Couple on an Avalon Danube Discovery River Cruise from Budapest to Prague, including a Special Interest Jewish Heritage itinerary
Firstly, we want to thank you for your excellent planning. The Zora was delightful, the Continental Hotel breakfasts enormous. The location of both hotels gave us max access to the excellent public transportation plus, of course, the hotels near (Zora) and Continental, on the Danube. The Avalon Impression is a beautiful ship with the king size bed facing out onto the Danube. We are having a wonderful time. We are on the last leg of our trip on our cruise down the Danube. Pinch me cause it feels unreal. Spent 10 amazing days in one of the most beautiful cities I’ve visited. They call it the Paris of the north for good reason!! The architecture is amazing ... gothic ... Romanesque ... Rocco .. art nouveau ... and Turkish influence. Saw the opera ... ballet and philharmonic .. and one was better than the next. Very talented and professional. We had a tour of the old Jewish quarters where 1 in 20 Hungarians were Jews, over 400 years fully integrated in history. We visited Slovakia, Austria and Germany in Bavaria.
