Duration: 15 minutes

Pass By: Wachau Valley, Joching Austria

Leaving Vienna behind you, travel in a comfortable vehicle to the country’s best winemaking region, the Wachau Valley for a fully guided day tour. Renowned for its quality wines, stunning villages and breathtaking scenery, it is the perfect place to enjoy a day away from the city. You’ll see the whole of the Wachau Valley while learning about its fascinating culture and history and sampling local wine as well as some other delicacies like the valley’s famed local specialties.

Besides the highlights, you’ll break away from the crowds to also see the more authentic and off-the-beaten-track landscapes. You also have the chance to visit the valley's oldest church, dating back to the year 987.

Pass By: Burgruine Duernstein, Ruinenweg, Durnstein 3601 Austria

Arrive in the UNESCO-listed Dürnstein – a picturesque medieval town famous for being where Richard the Lionheart was held captive in 1192. There, enjoy some free time to explore the streets and the castle ruins.

Pass By: Vinotake Duernstein, Duernstein 63, Durnstein 3601 Austria

Afterwards you'll go for lunch in a traditional family-run Austrian wine tavern (not included).

Pass By: Wachau Valley, Joching Austria

Then, sit back and enjoy the spectacular scenery while driving deep into the valley. On a relaxing 70-minute scenic Danube river cruise from Spitz to Melk, you’ll take in the Wachau Valley from yet another perspective—the middle of the majestic River Danube.

Pass By: Melk Abbey, Abt Berthold Dietmayr Str. 1, Melk 3390 Austria

Before returning back to Vienna, you'll see Melk Abbey (Stift Melk) - entrance included during the winter months, a world-famous Benedictine abbey founded in 1089. Located above the town of Melk on a rocky outcrop, this impressive monastic site boasts stunning views of the Danube river down below.

While the weather wasn't the greatest but what one would expect this time of year, traveled an hour plus outside of Vienna to the valley where we were able to visit 2 wineries for tastings a large coop and a small boutique both of which were very nice. Lunch at your own cost was provided at a beautiful location highly recommend the smoked trout and meat platter! because of the time year we visited Melk Abby which quite frankly should be a can't miss on your trip to the area. Overall the tour was very nice we had plenty of free time throughout the tour whether to shop or sample more wine! the guide was engaging and provided a lot of interesting information about the wine industry in the valley. for day away from Vienna highly recommend this trip

This was one of my favorite tours of all time. Small group of 6 with a great guide. It gave us to get to know each other and bond over good wine and food. The guide was charming and knowledgeable. A must if you only have 1 day outside of Vienne.

We had a wonderful, very informative and fun trip to the Wachau Valley with our guide, Tomas. He was a wealth of information without being overwhelming. The size of the trip was perfect, the stops well timed, and Tomas was very considerate of everyone's needs. What a beautiful valley with quaint towns.

I highly recommend this tour. We were driven in a comfortable van with a wonderful young man as a guide. I do not recall his name but he was from France originally. He was professional and respectful and very knowledgeable on the wine region. The wine pours were generous at the few tastings. If you want to escape the city for a day I encourage you to book this. We stopped in a little village that was out of a fairy tale.
The Melk abbey was stunning. There is not a lot of time at this stop, but enough to give you photo opps and to decide if you want to come back for a whole day.
The boat ride was amazing. It was scenic and relaxing.
Lunch offered options for all tastes.
I rate this a trip a 10
