Great to get out of the city and see some of the surrounding countryside on a short break to Vienna. Guide was excellent and spoke English and Spanish fluently for the small number of guests in our party. Would have liked to spend a wee bit more time in Mayerling as there was a lot to read! Unfortunately, it started snowing when we were in Baden and our visit was cut shorter than usual as we were all frozen stiff, couldn’t take as many photos as I wanted due to my phone switching itself off with the cold. A young Korean exchange student in our party was fascinated by the snow, as she’d never seen it before! Definitely worth a visit, but perhaps in warmer month than February.

On July 7th, 21 we had a wonderful trip to the Vienna Woods. Our guide, Ms. Claudia Frank, told us a lot of interesting things about the Mayerling hunting lodge, the Heiligenkreuz monastery and the nice little town of Baden. But she also told us a lot of interesting things about the history of Vienna and Austria. She kindly and patiently answered all of our questions. We had a lot of fun and learned a lot of new things. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Claudia again for this beautiful tour and send our best regards.

The Abbey was wonderful a feeling of great fraternity and calm. Mayeling was a very sad place no birds singing although it was a sunny day. Tour manager was excellent and travel through the woods was wonderful.

Πολύ καλή εκδρομή σε πανέμορφα μέρη με ιστορία και θαυμάσιο τοπίο, Άριστη ξενάγηση και μεταφορά.

Fantastic half day excursion to three beautiful places near the capital.
