    Enjoyable day and tour! It was not a WOW but very pleasant day. Our guide spoke in English and Spanish and was very knowledgeable about various sites along the way. First stop was Durnstein, a lovely ancient village, with a beautiful church but we wish we had at least 30 minutes longer here. Next stop was the very enjoyable river boat ride to the Melk Abbey. Touring the abbey was a disappointment as the “tour” was primarily an exhibition of various artifacts of the abbey and did not include any guided information about the church. Lunch in the restaurant was delicious and quick. Wear comfortable walking shoes!

    My husband and I were first scheduled for the wine bike tour but due to weather switched to van tour.
    Our guide was wonderful ,super friendly and knowledgeable. Only three of us were on the tour. We stopped at 2 vineyards and had about 10 tastings. We also stopped at one of the local villages where we had an hour to explore. He guide recommended hiking up to the dürnstein castle for great views of the Danube; was totally worth the hike! We also enjoyed a stop at a beautiful local restaurant for lunch with our guide. The tour ended with a stop at the Melk Abbey. We really enjoyed this trip , it was an amazing day with a gracious guide( sorry I forgot his name was from Italy and played the drums- really made the day special) :)

    A total waste of money………Booked night cruise on Danube with credit card and ticket on email but arrived and not on list. We were eventually shown to worst table until one kind waiter moved us upstairs to slightly better one.
    Food was school canteen standard - say no more.
    Cruise was an hour on canal and waiting in lock followed by just 45 mins on Danube before another hour in lock/canal.
    Tour blurb said English guide but there was not one word of information about journey or buildings in any language.

    I try and find something wacky, wierd to do or see wherever we go, this ticked both boxes. Recommend pre booking as it's busy and it's cash only.
    Driving your own island down the danube was madness. Take your own drinks and snacks. Ideal for group's. We booked an hour, but you could do two hours easily. We took uber there from town. Post boat trip there is a small 'bar' then walk 15mins towards the main bridge for another bar.
    Do it, you will have fun.

    So the people of Vienna are less than helpful! Trying to find a stop for the buses is almost impossible! When we did find one, the only friendly and helpful person was a guy who worked for the big bus company! Shame that we couldn’t take him with us.. we missed going to prater park as the traffic was soooo bad as little did we know( same weekend as marathon!) Sad because we paid for it as part of trip. The river cruise was horrendous! No direction of where to go or wait and then you sat in a lock for 20 minutes whilst you can’t hear the tour commentary as the boat is a restaurant too !
    And the bus leaks water when it rains !

    The private-organized package for Prague, Vienna Bratislava and Budapest was amazing. Service throughout the entire experience was exceptional. Transfers were comfortable and punctual, centered location hotels with courteous staff, meals excellent, tours informative and transportation convenient. I liked having private tours in each cities but then to have free time as well to explore on our own. Overall we had a really great experience from start to finish. All my questions in the beginning were answered quickly and I really think we received a great value for the costs. THANK YOU For making this a stress free and memorable experience. I highly recommend it to everyone.

    My family and I had a terrific time on the tour. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Admittedly, I did not know much about Vienna prior to the tour, but our guide told us a lot of interesting things about the city and why it's so important. The actual kayaking was great too- the boats were lightweight and very easy to move/handle. My mother says that it was the absolute highlight of our trip here to Vienna, and I'd have to agree with that. I'd highly recommend this to anyone visiting the city.

    We were supposed to be picked up at our hotel in Vienna. It was confirmed by the tour operators, Yo Tours. At 7 a.m., we went and stood outside our hotel for over an hour. I tried calling twice (number was identified as calling India) and never got any results. I feel like I was scammed out of $340.00. Do not book anything with Yo Tours.
