Has anyone started looking at tours on the Budapest to Vilshofen trip? Only excursion to Salzburg is from Vilshofen on last full day and is 9 hours; I am sure most of that in a bus.

we won't be doing Salzburg for sure......agree much of that is probably on a bus and I don't do 9 hour tours if I can help it. It also appears as if Vienna might be like 45 minutes away, not sure, but one of the tour descriptions mentioned a 45 minute bus ride to begin exploration of Vienna.....so no just getting off and wandering, but when possible thats what we prefer to do.

Someone just emailed me about the only changes to the Mahler itinerary since we switched from the Mozart. So I thought I would share this with you as you may not have even noticed.

Passau Germany
• Original schedule we were leaving at 8.00 pm
• New schedule we are now leaving at 11.00pm

Final Port
• Original schedule was Regensburg with a half day port time and departure the next day. Transfer to Munich airport is one hour.
• New port is now is Vilshofen with a full day and it is closer 45 minutes closer to Salzburg which is a good thing as that is popular and a long tour. Saves 1 ½ hours in the bus.
Transfer to Munich airport is one hour 30 minutes.

As to the time between cruises from debarkation on April 19 to arriving in Budapest on April 23 (night before embarkation) I am still waiting for word from Crystal on a special 4 night program, probably to Slovenia. There are many options as getting pretty much anywhere in Europe from Amsterdam is pretty easy. I know many are planning on using this as an opportunity to visit somewhere in Europe they have not been before as it is just about the perfect time to spend in one of Europe's many great cities. We can all do "our own thing".

The river runs right through Vienna and I do not remember a long transfer at all. I know we took a bus into town, saw a few things like the horses and then had free time and stopped at a fantastic coffee shop. Too many trips to remember I am afraid I think my brain if FULL.

I just looked it up online about 12 minutes from cruise dock to downtown Vienna so I guess my brain is remember well enough!
