Di "Although I rated tour good for what we actually did do, there was about 2/3 of the Danube cruise omitted due to low water which severely impacted on the cruise aspect. Cancelling the cruise from Budapest to Vienna past Bratislava was only very partially compensated for by offering the free musical concert in Vienna ( after bus ride to Vienna). What some of us wanted, and did not get from Avalon, ..."

    3.5 - Good

    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.

    A wonderful cruise. Too bad the low water level on the Danube River created difficulties with the embarkation point and final destination. The crew and cruise director made a great effort to make as much of the itinerary work as possible. Avalon is a... Read more
