Danube Family Tour 7 Nights

Tour Description: Self-guided

This Danube Family Tour was designed especially for families. It offers shorter daily distances than the usual tour program, due in part to scheduled boat rides along the route on many days. Hotels are family friendly. You will spend one night at an original farm allowing children to assist in feeding the animals. During the tour, there is a two-night stay in an exclusive hotel with pool and spa in the beautiful Wachau valley. A ride on the famous Ferris wheel in Vienna's Prater is the highlight of this amazing bike trip.

The Danube Bicycle Path offers nearly carefree cycling and an ideal way to view the region. It's downstream all the way, passing through picturesque towns and villages and across lush farmland. It’s paved and almost traffic-free, following an old horse path where teams of horses once struggled to tow barges upstream. Along the majestic river, you pass romantic castles, cozy villages and sprawling vineyards. Unforgettable end of the tour is the Austrian capital, Vienna, with its countless sights.

You start in a deep valley with craggy outcroppings topped with the ruins of ancient castles. Soon, the hills turn to the rolling vineyards of the Wachau region, dotted with medieval towns. As the river widens, flat pastures spread to the horizons, and you meander through farms and villages. From time to time you cross the river, over dams, locks and bridges and sometimes in small ferries especially for cyclists.

You receive a detailed route map with sightseeing suggestions, and your program will include hotels along the way (with breakfast). Each morning, you leave your luggage at the hotel, and the tour operator transfers it to your next hotel. You have a phone number for service and emergency support along the way.
