Small-Group Wachau Valley Winery Bike Tour

Duration:   08h 30 min


The Wachau Valley—Austria’s most famous wine region along the Danube River—is just an hour away from Vienna. On our day trip from Vienna in a small intimate group of up to 8 persons, we go by private van to Krems and then start our bike ride on flat paths surrounded by terraced vineyards.

After lunch, we spend the afternoon learning about Austria’s wine and history while meeting new friends. Along the way we visit charming Austrian villages before arriving back in Krems and comfortably returning to Vienna by Mercedes van. It’s a day you will remember long after your travels end.

Tour start: 9:30am, max. 8 people per tour

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.

Great private tour of Vienna, Vachau region and Mauthausen
We had a private tour with Barbara. Barbara spoke wonderful Italian.Barbara is a competent guide, passionate about his work, very communicative and friendly. For all tours we used a minivan Marcedes always clean and prepared with driver and polite.I highly recommend this type of tour for 3-4 days and then explore on their own the other 2 days.

Susanne our guide and Julia our driver were within us for an afternoon tour of vienna, and a full day tour of the wachau valley including melk. We have two children, 7 and 4, and we were initially skeptical we would enjoy the tour but susanne was a marvelous guide, adjusting to bring the kids in when needed, and then continuing to give us great information on history, culture and sharing experience on all that is Austria. She even brought little toys for the car for our kids on the second day. I would highly recommend it! The prices of most tour agencies in vienna is fairly uniform, but with susanne, we enjoyed very personal and attentive service the entire time. Highly recommended! Andrew
