A fabulous tour away from the city rush.

Reviewed by: IronHorse, September 2016

Fascinating travel through the Austrian countryside via weaving roads through deep forests and open country. Guided tour of the Abbey was both very informative and remarkable, the visit to the royal's hunting lodge made you think of the dramas of the past are no different from today's, and capping the tour with the Seegrotte's subterranean boat ride was both intriguing and exciting. Very happy to have taken this tour!!!!
