort nor the high cost!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

This was the worst attraction that we took part in when we were in Vienna in October 2012.
The boat was crowded, filled with drunks, no service and really unable to see anything but graffiti along the entire way.
It was too hot, very few windows could be opened, the commentary was hard to hear and the noise of the boat was painful.
We would not recommend this "attraction" to anyone.....it is truly a waste of time and money!
If there was a lower rating than TERRIBLE, it would be my choice.

“Wow.. finally deep breath!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

We took the Route C. It is short route because we didn't have enough time to do the long ones. Anyhow, we do really enjoyed the nice buildings and great nature and nice windy weather. It gave us a great time to breath deeply and refreshing our life after hard working through this year!

“Danube boat trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

An interesting trip on the River Danube & Danube Canal, a good way to see some of Vienna's sights while relaxing. Good value for money.

“Heurigenfahrt Dinner Cruise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

Great night had by all. As a family with teenage sons, we all enjoyed the experience. My sons loved the experience of transversing canal locks and the cool evening breeze on the top deck. The musicians Erich Zip and Michael Perfler were great with a wide repetoir of numbers.

Our lack of German was not an issue and the buffet was well presented and full of flavour. Staff had a great sense of humour and were professional. Would recommend as a different way to dine whilst in Vienna.
