We did the private tour to Melk, Hallstatt and Salzburg on Christmas day and although it rained, it snowed and it was cold it was wonderful. The driver who was a guide was very kind and friendly, I would give him a ten. Without a doubt, I recommend this private tour to everyone.

Great day out in the valley. Excellent guide (Marco) with lots of knowledge. Went to the Melk Abbey, two wineries and explored the town Dürnstein and a lovely meal in a traditional restaurant. Thanks Explore Vienna!

A nice excursion with a charming guide - everything was great. It's just a shame that the boat trip didn't take place.
