It was fantastic weather, so you could sit on the sun deck. In addition a piece of Sacher Torte, coffee and water, perfect. The service was extremely friendly. The nature of the audio accompaniment was appealing and some things that could not have been explored by land routes were fantastic to see here.

Great value for €10.80, The 50min tour was good, went very quick and ypu only get to see the lower half of the river..the service and food was very good indeed and average price as you would expect to pay. Nice to sit back and relax so i would highly recommend.

A very pleasant and insightful cruise, lots of scenery and the comfortable voyage on both legs. On board staff is friendly and professional, a good choice of snacks and beverages if u want something to eat or drink. Would recommend, a great way to spend an hour or 2 one morning or afternoon!
