Hat mir sehr gut gefallen, meine Erwartungen wurden voll erfüllt. Alles hat gestimmt. Der Programmablauf war gut strukturiert. Alles war pünktlich. Wir würden diesen Ausflug wieder buchen und können ihn daher sehr empfehlen. Unser Guide war großartig, bestens sprachlich u. organisatorisch! Der Autotransport war sehr komfortabel und der Fahrer war sehr höflich. Mariazell und Stift Melk sind zwei der interessantesten Orte für einen Tagesausflug von Wien aus!
