Pick up was on time and very friendly. We were taken to a central point at which to board our tour bus. All the coaches were signposted and there was no confusion over which was ours. The tour passes through some beautiful countryside and villages on the way to the hunting lodge, then on to the monastery. Both are lovely, and there are plenty of picturesque sights on the way. The monastery is still in use, so it's important to be respectful and quiet as you move around indoors. The underground lake was a great attraction and we thoroughly enjoyed it, though we were not warned in advance to bring coats or for how long we would be walking underground - it's very cold, and it's a long trek down a tunnel to the lake. Our tour guide was absolutely fantastic, very knowledgeable and flawlessly moving through four different languages for each point of information. He knew the answer to all of our questions. The lake has a different guide, very humerous and had lots of interesting things to tell us about. Would highly recommend.
Beautiful scenery nice drive through Vienna Woods and Mayerling , but the underground see grotto was spectacular and very interesting historically.
The tour guide was humourous and very entertaining, got to see lots of beautiful sites on the outskirts of Vienna and the underground lake is a must see!
Excellent tour and it was full fun. Guide was very knowledgable and having good communication skills in 3 different languages. I loved it and wish to visit again.
I loved the trip. The places we went to were interesting, especially the abbey and the cave. Apart from the places of visit, you see some of Austria's nature and the lovely villages neighboring the city of Vienna.
We really enjoyed this tour. It was so nice after navigating the city by ourselves for a few days to have someone take over and show us the sights. I would recommend this tour to get outside the city and see some of the countryside.
Excelent.!! The tour guide was very good and she spoke ALL the languages of the ALL passengers included in the tour.
This trip is a must for visitors to Vienna! The beauty of the woods is breathtaking. The stops we had enroute in tiny villages and especially at . Mayerling was greatly appreciated. But the highlight of this trip was the Sea Grotte. This enormous underground lake is fascinating! We greatly enjoyed the boat trip on this lake. Definitely not to be missed!
Charming morning out of Vienna. Beautiful landscape and historic buildings. The See Grote was an unique experience.
This trip would be worth it just for the Seegrotte. "Undersea lake" doesn't do it justice; it's a flooded cave, with many different spaces. Bring a sweater, though; it is a little chilly! The tour also goes through some gorgeous countryside and the town of Baden, as well as a monastery and a church, which show different architectural styles. There's a lot to see in such a short trip! Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke English very well and clearly (important for my mother, who is hard of hearing.) Of the three trips we went on during our stay in Vienna, this was my favorite, as well as being the least expensive. A great value!
Fun half day trip in the beautiful Vienna Woods. The cave portion was very interesting. Would recommend for any age of traveler.
This is a great half day trip if you want to see something of the Vienna woods. The monasteries were beautiful, especially the stained glass windows. The underwater lake was a unique and enjoyable experience even though the recent history attached to it is very sad. Lastly, the guide, who was fluent in three languages made every effort to inform all the people on the bus of the history of each place we visited. He was very impressive and congenial. All in all, I would recommend this trip without hesitation.
The most interesting part in this trip was the Seegrotte. The other part fory myself was not very interesting.
The organisation and our Guide was excellent.
Excellent half-day trip. A 'half-hour "coffee pause' would be appreciated. We liked much also your efficiency and efforts to make clients comfortable. Good hotel pick-up. Best wishes for 2012!
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and I highly recommend this trip. Absolutely nothing went wrong. We were actually picked up on time and my family really enjoyed this trip.
