" Fantastic trip! "
5 out of 5 stars
Highly recommend this tour! It was my first group tour, and I typically like don't I take off on my own. Everyone was so friendly, the bikes were perfect as was the route and the wineries. I would highly recommend this tour!
" Great wine tour! "
4 out of 5 stars
The bike tour experience was wonderful. Our tour guide Anna was knowledgeable, fun, energetic, friendly...all around a wonderful tour guide. The wine tasting was wonderful, but a bit late into the tour. We had to do site a lot of biking before getting to sample any wine. Also, while being a pretty athletic person, the biking was quite extensive for what I was expecting. Overall though, a wonderful experience.
" Fantastic day trip - thanks Jose! "
5 out of 5 stars
We had a wonderful time on our day of cycling and wine tasting in the Wachau region. Our guide Jose was fantastic - managing to be both attentive without making us feel like we had to watch the clock. A highlight of our Vienna trip.
