Review summary

I would  recommend finding alternative flight  reservations other than what Viking assigns.  We had a 26 hour return flight from Amsterdam (Amsterdam to Madrid, Madrid to Chicago, Chicago to Denver) It really ruined the trip because it was such an unpleasant ending.  We made reservations 14 months in advance and this was the flight reservation they gave us!!!


I loved the extra excursion we purchased in Budapest - "The Best of Budapest and Thermal Bath" Most memorable day!!
