Fantastic day out!
This was the best thing we did while visiting Vienna. We had also been on a boat tour through the Wachau valley, but you see the scenery so much better when cycling through the wine terraces yourself. The cycling is very easy - all nice safe cycle paths and short distances (we rode 6km, 6km, 600m total). We went to three wineries and tasted a total of 11 wines (almost entirely white as that is primarily what is made in this region) along with some schapps, marmalade and mustard. Our tour guide, Josh, was really knowledgeable about the region and very nice and approachable; and the group size (about 18 I think) was perfect for getting to know the other people on the tour. One of the best things is that the tour company is not attached to the wineries so they are not trying to flog you the wines - if the guide recommends a wine, it's because they like it! I really can't recommend this tour enough, it was lots of fun and we saw the most breathtaking scenery while tasting the Wachau region's amazing wines... perfect!

This is a terrific way to enjoy a nice day in the Wachau Valley. We visited three wineries and tasted (drank) 4 different wines at each. The tastings were spread out enough that we never felt drunk. We had a really nice casual lunch (extra cost, but worth it) at the second winery.
The bike ride itself is not too strenuous - and you feel safe because it's mostly on paved bike paths when you're near a road, or it's on dirt bike paths in the countryside.
Near the end of the tour, just before the third winery, there is some free time in the town just below the castle ruins where King Richard was imprisoned for two years. The view from the ruins is worth the climb - but warning, it is a LONG way up and should not be attempted unless you're in pretty good cardio condition.
Sasha, our guide, was extremely pleasant and friendly.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to see some beautiful Austrian scenery outside of Vienna, and anyone who likes white wine (the main grape tasted is Gruner Veltliner).

We had the best time and was truly a highlight of our trip. I will say I would not recommend this tour if you are not a fan of white wines though. The bike ride and views were amazing not to mention meeting others and enjoying some wine.

My wife and I really enjoyed the day. from start to finish all was great. We could have ridden much longer , we really had a great time. The ride was 95% on a slight decline so you really did not have to work at all on the bike. Lots of fun!

The wine tasting bike tour was WONDERFUL. The scenery is breathtaking, the wine is pretty good, and the guides are outstanding (special shout out to Marla -- she made the trip so much fun! Love her.) Definitely do this. It's a full day, but you won't regret it.

My sister, daughter and son-in-law had such a wonderful time. Marla was so great and I can't say enough about how she operated the tour and tastings. Highly recommend it to anyone who loves to learn new things and see what a gem the Wachou valley is.
