It’s not too expensive and we had the lunch, which was nice. Not really much to see and you go on the Danube canal , as opposed the actual Danube. However it’s explained why they did this on the trip, theoretically its an offshoot of the river, still very good. Get you guide we’re excellent again.

My son and I were the only ones having lunch on the boat! It was a good meal, although a shame you have to pay extra for drinks. We sat downstairs for the lunch then went up on top to enjoy the sunshine afterwards. The pasta was nice as were the meatballs. The dessert was yummy. Shame there wasn’t a slightly lighter pudding option.

The boat ships along the banks of the Donau Canal, which is as much of Danube as you may want, although is narrower than the main stream but, on the other hand, it goes through a few of Vienna's landmarks. Pleasant moments to spend the lunch time away from the crowded downtown whilst staying in the central part of the city.
