      Alte Donau
      Stop: 3 hours
      We'll take a gentle paddle around the famous Old Danube, where those in the know relax during the hot Viennese summers. The Alte Donau (as it is known in German) is akin to a watery village, and aside from the nearby United Nations and some beautifully designed contemporary skyscrapers, you wouldn't realise you're still in the city. In parts, the lake is surrounded by quaint, multi-coloured lakeshore huts and houses, as well as plentiful pontoons to paddle up to for a swim and a rest. If you choose an evening tour you may even be lucky enough to spot one of the nocturnal beavers that call this place home! This is your tour, so we'll paddle just as fast or as slow as you like. Naturally, we'll have some points of interest at hand, but if you'd prefer to just do your own thing with your guide merely acting as your personal lifesaver should you need him, then rest assured, you can do that too!

      Wonderful walk and food and wine!
      I booked this as a way to take advantage of glorious weather, taste some new wine and get out of the city on our longer trip. James was amazing- he met us bang on time and took care of everything. He was thoughtful, prepared, informative and funny. We had a short train trip during which he set the stage , explained the geography and characteristics of the wine region and set expectations for the walk and festivities. We disembarked in a storybook town, saw some historical points of interest and started our walk through some lovely woods. The walk was glorious with some slightly challenging parts- wear good shoes- but nothing six middle aged relatively fit people couldnt handle. We reached the high point quickly and then ambled agreeably through the vineyards, towards our lunch and tasting spot. The path is lovely, dotted with heurige tables and little spots where people drink in the summer. We had a fabulous Austrian lunch in a beautiful courtyard, complete with dog welcoming committee and then proceeded to a orovate tasting. Our winemaker host was informative and we really enjoyed his chemistry with his guests and his wine! James translated and provided very knowledgeable and accessible , unpretentious commentary. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and left with two boxes of wine packed for travel and a mission to return. Worth every penny and a splendid way to spend a day! Highly recommend!

      Once in a lifetime experience!!!
      Went with zero expectations. First impression was amazing with on the dot pickup at the spot by the charming enthusiastic guide James and 5 handpicked team mates. James took us through the woods a 2 hour trek which was a cakewalk due to his constant motivating words. Then after a brief downhill stroll came to the actual vineyards. A very splendid sight of acres and acres of grapes Fahrenheit and black perfect and ready to be picked. After an hour of walk drenched in this splendor came to the most beautiful lunch place, literally ate under the vines. Finally came the much awaited Wine tasting. A warm humble host welcomed us into his home and served us each of his creation with utmost sincerity and affection. Amidst a very cozy pleasant chatter we relished each of the wines and tried to experience a little of the passion of its creator!!! After this 6,7 hour long magic we dispersed dizzy with content and of course the wine inside and in our hands. I sincerely recommend this tour for any one looking for the most amazing wine tasting experience!! Mr. James is an excellent guide anyone would be at ease with!!

      Fantastic tour!
      Great tour with Nicola. (morning kayak tour) She shared so much about Vienna, the culture, the people, the food and the tour is such a nice way to see the outdoor element of this city that could be easily missed. Nicola is so lovely, accommodating and made us feel so comfortable! I highly recommend this tour and many thanks to Nicola for a wonderful morning.

      Must do in Vienna!
      I would rate 6 if I could. James and Nicola were knowledgeable and shared the unique tidbits of Vienna life. We learned a lot , It was fun to see from the water and a relaxing way to tour. The kayaks were first class, easy to paddle. You don’t need experience to enjoy this trip. James provided us afterward with tips and suggestions for other things to do.

    My husband and I booked this tour on a whim. We had no idea what to expect of a kayaking tour in Vienna. We were in for a treat!

    I was a bit apprehensive about a solo kayak - given that I was pregnant and have limited experience with boating. However, it worked out perfectly. We traveled at a leisurely pace and the inflatable kayak was remarkably easy to maneuver. The weather could not have been more perfect.

    James was an amazing guide - knowledgeable, funny, and generally delightful. Originally from England, he was able to shed a unique and interesting perspective on the city and Austrian culture. He has a fascinating background in conservationism. By the end of the tour, we felt like we made a new friend in addition to having a grand time.

    If you are looking for a unique way to experience Vienna, please book this tour. You will not be disappointed. Thanks James!

    We are a family of mum, dad and three boys aged 25, 19 and 16. Today we joined James of Venture Vienna kayaking for a three hour private tour. James met us and walked with us down to the Old Danube (approx 10 minutes from our meeting point.) He is such a great tour guide. Friendly and chatty with a really good knowledge of the area that the tour covered. The tour also included the opportunity to swim in the Danube. James took group photos of us which he sent to us really quickly after our tour finished. He also gave us lots of helpful information with regards to other places to visit and local food to eat. He adapts the tour to suit all types of kayaking ability and we all had an amazing morning and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We then spent the afternoon at one of his recommendations (the train/bus ride up to the Krapfenwaldlbad, outdoor swimming pools with wonderful views) and had a great time there too. Thank you James we have had a wonderful day!!

    Thanks very much for this review, guys! Feedback like this means a huge amount to me so I appreciate the time you took to write it. From my side, you made my job super easy with your easy going nature and interest in the local area, and I had a fun time with you all - especially the long-jump challenges with Will & Nick during our swim!

    It is really an unforgettable tour provided by James. The tour routine is well arranged. I think it has already included everything I want about Alte Donau. James is very kind and reliable person. He is considerate to prepare everything for us, and even a waterproof case for mobile phone is provided. Before the tour, a short course of Kayak is offered and it ensures a safe water activity. During the journey, we visited a lot of famous place. Besides, he introduced the site history and great views to me. I am sure it is one of the best choice when you visit Vienna.

    Chao, my friend! Thank you for your words of encouragement. It was a lot of fun to cruise around the Old Danube with you for the afternoon, and I was glad to help you finally be able to get out on the water. We were also lucky to have the swans come say hello to us en route ;-). Thanks for your booking, and I wish you all the best back in HK - James

    The Kayak tour is the best one in Vienna and James was the loveliest tour guide he have ever had!
    Our bachelor party was very special because it started off with James‘ tour and although we were all Viennese people, we learned a lot about Vienna’s history and secrets ;)
    The tour is around 3hrs, so it’s perfect for a beautiful morning :)
    James is a flexible and absolutely awesome guide - you won’t regret booking his tour to enjoy your adventure at the Alte Donau!

    Family of 4 with 2 daughters (aged 11 and 12) spent the day with James and had a great time....definately the hightlight of our visit to Vienna.

    Got to get away from all the tourist traps and just spend a day enjoying the sun, seeing how locals spend their free time, and get some exercise while experiencing some beautiful scenery.

    James definately goes out of his way to make sure everyone is comfortable and has a good time. He informs you of some key highlights without making it boring or going on too long. And he is a lot of fun and enjoyable just to chat with.

    I would highly recommend you take this tour... You will not be disappointed.

    We did the 3 hour Kayaktour two weeks ago and it was awesome. If you want to see Vienna from an other point of view and do some exercise for your body you're right here. To be on the water is very quit and relaxing. James is the best guide we've ever had because he was professional, funny an interacting during the whole tour!
    Must have tour in Vienna!

    I have booked this tour without knowing how will it come out, but WOW, what a great experience for us!!!
    If you do not want a traditional trah-lah-lah cruising with a Celine Dion in the background, cheap drink and atmosphere for the third-age people, then call James, The-Hell-Of-A-Guide and live a little bit! Amazing experience right from the water, kayaking along beautiful Old Danube, breathing the Vienna for which I am sure haven't known for before...
    One tip - book it in the afternoon to experience amazing sunset like we did!
    Truly...I cannot praise this tour enough, will repeat it next time for sure!
