My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this river cruise that we took in August this year.  Our traveling companions were very compatible and had lots of amazing travel stories.  GCT's  program directors and the on-site guides in Austria provided excellent information on and tours of the sites we visited.  The places we visited and the extra activities were varied and interesting.  We learned a lot about Europe's cultural history and significant sites and even got to meet a German couple in their home.  We appreciated the maps, the bus service in cities like Nuremburg, and the additional references - books and movies - that provided more background information.  We toured Amsterdam, Vienna and Prague on our own before and after the cruise and the results of our own planning didn't begin to match GCT's. The meals on the River Concierto were excellent - artistically presented, varied and delicious with even wait staff in costume.  The boat staff worked very hard (even putting on an evening show) and they all conveyed the impression that they were there to make the cruise as enjoyable as possible.  The only problem was the tight hectic schedule without much down time but it was a trade-off and we would have liked to have visited more museums.

This sounds like a review to me - not "Website/Forum" feedback!

Please copy and post this in the Review section - the forum (no topic) is not the correct place for this.  People look at REVIEWS for this type of information.

 An excellent review and also "food for thought" on the forum.  I try to post on both ..... especially last May when I wanted to alert other travelers as to how wonderful I found "Spain's Cultural Capitals".

Even if appropriate as an "additional" location on the forum -  the "Website & Forum Feedback" topic on the forum is NOT the place it will ever be found!

Max & Kathleen:  After 12 trips with GCT, we have finally booked this trip for next year.  I appreciate your review on this site, as it was not that long, and encourage you to post your nice review on the Great Rivers site also.  I frequent this site more that most other GCT cruise sites and was delighted to read it.  I am always interested in other opinions about a trip we are considering.

Perhaps you have encouraged travelers on this site to the Great Rivers trip. Always on the lookout for new trips and visit this site almost every day.  Any and all information is appreciated by me. Thanks for taking precious time to share your experience with us.  Happy traveling... :D

Grammyflo.
