This 9.5-hour bike tour from Vienna gives you the opportunity to enjoy the idyllic Austrian countryside and sample locally produced wines. On a state-of-the-art bike, you’ll feel energized as you cycle past lush valleys, quaint villages and rolling vineyards. Take a gentle route with regular breaks, enjoy free time to relax by the Danube or climb to a hilltop castle, and receive lunch and numerous wine samples free of charge.
Greet your guide at the Vienna Explorer tour office on Franz Josefs Kai and make your way to a local metro station. From here, you’ll take the metro to a train station and board a train destined for the Wachau Valley — a luscious region replete with vineyards, wineries and quaint villages.
On arrival in the valley, collect your modern bikes and listen to a short safety briefing. The gentle, 15-mile (24-km) route is comprised primarily of cycle paths and quiet roads, ensuring you’ll feel safe and secure throughout.
Pedal beside the picturesque Danube River and feast your senses on stunning scenery before stopping at your first winery to sample the local bounty. During each tasting, a wine expert will detail the production processes and subtle tastes of each wine.
Midway through the day, you’ll stop in the charming village of Dürnstein to explore during free time. Opt to ascend to the ruins of a fortress used to incarcerate King Richard the Lionhear or simply relax on the beach beside the Danube. Swimming is optional so bring along a towel and bathing suit if you’d like to dip in the Danube.
After lunch in a local tavern, continue cycling to your final winery before returning to the train station for the transfer back to Vienna.
Iolo was the greatest tour guide, very knowledgeable and personable. Biking through the Wachau Valley was an incredible experience. You won’t be disappointed!!!
Superb tour. Iolo was a great guide. He was quite a character, but that made the tour even more fun. This is a white wine tour. If you are expecting red wines, you only get one at the end. But it was excellent!
Nicholas was a great guide..I would recommend this tour again. Thank you Nicholas..really enjoyed our time together..Jesslyn Gegg
The description is spot on.
We met Mario at took two trains where we arrived to get the bikes.
Mario did a fantastic job stopping along the way to give us the history of the town. In addition, he made sure we made bathroom and water stops as it was extremely hot.
We stopped for two wine tastings and also a schnapps and cholocalate tasting.
We met some great people and even got a hike to a castle during lunch.
I highly recommend this trip. Ivan was an awesome guide. His knowledge of the wines of this region
was amazing! There were 7 of us on the trip and even the non-wine drinkers had lots of fun. The ride was at a leisurely pace. Riding bikes along a path with the Danube on one side and terraced hills of grapevines on the other was beautiful!!
Excellent! Definately recommend to go. Bike riding was easy. We saw a lot of suburbs of Viena. The views are breathtaking.
My husband and I really enjoyed our tour with James and our group of 15. We had a great time riding through the picturesque Wachau Valley, exploring a medieval small town, learning about and tasting fine wines, making new friends and acquaintances from all over the world, and simply riding through the beautiful countryside along the Danube river. This tour is for teens through adults of all ages and is kept at a reasonable pace. I would highly recommend this tour!
This tour was amazing! It was by far my favorite thing that we did on our trip. The valley is beautiful, the wine was great, the tour guide was knowledgeable. I can't say enough good things! We ended up with a really fun group and had the best time exploring the area. I would absolutely recommend this tour-you will not regret it!
My husband and I absolutely loved our tour through Wachau valley with Ivan as our guide- he is extremely knowledgeable about wine and did a wonderful job answering all of our questions. He the valley and the local vineyards very well so he is able to add a personal flair to the tour. The bikes and helmets were well maintained. I would recommend have biking experience for this tour, you cover a lot of ground quickly, not for novices. It is a very full day, so I wouldn't recommend scheduling anything before or after this tour so that you can really enjoy your time in the Wachau valley and not have to rush- It's too busy to hurry through!
Absolutely one of our favorite days - a glorious bike ride through wine country - even my 12 year old son loved it. Biking is not hard - mostly flat but some little hills - I am not a huge athlete and I did fine but it is about 18 miles of biking I think. Each stop was lovely - nice wine, apricot nectar, nibbles and a delightful tour guide. Highly recommend for family especially with teens, we were with 18 year old students, adults, and a wide range of people - small group size of about 15 or so was ideal.
