It was the birthday of my sister and we decided to celebrate with a 60 min tour around Vienna in a electro vintage car with a sparkling wine. Manuel was our driver who was an excellent positive, passionate, enthusiastic guy showing us around all time about history and any details about buildings, churches, famous caffes anything around, also being ready anytime to stop and to take pictures of us. It was a great experience visiting Vienna in a manner of going back in time.

Great to get out of Vienna and see/learn about grapes, wine, the Danube River, and Wachau Valley. For me the tour was much more than the wine. The lunch under walnut trees was great. I think the two-hour "cruise" on the Danube was fine too. It was soo relaxing sitting in the sun on the top deck I soon fell asleep!! I wish we could have gone into the abbey at Melk.

Yolo was great! Yes that is his name! He was very informative from the start of the tour. He even changed the pick up location the day before in concern of protestors the day of the tour. Yolo loves the Wachua Valley as they do him. Knows his way around the valley and the really good wines. Great tour!

This was an amazing tour! Definitely wear athletic clothes and be prepared to bike a ways, but it's totally manageable for the average person. Highly recommend going in the fall if possible, the colors were gorgeous!

Great experience seeing the sights of Vienna from the car.
