This was a superb trip. Charles our guide was very informative and kind. The bus was clean and got us to and from our destination on time. The boat ride was fun and the food on the boat was better than expected. We arrived in Melk an hour before our tour so I was able to walk around. The Abbey is exquisite and I am so glad I took the day and make this special journey. Definitely eat on the boat so you have time to walk around Melk. Also there is no bathroom on the bus but a stop was made at a cute town. This day trip is a great time and value.

Yolo was great! Yes that is his name! He was very informative from the start of the tour. He even changed the pick up location the day before in concern of protestors the day of the tour. Yolo loves the Wachua Valley as they do him. Knows his way around the valley and the really good wines. Great tour!
