Mayerling is known as the Austrian Romeo and Juliet. The Heiligenkreuz church is so beautiful that the pope visited it himself. The Seegrotte is a great underground boat ride and its significance to WWII was very interesting. The stop there for lunch included lots of varied foods and was a great change of pace from crowded streets and restaurants in Vienna.

This tour was amazing, the tour operators were so well organized and the full trip was well planned. The pick up from the hotel was on time, 45 minutes before tour starting time. Vienna woods was very beautiful, Mayerling was so quite with green lushy surroundings. To conclude a very cool boat ride.
