Lower Austria is the cradle of Austrian viticulture, and this private wine tasting tour is your chance to visit the area's beautiful forests and vineyards of the Thermal Region, just south of Vienna. Take a 30-minute train ride to the heart of the Vienna Woods for a wine-filled day. Summer (April-October) Your summer tour will begin with a hike in the spa town of Baden, which was once a favorite country retreat of Beethoven. From there you will walk along forest trails towards a magnificent elevated viewpoint overlooking the Vienna Basin in all directions. This spot alone is a photographer's dream.

As a reward, you'll take a break among the vines for an open-air wine tasting at a local producer.

This is an AMAZING tour, they are serious about no more than 8 people, the day that we went there were 2 groups one of 4 and one of 5, many other companies would have just run the 1 tour. The transport was super comfortable and water was cold and plentiful. Rui our guide was super knowledgeable and personable and let our curiosity and interests lead the conversation whilst still giving us all the great historical facts.

Must do activity while in Austria! Thank you to our guide, Josef, for his service. I appreciate the tour operator as well for doing this tour, though there was only two passengers. You guys are the best!
