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

    4.5 - Excellent

    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.

    Despite the trials of low water at either end of the cruise, crew worked very hard to make the best of everything, Thoroughly enjoyed and would go again
