Admire the countryside of the Wachau Valley on a full-day bike tour!

Meet up with your guide in a central location and climb aboard the train to Krems and arrive in the Wachau Valley, famous for its striking landscape, top wines and agriculture.

Reunite with your guide for a final visit to a family-run winery. Purchase a lunch served in a typical family run restaurant (sample menu available in the Itinerary) or bring your own lunch, if you prefer to do so .

Your trip will conclude with a brief cruise across the Danube. Then hop aboard the train and travel back to Vienna.

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.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2018

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!

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.

What a fun tour! We had a small group of just 6 of us and the guide and the biking was so peaceful and beautiful. We biked roughly 20 miles but it felt so easy! Our guide, G, was wonderful. He kept a steady pace and recommended we hike up to King Richard the Lionheart's cell at one of the first stops which was such a cool view of the valley so you should definitely do this as well. I bought a couple bottles of wine to take home as well and the bikes come equipped with baskets so you don't have to worry about carrying. We were able to stop and dip in the Danube for a moment and lunch was delicious. No negatives to report, highly recommend booking this tour!
