Brilliant cruise up the Danube to melk . We got our own train tickets from Vienna to Krems which linked nicely with meeting the boat at Krems at 1pm for the afternoon sail. 3 course meal was top drawer and well presented with glass of complimentary wachau white wine . Stunning scenery along the way with good commentary on the boat,

We did the river cruise from Krems to Melk and everything was great. The view was really beautiful with all the vineyards of the Wachau, the service was excellent and the food really delicious. The captain of the ship lent himself to take a photo with my 3 year old son who was super excited; I really appreciated this. And most of all, I am very grateful to the staff of get your guide who helped me change my ticket from one day to the next without making me pay any penalty. The whats up service works very well.
