    5.0 - Excellent

    We had a marvelous time and were overwhelmed by the quality of the ship, the staff, your guides and the food! Our cruise began in Vienna and concluded near Munich. Everything was fantastic. Beautiful sights and the tour guides made sure we went during off peak times so the crowds were smaller, and we never had to wait in line! The hotels were top notch as well. This was our first Avalon trip and we enjoyed it so much that we immediately booked another Avalon cruise next spring. This next one will be on the Rhine from Amsterdam to Zurich and we are adding on three days in Lake Como. We invited some friends to join us and hope they do! Sharing the fun with family or close friends will only enhance the experience. We are excitedly counting the days!

    Booking was really easy! The options were displayed clearly and I was able to filter. I especially liked that they recommended a travel insurer because I've never had to get travel insurance. No hassle experience and now I'm ready for my tour!
