Very happy with this tour - prompt hotel pickup, knowledgeable tour guide and good content - Thanks!
We were picked up from our hotel on time, taken to the tour bus (French/English-speaking tour guide) and set off for a very interesting and comprehensive tour of Vienna. The visit to Schonbrunn (with time to stroll around the Christmas market) was the highlight, and not having to queue for tickets was great. Our tour guide was well-organised, informative and clear and this tour was the ideal start to our first visit to Vienna. It orientated us, gave us a good idea of what we would like to explore further in the limited time (2.5 days) we had left and we would recommend it to anyone as a great introduction to this fascinating city with its stunning architecture and almost overwhelming choice of attractions to visit.
This package is perfect for 1 reason, it has everything that you need. Firstly it was very convenient to get it from our hotel once we arrived. It was very easy to use and had clear instructions, all the basics you need for a stay in Vienna! The hot chocolate (swapped for the coffee) and cake experience at Cafe Central was unforgettable. The restaurant where we had our lunch was really good and centrally located, they had the best apple strudel I had tried whilst in Vienna! So convenient to use the transport as much as you want too, and the Vienna Card to entry the attractions and get some helpful discounts too which is always great. Plus the hop on hop off tour insured we got to see everything and very comfortably, highly recommended!
Very nice tour and palace is beautiful. There was even time to have coffee and cake (not included).
If you are looking for a quick city overview and palace visit, this is perfect. If you want something more, keep looking. The free time after the visit to the palace is very short, so if it's during the summer and want to spend time in the gardens, I'd stay at the palace and take the subway back. Since it was cold, I took the bus back to the opera and was able to join the 2 pm tour.
yes helpful and interesting
The problem was NOT Viator, but the local company. They put us on an German only speaking tour -- so the city tour was a waste of time. We told the guide that we didn't speak German and that our voucher clearly stated -- that we gave her and she looked at -- that it was supposed to be an English speaking tour. When we arrived at Schonbrunn they put us with the correct group. She acted irritated and angry with us even though she was the one who said that this was our bus.
30 min late pick up from hotel:(. Guide spoke two languages: French and English to accommodate the group which was supposed to be English speaking only so half the time we had to wait for guide to translate. Very superficial information was provided on history of Vienna. Was a waste of money and time
It is ok if you want to ride quickly past certain buildings and spend a very short time in Schonbrunn Palace without time for the gardens. I think a hop-on-hop-off is much better . Value for the money = not good!
The meeting point is very badly marked. Almost missed the tour.
The tour gaild was not helpful.
You can do the tour by youself.
The tour was good and well organised. The bus was modern and in good condition, and the guide was good. Only one draw back was we had a group of about 35 who booked an English tour, however there were 2 persons who could only speak French, the the guidance was 50% English and 50% French which meant we did not get a full commentary, because half the time was taken up with French commentary. They should have organised better than that. But overall we enjoyed the places visited and the content.
The tour was interesting and the tour operator did a pretty good job of handling all the necessary arrangements.
Got off to a rather slow start as we had to take a shuttle bus to the main bus station to join up with the main buses including others who were doing other trips. Guide was very knowledgeable and spoke good English. Good experience as an introduction to the city. Schonbrunn is spectacular!
