Fly to Vienna where you will be met and transferred to your hotel the InterContinental (or similar) for two nights. The rest of the day is yours to start exploring this elegant city.
Included today: Guided city tour. Once the centre of the mighty Habsburg Empire, Austria’s magical capital on the blue Danube is a showcase of gilded architecture. This is home to the lavish Hofburg Imperial Palace complex with its Vienna Boys' Choir and dazzling Lipizzaner stallions; the neo-renaissance Vienna Opera House; and awe-inspiring St. Stephen’s Cathedral, plus countless other sights your local guide will show you during your included city sightseeing. In your free time, perhaps visit one of the many magnificent museums or browse through the Naschmarkt, Vienna’s main outdoor produce market for over 80 years. An optional concert is available during your stay.
Time to explore on your own today. Be sure to enjoy a piece of decadent Sachertorte or Apfelstrudel in one of the classic Viennese coffee houses; historic institutions that helped shape Viennese culture. Perhaps you’d like to take an optional excursion to Schönbrunn Palace or to the Vienna Woods. This afternoon, transfer to your river cruise ship and meet your crew at a welcome reception.

"Very enjoyable holiday."
"The staff were all very friendly and helpful, which is great but we were told..."
Well organised operation
Overall good, disappointing hotel location in Budapest
"Great holiday spoilt by poor customer services by the hotel. "
The service as a whole was excellent. The cruise director Anjun (sorry for the selling) was outstanding. The crew were amazing. One young lady that stood out was called Kami. She always seemed tone there. Always ready with another drink and really engaging with the passengers. She has a permanent smile which is genuine and a real sense of fun. there were several older ladies on the cruise who were unaccompanied and she went out of her way to involve them, getting them up to dance and have some fun. Really impressed with her.
The ONLY negative I have is the arrival at Budapest... We were asked to have our bags outside our staterooms at 07:30 and did not see them again until we could check into the hotel. The hotel was not ready for us until 15:30hrs and we 'wasted' half a day waiting for rooms. Two elderly ladies asked if there was somewhere they could rest and were told but the hole they had a lounge they course use for 69 euros each. This was a very poor display of customer services by the Hilton hotel having kept us waiting for several hours.
Expensive holiday but worth it
