We have kept wonderful memories of our trip. Everything was perfect: the ship, the organization, the crew, even the weather !!!

I must make a special mention of our Cruise Director John Riley who proved remarkable in looking after every detail and making sure the trip was fully enjoyed by every single passenger.

I just want to let you know that my husband and I really enjoyed our recent trip to Warsaw and Krakow. The hotels were nice and very well located and the side-trips were interesting. Everything was waiting for us when we checked in at the hotel even down to a description of which platform to look for our inter-city train. We certainly were not regimented, as we might have been with a less independent tour. We had plenty of free time to engage in “people watching” and just enjoying the foreign cities. The Warsaw Chamber Opera was a delight. We were pleased to find that the singers were excellent, the costumes and sets were well done. We were close enough to the stage to see all facial expressions of the cast. We were wishing that we had gone to 3 operas instead of 2….

My wife and I were very pleased with the Imperial Capitals tour and quite a lot of ground was covered in the time available. The tour was ably led by the tour leader and the bus driver from Vienna who coped admirably well with the drivers and traffic of Central Europe. The local guides had a very good knowledge of their cities and spoke very well in English and Italian. In particular the guide for Budapest was able to communicate in practically flawless English. My wife, a language teacher was quite impressed with the guides’ language
skills…

My name is Gabriele Jug.  I have just returned from a week on the ‘Romantic Tour of Germany.I just had to write to you and let you know on HOW much my mother and myself enjoyed the tour. The sites and scenery were out of this world, and
what made it so special was the tour guide Sia and the Bus driver Franz. Sia had tremendous knowledge of all that we got to see and the bus driver was really helpful with everything. The hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was perfect.  Just enough for each day. I was so impressed with this tour, that I am planning to do it again in a couple of years with my daughter.  I hope you will still be doing this tour then.Again my thanks to all involved on providing an absolutely perfect tour. Our kindest best wishes to all!

I am writing to thank you for providing us a wonderful trip. We booked the Budapest Express package. Everything went smoothly and was organized very well. Especially in Prague, the transportation service was excellent. We had the best seats of the operas and concerts. Thank you so much. I am sure if we want to go to Europe again, we will certainly ask your company again. Thank you, we really appreciate it!

It has been an unforgettable holiday. Everything perfect on this cruise. No hitches, everything smooth on the MV Poetry. The staff, the guides were all wonderful. We had a personalized treatment. A friendly atmosphere prevailed among the guests. We made many new friends and were even invited to the Captain’s table for the farewell dinner.

Dear Betty, All of our “virtual” conversations paid off and we are having the greatest time on board of the Ms Mayakovsky. Thank you for all your help

Just a brief note to let you know that we are back from our trip and we were very satisfied with the hotels you booked for us. We spent three wonderful nights in Vienna and the hotel Royal and two marvelous nights in the hotel Taverna in Budapest. The hotels were excellent and a great location. We were really impressed. We will certainly recommend your services to our friends.

We just wanted to tell you that we had a wonderful vacation this year in Ukraine on the June 17 sailing on the m/s Koshevoy. Since our return we have reminisced several times about how great the trip was and how friendly the people were. It was an unforgettable vacation. The ship was nice, the crew excellent and the representatives outstanding. The food was quite good, varied and well presented. The balance of sightseeing was just right. We can not say enough our guides Ally and Natasha. Both were very bright, well informed and hard working. They are lovely ladies who have a genuine interest in people and it shows….

Hi Helen,  We are home in Toodyay, West Australia after an amazing 3 months of travelling.  Just to say a huge thank you for all the hotel/tour packages you organized for us. Everything went perfectly – not a single problem.  All the hotels in Paris, Amsterdam, Vienna, Berlin and Copenhagen were lovely and very conveniently located.  All the tours were excellent – so many thanks – you helped make our travels a wonderful experience.  I would happily recommend you to anyone wishing to make similar arrangements.

Bettina, we were very pleased with the Madeira and Lisbon holiday packages. You selected hotels that were top notch and lovely. The location of each hotel was excellent, the tours you arranged were well organized and fun. We would definitely use your services again

Hi Debby, Just wanted to let you know we had a great holiday in Germany. The hotels were all convenient and good. We had no problem getting around on this independent tour. Thanks for your help arranging our trip.

Paul and Kathy Seaman, Doha, Qatar

Just wanted to let you know everything worked out extremely well on our trip. In particular, the trips to Aphrodisias etc and Ephesus were quite amazing. On both days we were escorted by a guide and a driver and no other tourists. There were 2 different guides on the tour but the same driver for the 2 days. We would like to pass along our appreciation to all who were involved in organizing this and in particular to the 2 guides. The Crowne Plaza in Izmir was excellent and we would definitely recommend it.

My husband and I just returned from a three week trip to Europe,which included a 12 day independent tour arranged by Blue Danube Vacations, the Berlin-Vienna Express.  For us, this is definitely the way to go.  We’ve been on a couple of guided tours before and weren’t crazy about having most of our schedule and time dictated.  The independent tour gave us exactly what we wanted, freedom to go at our own pace. 
All four of the hotels (Berlin, Prague, Budapest, and Vienna) were perfectly located in the downtown core, close to the subway system, and were, in 3 of the 4 cases, small boutique-style hotels, with loads of character and charm.  The variety of transportation methods between these cities also heightened the experience – we traveled by train, plane, and hydrofoil.  All of the restaurant dinners which were part of the package were in locations that were easily within walking distance from the hotels, and the hotel staff were able to give us clear instructions.  When the package included transfers, or tour pickups, there was never a problem.  
We started and ended our vacation with rented cars and finding our own accommodation, and spending a lot of time being lost and frustrated, and wishing that we had had the entire trip planned by Blue Danube.

We’re back and had a great time. Erem the tour guide was very very knowledgeable and a good guide. We learned alot! The Conrad in Istanbul was a super hotel and the rest were fine. The cruise was interesting. and the connections/pick-ups worked perfectly. Thank you for a great last minute trip. Our daughter was thrilled and so
were we. We are now thinking of going on a trip in the next year/year ……………….

Hi, I just wanted to thank you for a most memorable cruise. The MS Concerto was a brand new ship and it was wonderful. All of us thoroughly enjoyed the trip and your guide Hussain Ashoor was very good. Thank you for putting up with my uncertainties till the last moment. I have recommended your website to all my friends.

Bettina,  I went on the “Luther Tour” from 8/23/09 to 8/27/09. Very nice trip! Hotels were excellent, tour guide was knowledgeable (Dirk) and we hit all the places we were supposed to. Clever marketing – breaking a larger tour down into a 5 day segment for the Luther highlights; however, it was just right for what I wanted.
