My husband and I spent four days in Vienna and for us this was a great way to see something else than just the city life. Beautiful nature, easy bicycle ride, great wine and a chance to meet new people - we made two new friends! Our guide Tim was excellent. Very friendly, thorough and humorous. We highly recommend going on this day trip.

This is a well run tour and great fun. Our guide, Thomas, was excellent. The company handles everything and the only expenses are lunch, about 13 Euros, and wine purchases. They'll even set you up with panniers if you think you'll be buying. The terrain is not strenuous in the least. Gorgeous scenery. Highly recommended.

This was great fun and something a bit different to do during a visit to Vienna. We started by meeting our guide, Sina, in Vienna and travelling out by train to the wine region to collect the bikes and get on our way. We had a lovely group with a mixture of solo travellers and a couple. Sina was great at pointing out sights and stopping to give us information about the area we were cycling through, the different grapes and the vineyards and local history. He was very attentive to making sure we were happy with the bikes and that no-one got left behind. He also brought rain ponchos (which were sadly needed!). There were plenty of opportunities to refill water bottles along the way so no need to bring more than one bottle with you. We visited two wine makers for tastings and the pretty little town of Durnstein for lunch with time to explore. The views were absolutely stunning throughout. All in all, this was a brilliant experience that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend!
