Viator.com is one of the main companies featured on this website as supplier for day river cruises. While the company does offer some itineraries for overnight cruises on rivers like the Nile, Chobe, Murray and Yangtze, most of the trips are for lunch, dinner, sightseeing or scenic cruises that vary in length but do not last more than one day. Some are as short as one hour and others are as long as a full day.
Viator has a wide variety of options with more than 4,800 itineraries currently. So if you're not necessarily looking for an overnight river cruise, this might be a great option for you to experience the river by boat in many different cities around the world.
You'll find several pages on this website that link to itineraries from Viator.com. Let's take a look at the company and the reasons why I make so many recommendations for trips they offer.
Viator Vacations Online, Inc. opened its doors for business in San Franciso, CA in 1995, so it's been around for 23 years. The company - now known as Viator, Inc. - also has offices in Las Vegas, London and Sydney.
In August 2014, the travel company was acquired by TripAdvisor, which is one of the largest travel sites in the world, according to Wikipedia. Viator still continues to operate the way it has since its inception.

When I do make a recommendation on this website, it's based on the quality rating and the consumer reviews on Viator.com as well as the overall itinerary. In general, I will not recommend trips that do not have at least a 4-star rating and have at least ten reviews. I actually like to see several reviews. That way one or two good or bad reviews will not heavily influence the rating.
While most people probably do not take the time to leave a review, some do. And those who do, describe and rate the trip based on their own personal experience.
Here are a few reasons why I recommend river cruises from Viator.
