    The tour started off with a tour of the village and small wineries. It was a short walk followed by a boat tour. Lunch is recommended on the boat tour. Highlight of the tour is a visit to Melk Abbey which is spectacular. Highly recommended for a different tour experience!

What To Expect

Visit the Wachau Valley from Vienna. Located along the Danube, the Wachau valley is known for its excellent wine and for being a UNESCO World Heritage Site filled with medieval castles, impressive monasteries, and of course breathtaking landscapes. Travel from Vienna to Krems, a quaint and charming village on the banks of the Danube river. There, take a short walk through the city center then pass Dürnstein where you can get a glimpse of the ruins of Dürnstein castle - where King Richard the Lionheart was held captive - from a nearby hill. Drive down to the village of Spitz where you will board the boat and sail along the Danube river. Marvel at the gentle hills and green woods while you take in the sights of the quaint riverside villages. Finally, arrive at Melk for the last part of the tour - the Benedictine Abbey. Explore the 'Best Historic Destination of the World', an award the abbey received in 2008. Walk through the marble hall, the library and the church famous for its unique frescoes. The tour ends with transfers back to Vienna State Opera, where you can continue exploring the rest of the city.

    it's quiet convenient and d tour guide is patient and helpful. Also, the price is fairly reasonable.(if I go by myself, I'll spend similar amount of money plus quite complicated transfer) Worth recommendation.

    The tour itinerary itself is good enough to have a taste of Wachau if you have only one day. However the tour guide is quite a disappointment, the bus left half an hour behind schedule due to the tour guide was late. He smoked during his guided tour, and lack of professionudm on the introduction and information he provided to the tour group. In addition, the tour group is at a big size and have no sign there is consideration of language requirement and how it should be grouped based on it, as it was not very smooth for the tour guide trying to always switch between German and English.

    Enjoyed the sightseeing tour very much but time spend at Wachau Valley was a little too short while there was ample time after the guided tour in the Abbey. Perhaps the tour can start earlier and end earlier with more time at Wachau Valley and less time at the Abbey. The Danube river cruise was good with beautiful scenery. A very pleasant tour.

    The tour guide did his best to introduce the Austrian history and even the latest tourist events in city center. It would be another choice to view the Danube river.

    Suggest to cancel the trip if it will rain. There is nothing to see and the experience on the boat is bad. Cannot say it is a good trip.

    A great guide, explaining the humorous and beautiful scenery, the scenery of the Danube is beautiful, but the scenery is a bit far from the boat. If the camera is not good enough, enjoy it with your eyes. XD
