This was a great cruise that offered so much and in a very relaxing manner, both onboard the ship and on the excursions. This cruise gives you a real French countryside experience as most of the place you visit are small quaint village size place. Only Lyon was the large city with much to see. Very interesting places and the... More

This was my second Viking River Cruise with my Mother. The first was Paris and the Heart of Normandy - which was fantastic. Our boat for the Danube River was the Viking Legend. It was very similar to the boat for our first tour. The cruise leaves from Passau, Germany and ends in Budapest, Hungary. We used Annette with Pavlus... More

Travelled with Riviera Travel. The boat MS Countess was adequate but a little 'tired'. Cabin on the upper deck was ok, but net curtains were dirty. Seemed as though it was all waiting for the season to end. Food good, but wished we could have had more regional specialities given the gastronomic region we were travelling though. A pity the...

Recently finished our first river cruise and we are hooked. Boarded the Vantage River Discovery II for a 10 day cruise on the Rhone and Soane rivers in France. 148 other passengers, average age in the late 60's, with plenty of international travel experience. Vantage really delivered a great cruise. The included tours were all great and conducted by experienced... More

This was our second river cruise with Riviera Travel and our expectations were more than lived up to. The sightseeing tours were well organized and local guides gave us valuable information. The food and service was faultless. The cabins are well appointed and very clean. We were very well taken care of by both the staff of Riviera Travel and... More

The tour guides were the best I have ever had, at every single city. Viking contracts with locals who do a great job. The daily excursions were early in the morning *around 8 or 8:30 am), so this is not a cruise for people who drink hard or play hard at night and then want to sleep in! Since we... More

18th - 25th August we cruised the Rhone river on board The Countess. What a lovely week we had. Our reps Mandy and Glenda were a fountain of knowledge and nothing was too much trouble. The meals were absolutely wonderful. All the staff were very friendly. The cabins were spacious and spotless. The weather was outstanding that week which made... More

Burgundy, the River Rhone & Provence River Cruise This was our 3rd trip with Riviera Travel (we enjoyed a tour to Sorrento in 2014 and to India in 2015). The trip was very well-organised and we stopped each day at interesting towns and cities. At many of these we had guided walking tours which were excellent – the guides were... More

We booked our cruise on Swiss Corona with Riviera Travel to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary. The whole experience more than lived up to our expectations and I agree with everything in MaryManchester's review. The most special memory for us will be enjoying the gourmet French dinner in the intimate Lido Bar at the rear of the boat, whilst watching... More

We have just returned from our first river cruise. We sailed down the Rhone and Soane with Riviera Travel on the Swiss Corona. I could not fault the experience. The ship was extremely comfortable with a number of public areas which allowed you to sit inside or outside and enjoy the views wherever you were. The crew were amazing. Nothing... More
