Join PIED PIPER TRAVEL as we present a luxury river cruise on the Danube for our 25th season of organizing gay groups on the world's most luxurious cruise ships. During this 8-day journey, encounter the grand cities and quaint villages along the celebrated Danube River. Explore both sides of Hungary’s capital—traditional “Buda” and more cosmopolitan “Pest”—and from Fishermen’s Bastion, see how the river divides this fascinating city. Experience Vienna’s imperial architecture and gracious culture, and tour riverside towns in Austria’s Wachau Valley. And in Germany, explore a baroque cathedral and stroll cobbled streets lined with half-timbered houses. Savor the tastes of authentic dishes, learn about local legends, and understand why Strauss immortalized the “Blue Danube” in his famous melody. SPECIAL AIRFARE PRICING IF YOU PAY IN FULL AT TIME OF BOOKING.

For our single travelers, we can arrange roommate shares to avoid single supplement charges! Please contact us for a free Viking River Cruises brochure for further details.
