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.
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.
