People love to tell us how much they enjoyed their journey and we're as honored by their words as we are by the fact that they chose to travel with us in the first place.


I wanted to commend you on the whole experience. It was wonderful and exceeded any expectations we had. The excursions were great and your tour guides were very informative, friendly and witty. Thanks again for a wonderful vacation.

The food, accommodations, guide, attention to details and personal comfort provided cannot be matched. We especially enjoyed the insights to the “real” China. What an education we received!

What a terrific trip! I can’t imagine a better way to see this key corner of Russia than with Viking. This itinerary is a good balance between country and city. The sights were magnificent and the Viking staff was tremendous!

Eatonton, NJ

I didn’t think a trip could get any better than our first cruise; however, traveling and sharing all the sights, food and excitement with another couple made our next Viking cruise even more special!

Our Egyptologist brought a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to the history and storytelling of Egypt. We feel as if we completed a college course in the country’s history. And the entire two weeks flowed without a hitch.

This was our fifth cruise with Viking, and we still say Viking is the best. The crew always goes out of their way for the traveler. We keep telling all our friends about how good a job Viking does.

The entire week was one of the most enjoyable cruises we have ever taken, and we have been on more than 40. This was our first river cruise and we will definitely do more of them; and do them with Viking.

The ship, hotels and cuisine were way above my expectations. This was my second Viking cruise and I certainly believe that you are the best river cruise company in the world.

The cruise ship was beautiful and the cabin configuration perfect. We were able to put away all our clothes with ease. The Viking river ships are so much better than oceangoing cruise ships!

Wayne and Joanie Coffey
Highlands Ranch, CO

The food was consistently outstanding in variety, taste, quality and presentation. We were particularly pleased at the chef's ability to offer regional specialties, yet allow for American tastes as well.

Our European cruise was the best trip we have ever taken. There is now a debate at our house over the next destination, but there is no question about the cruise line.

We want to thank the whole Viking team for a memorable experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip, especially the time spent on board. The staff created a relaxed and carefree environment and our experience was far beyond expectations. We look forward to our next Viking journey with anticipation.

Everything was first class: 5-star hotels…all the guided sightseeing tours…excellent shows and dinners were all included in the package. We didn’t have to pay for anything except gratuities. We enjoyed every bit of this tour.

Your company is a ‘class act’ and our China experience was just about flawless. Viking certainly lived up to its reputation for quality in all aspects. We are glad we chose Viking to handle our group visit.

Arthur and Phyliss Meltz

Our tour escort demonstrated great devotion by keeping track of every person in the group and knowing all our names. He was respectful, attentive and made everyone feel safe, secure and special. It was like having your son take you on a tour.

Max and Frances Caldwell

We, and I believe the other members of our tour, viewed Grant more as a newfound friend then a tour guide.

Ray and Peggy Hey
Hudson, OH

The special tours around the dam, the gorges and the other stops were unique and meaningful… Imperial Jewels of China was a great combination of culture, arts, science, popular culture and national politics and seeing the preparation for the 2008 Olympics was fun too…. This trip was a great experience.

We can’t figure out how you put on this trip for the amount we paid and still made it perfect.
