Loved the Melk Abbey tour. River cruise was nice. However we find them a bit long. We took this tour for the Abbey visit and were not disappointed. Eat lunch in Melk at the first café upon your bus arrival. Skip lunch on the boat unless you want a snack versus a nice lunch.

Very well organized. The cruise on the Danube was relaxing and the scenery spectacular. The highlight of the trip however is the visit to the Melk Abbey and church. Wow! Highly recommend this tour because it blends in cultural / artistic touring with nature!

We visited Austria for 9 days in July so we had time to take this tour. Great way to experience the Danube, country side, and Melk Abbey.

Took a bus ride, and part way, boarded a boat for the river cruise. Lovely scenery, Melk Abbey is beautiful. The trip through the wine region was very scenic and beautiful, even on an overcast day.

This trip was the best part of my visit to Austria. The trip was well organized. The guide was knowledgeable. The pace was appropriate for a mixed group of ages. I especially enjoyed the visit to the Benedictine Abby. Don't miss this if you visit to Vienna and crave some time in the countryside.

The tour was worth the money and a great day out if on limited time. The Melk Abbey was my highlight. The cruise portion was very good and interesting but little commentary contrary to what they said.

Complimentary pick-up from hotel was great, driver then dropped us off at the central meeting point for our bus, each bus port is marked with the specific tour easy to find, our tour guide was very well organized and informative, and the boat ride to Melk Abbey was lovely...as was our tour of Melk Abbey and the BEAUTIFUL gardens!!! Highly recommend this tour!

This tour is awesome each time I do it! The boat ride on the Danube alone is worth it but the town of Melk and the Abbey are spectacular too.

I had the same guide, Tommy, on both tours October 2013 and May 2015. He is fluent in English, Spanish, French and German, and is quite impressive. In fact, at the main bus terminal, he was helping most of the customers figure out which bus to get on.

The tour guide for the Abbey this time was great!! She was funny, animated and very engaged with the tour group. The views of the town from the Abbey were great in the Spring, but are really spectacular in the fall when the leaves change and are full of vibrant colors. So I recommend a mid-October trip.

This is a MUST DO tour in Austria!

My wife and I wanted to see the Danube and countryside and this tour provided a perfect opportunity to do so from a ship. We were picked up from our hotel and Driven to a meeting point where all the tourists were divided by language speaking groups - ours was in English. The time on the Danube was superb, our tour guide was very good, and the monastery at Melk was a real plus. This tour was an exceptional value. Highly recommend.
