Superb tour. Iolo was a great guide. He was quite a character, but that made the tour even more fun. This is a white wine tour. If you are expecting red wines, you only get one at the end. But it was excellent!
We were really excited for this event but were disappointed in the overall experience. I had watched the video and for us it did not go as the video shows. I will clarify before continuing the review that we are not uber athletes but are in active healthy condition. We started with a nice 40 min drive and conversation with our guide, Marco, to a town in the Wachau Valley and retrieving the bikes which was straight forward. The issue started with the bikes and the poor quality for the amount of riding we were to do. The guide and the two other people on the trip had better traction bikes as did my husband. We were in the gears he recommended but they were so hard to peddle. The guide paced the trip zooming off as if a race not a casual ride in the vineyards. They had to wait for us often and always patronizingly said are you doing ok. I know it was the bikes because when I finally switched with my husband I was no longer last. At one stop our guide told the wine maker why we were late, laughing and in German, but I speak German and called them on their remarks about us. Not professional! The guide never apologized and even when mentioned the bikes he said the higher end ones are used for private tours. Ok we had just paid over 400 to be told were on a second tier trip...? The area is beautiful and the wines are simple but interesting to try. To note this trip, run thru Vienna Explorer Co., is 70 bike riding and the rest wine tasting lunch and a 1/2 hour hike to castle ruinsvery pretty view. Plus we were constantly rushed and never wandered the town like the video trying schnapps. Also, wish we could have had more information along the ride with maybe headsets for hearing commentary of the wine details as we rode.
I highly recommend this trip. Ivan was an awesome guide. His knowledge of the wines of this region
was amazing! There were 7 of us on the trip and even the non-wine drinkers had lots of fun. The ride was at a leisurely pace. Riding bikes along a path with the Danube on one side and terraced hills of grapevines on the other was beautiful!!
En mycket trevlig tur med kunnig guide! Cyklingen klarar man om man har normal kondition. Dock var gruppen (16) i största laget i förhållande till tiden som avsatts, allt tar längre tid med fler personer.
My husband and I really enjoyed our tour with James and our group of 15. We had a great time riding through the picturesque Wachau Valley, exploring a medieval small town, learning about and tasting fine wines, making new friends and acquaintances from all over the world, and simply riding through the beautiful countryside along the Danube river. This tour is for teens through adults of all ages and is kept at a reasonable pace. I would highly recommend this tour!
This tour was amazing! It was by far my favorite thing that we did on our trip. The valley is beautiful, the wine was great, the tour guide was knowledgeable. I can't say enough good things! We ended up with a really fun group and had the best time exploring the area. I would absolutely recommend this tour-you will not regret it!
