If you are looking for a boat trip on the Danube with scenic views AVOID this trip. The boat is good, the staff are pleasant, the food was mediocre and the views - which is the main reason for taking the trip- are deplorable unless...More

Nothing to see worth mentioning. Have the owners ever been on another city cruise to appreciate how bad this is? Feel like I’ve been robbed - would like my money back.

Without doubt the worst and most uninspiring boat trip I have done in 40 years! Other than graffiti nothing else to see !!!

No it a not what we were expecting. Automatic commentary was repeating same things again and again, not a thing to do in beautiful Vienna

I enjoyed the cruise and seeing a different side of Vienna, however note it was essentially free for ViennaPASS holders, if we had to pay i dont think it would have been worth it for this particular route. Nevertheless I am happy I went

Boring. The lady that sold us the tickets wasn't too friendly or welcoming. Hardly saw any of the actual Danube as we spent most of the cruise in a lock. Expensive compared to many other things we did in the city. Wish I had read...More

We took the evening cruise and loved it. Vienna by night was very interesting, and the food was good.

We stayed 3 days in Vienna. Wanted to see as much as we could handle in a big city and 30 °C heat. Coming back from Shonbrunn Palace visit, we noticed this river cruise when exiting metro station. Thinking, that would be something great to...More

The scheduled 16:00 C Tour never showed up. 21/09/18. We waited 30 minutes past the departure time, no boat. Thank goodness we had not purchased the tickets on line ahead of time, cannot imagine trying to get that money back. Pick a more reliable company...More

Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral)

Take the metro-line U3 (orange line) which is very close to Kirchengasse and at Stephansplatz you change to U1 (red line) which stops at the VIC (Kaisermühlen / VIC). This is in my view the most effective way.
