Review summary

Was just okay! Did not help to start with a very negative due to KLM flight and personnel.


4 out of 5
Since I missed all the afternoon activities because of missed flight and since KLM was no help what's so ever. Left me with a very negative start of the vacation. Luggage was the last one off the plane. Was great that the Viking personnel was there to get us to the ship.

Waste of time, could not really understand the tour guide and the area was very crowded. Does not help when told watch out for pick pockets.

Speyer (Heidelberg), Germany

5 out of 5
This was the best! Would have loved more time to walk around and look and shop.

Koblenz, Germany

2 out of 5
Castle tour was not safe, very slippery and uneven. For me not worth the tour.

Cologne, Germany

4 out of 5
Way to crowded to go shopping but the cathedral was wonderful. I could have spent hours looking and reading about this church and the history.

Kinderdijk, Netherlands

5 out of 5
Information about the dikes and windmills was well done but the best was the tour of the cheese making part and farm. Thanks for that!

Amsterdam, Netherlands Did not visit port

Waiting for bus to airport
