Was strange that we were skirted...
, Feb 2018
Was strange that we were skirted over to only one section upstairs while everyone else had open seating. Food wasn't so great and wasn't seeing anything amazing on the river cruise. I would skip this.
Fabulous trip. Really enjoyed the sightseeing, the food and staff. Lovely holiday atmosphere with local musicians. My only complaint was that although we paid for return transfers from our hotel to the boat we had to make our own way back to the hotel. C'est la vie. That wouldn't stop us going again. I use a walking stick as necessary but I had no problem with the boat which was great as I was there to celebrate a special birthday.
This was the worst excursion that I have ever had using Viator tours. From being picked up 1/2 hour earlier than scheduled to waiting a 1/2 hour at another stop for a customer who never showed to waiting at the boat pier for van while they got tickets for us to board. This was the good part! The boat was a dive and the service terrible. The waiters didn't tell us to help ourselves to food and everyone on the first floor was already eating. The waiters spent more time outside smoking then tending to patrons. The WORST part was the view from the boat - most of the trip was a tributary of the Danube for most of the trip viewing Graffiti painted walls. Then too much time in an ugly lock both ways. Very little time spent on the Danube river. And the music was awful and loud. This was a wasted evening in Vienna and there were so many better things that we could have been doing. I chose it based on ratings on Viator which leads me to believe that only good postings get posted on Viator. CHOOSE SOMETHING ELSE! AND BE WARY OF VIATOR RATINGS!
This sounded like a scenic tour of the sights of Vienna at night when they are beautiful...what it was instead was a cruise down the industrial and less scenic portions of the river with managing the locks taking up a good amount of time on the water and the food was mediocre at best.
The hotel pick up was efficient and right on time.
The Austrian food buffet was tasty. The Austrian music was nice but was really more enjoyable for Austrian people who understood the lyrics. The cruise seemed a bit too long especially in mid Sept where it was dark for most of it.
Mixup in pick-up confirmation, driver thought there was less of us. So they took us in 3 different turns. Viator customers are put in the back of the ship, not the best views. Seats cant be booked beforehand, luckily we all could sit together since the cruise wasnt full. Waiter was nice and food ok
The scenery was minimal
We spent most of the time in the canal with no scenery at all
The food was average at best
Hardly any choices for vegetarians
One waitress on our level which was bad for good service
The music was nice and the best part
Would not recommend
The music was good
