We recently returned from a Tauck Danube cruise. Everything is top notch and nothing is overlooked for your comfort. 3 levels of tour groups: slow, normal, and the power walkers are all offered. Excellent tour guides and because we tend to do most everything on our own, we were allowed to escape and enjoy too.

We personally like to dine by ourselves and because there are fewer guests onboard, that was easily accomplished every night on our 10 day cruise. Food and wines are excellent and many regional offerings. We enjoy the Gruner Veltliner (white wine) from Austria. Our last evening, they gave us a very special bottle (premium) to enjoy that evening.

Nothing is overlooked for your comfort. Five star all the way.
