We were lucky enough to have James as our guide for the day and he was a brilliant host.The wine tasting was fantastic and felt as though we were doing it with friends not strangers. Overall a great trip that was excellent value for money, and we’re very grateful to James for such a memorable day.
Our wine tasting tour to the Wachau Valley was wonderful, a highlight of our trip. The scenery was beautiful, the wine and food was delicious. I liked the small group experience, very friendly. The guide was fantastic. I enjoyed the pace, we had time to see the sights and enjoy the day. I would highly recommend it.
Great guide. Trip delivered everything we wanted.
This was a truly lovely day. We were in a comfortable vehicle with a group of 5 other travelers. Our tour guide, Marco, was very pleasant and knew a lot about wine growing in the region which he shared with us via microphone so everyone could hear in the car en route to the first tasting stop where someone from the region walked us through the varietals from the area. There was no pressure to buy anything, but there was a little gift shop which had things other than wine to purchase which was nice since we were going to be travelling for a while after this and didn't want to lug heavy things country to country. We stopped at a small town, Durnstein, where we had the option of walking around town or hiking up to the castle ruins. We went to a lovely little restaurant nearby and had a delicious lunch and more wine tasting. Because it was the very last day of the summer season in the winter, the tour goes to Melk Abbey, Marco drove us to the Danube where we took a sublime boat ride down the river. Like something out of a fairy tale, a few families parents, kids, grandparents got on the boat in traditional clothing lederhosen, peasant dresses, etc. The kids were running around while the adults tried to keep up with them, while sipping beer in the sun, all of which gave the trip the feel of a dream. I can't promise that another family will end up on your boat, but even if that hadn't happened, it still would have been a lovely day. It was also an easy way to get out of the big city of Vienna for the day. If you like wine, even a little, I recommend this trip.
Excellent tour really worthwhile for an understanding of how vineyards produce their wines and also for the wine tasting and lunch at the various vineyards
The tour was very well organized and Mario was a terrific guide. It was an easy and relaxed way to experience the wine country. We tasted many wines and lunch at the winery was fabulous. I would highly recommend!
We had Mario as a tour guide. He was excellent!! Highly recommend this tour. Really an ideal way to tour the wineries, see a lovely small town plus countryside, take a boat ride, and share a meal with a small group of people. A nice mix. Even an introverted traveler like me would appreciate this top-notch tour. We have taken 3 viator tours 2 in Zurich and 1 in Vienna, and this was hands down the best of the bunch. Close friends told us this was a must-do, and I would give the same advise to you!!
We had a great time. Our tour guide, Mario was great. The group of eight people got along really well. Learned a lot of local wines, had a great lunch and drank some great wines. The boat trip back was really nice. We highly recommend this tour for anyone that likes wine, like to see beautiful scenery and wants to visit the quaint village of Dürnheim.
There are two things that make a tour like this fun, the people you are with and the tour guide. In our case we hit the jackpot with both. The tour guide was entertaining and knowledgeable about the region and the wines. He used his knowledge to enhance our experience of the wines and the region. The people you are with cannot be controlled...so you have to make it fun with others.
This was nice small group setting.
