Spring biking along the Donau
The bike and boat along the Donau from Passau to Budapest was wonderful. Despite the unusually cool and rainy weather, we had a great time. The tour was very well outlined and the biking trails well marked. Although we biked on our own, there was always a sense of security that help was available at any time should it be needed. The ship was very nice and the food excellent. No complaints what so ever and we would gladly do it again!

Excellent bike and boat trip with nice accommodations and super service on the boat, the MS Primadonna. The food was varied and delicious and the information provided by the tour guide, Herwig Bremberger, was thorough and informative. The bike paths were well marked and for the most part entirely free of automobiles. The rental bikes were generally very good and well-suited for the terrain, with the exception of one e-bike rented by a member of our group that had mechanical issues that were unresolved for the duration of our trip, in spite of being brought to the attention of the staff. In general, a highly recommendable trip for bikers of all experience levels who enjoy the beauty of nature, culture, history, travel and just relaxing and having a great vacation.

Wer der Donau nachspüren möchte, und sich rundherum betreut wissen will, wem die eigene Fahrrad-Aktivität wichtig und die Geborgenheit eines Klasse-Schiffes und seiner Besatzung willkommen ist, dem fehlt es auf dieser Tour auf der Primadonna an nichts. Eine tolle Erfahrung

Tolles Erlebnis!
Schönes Schiff mit entsprechend ansprechender Einrichtung und ausreichend großen Kabinen. Freundliche zuvorkommende Besatzung, ohne Ausnahme. Das einmalige Erlebnis auf der Oberdeckkabine den Fluss Tag und Nacht aus nächster Nähe zu erleben war einzigartig schön. Die Radtouren waren teilweise ein kleines Abenteuer, da die Dame, die die Radtouren erklärte, wohl noch nie eine der Strecken selbst gefahren ist. Das war ab und zu etwas nervig und hätte besser gemacht werden können. Wir waren nicht die einzigen die sich verfahren haben. Das ist aber der einzige Kritikpunkt! Ansonsten werden wir die gleiche Route mit dem gleichen Schiff 2018 mit Eurobike wiederholen. Wir freuen uns jetzt schon!
