We took the bike tour on 22 April 2016 and it exceeded expectations. Metro and train ride to bike shop. Got fitted with bikes and helmets and we were off riding through town, along the river, and through vineyard after vineyard. Mostly a flat ride, with some hills. The ride back was with the river, and was mostly a gently down slope. We visited three wineries and tasted 3-4 wines at each one, climbed to the top of a castle optional hike up a steep hill, put our feet in the river, and had a tasty lunch an extra 10 euros. I will do this trip EVERY time I return to Vienna. Amazing. The guides were fantastic, and made sure to keep us all in line, on time, and on schedule, and even gave some history along the way...

This trip was exactly what I was looking for. It was a nice balance of country scenery, exercise, good wine and a little unpredictability. Mario did an excellent job of touring us along smoothly, meeting our marks and making the time interesting and fun. Highly recommend.

This was a great tour led by an interesting and knowledgeable guide, who was also good fun. The group was just the right size, with people taking part from UK, USA, Canada and Australia, a good mix. The trip is easy with no hills and at a good pace for all. The wine tasting was great and the food stops excellent. It was very good value as we were out for almost 10 hours, with the train journeys. All in all 10 out of 10. Thanks.

This tour was a highlight of our Europe trip and well worth the cost. The scenery was absolutely beautiful! The first winery was the best we should have bought more bottles at the first winery, the wine at the second winery was only okay. Lunch was fantastic for the price. Our tour guide Vera was awesome, she was energetic and made the tour tons of fun, and suggested some other food and night scene places to go to in Vienna and Germany that we would have never found on our own. Highly recommend this trip and another huge thank you to Vera!

This tour was well worth the price and a great first day in Austria! Our guide, Vera, was amazing and provided us several suggestions on things to do during our time in Vienna and also suggestions to make the most of Oktoberfest later in our journey. We got to taste several amazing wines, schnapps, and have a hardy lunch for about 10 Euro extra. The biking pace was relaxed and not too hilly, we had ample opportunity for photos, and the distance between drinks was not far.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

The bike tour was absolutely amazing with breathtaking views of the Wachau Valley, wonderful company, and amazing wine. Vera was extremely knowledgable regarding the wine and area, and even gave great recommendations for food, drinks, and sites in the area. Overall, I would recommend to anyone traveling to Vienna and looking for an activity during the day.

Beautiful scenery, great white wines, and a knowledgable guide. You take an hour long train ride to get to Krems then start biking. Bike ride is not too strenuous as it is broken up by stops to take pictures, try wine and eat lunch.
