Great to get out of the city and see some of the surrounding countryside on a short break to Vienna. Guide was excellent and spoke English and Spanish fluently for the small number of guests in our party. Would have liked to spend a wee bit more time in Mayerling as there was a lot to read! Unfortunately, it started snowing when we were in Baden and our visit was cut shorter than usual as we were all frozen stiff, couldn’t take as many photos as I wanted due to my phone switching itself off with the cold. A young Korean exchange student in our party was fascinated by the snow, as she’d never seen it before! Definitely worth a visit, but perhaps in warmer month than February.
I’m so glad we joined this tour and get to see the lovely Wachau Valley and other attractions like the picturesque, quiet towns of Krems, Durnstein & Melk. The schedule was on time and just right for us. Thomas, our guide did a wonderful job in explaining Austrian history from tue context of the monarchy to religion and everything else in between. My husband and I had a great time.
Everything was nice, Dürnstein city was beautiful. Our guide Thomas was really knowledgeable. The boat trip was less pleasent than I had in mind. It was so warm and not many seats were available on the deck. The Melk Abbey was really nice and everything was very well explained by outmr local guid. In general I had a nice experience and I am satisfied.
Great day out in the valley. Excellent guide (Marco) with lots of knowledge. Went to the Melk Abbey, two wineries and explored the town Dürnstein and a lovely meal in a traditional restaurant. Thanks Explore Vienna!
The Abbey was wonderful a feeling of great fraternity and calm. Mayeling was a very sad place no birds singing although it was a sunny day. Tour manager was excellent and travel through the woods was wonderful.
