If you plan a buss tour, If you are far from listed hotels, take the train to the train station, walk across the short end through up on outside busses term 7
The driver, new buss and host was fantastic, I forgot to tip, I feel bad. Explained everything along the way, extremely knowledgeable THANKS
A wonderful day. The boat ride was relaxing and inspiring. Melk is a joy to visit. The abbey is fascinating and the guided tour is very informative. A great all-around experience.
This was a fun tour though a little disorganized initially but, once on the bus all was well. Boat ride fun and tour interesting.
we had the greatest tour guide and the whole experience was spectacular
beautiful country and I would call this a must see and do tour.
We had a amazing tour, the tour is a must for everyone. Everything was well planned and the cruise was beautiful.
Great trip! The experience was everything as advertised and more. Motor coach picked us up at our hotel. Fantastic views especially through the wine country. The abbey at Melk is one of a kind very memorable. The riverboat ride up the Danube is special. We definitely recommend this day trip.
A fantastic day though the weather was bad. The river cruise was incredible and Melk Abbey was a gem.
Take this tour! Walk with your camera! Enjoy the sites! If you can stay longer for so! I loved this tour! So many interesting sites! Just relaxing on the river boat was fantastic! A great experience!
The bus ride, the boat ride on the Danube and the Abbey at Melk were excellent. Our eyes lit up when we saw the Garlic crème soupone of our favs on the boat menu, wunderbar. The abbey is beautiful.
Very good tour as the place itself was really good. Melk town is really nice. It is a must go if in vienna.
Beautiful day trip from Vienna! The bus leaves at 10 am after it collects all the passengers and returns around 6 pm. The boat ride was 1.5 hours and we were able to eat on the boat. It's a very large boat restaurant with a top open deck. The top deck gets full very quickly. If you are a non smoker, I would suggest you stay inside, otherwise there is a strong smell of cigarette smoke on the deck. Everybody smokes there. That was one of the annoying parts of our entire trip.
Also, make sure you order water and ice instead of just water, or you will pay 2 euros for a small glass water bottle that you can't even carry with you for refil, because they don't leave you the lid....
The Melk Abbey was beautiful, our guide was very knowledgeable, although difficult to understand at times.
Fantastic day. Cruise and Abbey are a great combination with only moderate bus trips.
This was a spectacular tour and one of the highlights of our Austria trip. We were originally scheduled to take the tour a day earlier, but when the weather forecast for that day was less than desirable, we called 24 hours prior to re-schedule. Much to our delight, Viator accommodated us. On the day of the tour, we were picked up in a timely manner at a Vienna hotel near our rented apartment. After a one-hour bus ride with an informative and helpful guide, we boarded a boat for the Danube Valley cruise. What can I say? Being able to soak up the beauty of the Danube Valley during the 1.5-hour ride was worth the cost of the trip alone. Then came Melk Abbey. An absolutely stunning place inside and out. In the end, a great day filled with beauty. We would do this tour again in a heartbeat and highly recommend it.
Very entertaining and informative guide. Pleasant trip on Danube and impressive visit to Melk Abbey - the large library is a must see.
Excellent. Great and interesting trip. We had a superb tour guide who gave a big overview of Vienna and Austria.
Not to be missed. Great tour of the Melk Abbey and the Wachau Valley via the Danube
This is a wonderful easy day trip from Vienna. The bus ride is very informative and the boat trip is scenic and lovely. Drinks and snacks are available on the boat. The Abbey is impressive and the grounds and panoramic views of Melk are breathtaking. I highly recommend this tour. Note of caution: the bus leaves from the actual bus terminal, NOT from a Viator office. Walk toward the end of the terminal to locate your particular tour guide and group identified by a sign indicating destination/language.
The tour was fantastic! Would definitely recommend to someone else. The only part we were disappointed about was that we were some of the last people to disembark from the boat to get to the Abbey. The tour guide did not wait for us and we ended up missing our group bus to drive up the hill to the Abbey. A driver on his break gave us a ride up the hill. So I was worried the whole time that we were going to be left behind again on the way back.
