Highlights of a Viking River Cruise
Traveling by river, beyond the reach of roadways, you will discover the true nature of fascinating lands and the people who call them home. You will travel with ease, unpacking just once and enjoying the ever-changing scenery along the banks as you are gently carried on board an elegant, intimate ship to your next destination. Here is just a small sample of where a Viking river cruise will take you:
Vienna’s elegant boulevards and Hapsburg treasures
Budapest’s historic Castle District
The lush vineyards of France
Storybook villages and hilltop castles of Germany
The charming windmills of The Netherlands
Glittering palaces of St. Petersburg, Russia
Germany’s spectacular Saxon Switzerland region
Portugal’s rolling vineyards of the Douro Valley
Ancient temples along Egypt’s timeless Nile River
China’s breathtaking Three Gorges of the Yangtze
Cambodia’s sprawling Angkor Wat complex
Vietnam’s lush and fertile Mekong Delta
We had seen hundreds of the pictures of huge tracts of towering office and apartment buildings in China but until you stand among them you can not appreciate the immensity of it all or the sense of personal/individual insignificance when you are standing in a crowd of 100,000 people straining and pushing to move ahead in some semblance of orderly fashion (e.g. Mao’s Mausoleum, Tiananmen Square, The Forbidden City) Overwhelming is the most appropriate adjective to describe our sense of it all.
Shanghai, Xian and Beijing are beyond description. The Chinese infrastructure…highways, trains and beautiful light displays and landscaping make US cities pale by comparison.
And so many people! 22 to 38 million in the cities we visited.
It was so interesting and educational...Our Viking guide was phenomenal in getting us up early to get to the sites, Terra Cotta warriors, Great Wall and sites in Beijing. Viking did a wonderful job with guides, hotels and transportation.
I could go on but I hope you get the idea. It is an experience!
We would love to find a British Isles/Scotland cruise for next April or May. Keep us in mind, please."

We had a great trip with both parts of it.
The Viking Cruise was wonderful with exceptional service. The ship was spotless, very good food and drink and a great crew.
The Band of Brothers tour was outstanding. Very full days seeing the sights of the landings and battles. The museums were terrific. Highly recommend it to your future clients .
Thanks for checking in and will definitely keep you in mind for a future trip.

It was a great trip. Viking took good care of us and everything went smoothly. The post-extensions were great and The New York Palace in Budapest was amazing. We loved Prague and Budapest two beautiful cities. The cruise ship was lovely and I am so glad that we had a suite!
All in all it was a delightful experience and I thank you for all the hard work that you put into it.
Have a blessed day, and i look forward to our next trip."

We returned back to D/FW last Thursday afternoon after a very enjoyable trip.
The hotels in both Prague and Budapest were very nice and the suite accommodations on the Viking ship were roomy and comfortable.
The cruise itself was well organized and I would recommend anyone to travel with Viking. The food was good at all times and the Silver Package made the drinking much better that it would have been otherwise so thank you for that.
Margie and I very much appreciate all of your help in making this happen and I am sure that Claire and Al had a great time as well.
I hope that we may be able to work together again in the future.
All the best,"
