Capitals of the Danube: Budapest to Kelheim Cruise Review

“I absolutely fell in love with this cruise, I can’t say enough about it. I’ve been looking to do a tour of Europe’s capitals for a while now and this cruise has brought me closer than I could have hoped. Honestly, places like Melk and Vienna are even more beautiful in person, any pictures you see will never be able to do them justice. Getting to tour Budapest and Vienna was amazing as well, seeing a city on such an intimate scale is the best way to experience them, I think. I’m booking my next cruise with Saga for sure.”
