  • We met at the bicycle tour shop in Vienna and our guide escorted us to the underground train station from where we went to the regular overground station to get on the train for Krems. The train ride to Krems was very smooth. After arriving in Krems we were asked to choose our bikes at the storage site a short walk from the station. We started biking and were soon in the countryside. We got to take beautiful pictures of the outskirts of Krems and soon arrived at the first winery where we were given wine for tasting. It so happens that the wine in this region is almost all white wine - I usually drink red - but I enjoyed it all the same. Subsequently we had lunch in a little town called Durnstein. Before lunch we had an opportunity to hike up to the castle - Ruine Durnstein - where king Richard was held for ransom while returning from the crusades in AD 1192. After lunch we biked to Melk and visited the second winery. Afterward we biked back to Krems and got on the train to Vienna. Excellent family trip. Highly recommend.

  • Fantastic wines and tour guide, and the bikes were better than expected. Would absolutely recommend this tour!

  • We had a wonderful time on this tour and the Austrian countryside was beautiful. The weather did not cooperate for a part of the day so the planned stops were changed a bit, unfortunately. Overall though, this was a great way to get out of the city, get a little exercise and see the beautiful vineyards. The wine was pretty good too. It is a full day with quite a bit of travel time out and back on the tram and train so before booking, make sure you can afford to spend an entire day of your vacation on this experience. My husband and I are experienced riders and found the biking to be very leisurely however, our daughter and a couple others on the tour thought the riding was much more difficult than they had thought it would be so it really depends on your level of fitness and biking experience.

  • This tour was one of the highlights of our 3-week, 4-country European vacation. It was great to spend a day in the beautiful Austrian wine country. This is a full-day tour - we didn't get back until about 7:00 PM. You will ride a full 15 miles and there are a few short inclines that require a little bit of effort, so it's good to be at least somewhat proficient at cycling If you haven't been on a bike in 20 years, this may not be the tour for you. We are 65 and 68, usually ride about 10 miles and had no problem keeping up.
    Our guide was Jose and he did a great job at pacing the day, keeping the group together, making sure we had time for everything on the agenda, but never making us feel rushed. Our first stop was a small village where we had the chance to climb up to an old fortress my husband and I opted to visit a local historical church instead, then visited our first winery. We were able to order lunch ahead for 10 euros per person and ate in another village, after which we rode to the 2nd winery. Jose was knowledgeable about the the area and the delicious wines we were tasting. On the way back, we had a chance to take a dip in the Danube, a welcome break on a very hot day. The route was mostly on bike paths and we felt safe the entire time. We highly recommend this well-run tour.

  • The sights alone made this trip truly SPECTACULAR. I have never been anywhere more naturally beautiful than the Austrian countryside. The only thing I would have liked to know before booking the trip is that there are only two stops at wineries. I would still 100 recommend the trip! Just would have liked to know what we could expect a bit more.

  • This tour was fun! Attended with my boyfriend and enjoyed a relaxing day of biking and wine tasting. Beautiful scenery. Marco was a great guide, very friendly and patient. There were a few issues with some of the bikes not functioning correctly but Marco solved these problems. We met really nice people on the trour. Recomend for solo, couples, or families.

  • Great day and truly enjoyed Austria wine country. Our group had about 17 plus a tour guide. Amil was a great, super helpful and made sure we all got the best out of the day.
    Can't wait to go again !

  • This tour was one of the highlights of my trip to Vienna. The ride was relatively easy, however, the scenery was spectacular and the was pleasantly surprised by the wineries. Had the pleasure of touring with Amir - he was fun and knowledgeable and made the tour that much more enjoyable. Highly recommend.

  • A huge highlight of my Europe trip. I backpacked solo in Europe for a few weeks and wanted to partake in a wine tasting. Austria has such a beautiful countryside. The bike ride was rather easy and they were very generous with the wine. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and truly enjoyed his job.

  • This tour was superb.Our guide was so knowledgable and went out of his way to ensure our lunch was great and our tour was comfortable.he made this trip a memorable one for life .this is a must do trip when visiting vienna!
