Excellent overall experience

We took the tour with the winter schedule. Thay is, instead of taking the boat ride, we visited a couple of towns by bus, had lunch in one of them and visited the Melk Abbey.
The trip was nice and we liked the guide. However we are giving 2 stars because we felt it was not worth paying almost 80 euros for the tour.
The towns were ok, but nothing super special. Lunch was pretty poor: soup, chicken with rice and dessert.
In summertime, the boat trip may be worth it.

The stop at Durnstein was very interesting.
The highlight was the crise on thé Danube but it was not easy to have lunch on the boat. The guide at Melk was very good

We felt disappointed bg the bus compoent, when fellow travellers who spoke a different language constantly talked over the commentary, so much so that we used headphones on the return to Vienna to stop this. Having visited similar small towns in Austria and Germany, we got little out of the stop in Durnstein, time that would have been better spent on the tour boat. The visit to the Melk Abbey was good, but again, further explanation would have been useful as we only stumbled on being able to visit other parts of the complex before our tour commenced. Finally, it is disrepectful by others to turn up late to the bus when we all made it there well before we had to, sitting and waiting for them. The rule should be, like catching any other form of public transportation, that if you're late, you miss it!
