This was a great tour! I loved that everything was already set up when we got to Prague in terms of train tickets and hotels. The hotel in Prague was our least favorite as they weren't very friendly and accommodating to our request. Everything else was great though!

There are a couple things I would have liked which would have helped as well. We got a general overview of which hotels we were staying at and what time the tour would start the next morning but it would have helped to have more information about the tours picking us up in the morning. We didn't know the companies names giving the tours which created some confusion. It would have bee nice to know for example that a bus company was picking us up in Vienna then taking us to the bus to start the tour. It would have also been nice to know what sights we were going to see to help us plan the rest of our time effectively.

This tour is not for the faint of heart. It is a lot of walking and sightseeing in a short amount of time. I think it you had 7-8 nights it would have been more fun to stay in each city an extra day.

Prague is wonderful though we had rain during our guided tour. Tour guide was busy with 2 languages and I think it was a second best arrangement. Hotel Axa is good, clean and tidy. Staff are very helpful. Breakfast is wonderful.

Viator in Prague through the local tour operator was not good as it was mainly a bus tour going over the same blocks over and over and driving by places quickly. There were no photo stops which is one of the reasons that I travel so much - for the photography. The hotels in Prague, Vienna and Budapest were adequate and the central location was good. The city tour guide in Vienna was better. The train rides were all very good and easy to access. The city tour in Budapest was the worst. To begin with it was supposed to start at 10:40 am and be a 3.5 hour tour which is poor planning since it was over the lunch hour. The taxi picked us up at our hotel and dropped us at another hotel to be picked up for the tour by bus. The bus never came. Anna substituted for the guide and tried to accommodate us, but she did not have a bus with loud speaker to hear her explanation. We had only one photo stop which did not include the Palace district. On being dropped at the Parliament bldg, hungry and frustrated we complained to Anna who arranged a private tour for us back to the Palace district etc. She was accommodating, but the morning was extremely frustrating. VIATOR dropped the ball with this one.
