Great full day wine tasting tour, small group, included boat ride on Danube, several stops in towns
Sep 2019
This was an excellent tour, 8 people with a private driver. We stopped at 4 wineries, tastings at each one, stopped at a couple of riverside towns, an hour long boat excursion on the Danube and stopped for lunch. It was well worth the 125 euro price. Our driver was outstanding, he explained where we were going and what we were going to see. Plenty of time at each stop, you were not hurried in any way. After this experience, I won’t be going on any more large bus tours. The tastings were super informative, you really understand the wines and how they produced them. Pace was brisk but not hurried.

Oct 2019
MArco picked us up at our hotel. We me that group at the office and headed to the valley. Very comfortable traveling in a mini-van with 6 others. Marco was knowledgeable, professional and patient. Wine tasting, lunch and touring made a very nice combination. Only regret, we were in Melk on Oct 13 which was very busy and our group to tour the abbey was too large.

Fall colors and fun wineries
Oct 2019
We did this tour in the middle of October and the colors were spectacular. It was foggy in the morning but our tour guide Hugo promised us a beautiful afternoon and he delivered. The two wineries we visited were very interesting and different. Our lunch stop was at a third winery and was very good. This area has family owned vineyards and the tastings demonstrated differences between them. it would be helpful to be familiar with Melt so as to pace yourself. We ended up with little time to spend in their beautiful gardens. Our guide Hugo was great and we had a lively discussion at lunch regarding immigration and learning German.

Perfect day trip
We had such a great time on this trip! Our driver and guide Adnan was funny and knowledgeable. The company was delightful, small group of 6 people. We visited 2 wineries, and 2 small towns as well as a boat ride on the Danube and a quick stop to Melk Abbey. The countryside was gorgeous. The lunch stop was great too in a beautiful garden with fresh cheeses, meats, smoked fish, and produce and of course more wine! This was a trip I will always remember.
