traveller reviews

  • Excellent trip, easy biking, wonderful scenery. Boat accommodations good, food good. B. Griener. Timmins, ON. Canada
  • A well organised trip with interesting and beautiful places to visit. We were as comfortable as one can be on a boat and the staff were all happy, friendly and helpful. The information from our tour director Lesley was clear and helpful and we often saw him on the track in case of problems. We felt they dealt with the low water situation the best way they could and we didn't feel we missed out because of it. A trip well worth taking. P. Stuart-Street. Figtree, NSW, Australia
  • Great tour, great people - wish we were still there! I & E Miles Maryborough, QLD
  • The food and service surpassed our expectations. The ease of cycling on superb cycle tracks was better than expected. T. Gouscos Goodwood, SA. Australia
  • A well priced trip. We loved the cycling through beautiful countryside. Despite difficulties encountered with flood damage, the tour still met our expectations for a great time. Nothing was too much trouble for our tour guides. J Sutherland Dunkeld, VIC
From the cobblestone streets of charming Passau to the Austrian capital of Vienna and the majestic city of Budapest, this journey by comfortable river boat and bike offers the opportunity to experience life on the Danube and the surrounding countryside at your own pace. Using the boat as a base, enjoy the beautiful landscapes of the legendary Wachau, Bratislava, the Slovakian capital at the foot of the Carpathian Mountains and the icon studded cities of Vienna and Budapest..
