My husband booked this for us as a way to step outside of the typical city sightseeing while doing something active and exploring more of the countryside. We were a group of about 12; mostly couples but some family and friends groups. Leandra (sorry if that’s misspelled!) is absolutely wonderful. She is knowledgeable, kind, well versed on the landscape and the wine, and very aware of the group’s needs. We had enough time on the two wineries we visited to browse, ask questions, taste about 4 wines on each (and have seconds of our favorites!) have a leisurely lunch, take pictures, swim in the Danube…everything we wanted and expected. We took the train from Vienna and picked up bikes in their office at Krems (which deserves a day trip on itself). Highly, highly recommend - and while we are not bikers we had so much fun and enjoyed the vineyards and countryside so much! We also asked Leandra for a dinner recommendation- she recommended Wild in Vienna and we can vouch for that! Very fresh, well crafted food.
This has been one of the highlights of our summer holiday!

Tomas was our guide and we were a party of 12. From the meeting point to the end of the tour - Tomas was friendly, funny and knowledgeable. He took the time to check in with all the participants to make sure all was going well. The bike ride itself was enjoyable and not difficult. The bikes were well maintained + equipped. Bring a backpack + layered clothing with rain gear just in case. We visited 2 family vineyards and Martin + Christina were both gracious hosts and shared some insight into their world(s).

This was a fun way to get outside , meet some fellow travelers and taste some great wine that you can only buy @ the vineyard or local restaurant.

Thanks Tomas !

This tour was absolutely amazing. An experience we will never forget! The views are incredible, and you really get to know the rest of the people in your group throughout the day. In addition to winery stops, there are a few other short stops to learn more about the history of the region. Here are some tips: 1) Wear appropriate shoes - i.e. sneakers. You'll be biking a total of approx. 30km and will also be able to do an (optional) uphill hike during lunch. You'll suffer if you don't have the right shoes. 2) Bring cash AND change. There will be several opportunities to use the public bathrooms during the trip, some of which require 50 cents to enter. Also, your guide takes your lunch order on the morning train and will take your payment at that time as well. 3) Bring a backpack with snacks, towels, water and a bathing suit for a dip in the Danube - and also to carry any wine that you decide to purchase!

We had a wonderful time with our group exploring the wachau valley wineries. They really made it fun. Our tour guide Paolo was good but not great. He should definitely be better trained in the maintenance of the bikes. We ended up riding in the dark and he did not know how to turn my husbands’s light on. The bike store manager where we picked up the bikes was AWFUL. One of our riders got a flat( no one’s fault but it took over an hour for him to come the five miles to replace the inner tube Thus why the guide needs to learn to care for the bikes and why we had to ride in the dark. On arriving back at the bike shop he REFUSED to let my husband use the WC. This was unacceptable and his rudeness was not called for. The lunch was advertised as 13 euros yet guide charged us 25 euros in cash. Lunch should be included in price. The actual wine tasting was fun. The first winery and vintner was exceptional. The composition of group was what made the tour. The tour operator has much to improve on when it comes to customer service.

Hello Lynn, Thank you for taking the time to write this feedback, it is truly much appreciated. Your tour had an unfortunate combination of circumstances where it was impossible for Paulo to fix the flat tire on the spot. Our guides are trained to fix Puctures where the holes are small. However, in your case the tire was ripped which could not be fixed by Paulo. Therefore the mechanic had to come to repair the damages. This took too long since he was somewhere else fixing bikes. Lunch is not included in the tour and costs €13 each. Since you are a couple he charged you €26. The toilet in the shop in Krems is not open for customers since we are renovating at the moment which renders the toilet not operational at the moment. I hope to have clarified some points of concern. Best regards from Vienna Explorer.

We wanted to try something a little different and happened upon this trip. We had a fantastic little tour group that was a veritable United Nations! Our group members hailed from all parts of the world and got along famously!

All transportation is covered from the Vienna Explorer home base in Vienna and we travelled by U-Bahn and then the Train to Krems on the Danube where we picked up our bikes. These bikes were so very comfortable and of excellent quality! We cycled approximately 15-20 km and stopped several times for some history lessons of the area and pictures!

The cycling is along pathways parallel to Danube and through the vineyard towns. This is not a difficult cycle tour and so worth it. I’m not a wine connoisseur at all (more of a gin and tonic kinda gal) but it was an adventure! We stopped at 3 different wineries a d probably tasted 12-15 varieties (I lost count).

We had tons of laughs, had a chance to swim in the Danube (don’t forget to bring a swimsuit as we did so we dipped our feet into the river instead) and learned alot of the Wachau Valley and the history behind the area. Our tour guide, Tomas was fantastic and has endless knowledge of the area!

Overall well worth it and a must if you want to see something beyond the Inner Stadt!

This tour allows you to see beyond Vienna. I really enjoyed biking from each village to the next to eat and drink wine. It was not overly strenuous and we had people of all ages in my group. Do not worry about getting left behind. Your tour guide won’t leave you behind and more than likely neither will the other bikers with you. I went solo and did not feel left out. We tasted wines from two wineries. The route to the biking spot was very appealing but it took awhile about 1 1/2 hours. I suggest bringing about 20 euros cash to spend at lunch. Additionally, it was a very hot day when I went so sunscreen is essential as is water. The lunch was wonderful and I got the mixed/fried vegetables (highly recommend) with a fried egg. My tour guide was very knowledgeable about Vienna and gave me directions on how to get back to my lodging. I definitely recommend this tour and I think a tour like this will make your Austrian experience much more immersive. After seeing the country side and talking to many travelers I wish I would have had time to visit Salzburg!

Hope this helps. :)

The ride was amazing as well as our guide. The bicycles were in excellent condition and were very comfortable. The wineries were great with great ambiance. We stopped frequently for pictures. The ride took two paths in a round trip tour through the Valley. The tour company took care of train transportation to and from The Valley from a convenient location near the city center and train station.

Great trip. Good amount of wine. Good company. Flat cycle path. Very leisurely pace (averaged around 8mph). Bikes are in a good condition. A short section is through a town so expect to cycle alongside some cars.

I wouldn't book if the weather forecast is showers.

Guide was knowledgeable and kept everyone safe.

We would have preferred if the trip left slightly earlier in the morning as we returned into Vienna at 7pm.

Highly recommended.

A gorgeous way to spend a day out of the city and in the countryside. Highly recommend. Tips for those who book:
1. Check your bikes before leaving the bike shop (including the gears). Some folks in our group had bike issues that could have been resolved before setting out for the day. I personally had no issues, but a bike with issues can dampen your experience.
2. Bring a small bag to carry your stuff. You really just need a refillable water bottle, a camera, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a sweater. Swimsuit and towel if you choose to swim. There's a rack for your stuff on the bike which makes the journey so much more enjoyable (not having to wear your pack on your back the whole day).
3. Get the lunch that the company recommends. It's an additional cost, but everyone on the tour gets it. Plus, it's fun to meet other travelers during your trip.
4. Remember to bring cash to tip your tour guide at the end of the day.
5. Enjoy!

Highly recommend this for a getaway from Vienna. Although there's a lot to see in the beautiful city of Vienna, it's a good idea to include this in your plans to have a glimpse of what other places have to offer in Austria. Also, kudos to our guide Francis who was the best we could have asked for. The chance to meet other people in the tour is also an added benefit of this experience. The time of the tour is appropriate, as we got back to the hotel in Vienna at around 7:30 pm which provided us with an opportunity to go to dinner in the city.
