Travel Marvel is a joke

published

The tour leader was arrogant and asked us to leave the initial meeting because we didn't wear name tags despite 90% of the room not wearing them. I suspect cause most people attending are white Englishmen and we were not which led to a poor start to the tour.

She seemed largely misinformed and unable to share any real knowledge on the tour and relied completely on the local guide. Not sure why she was even there if she couldn't add anything to the tour.

Also lacked information to provide to australian tourists around transfers etc and was purely focused on her UK consumers.

I'd highly reccomend a different tour company. You can't do worse.

Agree with "Ripped Off"

published

15 day cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam. After having 5 days on the boat, told our cruise is over due to low water levels on the river. We were offered a 50% refund or continue on and receive a refund of 20% as compensation. We continued the tour by bus! For 10 days staying in hotels, eating sub standard food, not a happy traveler.
This would have been our third cruise....this one was a very expensive experience I would like to forget.

Excellent in every way

published

We cruised from Dubrovnik to Opatjia, 7 days, on Princess Eleganza. 37 people. Fantastic trip. Very relaxing. Tour director, Dave, was great. Stopped somewhere each day with tour laid on or you could just do your own thing. Small but really good staff. Food excellent and plentiful plus wine, beer or soft drink included at lunch and dinner. Tea and coffee available all the time. We had the cheapest cabin and it was fine. Lots of storage space and small but good bathroom. We had a really great holiday.

Not up to the usual standard. The ship and room is fine but the food, rushed day tours ,and check in process are not.

My diet allergies were notified in advance but there is minimal options at meal times, and the general wait staff do not understand the requirement. Plain buffet with meats and salads would be better

Not Happy

published

Our time on the boat was great but as water level drop and boat trip became a bus trip it slowly deteriorated into a bad holiday —we were given 25euris each day for lunches and expenses lunches were generally at truck stops so food was not to standards set by the ship —at night mostly a buffet not good —secondly we were given free tour concert meal ect but the tour we wanted to do were cancelled these were not on water so why couldn’t we do them —was it because we had to spend so much time on buses that we didn’t get to do tours that we had booked but biggest disappointment was not having night time cruise and meal in budapest we even had to book own tour with local guide and pay for it ourselves very disappointing.

Fabulous cruise!

published

My husband and I did the 15 day river cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam. We absolutely loved it! The staff were great - very efficient and helpful, and some were very funny, giving us lots of laughs. The food was amazing! Excursions were excellent. All so well organised. Definitely recommend it. Not sure why you would pay extra for the dearer cruises. We decided we didn't want to pay for what we would not use - butler, 24/7 grog, all excursions... Would definitely go with TM again.

We have just returned from the most perfectly organised and run 12 day tour visiting lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca. The tour leader Oscar, was a walking 'Google 'and was brilliant at imparting his knowledge.
The local guides were wonderful., particularly Ruben. Accommodation was tops. Meals were very good. Care and concern for the well being of everyone in the group was highly commendable. And it really was value for money.

Questions & Answers

John hollisasked

Travelmarvel Jewel

is it easy to find the boat we are going from Budapest to Amsterdam also the
cost of drinks on board like the cost of scotch red wine

If the boat is moored in Budapest in the same location as we were, its a 10 minute walk to the Chain Bridge. We were very close to the Central Market on the Pest side. Easy to locate.
A glass of wine in the lounge is about 4 Euro, and they are generous portions - guessing about 200cl, close to one third of a standard bottle. Not sure if there are premium bottles available or at what cost.
Hope this helps
