“Way to go”
- VIC, Australia Aug 2016 18 Helpful Votes

As the ad on TV says from the time you start to the time you finish this river cruise you are looked after, you don't have to put your hand in your pocket for anything. Meals and drinks where top quality, tours where excellent with heaps of options and the staff where probably the best we have come across. Tour director Kathy was a lot of fun, kept everyone up with the ships program and was always on hand for help and advise. We would highly recommend Scenic for river cruising.
