Riaan "Our Blue Danube tour with Avalon was an experience of a lifetime. Although water levels were low and this required some tweaking to the itinerary, they managed it very well without detracting from the experience. Accommodation on the Avalon ship was of a very high standard, as was the catering. All staff went the extra mile to make our stay a very memorable one. Hotels we stayed in in Budapest and..."

    We were looked after very well. It was unfortunate, we had mechanical problem. Tony over came the problem by organising coaches and taking us out on excursions as best as possible. In Prague, Helena was our tour guide, we had many many tour guides, but... Read more

    We didnt have low water issues. We loved the Danube cruise. Did alot on our own and saved 1000s. Avalon exceeded expectations. Only peculiar events were when docked aside other river boats. No big deal as we only spent nights on board. Views were... Read more

    We had some trouble because the level of the river was low, and so a lot of our tour ended up being bus rides, and not on the boat as we were expecting. We received a partial refund for this, but it was not nearly enough to cover the amount of trip lost.... Read more

    The tour checked off what it needed to do, but fall short of expectations on delivering a high end experience.

    Despite the conditions of the river and sometimes weather most things we enjoyed. Sometimes a little rushed going from a meal to a scheduled tour. Free time in most places pretty limited. Some items at breakfast not hot enough. Food presented was on the... Read more

    I thought it very good. I will not repeat it, as it is an extreme indulgence. The tours were quite good. It would be excellent to include scientifically oriented discussions, e.g., on the changes to Weinbau due to global warming.
