Viking River Cruise Grand European Tour

I recently finished my training as a Viking Cruise Danube River Cruise Specialist. The Danube offers an amazing trip through Eastern Europe.  One itinerary that caught my eye was the Grand European tour. You can see from the map that it visits 4 countries over 15 days. 

You can explore:
  • Windmills of The Netherlands,  
  • World War II history in Germany,
  • Medieval castles, Austrian wines,
  • Classical music of Vienna, and
  • Beautiful architecture and culture of Budapest.

Plus, you’ll have the chance to visit nine UNESCO sites.  
What’s a UNESCO site?  The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization compiles a list of special places around the world of cultural or physical significance. For the full list, visit:

I love the idea of a river cruise. You unpack once and awake each morning to a new city to explore. You don't have to worry about where you'll eat breakfast or dinner.  The chefs prepare regional cuisine to give you a taste of the countries you are visiting.  An on board concierge is available to answer all your questions and make personalized recommendations based on your interests.  

Viking River cruises include your meals, complimentary beer, wine & soft drinks with onboard lunch & dinner, on board lectures, and  one shore excursion per port. It’s the same shore excursion for everyone.

What do you think? Would you enjoy a river cruise or do you prefer a land based tour?
