If you love white wines, you'll love this tour! You'll sample fine wines, visit historical sites and have a traditional lunch. And the stunning views from the cruise on the Danube and the Benedictine Melk Abbey are a wonderful finish to a very good day.
One of the best tours we have ever taken. The guide was incredibly knowledgeable of the wines we tasted and the vineyards we visited. And it truly was a small group with just 6 of us. We also visited the Melk Abbey instead of the river cruise because we were late in the season and I have to say, I was glad we weren't able to do the cruise as the Abbey was wonderful. We have been on many wine tasting tours and this was by far the best.
This was a day trip from 9 am to 5 pm or so...Marco I think that's his name, our guide and driver, is very informative and entertaining...we enjoyed the vineyard as well as the lunch of cold cuts and wine...definitely recommend
A great tour, and Marco was a great guide too. A small group, makes it well as one doesnt waste time waiting for everyone to come, the information is well delivered and it is not crowded too. We went for two wine tasting places. The lunch stop was also a very good place that offered good food and wines. The Durnstein village was quite beautiful too!
Highly recommend it to all as its worth experiencing
The whole experience was amazing. Stylianos is very personable guide that gave great information about the wine.
Nice day on the Wachau with delicious wine and great information. You can't beat the scenery from the boat tour :
Nice place to visit. Friendly tour guide Mario Casalone. Good selection of wine tastings. It will be better if the wine paired with food/ tapas.
Mario was very professional and had a good knowledge of the area/territory covered. His English was impeccable. He had a good sense of humour and was very helpful. We would recommend Mario as a guide to everyone.

One would assume that traveling to the beautiful Wachau Valley on a gorgeous Sept day for sightseeing and wine tasting would be just about perfect... and one would be correct in that assumption. What made this trip particularly memorable, however, was our guide, Stylianos, and his ability to bring 8 strangers together and make us all feel like we've been friends for years. He had exceptional interpersonal skills and a tremendous wealth of knowledge in his subject manner. All of us felt very comfortable sharing thoughts and opinions with one another, something not always easy to do when you have 8 people coming from diverse backgrounds. It was a day shared with new friends enjoying the beautiful Austrian countryside, sampling some wonderful wines and capped off with a scenic boat ride on the Danube, all perfectly orchestrated by Stylianos. He is certainly a great ambassador for Vienna Explorer Tours and Day Trips. Thank you, Stylianos, for a great day!
Great guide, great company, great locations. Thoroughly enjoyed this trip
If you enjoy beautiful scenery and good company with wine tastings, this tour is for you. On a sunny September day, our guide Stelios shared his knowledge of Vienna, the journey to the Wachau Valley, history and wine knowledge of the area. In addition to tastings at two wineries, we spent time in the Danube River town of Durnstein, lunched at another winery and cruised for an hour to Melk Abbey. We arrived back in Vienna late afternoon after a wonderful informative day. Thank you Stelios!
