Private Tour: Wachau Valley Tour, Melk Abbey Visit, and Wine Tastings from Vienna

Explore Wachau Valley, Austria’s premier winemaking region, on a full-day tour with a private guide! After leaving Vienna, travel into the heart of the romantic region and enjoy two wine tastings. Sip on light Wachau Valley wines, and then visit the UNESCO-listed town of Dürnstein to sample locally produced schnapps, chocolate and more. If your tour takes place in the summer, you'll then enjoy a Danube River cruise to Melk; alternatively, if you travel in the winter months, enjoy a long lunch at a wine tavern. Your day finishes with a trip to Melk’s impressive Benedictine monastery – Melk Abbey – before returning to Vienna.

The driver didn’t know that lunch was included with our private tour as the cruise was not an option in November, which led to an awkward and embarrassing situation at lunch. The car he used had a strong odor and there was stains on the seat. The side of car on passenger door was slightly damaged as well. There was no bottle of waters provided during the drive which I found interesting since in less expensive small group tours with other companies they always have bottle water easily within reach. The driver Adnun did try to make conversation but the entire trip felt awkward especially after the lunch issue.

The whole trip was well planned and very enjoyable. Wineries and lunch places chosen was great. Guide Hugo was fun, caring and knowledgeable. Had a great time! I didn't have problems this time, however, would suggest to tour agency that a wine tasting tour should be prepared some space for the participants to buy wine. This group didn't get much but some of the wine tasting groups I've joined have bought a lot of bottles and would have been a problem for this trip. It is otherwise a highly recommended trip!!

My husband and I did the Wachau Valley Private Tour with Marco. We had a wonderful time. Marco was very engaging and knowledgeable about the area and the wine. We highly recommend this tour and Marco as a guide. We have already decided to return back to Austria next summer!
