Our local travel agent had a great affordable offer, so we were eager to take a weeklong cruise on the Main River to see several of the famous German Christmas Markets (in Nuremberg, Bamberg, Rothenberg, Frankfurt, Wertheim, Wurzburg and Heidelberg). Weather was generally pleasant considering it was winter. Due to the weather and high water levels, the upper deck was closed for safety reasons since the boat passed under a number of low bridges. Both the walking and bus tours were highly informative, with excellent tour guides in each city. Reached the Christmas Markets in Rothenberg and Heidelberg via coach, and saw many charming and interesting sights along the way. The boat, the Viking staff, and especially the cuisine were outstanding. In particular, they did a Bavarian buffet dinner that was amazing. The tour ended at Frankfurt and we were efficiently transported to the airport (30 minutes away) to make our connections back home. In all, we were very pleased with every aspect of our cruise and would highly recommend Viking River Cruises to everyone. Read Less
