Mario was an excellent guide. He is knowledgeable, friendly and well prepared to explore the Wachau Valley. We learned much about the wines grown in this region as well as the history and culture of the area.
This was a wonderful excursion out of Vienna for a day. The wine was wonderful and our guide was knowledgeable. I would strongly recommend this tour.
Very relaxing, beautiful ride and scenery. Many wonderful wines. Stylianos Stavridis was a splendid guide: knowledgeable of the wines, the region and the history of Austria and very friendly and personable as well.
Stelios was great! He was very knowledgeable about both the region and the wine. I would highly recommend him to anyone! The tour was beautiful - we got lucky and had great weather. It was a little difficult dealing with Viator to coordinate getting 8 people on the same tour, but once we got past that, it was a great experience.
Fantastic tour with a guide who was passionate about wine and the region. The tour varies the wineries and lunch locations depending on opening days/times. The wines at all locations were excellent, lunch options were superb, and beautiful vistas plentiful. Note- if you are interested in staying to see Melk Abbey it is possible to do so and catch a train back to Vienna, but you will be a little pressed for enough time to see the whole abbey due to closing times.
A really good day out, our guide Dimostenis was fantastic and informative. The day was well organised with time for wine tasting, exploring by oneself and we really enjoyed the boat trip on the Danube.
great wine tasting experience together with the tour in beautiful wachay vally in a small group of another two nice couples, our guide Mario is professional and very humorous, he is generous in pouring wines too:
Truly enjoyed every moment on the tour. The driver/guide is from Italy, super friendly, helpful and knowledgable. We had so much laughter along the way.the lunch place is in a local farm, and it was quaintessencial with good resonantly priced food. The wine tasting experiences worth everything.
An excellent tour, even for a teetotaller like me. Mario, our guide, was both charming and courteous, and allowed us to take our own time, and never once rushed us. He told us enough about everything, but no persistent talk either. The whole place was wonderfully beautiful, so it's definitely worth a trip.
Absolutely phenomenal! Our guide Mario was great! Very knowledgeable and willing to answer everyone's questions and even escorted us up the steep trek to Durnstein Castle. Everything was exactly as described and the whole group had a great time! Highly recommended!
Excellent day trip! The Mercedes mini-van was comfortable and the scenery was lovely. Mario was a superb driver.
Mario was extremely well informed and kept our small group interested. He also kept us warm on a cold and windy day! Mario ensured our group got on very well and had many laughs.
The Abbey in Melk was glorious! Wine tastings were generous and very well explained. We also tasted apricot brandies and apricot chocolates - very nice.
We really couldn't improve on this tour. It was outstanding!!
The tour was one of the highlights of our trip. It was amazing to see the Valley and Melk Abby outside of Vienna. Our tour guide, Stelios was so nice and knowledgable. He did a fantastic job and was made it a lovely experience. Stelio took us to amazing vineyard for lunch where the proprietors made all the cheeses and meats there on the farm/vineyard. I would highly recommend this tour if you are visiting Vienna.
It was really great tour, the nature was amazing. I enjoyed it so much

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.
