Wachau valley minus Melk abbey

I shall be in Vienna this September. I want to do a day trip to the Wachau valley without Melk abbey. I find all the combi tickets include entry fee to the Abbey. I am not terribly interested in abbeys. Is there a inexpensive way I can see Wachau (say by using the Tageskarte Wachau) minus the Melk abbey? The Einfach raus ticket can be used only after 9 am; is there a way of travelling earlier at much the same price? I want to include Durnstein in my itinerary. I find the W1 and other bus lines run fairly infrequently, I do not know how much time I shall need in Durnstein (including the castle) before I catch the next W1 bus that comes along. If taking separate tickets does not save me significant money (compared to the combi ticket), I am willing to take the combi ticket but want to stop at Durnstein. Am I allowed to do that on the combi ticket, that is to say, is the return Krems-Vienna train ticket valid at any time on the combi ticket? How long will it take me to walk from Durnstein to Krems railway station (is it walkable in the first place) or else how do I reach Krems railway station from Durnstein? Sorry for the torrent of questions.
