From pick up to drop off a great experience. Guide on board fun and friendly and informative. Boat trip and abbey visit spectacular.
Would go again.
A wonderful boat ride along the Danube River spotting castles/fortresses along the way, topped with a guided tour through Melk Abbey with its beautiful architecture and setup.
Fantastic! Two thumbs up. Weather was not the best but the tour was great. Re-usuable coffin a great idea and should be re-considered in our day of re-cycling. Very educational. Lunch at the Abbey restaurant was excellent. We must learn from history.
This tour was absolutely amazing a wonderful experience, it was very well organised and we loved every minute of it.
Amazing country side experience and serene atmosphere. Good Cruise as well and prompt services. Highly recommended
The family enjoyed this tour very much especially the boat ride looking at old castles and vienna countryside. There's a restaurant inside the boat and the food we ordered was very good. The benedictine Abbey tour was excellent as well.The tour guide inside the abbey was very nice, friendly and knowledgable.
One of the best day tours we have been on. Our guide Thomas was great. The cruise on the Danube was good and Melk Abbey is well worth visiting.
Had a wonderful time at the Melk Abbey and a beautiful cruise down the Danube.
Complementary pick up was a plus!
If weather was nice...our day would have been perfect!
Beautiful ride in the vineyard countryside and then boat trip on the Danube to Melk. Beautiful even on a rainy day. Melk is a delightful town and the abbey is gorgeous. Great day trip.
It was a beautiful trip along the Danube River and the Melk Abbey.
An excellent trip. Very varied. The boat trip was impressive. Good to spend time at Melk Abbey which is magnificent. Guide very knowledgeable.
A day on the Danube River. I loved the beautiful hills around the riverbank covered with wineries. However what really impressed me was Melk Abby's elegant, pure baroque style. For more than 900 years Benedictine monks lived and worked there. The most spectacular areas, the Marble Halls and the Church we were not allowed to take pictures of. But I have to say, it competes with St Peter's Basilica in Vatican. It was beautiful beyond expression. At the same time I knew that they have some of the best wine in Austria. We checked this and it is true!
andefo recommendother good trip, beautiful trip on river boat with drinks and lunch available,
It was a cold rainy day in September,2016 when we went on this trip. But the views along the Danube were stunning and the guided tour of the Abbey was very absorbing and interesting. The guide also gave us sufficient time to have a nice meal at the restaurant in the Abbey and we got an opportunity to try the specialities of the area. He also enriched us with information about Austrian culture, the history and about day to day life in that region. Please note that there was hotel pickup but the drop off is at the Opera house in Vienna which wasn't a problem for us as we explored the area around St.Peter's cathedral in the evening.
We had an excellent day. The Melk Abbey is one of the most beautiful abbeys I have ever seen. wonderful place. The boat trip was also very good with an excellent weather.
went on a rainy day so outside activities was limited, but the experience was still beyond expectations. would highly recommend
a really excellent tour, with a great guide and fantastic scenery. do not miss the castle where Richard the Lionheart was held prisoner until his mother paid the ransom.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The bus was comfortable, the cruise in the back out Valley that's great, and the tour of milk Abby was very interesting. Our guide was excellent.
loved it! bit of history, bit of relaxing time on a boat and bit of free time. well organized tour.
Wonderful trip. It was a great relaxing day after two packed days in Salzburg and Halstatt. Love the boat ride and the Abby was beautiful. Which we were allowed to see a little more of the Abby and more time to explore Melk, but I would highly recommend this trip for anyone.
What a spectacular tour. Cruising down the Danube and then visiting the Melk Abbey. Just enough time spent on every activity along with time to relax, have a glass of wine and great lunch options.
