What people are saying about Lower Austria

Great experience. So many things to visit and see, my tour was in 3 languages so a bit hard to follow, but probably during non corona times they would have more busses because there wouls be more tourists. The guide was amazing at switching between all 3 languages, italian, german and english, Ican only imagine how difficult it was for him. The danube boat rode was great and relaxing there are plenty of castles to see and the views are great. Best to eat on the boat, I think you can even eat your own food, so you will have time yo visit the city afterwards, otherwise if you eat at the restaurant you will not have time to visit the city and it is absolutely gorgeous, you must.

An amazing day from start to finish! You don't need to be a lover of wine to enjoy this execurison. It's intimate, due to small group, filled with visits to several attractions along the valley.
