Private Danube-Valley Tour from Vienna

(17 Reviews)
Duration:   08h 00 min

Overview

The gorgeous Danube Valley is one of our country's true gems and is always worth a visit. Take a side-trip from Vienna to discover Austria's wine country, quaint towns and medieval villages and to visit the world-famous Melk Abbey.

First pay a visit to the medieval town of Dürnstein, where the English King Richard the Lionheart was held prisoner in the 12th century. Explore the sights at your own pace, including the town hall, the medieval courtyards, the rustic wine taverns and the abbey of St. Augustine with its famous blue tower. If you like take a short hike up to the fortress, where Richard the Lionheart suffered back in the day. Don’t miss your opportunity to sample the locally made apricot marmelade and the delicious apricot schnapps.

Further up the Danube, in Spitz, depart on a Danube river cruise (available April through October)A modern cruise ship takes you to the upstream town of Melk in 1,5 hours. Have lunch on board (not included) and enjoy the amazing scenery while listening to the commentary explaining the sights. If you prefer not to take the river cruise we'll gladly make a reservation for you in one of the Valley's Wineries for lunch.

Afterwards visit the world-famous Melk Abbey. The vast monastery was founded almost 1000 years ago by the Benedictines and houses the remains of some of the early Babenbergs, the former rulers of Austria. Wander the ample courtyards and take a private tour of the Abbey Museum, the Marble Hall, the baroque library and the Chapel.

On the way back to Vienna drive across the Western part of Lower-Austria and traverse the famous Vienna Woods. The tour ends back at your hotel in Vienna.

Enjoy the great service and the personal atmosphere of this private tour: Your knowledgeable guide is ready to respond to (almost) your every request and requirement. Plenty of photo opportunities!

Wonderful Guide and Driver. Awesome Michael
We booked a private tour of the city for one day and another full day to see Danube Valley and river cruise. The city and Danube are musts to see when you are in Vienna but what made the experience memorable was our guide Michael. Michael spoke great English, was very knowlegable about historical facts and even helped us find something we forgot from home. Michael even gave us great tips on restaurant choices. Do not hesitate to book a private tour with this company and ask for Michael!!

Very accommodating
Vienna a la Carte was the only tour company that was willing to pick us up in Vienna, deliver us to Krems for a Danube cruise, pick us up at the other end of the cruise in Melk, arrange a Melk Abbey guided tour and then drive us to Salzburg at the end of the day. We really appreciated their flexibility in putting something together that wasn't pre-packaged and we had a great day.

Private Tour “beyond Vienna”
We had a relatively short time in Vienna and wanted to maximize our time. We took two separate day trips- Budapest and Wachau. We preferred Wachau, as 5/10 hours of the the Budapest trip was spent driving. The trains in Vienna are really great, but I don’t think the trip would have been possible to coordinate trains, boats, and tours in a single day. The private tour was a perfect way to see, but more importantly, learn about Vienna , Austria, and Eastern Europe. Pick up from hotel, All transportation, All tours were pre-arranged and we wasted no time during the day. The guides were very knowledgeable, friendly, and spoke excellent English.
