The cruise segment was very nice; however, the Sheraton hotel in Berlin disappointed us in lack of inadequate charging connections for our phones. The Prague Hilton was superior in such amenities and other services. Our cruise director, Simon, was outstanding. Our return flights had too many connections and especially delays in departures which resulted in missing flight connections. Delta was several hours late leaving Amsterdam and again leaving Detroit. Having to leave our hotel in Prague at 3:00 am to start our travel home was difficult, but all the flight delays made it even more exhausting. Overall, we had a wonderful time and sincerely appreciate Derek and Affordable Tours for arranging our trip.

This was our 5th river cruise on Viking. We loved this last one as well as all the previous cruises. Viking is very consistent and you know exactly what to expect and you get it. Total care from pick up at the airport to start the tour through to helping with departure at the airport at the end of the tour. The excursions, the cabin, the food, the crew. Absolutely fantastic. Wonderful company.

Food was great. Some outside tour guides were not up to our expectations.
