What people are saying about Lower Austria

We did the river cruise from Krems to Melk and everything was great. The view was really beautiful with all the vineyards of the Wachau, the service was excellent and the food really delicious. The captain of the ship lent himself to take a photo with my 3 year old son who was super excited; I really appreciated this. And most of all, I am very grateful to the staff of get your guide who helped me change my ticket from one day to the next without making me pay any penalty. The whats up service works very well.
