We were ecstatic about the riverboat operator Scylla. But the Tauck reps awful. One "guide" actually left people behind twice and when confronted with it, said oh they'll find their way back. They didn't know anything about the places we stopped at. They refused to give highlight info while on the river so we missed many castles etc BAD

Most Memorable Moment:

The staff on the ship as well as the beautiful places we visited.


Our first river cruise--it was wonderful. The ship was super, the crew incredibly efficient and friendly, and the tour guides wonderful! We saw so much and had a great time. Even having to change ships because of the low water on the Danube was handled as well as could be expected, unpleasant as it was. A first class trip, as always with Tauck.

Most Memorable Moment:

Too many to choose. Loved Passau with the beautiful church and impressive organ concert. Nuremberg was informative and sobering. The castles along the river were beautiful, Budapest at night from the river was fabulous, and the dinner in Vienna was the icing on the cake--we felt like royalty!
