What people are saying about Krems an der Donau

Little bit of a trek from Simmering station through a less salubrious area of Vienna (thought we'd got lost) but thankfully Google maps directed us to find the stables. Our host was very knowledgeable and talked through the bloodlines of the horses, the regulation surrounding the carriages horses and the horses welfare. We then had a lovely long carriage ride into the city. we didn't see many of the sights and the carriage driver didn't explain/talk through the journey.

Durnstein, Melk abbey was so good. However, the Donau river cruise was a bit boring. It would be better if a little more time was spent on the Durnstein.

The trip was great, especially with elder people. The bus and boat were great for them.

Great guide, comfortable bus, very nice boat, well organized tour

The day trip to Wachau Valley and Melk Abbey was very enjoyable.
