This was the highlight of our entire trip to Eastern Europe. It was SOOO much fun. We laughed, drank, ate and rode. The biking was not strenuous. Our guide took the time to know each of us and was extremely knowledgeable about the country side we rode through. We stopped at really cool wineries learned about and tasted many wines. We would absolutely recommend this tour!!

My wife and I had a great time on this excursion from Vienna. The ride was easy with several stops, wine tasting was fun and the views were absolutely beautiful.

The valley is crazy beautiful. The ride itself was easy and the bikes pretty nice. Our guide was outstanding and gave us information about the area along the way. The wines were ok. For me, it was more about the bike ride. Would do it again!

This was very beautiful and such a cool experience. It was extremely hot like 98 F the day we took the tour so that might have been part of it but the distance on the bike was much farther than I expected. There is an optional hike for one part that is also pretty strenuous. On our way back I was so ready for it to be over because you basically do all the cool stuff and tastings on the way there and just ride all the way back. I would do it again though I just wish I knew ahead of time what I was in for. Our tour guide was awesome and so was our group.

Giovanni was so much fun as a tour guide. Very knowledgable, easy-going, and helpful. The Wachau Valley bike tour was simply gorgeous in the fall, even with a little rain. A must see, even if you're in town only for a few days.

Was the Hi-light to my trip in Vienna. Giovanni was very knowledgeable and loved the fact he took us to Private Wine Cellars along the route.
My only suggestion....tour group should ask individuals if they have biked in the last 3 months.

Personal and close up. We biked the river, stopped at quaint wineries and had a great small group.

The tour was perfect! Beutiful train ride on the country side, super fun bike ridding, excelent wines, great food, and the place is just spectacular! Our tour guide Givoani was super fun to hang with. This tour is a must if you go to Vienna!
