This tour was perfect. Loved meeting fellow travelers and the scenery was simply stunning!
The most amazing experience ever. The guide knew so much about wine and grapes and the locations we stopped at were exceptional. I and #39;ll never forget this part of my trip to Vienna.
Need to be fit and wine was not the premium stuff.
But a good day away from cities and crowds.
This was an excellent tour and Giovanni, our tour guide was amazing! He knew the locals, walked or pedaled the extra mile and had a great sense of humour. I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. It was also wonderful to visit smaller, family-run wineries, which really sets this tour apart. I would highly recommend this tour!
A great tour. Ivan our host and guide was fantastic. He is very knowledgable about wines in every detail, from growing grapes to making wine and differences of tastes. He is also great at giving us history of the region. Could not have been better.

We had such a great time on this truly beautiful ride. The roads were mostly flat, the pace was easy, the scenery was breathtaking. I'd say anyone in moderately good physical condition who can balance on a bike can do do this trip. This was truly one of the highlights of our trip to Vienna -- we even made a video of the day to share with friends. Great fun.
great tour. our guide james was great. absolutely stunning scenery!
This tour was AMAZING! Our tour guide, Eszter, was great, very friendly, funny and informative. Our group was small, 7 people including the guide, which was nice and a highlight of the tour, getting to know everyone. The Wachau Valley region is beautiful and on the tour you bike through the heart of the valley, the towns within the valley and the vineyards. It was an incredible experience an worth a day. I would do it again the next time I return to Vienna.

It was amazing because of my tour guide, Hannes, the group I was riding with, the sites along the way, the wine tasting, and the slightly intense workout from the bike. The weather could have been better, but, even on my gray and occasionally misty day, it was a perfect tour.
This is a fun trip, even in the rain! We were fortunate to have the owner of the tour company as our guide. He is a delightful young man who was a fantastic guide. He's very informed about the wines of the area as well as the geology and climate that contribute to the complexity of the wines. This is a bike trip much like the locals might undertake on weekend to the Wachau Valley. It's not a marathon bike ride by any means, nor is it intended to be. The bike trail from Krems runs alongside the main road and there are many local wineries that can be accessed from this trail. We happened to run into quite a bit of rain and rain ponchos were provided. The other two members in our tour were game as were we and none of us minded getting a bit wet! It was all part of the experience. The lunch on the tour was amazing. All of us commented on how delicious the steaks and sausages were! Our tour guide also introduced us to a drink peculiar to Austria and the Wachau Valley called Sturm! If you have a chance to try it, you should. It's only available during the crush and as billed, Austrians love this stuff. After our tour, we'd mention to waiters in restaurants that we'd been to the Wachau Valley and tried Sturm! Their eyes would light up and the normal Austrian reserve would melt away. We would do this tour again in a heart beat! Thank you for a great time!
If you have time it is a MUST DO. It was so refreshing cycling through the countryside through the orchards.The homemade lunch with the local wine topped it and ofcourse the guide was full of details about the place and knew how and what to show. He made the trip all the more interesting.
This tour was one of the highlights of our trip. Fun, relaxing and the sights were amazing! A great way to spend the day away from the busyness of the city.
Great tour, great guide, great wine and enthusiastic company. Bikes a bit 'clunky' and heavy but the terrain is mostly quite flat, so not a real problem.
The guide was great and the tour itself very interesting. The wineries we visited had great wine and the lunch was very good. Thanks for a great trip.
My husband and I had a great time on this tour. Our guide was fun and shared some really good history about both Vienna and the vineyards we toured. We were a small group which made it nice to learn about others in the group and where their travels were taking them too. I would highly recommend this tour. Do not plan anything else for your day. It is an all day event from getting to train station, the tour and getting back. If you have something planned for the evening you will feel rushed so don't.
We are in our 70's and loved this tour. Lots of young people in their 20's but we kept up with an electric bike. My suggestion to anyone over 50. Loved it. The bike baths were amazing and we toured the most beautiful small towns and had time to visit. The vineyards were beautiful, everything so very nice. It was the high light of my visit. A very must do if you travel. This is very unique and wonderful. Tour guides were so accommodating, always looking after every person. This is a five star event. Do it.
Do it. Before booking the trip I had a hard time wrapping my head around why we needed 9 hours for this tour. My recommendation is to just trust the schedule. Time will melt away as you enjoy the biking and wine. Also James, our tour guide was great.
This was wonderful. Fun to ride through the towns and the by the river. Lunch was great and all the wine tastings too. I would have liked to have more time in Durnstein. We had about an hour, 2 hours would have been much better. We could have gone back after our last wine tasting as we have a lot of time in the park before heading to the train station. Our guide was very accommodating too.
An absolute must do whilst in Vienna. Our group was 14 all Aussies - with my husband and I were quite a bit older than the young ones backpacking Europe but James our guide was exceptional and made the tour so enjoyable for us all and by midway we were all one big happy family, laughing and frolicking to the end. Ride was easy paced and not difficult, Views were spectacular and Lunch and the wines were great also. A personal thank you to James for going out of his way to show us to a supermarket after the tour had ended.
Absolutely fantastic! One of the highlights of our 3 weeks in Europe. James our guide was excellent. The tour itself was perfectly timed. We learned a lot, really enjoyed the wine, the scenery and the bikes were very good. An absolute must if you are in Vienna
Our favorite day. Guides Giovanni and Marta were fantastic fun, warm and welcoming. Saw beautiful countryside even in the rain!!! and met some really nice folks. Would do it again for sure upon our return to this gorgeous country. Thanks for great memories!!!
