does a very nice 3-hour cruise with dinner included the meal was excellent the scenery was amazing with what you can see because it was dark and going through the lock which I wasn't expecting was really interesting. the staff were very friendly and it was nice not to have to walk anywhere for a couple of hours.

It is a beautiful part of the country. Melk Abbey is stunning. The guide for the Abbey was very informative. Wachau Valley should not be missed. We plan to stay in the valley next time we visit there. Tasting wines at the local winery taught a lot on the different types of wines.

so glad I found this tour. the guide Tim was AMAZING. he let us go at our own pace, showed usbso many cute less known spots. we had a great lunch and so many wines for the tasting!

Ship on time and beautifully decorated. Lovely ambience. Waiters suited and booted. Excellent service and food delishous.
