Great to get out of Vienna and see/learn about grapes, wine, the Danube River, and Wachau Valley. For me the tour was much more than the wine. The lunch under walnut trees was great. I think the two-hour "cruise" on the Danube was fine too. It was soo relaxing sitting in the sun on the top deck I soon fell asleep!! I wish we could have gone into the abbey at Melk.

Yolo was great! Yes that is his name! He was very informative from the start of the tour. He even changed the pick up location the day before in concern of protestors the day of the tour. Yolo loves the Wachua Valley as they do him. Knows his way around the valley and the really good wines. Great tour!

The most friendly, caring staff, make this evening an unforgettable, beautiful memory and Gift for us to cherish, forever! The musicians are also very talented, performing historical pieces with a great sense of humour, in a lovely "spirit!” Thank you! “Merry Christmas,” and “Alles Gute!” “Cheers!”

This was an amazing tour! Definitely wear athletic clothes and be prepared to bike a ways, but it's totally manageable for the average person. Highly recommend going in the fall if possible, the colors were gorgeous!

The concert was great and the atmosphere was truly excellent!
