Great tour, Guide was excellent. More time in Durnstein would have been nice however overall all the wine tasting and area was excellent.
There are no words to say how much this tour should be recommended. To start with communicating with Viator in regards to my booking was great. I was traveling alone, but they not only contacted me through email - but checked in with my hotel. Honestly, if I had not done this tour my time in Vienna would have not been as exceptional and magical as it was. To begin with, our guide Mario was not only extremely knowledgeable of the Wachau wine region but was so gracious and so much fun. The day is so full. Our small group of four felt like a family at the end of the day! One word of advise, if you like wine, people, and a beautiful experience of the Wachau Valley you must partake in this beautiful tour.
We had a terrific guide, Stylianos, for this tour. He was extremely knowledgeable, informative, and friendly yet not at all intrusive. Wine tasting was well planned---all arranged, no waiting---and included some great selections. Plenty of time to relax while tasting in a beautiful setting. Lunch was excellent as well, and the Melk Abbey visit was incomparable. I highly recommend this tour.
This experience was outstanding and top of the line in every way! My husband and I both, both age 49 and very active, scheduled the tour last minute while in Vienna when we felt like a day away from the city was best. This region of Vienna is stunning and nothing like urban Vienna. The winery visits were incredible. Don't feel like you must be a wine lover to schedule this tour. I drank very little of the wine but savored every moment of the tour.
Great scenery, excellent guide who put you at ease and kept you informed of what was around you. Also very knowledgable about the wines and wineries that we visited. Fantastic lunch! One of the best tours I did on my holidays, would highly recommend it.
This tour was amazing! Our guide Stelios made it a most enjoyable way to experience wine, food and the Vienna countryside even on a 100 degree day. There were eight in our group, four were underage, young adults. To compensate for them, Stelios discussed history, landscape and the economic impact on making wine in the region. Taking the river cruise at the conclusion was a great way to cap off our wonderful day!
Great way to learn about Austrian vines. Toni was fantastic guide. Very dedicated to his job. The day was planned perfectly. Me and my companions had super time. Worth is 100.
This was a great tour and the guide Maria Italian was awesome. It was like a family, the eight of us and enjoyed the tour and the company. Maria the guide was superb and very informative also. Will certainly recommend this tour of course with Maria.
Wines were fantastic, the river cruise was great, and our guide Mario was awesome. All-around great tour - definitely recommend!
Our Wachau Valley tour was outstanding. Our guide Stelios was personable and extremely knowledgable. The wine valley, midevil towns visted, the lunch spot and the river trip were all first class. We highly recommend this tour.
Emir was a great guide! Our introduction to Wachau Valley wines was informative and fun. Great contrast to the historic center of Vienna. Views from Durstein and the Danube were awesome!
Loved this trip - well worth it! The small group tours are the best, and it was really nice to get outside the big city and see this area. We enjoyed it very much and would highly recommend it.
The Wachau Valley is lovely and our guide, Amir, was warm, informative and a pleasure to spend time with. He knows a lot about wine and we loved seeing the small family-owned wineries. The small village of Durnstein was lovely and I appreciated the time to wander. The food we had at lunch was wonderful. The only drawback was the rain during the boat trip but we were nice and dry inside and Amir provided excellent customer service, there to pick us up as we got off the boat. A trip highlight!
Great experience on a delightful summer day. Stelios was a great guide, full of information on the region and also the winemaking. One suggestion I would make would be include at least one more high-end winemaker in the tour, instead of the boat trip. I would have much rather sat in Spitz sampling more of the wine and discussing with winemakers. Of course, others may have preferred the boat trip.
Megan was an outstanding tour guide and made the tour informative as well as relaxing.
This was one of the best tours we have ever taken! From start to finish, it was an elegant way to see the countryside, taste the local cuisine and spend the day in a peaceful, relaxing environment. The fact that there were only six people on this small group tour allowed for constant interaction, and our guide, Stelios, made the day even more enjoyable. The information he provided allowed us to get a flavor of the region, and his knowledge of the food and wine we had made it a very interesting experience. The boat ride on the Danube was a nice way to cap off this day-long excursion. This small-group tour would be highly recommended for anyone who wants to escape the tourist activities for the day and just get out and explore the area outside of Vienna. Excellent tour!
A wonderfully relaxing and informative tour with our guide, Mario! The visits to Durnstein and the cruise on the Danube were particularly delightful! Highly recommended to anyone visiting Vienna.
Stelios is a great guide. Very informed of all aspects of the tour and the Wachau area. There were 4 in our group. Max tour size was 7. Lots of interaction and the itinerary was just right. Thx Stelios.
Fantastic day out in the beautiful Austrian countryside. Our guide Mario was brilliant really knowledgeable and pleasant to be around. We had so much fun and the cruise was out of this world. Mario allowed us to go at our own pace and gave us plenty of time to sit back and smell the roses. Loved it!
Fantastic day out in the beautiful Austrian countrys
It was a nice experience, got to see something around Vienna and well-planned for one day, the tour guide Mario is very knowledge and attended to details. And it was 38 degree that day, I was so glad I did it instead of staying in air-conditioned hotel room. Btw, family loved the wine I bought, one more point to that!
This was a fabulous experience!. The wineries were very generous in their sample selections. When told most of the group favored red wines, opened another four bottles for us to sample after we had already had the white ones. Guides friendly, knowledgeable. Unfortunately, it rained on our Danube boat ride. The scenery was spectacular.
