Witness the charm of the Wachau Valley and go where big buses can’t take you!

The Danube Valley between Krems and Melk—known as the Wachau—is as scenic and romantic as Austria gets: famous white wines … ruined castles … charming old towns surrounded by steep vineyards … and last but not least, the glorious Melk Abbey. On our day trip we cover the most scenic 24 miles of the Wachau Valley while visiting exclusive wineries.  Later we’ll end the day with a boat cruise on the Danube and a brief stop at Melk Abbey for photos. On this spectacular day trip, you’ll fall in love with Austria’s wines and the country’s stunning scenery.   Make this small-group tour the highlight of your travels!
