Traveling by public transport, admire Vienna from the top of the Nussberg, and enjoy a delicious wine with dinner.

Hike the most accessible parts of the Vienna Woods (Wienerwald) on the "house mountains" of Kahlenberg and Leopoldsberg, visible from many parts of the city and both within the administrative boundaries of Vienna. After you’ve met your hiking guide, walk a rather steep but paved footpath until you reach the top of Leopoldsberg, from where you'll have panoramic views over Vienna and the majestic Klosterneuburg Monastery. Continue on a comfortable path through the forest to Kahlenberg hill, before a hilly descent among hillside vineyards to end at Grinzing, Vienna's best-known wine village, lined with rustic restaurants. Go to Heuriger, where the wine owners of the region sell their wine, and purchase a bottle or two to enjoy later!

Our guide Marieta made this tour so special for us. My wife and I love having authentic experiences in the countries we are in—and this was that. It’s a private tour. Marieta met us outside our place and we took the metro to the bus to the walking path. Amazingly gorgeous scenery, so close to Vienna. You would be missing out on a true Wien experience if you miss the nearby wine country. We had lunch in Grinzig. Loved being out of the city. Marieta is a wealth of information and so kind. Absolutely recommend her and this tour.
Good guide who stopped at several places on the trip and told about buildings and the history of Austria. We were also allowed to provide that gas on several different stretches on the trip. We had an English language guide. Only small minus was that a snack should be included, but it did not.
We had a fabulous afternoon exploring the green areas of Vienna riding our fat ebikes... this is a great activity for anyone who can ride a bike comfortably.
Evoke was fabulous. Some exercise but not exhausting. Very beautiful greenscape tour ofVienna.
Very nice tour with enough variety and a very good guide.
