I really enjoyed my day-trip to Durnstein and Melk! We were a mixed group of English and Spanish speakers and our friendly guide managed to switch languages impressively. He was very well informed and told some fascinating stories throughout the day. It rained consistently throughout the day but it was still great. It was beautiful to watch the thunderstorm rolling in across the Danube hills! Wandering around charming Durnstein was relaxing and picturesque. We had about an hour, with great views and a few coffee shops, souvenir shops and wine cellars open to browse. I appreciated having free reign to explore at my own speed. I was happy the boat ride went ahead despite the poor weather. Beautiful views and I had a reasonably priced delicious lunch. The journey was quiet and comfortable, about an hour. Melk Abbey is beautiful with impressive gardens. We had an hour or so before the English guided tour, which we spent wandering the gardens and smaller buildings. Again beautiful views. We spent around 3 hours there overall. Overall a well paced, interesting and picturesque excursion. Would recommend to anyone. Thank you!

Beautiful views, lots of history and culture, and very much worth it. It was a little difficult to hear our guide at some points, but it was still very enjoyable.

The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and he showed us and talked about everything that we saw on the way and at each stop. The Abbey is beautiful, the library in the Abbey spectacular! and the church magnificent.
