    It was really a nice experience to ride that cruise. Commentary was knowledgeable and restaurant and restaurant staff was very nice.

  • 13-Dec-2018

    This was a fairly dull trip with limited commentary. The tables and chairs and the coffee was nice and it was quite relaxing travelling down the river.

    Tour was nice, we had a great view of the city. It was a bit shorter than I expected but it was very nice and informative.

    Very enjoyable tour. Wish it would of gone onto the actual Danube River itself. Glad it was bilingual...

    The tour was great - wish for a longer one. One VERY IMPORTANT THING - after the purchase of the tour I received the indications that the only thing to do is print the voucher. We arrived half an hour earlier and at the boarding they told us to go quickly upstairs and exchange the voucher on real tickets ... So this is an important information that must be on your voucher.

    After a full day of walking the city this was a nice relaxing way to see a bit more.
    Full food and drink available on board
    Sit back soak up the sunshine on the back of the boat and have a beer while viewing the funky little Canal and some great architecture

    Complete waste of time. Commentary was sparse and difficult to understand, didn and #39;t see much from the boat. Don and #39;t bother with this trip unless you want to ride up the river on a boat- it is not a tour.

    It was a great tour, very cold but there were blankets and hot beverages available at the bar to warm up with. We took the half-round trip.

    very poor

    Generally I don't bother with reviews but I wanted to warn off people, this is a total tourist trap. If you can't manage to sit outside which we couldn't because there was a very few seats which was suitable for that it is completely pointless. The route the boat takes is very industrialised, it is not pretty at all. The lower half of the boat smells heavily of fried oils and if you choose not to eat, it could be very nauseous. We also had a raucous group of drunk teenagers who did not stop screaming and singing whole the way, which was a painful 75 minutes, let me tell you. To resume, do not buy this. Complete waste of time, there are better ways to enjoy both Vienna and Danube.
