8h tour in the Unesco World Heritage region

The Wachau is one of the most beautiful regions in Austria. Its charm is so picturesque that it was declared a UNESCO World heritage site.
Our tour will start out in your hotel and we will set out in a comfortable minivan to the Wachau region. We will be driven by a professional driver and a nice minivan.
Our first stop will be the quaint medival city of Krems.
After a nice ride along the vineyards we will arrive at the very charming village of Dürnstein, where we can have a little winetasting.
At the village of Spitz its time to board our boat where we can have lunch while enjoying the magnificent view of the ravines.
Our highlight of the tour will be the beautiful Baroque Melk Abbey. Its quite breathtaking!
If time permits we will see the traditional Austrian Baroque village of Melk.

The tour will conclude in your hotel.

A Recent Review of this tour

Susanne was one of the best tour guides we have EVER had! One of the best things about Susanne is that she communicated via email with me from our first signing up for the tour through the day before the tour. She really wanted to cater the tour to our interests. She was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the Wachau Valley and all the sights within. She was punctual and very organized. She has a warm personality and we feel that she is an extreme asset to ToursByLocals!
