I believe Affordable tours does a great job throughout the whole process

The gardens of Giverney were spectacular! I also love the light show/music in the old quarry - well worth the extra cost for an added excursion!

Excellent cruise...service was perfect as were all excursions!

Service was excellent. Great ship and crew. The best of everything, you must sign up and not miss this experience.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Viking! They were just fabulous and amazing people! They were wonderful, the crew, program manager, tour guides, canin steward, waiters...just everybody! Best vacation we ever had and worth every penny!

Viking was everything it promised to be. They couldn't have done more to make the trip go smoothly and without anxiety on our part. The only negative if there was one is I would rather have seen fewer cities with more time in each. They were all whilrwind tours which were very good, but left us wanting more.

We enjoyed this trip immensely. The staff made you feel special..wonderful service. Many extras are included in the price. Food was very delicious. Shore excursions very interesting with very knowledgeable guides. Overall a pleasant experience.
