Really exciting tour! We got to visit some very unique places and see the infamous Vienna Woods. Our guides- both on the tour and on the lake- were excellent and they made the experience a lot of fun. I definitely recommend this tour to people who want to see some unique things just outside Vienna! It was a perfect choice for us who had very limited time in our journey! If I were to change something, I would add a stop at Mayerling, but that's because of my own personal interests.

We had a great time on the wine tour. Lukas, the guide, was so knowledgeable about wine, and its history in Austria, as well as Vienna itself. He took us to unique stops we wouldn’t have known to visit and it was fun to meet and chat with other travelers. Highly recommend! Lukas gave us recommendations for Vienna (restaurants, cafes, shopping, and more) so I’d recommend scheduling the tour early in your visit to Vienna so you have ample time to visit his recommendations.

Perfect, well organised, easy to find pick up point, exchanging vouchers for tickets at the pick-up point, bus on time, comfortable seats and very nice driver. The easiest way to get to Parndorf outlet.

Lukas was amazing … knowledgeable but not stuffy on the contrary super fan great guy . Highly highly recommend him … it’s a can’t miss

We loved this tour, our guide (Martin) was very knowledge and made everything extremely interesting.
