Return Details

1090 Vienna, Austria
Greet your guide at the Vienna Explorer tour office on Franz Josefs Kai and make your way to a local metro station. From here, you’ll take the metro to a train station and board a train destined for the Wachau Valley — a luscious region replete with vineyards, wineries and quaint villages.

On arrival in the valley, collect your modern bikes and listen to a short safety briefing. The gentle, 15-mile (24-km) route is comprised primarily of cycle paths and quiet roads, ensuring you’ll feel safe and secure throughout.

Pedal beside the picturesque Danube River and feast your senses on stunning scenery before stopping at your first winery to sample the local bounty. During each tasting, a wine expert will detail the production processes and subtle tastes of each wine.

Midway through the day, you’ll stop in the charming village of Dürnstein to explore during free time. Opt to ascend to the ruins of a fortress used to incarcerate King Richard the Lionhear or simply relax on the beach beside the Danube. Swimming is optional so bring along a towel and bathing suit if you’d like to dip in the Danube.

After lunch in a local tavern, continue cycling to your final winery before returning to the train station for the transfer back to Vienna.

Fun, easy and interesting.

Tomas was a really good tour guide with the personal touch. In for a chat and had answers on every question. The biking part was not hard at all and because our big group was doing so well in cycling, there was even enough space in the planning for a dive in the Donau if you wanted to! I recommend this tour to everyone who likes wines and a bit of a exercise.

Biking and wine tasting

Biking through the area with vineyards and walking through the small towns. Iolo was an excellent guide. I think the maximum should be about 10 or 12. I believe we had 15-17 and that size slowed us down. The wine tasting was excellent and enjoyed the variety. The day will be very memorable!

Riding through lovely small towns and wonderful landscape
Cosmin

We rode through lovely small towns and wonderful landscapes; and everybody loved the wines. The views from the Dürnstein castle definitely make the hike worth it. Overall a great day out. Iolo, our guide, was very informative, cheerful and very patient. And the pace he set for the tour was just perfect. Next time we'll be in Austria we'll definitely check for another tour with him.

Overall a Great trip . It was a good experience to see life outside of the city of vienna . Fab selection of wines to try and informative. The bike riding was an enjoyable smooth pace and at no point did we feel rushed . Fairly priced and friendly tour guide . Very impressed by the company allowing the trip to go ahead with less people than usual - otherwise we would of missed out .

Perfect Wachau Wine Tasting Bike Ride

Plush vineyards and blue skies as far as your eyes can see. Good stops in between to taste wine at Domane & Mang Families Vineyards. The bicycle ride along the serene Danube from Krems was just the most ecstatic and easy bicycle ride ever.
