Is there any rating below 1 Star? Total waste of time. Worst river trip I have taken in any city. Absolutely nothing to see. 1 Star for getting 15 min nap on the boat.

I’ve been on river cruises literally around the globe and this is the worst of the worst. I chose route C since it had the most sites. They kept trying to push me to choose A and B combo routes since you see everything, but...More

In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards
Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks
such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera),
Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral)
and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’
former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as
Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse
and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The
