Guide was excellent, was a great intro to the Vienna. Highly recommend!
An interesting glimpse into a time when Vienna was one of the most powerful cities on the Earth. The summer home of the Hapsburgs is on a scale that you have to see to appreciate.
Good tour, but unnecessary run around before departure. The fact the guide runs the tour in 2 languages kind of make it feel like you get 1/2 a tour, and not much more than basic facts can be covered.
I was in Vienna for the first time and this was a very easy and efficient way to see the city. The lunch and Cafe Central break were both great and very tasty. You get discounts in a lot of different museums and it helps having all transport included.
Very well organised tour . Guide lady was perfect. Very knowledgable and did her job excellent. You have to see this historic place and everything before that that she was taking us to.
Excellent trip. Got to see all the important landmarks in Vienna and the tour was well organized. The Lady Guide really knows her stuff.
Excellent trip covering the main tourist attractions in Vienna. The tour of the Schonbrunn Palace and Gardens was enhanced by an excellent guide. My husband who is totally blind told the guide he had no need for sight as her descriptions we so descriptive. A day to be recommended.
It was nice to have the bus tour of the city, but the guided tour provided all the same information as the audio guides available at the Schonbrunn at no extra charge when you purchase a ticket. If you have limited time, this tour is nice because it allows you to tour the most impressive rooms. However, we ended up going back the next day and purchased a combination ticket for a full Schonbrunn Palace tour and access to the Sisi Museum.
another tour to see what the wealthy built.
Departed late at 10:10am. It was understandable as someone was in travel jam. However, the tour finished at about 12:45pm. So, not quite 3 hours. We only have half an hour free time to take photos at the Schonbrunn Palace. Why not make it longer instead of finishing early? The bus departed 12:30pm at the Palace. Because our kid needed to go to the toilet, we arrived 2-3 minutes late.....the bus has gone! Fortunately, we found another bus from the same company and the tour guide was willing to take us back to the city.
Schonbrunn is a must while in Vienna and it is so much easier to do it with a tour if you don't have a car during your visit. We really enjoyed the tour and its quick overview of the city and its history. Schonbrunn was lovely, though it would have been nice if we could have taken picture inside and if we'd had more than 20 minutes to explore the gardens since I had hoped to go to the maze.
The historical city tour of Vienna was informative and interesting. Schonbrunn Palace is huge and spectacular. There are 1,441 very ornate rooms of which you get to see a small but impressive number. On the way back, we had a short visit to Belvedere Palace.
Vienna is beautiful and there are lots to see. This tour provides a generalized overview of the city. The highlight is the Schonbrunn Palace - which is worth seeing. Driving through the city by coach gives a nice relaxed journey of seeing the city, but I think you will be better off walking and sightseeing at your own pace, because there is so much to see and this tour is really just too short to make you fully appreciate the beauty and history of Vienna.
On Viator's website, it stated that the tour will start at 9:45am. The tour was late and started around 10:10-10:15am. Viator also did not mention that the tour will be conducted in French and English at the same time by the guide. If the tour was conducted solely in English, the guide will have more time to explain and tell us more about the city. The tour was disorganized, and the tour guide, Tanya, was not friendly, clear and detailed in her explanations. She does not seemed interested at all and was just going through the routine. There was not enough time after the tour of the castle has ended to explore the grounds of the castle for a little. My family and I were disappointed with the quality of the tour and the tour guide. We will not recommend this tour to anyone.
Nice overview and very interesting palace tour.
