Fun way to experience the local culture.

29 Sep 2021


This was our first barge/bike experience. The barge accommodations were lovely and the meals provided a nice variety and were presented nicely. Coming from previous cruise experiences we were disappointed not to have at least coffee/tea available 24/7. We also were disappointed to be charged for water at dinner. After the first charge we avoided it on future dinners by bringing a water bottle to the table. The briefing for the bike routes were presented in English as well as German. I suggest the tour director make a point to remind guests about the navigation app that we have loaded on phones. We got lost on the last day and almost missed the departing boat. We totally forgot about the app and just by luck and our instincts we made it back in time. The route that included the visit to Melk needs better instructions for leaving Melk; many were confused. The bikes were in excellent condition and well supplied with the pack bag and repair kit that held our daily maps. One recommendation is to demonstrate to riders how to use the repair kit if needed. We would have had no idea if we had a flat tire! Overall we enjoyed the experience and would do it again and will recommend this one to friends.
