Positive memorable moments were few. As far as the negatives go ,It was a hot night and no air conditioning it was very unpleasant . Singing was way off key. As far as the buffet goes it was very unorganised and took forever to make up a plate .Went back for dessert and hardly anything left . Even got charged for a jug of plain water with ice . Cost $42.00 for 4 cokes and water . Sorry but no recommendations for this activity
An honest review
, Jul 2022
The cruise was great. We arrived to a sea of people and it wasn’t clear as to which boat we were getting on. Please note that if you get an online voucher you have to exchange it at the desk before getting on, this wasn’t clear. Directions to get there were clear. Once on, everyone serving us were polite and all spoke English. The music was lovely, an accordion and guitar for the evening. The food was good, buffet style and what you would expect, a good selection. The drinks were a good value. You will sit next to people from different parties but this didn’t affect us at all as there is places to sit outside and you can move around the boat as much as you like. It was a little chilly outside so bring a coat. I would recommend going in summer so that you can see more going out. Don’t listen to the reviews, the experience was great.
Get better food.
, May 2022
The actual cruise was fine. The same aff was friendly and helpful. The ships captain did a great job navigating the boat. But the meal made me sick and I threw up most of the evening after the cruise. I would rather paid more for better food then had the issued I had.

Would not suggest the cruise is called a sighseeing cruise as it was dark and you couldn’t see anything. When booking I did say we were English and would like translation. Everything was catered towards German speaking nationals so unfortunately was not an enjoyable experience. The food was good.?
Not for English speaking
, Apr 2022
Food is not impressive and drinks are not included. No effort to translate what is being announced to English.
Good Vienna Evening Sightseeing Cruise
, Apr 2022
The food was good and the sightseeing was worth it particularly since we got to see the sunset. The only issue is that you have to share the table with other people you do not know.

The boat didn’t arrive our taxi fare was wasted we were completely let down. This is solely the worst holiday experience ever!

Was strange that we were skirted over to only one section upstairs while everyone else had open seating. Food wasn't so great and wasn't seeing anything amazing on the river cruise. I would skip this.

Fabulous trip. Really enjoyed the sightseeing, the food and staff. Lovely holiday atmosphere with local musicians. My only complaint was that although we paid for return transfers from our hotel to the boat we had to make our own way back to the hotel. C'est la vie. That wouldn't stop us going again. I use a walking stick as necessary but I had no problem with the boat which was great as I was there to celebrate a special birthday.

, Sep 2017
This was the worst excursion that I have ever had using Viator tours. From being picked up 1/2 hour earlier than scheduled to waiting a 1/2 hour at another stop for a customer who never showed to waiting at the boat pier for van while they got tickets for us to board. This was the good part! The boat was a dive and the service terrible. The waiters didn't tell us to help ourselves to food and everyone on the first floor was already eating. The waiters spent more time outside smoking then tending to patrons. The WORST part was the view from the boat - most of the trip was a tributary of the Danube for most of the trip viewing Graffiti painted walls. Then too much time in an ugly lock both ways. Very little time spent on the Danube river. And the music was awful and loud. This was a wasted evening in Vienna and there were so many better things that we could have been doing. I chose it based on ratings on Viator which leads me to believe that only good postings get posted on Viator. CHOOSE SOMETHING ELSE! AND BE WARY OF VIATOR RATINGS!

, Jun 2017
This sounded like a scenic tour of the sights of Vienna at night when they are beautiful...what it was instead was a cruise down the industrial and less scenic portions of the river with managing the locks taking up a good amount of time on the water and the food was mediocre at best.

, Sep 2016
The hotel pick up was efficient and right on time. The Austrian food buffet was tasty. The Austrian music was nice but was really more enjoyable for Austrian people who understood the lyrics. The cruise seemed a bit too long especially in mid Sept where it was dark for most of it.

Mixup in pick-up confirmation, driver thought there was less of us. So they took us in 3 different turns. Viator customers are put in the back of the ship, not the best views. Seats cant be booked beforehand, luckily we all could sit together since the cruise wasnt full. Waiter was nice and food ok
