    It was a lovely tour but it felt a bit rush as there was a lot to see. We had a nice time though.

    This is a big bus tour but everything was organized and even the short walks in the snow was enjoyable. The tour guide gave a lot of excellent information about the history. I'm glad they were able to offer a tour to the countryside even in the winter.

    I think this is a good tour but wasn't a great tour for me. I guess I was looking for more scenic areas with equal focus on history. I think without the boat ride it wasn't really seeing Vienna Woods. The bus is so quick that you can't really enjoy the scenery and on a boat you could probably appreicate it more and take pictures. We zoomed by a lot of scenery. I've been on other tours where they would take you to lookout or stop and let you take shots of the scenery. I just felt a little misled and this was just a historic tour. I love history and it was nice to see the Abbey I just wanted equal time in Vienna Woods and have more time to take pictures. However, the Seegrotte was very unique and a nice break from the churches.
