A Recent Review of this tour

The Wachau Valley tour was abosoutely beautiful. We went before all the flowers bloomed, so I am certain that it will be even more beautiful in April/May. Our guide was so knowledgeable and amazing. She ended our tour there with a private wine tasting at a huge winery in Krems. We loved every minute of this tour. We went to the Abby at Melk and had a wonderful lunch as well. The little towns along the way were like a storybook fantasy. Katherina was so great. A wonderful person and a true native!
