"A truly wonderful experience. Viking is a first-class country house cruise, with chances to meet diverse and interesting people, whilst enjoying panoramic river bank views with high quality guided historic city tours - faultless!"
Roy & Ann Gormley, Edinburgh

"We took a fantastic value for money rail/hotel break with Omega Holidays to London. The Best Western Palm Hotel is in a good location. Rooms were very comfortable, nice bar area, good buffet breakfast and very helpful staff. The restaurant didn't have a huge choice of menu but food was good and prices very reasonable."
Alison McWilliam, Alford

"Last year, my wife and I toured the Outer Hebrides, travelling from Stornoway to Barra which was so interesting and enjoyable. This year we went Island Hopping in the Southern Hebrides - another great holiday. Each time we have been with Brightwater Holidays. We have been exceedingly pleased with the services provided, travelling in a comfortable coach, excellent drivers, also our Tour Managers who have been so helpful and who imparted an enormous amount of knowledge and humour throughout. Experiences we would recommend to others."
Scott Henderson, Angus

"Luxury, fabulous food, remarkable history, all this experienced on a trip to China with Viking River Cruises. Expectations were high, but those expectations were far exceeded. This trip was just extraordinary. "
Patricia Cripps, Musselburgh, Scotland

"I cannot begin to express what a fantastic time my wife and I had on our "India-Tigers & Taj Mahal" trip. The mix of luxury and rustic accommodation works so well, and gives a feeling of having seen real India. Spotting a tiger in Ranthambore was such a magic sight, the icing on the cake." Richard Crook

"We took our first ever Viking River Cruise from Amsterdam to Basle on board the Helvetia. All of our expectations were exceeded: the welcome arrival on board; spacious cabin; excellent meals; fantastic cruise director Rene and his team plus knowledgeable guides for each excursion ensured our tours were memorable. We look forward to new adventures on our next river cruise."
Steve & Pat Whyte, Aberdeen

The holiday was so well organised and well chosen and there wasn't a single hitch."
Mrs R., Aberdeen.

Mrs E. Tait

Mrs C., Aberdeen

"A truly wonderful experience. Viking is a first-class country house cruise, with chances to meet diverse and interesting people, whilst enjoying panoramic river bank views with high quality guided historic city tours - faultless!" Mr & Mrs G., Edinburgh
"What can I say? Best holiday for a long time. I don't know how you can do it for the price! To go from Aberdeen with British Airways via Heathrow and on to Barcelona, be picked up and spend a week in a top hotel (Marvel, Coma Ruga) on half board and have guided walks is just out of this world."
Mr L., Aberdeen

"We have returned home after a very enjoyable holiday to Tenerife. It was a great bonus for us to be able to fly direct from Aberdeen. The Quinta Park Suites were excellent. Our courier was first class, and was there to advise if required, but we were left to fend for ourselves if we wished. Thank you for an excellent holiday."
Mr & Mrs B., Aberdeen
