Abbey is stupendous and a real must see. Boat trip was pleasant, but I must admit I sort of expected more castles. The scenery was nice but could have been anywhere and others said the same. But the Abbey is glorious.
really nice trip well worth taking , a coach from vienna to spitz then a great trip along the Danube to melk by boat worth it alone , then on to the abbey half an hour to look round the little village and the gardens next to the abbey are really special the view from the back and the wooded area are worth checking out ,then into the abbey we were met by our tour guide Bettina first rate guide we went on a 50min tour of the various rooms courtyards etc well versed and witty polite etc, the abbey is stunning worth the trip alone ,then back on the coach all the way back to vienna ,do yourself a favour take this trip....
Superb tourguide who alternated in English and Spanish. Pickup takes a while because you are picked up from your hotel by a little shuttle, then transferred to a bigger shuttle at the Staatsoper, before you actually get on your tourbus at a bus depot . Weather was gorgeous and tour was nicely paced.
Excellent tour, very knowledgeable guide and a good tour of the Abbey. The hotel pick up worked well and everything was on time. Excellent value for money and well worth it

This tour is a must for people visiting Vienna. Unfortunately we arrived before the river boats were operating but the trip by bus was most emjoyable and the visit to Melk Abbey was fantastic and a must visit for tourists.
Excellent tour. The scenery along the way was nice. Visit to the Abbey is a must beautiful setting and the church is amazing. Lunch was good and not rushed. Had plenty time to see and do things a nice easy trip. Guide was good and funny . Would recommed this trip to anyone visiting Vienna
Absolutely loved our guide Hans! Very informative. Amazingly beautiful scenery as well as wonderful company!
Really great trip. The guide was informative and knowledgeable on a whole range of subjects, and the drive was a delight.
Loved this tour! Very few tourists around combined with friendly and knowledgeable guide made it a great experience. Perfect way to see the Austrian countryside.
The river cruise to Melk Abbey is worth the ticket. So many things to enjoy on the river, and then the incredible Abbey itself is priceless. We had toured many major attractions through Europe, and this ranks with any of them. worth the time and the money
Great guide. We had a great time. Would probably do again in the future.
This is a tour worth taking. The tour leader was very friendly and very informative. Melk monastery is stunning and you could enjoy beautiful scenery all the way.
This is a great trip. The tour guide inside the Abbey is wonderful.
We have a very good for the journey and really enjoyed the day trip

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.
