What people are saying about Vienna

The tour itself was great. The only challenge was that the guide was talking in 3 languages : German, Spanish and English. It was difficult to keep up. We understand though that there are still not enough tourists . I would recommend this tour regardless.

The church is so beautiful and mesmerising that the concert only added another star to its beauty! The place, the ambience, the artists, it was all so amazing that I am so sure to recommend it to anyone visiting Vienna!!

This a real treat - highly recommended! Very easy to find, super friendly staff, food was yummy and well timed to last near enough to the end of the cruise. Great way to see the sights along the Danube.

The combo Danube River cruise and bus tour to the Melk Abbby was a perfect amount of time spent on each event. The tour guide had enough time built in to do a little exploring on your own.

Absolutely fantastic. Such a great experience to listen to professional musicians with the reverberations of the music within a domed cathedral.
