Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Danube Valley Day Trip from Vienna. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Really enjoyed the trip, beautiful country, the stops we made were great, the stop at the abbey was amazing. The tour guide was very good. The only thing I would improve was that I found it hard to find where the bus parked in Vienna, in the instructions it talks about an intersection at the train station, really it is due west of the train station about 200 yards.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable and well-thought out tour. The guide was particularly impressive with his ability to speak in 5 major languages. There was just the right amount of bus travel and stops. The tour guide explained everything clearly and made the history of what we were exploring very interesting. The highlight of course was the monastery of Melk and we all enjoyed the time we spent there. I went during the winter so we had the lunch option (in a restaurant) instead of the Danube tour. I would have preferred the tour company planning something else since the restaurant did not go to the greatest of efforts and I felt that what they served was a blight on Austrian cuisine.
I highly recommend this tour. Visit to the monastery was great and so was the scenery at wachau valley. Didn't see much at krems as it was christmas eve and everything was closed however seems like it's a charming little town.
very nice break from walking everywhere, scenery in the country very beautiful and the Richard the Lionheart visit something I've always anted to do.
Melk Abbey deserves it's World Hertitage Site Status, good guide here.
I would recomend this trip
We were promptly picked up at our hotel by the shuttle. The bus we took on the tour was fantastic. Tour guide was excellent and well informed. River Cruise was absolutely beautiful. Weather was great! Highly recommend.
The beauty of the countryside was more than we ever imagined. The boat trip was pleasant and staff very friendly. It was a wonderful way to spend a birthday.
this was a great tour and had so many different things to see on this one. The river cruise was really wonderful. the guide was really informative and was easy to understand.
The trip was even more than advertised. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Since we arrived early to catch the boat down the Danube, our driver and guide took us on a quick driving tour of the town (which was not included in the tour). The day was beautiful and the trip great. The only drawback I would note, is since we decided to eat lunch at the restaurant at the abbey, we didn't have enough time to walk through the gardens before the tour.
Great trip and worth the money. We especially enjoyed the Danube cruise.
Our guide Zlato (I think) was great!
The Mozart concert and dinner was magnificent. World class artists in a stunning setting.
The best way to start a bus tour! You certainly got a flavour of a river cruise in a matter of a couple of hours. Very organized and smooth! Beautiful day with onboard drinks and gorgeous scenery along the Danube. Would recommend to anyone.
Beautiful scenery. Enjoyed the tour at the monestary. The church is exceptional! They Picked us up at our hotel on time. Lunch location at the monestary was very good, prices reasonable.
It was a wonderful day and well worth doing! The scenery was beautiful and English Guide that we had to take us through through the Abby was very informative.
Very well organised.Boat trip was just right length and Melk was beautiful.
This trip was absolutely wonderful, we were blessed whit great autumn weather, real Indian summer. The scenery, Danube cruise, picturesque little towns, vineyards and at the end of the tour the magnificent Melk's Abbey, real gem!
It was well organised but we did not care for our guide, very boring and lacking "people skills ".
I would positively recommend this tour
We really enjoyed the trip to Melk. The Monastery was beautiful, and the boat trip was great. I was under the impression that we traveled to Melk completely on the boat and was surprised when we were loaded onto a bus, but once we got past that, we had a great time.
A wonderful tour, very informative, also the bus and ferry ride were relaxing, got to enjoy the views. Make time to see the gardens, they were spectacular. Our guide spoke a number of languages, so was helpful to everyone.
