Fairytale Bavaria and Danube Cruise

Imperial Cities and Danube Cruise
2/Oct
J Davies
5 stars
“It was a wonderful experience. The tour managers were excellent - very knowledgeable and organised. The Amadeus Star is a beautiful and comfortable cruise ship with extremely helpful and friendly crew. The food was excellent - and plenty of it. The train journeys were comfortable and the city tours were most informative. For improvement it would be nice to have some more time to discover the cities on our own and do some shopping. One criticism (which I am aware that GRJ probably can do nothing about) is the cramped Eurostar lounge at Brussels station.

Jungfrau Express and Rhine Cruise
12/Oct
Mr David Dewdney
4 stars
“We both really enjoyed our first cruise of any type. Our tour guide for the Jungfrau Express part of the trip, Ian Boyle, was the best we have experienced whilst travelling with your company. Organised and adaptable, he provided all the information we required and more; for example, we would have been unlikely to discover the boat tour of Strasbourg which we greatly enjoyed. We enjoyed our hotel in Strasbourg, being pleasingly large and situated near the station. Whilst we found some of the fittings in the hotel in Interlaken a little tired, we enjoyed the experience of eating on the 14th floor with its stunning views. The cruise ship was excellent and we can't speak too highly of the staff. The cabin was excellent and spacious and we enjoyed being able to unpack the suitcase, but being able to visit different places and will go on another river cruise in the future. The only negative was on the last day when we had to get up very early to travel on a coach to Brussels rather than a train from Amsterdam. Whilst we fully understand the problems of obtaining the train tickets, we were first told that this issue was a one-off, but later discovered it had been a problem all summer. Yet, this was not mentioned at all in the information pack received a fortnight before the trip.

Lisbon and Douro Cruise
29/Sep
David Luckett
4 stars
“Excellent, centrally placed hotel in Lisbon. VG, interesting and informative 3 hr tour of Lisbon, including tram ride.. good train excursion to Sintra and Cascais, but would have liked a little more detailed information. Efficient, interesting train transfer from Lisbon to Porto. River Douro cruise: disappointing not to stop at any villages along the route but very relaxing cruising and interesting transiting the numerous locks. .Interesting excursions but often spoilt by guides who talked nonstop with often irrelevant and unnecessary historical dates and facts without giving information about the places we were passing, especially going in to Salamanca. However the city guide there was excellent. The ship, Douro Serenity. was excellent but the cabin 314 was very small, considering this was an upgrade this was very expensive and not worth the expense, the only benefit being an upper deck.. All the staff were excellent and helpful. The food was varied and with good choices. Full of praise to staff who were happy to arrange a table together with friends we had made on the tour. Interesting visit to the Sandman’s for Port tasting in Porto. Tour manager was not as good as those we had on previous Great Rail holidays. Although an enjoyable river cruise and city visit, this was not as good as the River Danube or the Adriatic cruises.
