Art and History on the Danube Cruise Review

“We’ve only gone cruising a few times in our lives but from our shared experiences we can say with all confidence that Riviera Travel has been the most spectacular cruise provider we’ve ever cruised with. We couldn’t believe how many excursions were available and we enjoyed every single one we signed up for. While I didn’t visit the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest, my wife did and she came back positively glowing and I could see how much she’d enjoyed herself. I myself went on the Castle Hill visit and had a wonderful time and I can’t recommend it enough for anyone interested in history. In the same vein if you want a truly unique and exciting experience you needn’t look any further than this cruise.”
