Horst was one of our European tour highlights. He was very enter naming, informative, and had a lot of little known facts. The ride was excellent and we were able to see a lot in the time. Highly recommend as a way to see Vienna.
My husband and I did both the morning and afternoon rides. Although completely different tours, they were both wonderful. We learned so much about Vienna.
The cycle tour was a great way to see the highlights of central Vienna. I certainly recommend the tour but I would make the following 2 points which seem to appear on other reviews:
1. Some participants still went to the wrong corner of the Opera house, the tour waited for them and caused everybody to lose 30 minutes of the tour.
2. Initially we were told that 2 guides would take us but at the last minute only one guide looked after 15 people (mostly German) so the commentary was then predominantly in German and there was no translation of the answers given the time shortage.
I booked this tour believing that it had a lot of potential, but I was seriously disappointed with the outcome. While the tour visits many of Vienna's must see destinations, the guide is useless unless you speak German. I would have liked the option for an English only tour as I spent most of the tour waiting for the guide to translate from German to English, for which she barely gave the English speaking minority a second thought. All I can say is that this tour was a disappointing way to spend my €'s.
This is a great way to see the sights and get the history. The guide (Ola) was fantastic. She was very knowledgable and made sure everyone was safe.
An interesting look at Vienna beyond the central tourist area. Enthusiastic guide.
Although rain was predicted, the manager was early and the tour guide too. Fortunately for us the rain had put off the other cyclists booked so we had the tour guide all to ourselves to show us some off the beaten track interests. He was so knowledgeable and pleasant and would recommend this tour to anyone.
Excellent! Highly recommend. I will try and find a bike tour everywhere I go!
The tour was first class. Good guide. Interesting route. A great way to find out about Vienna and it's history. Most enjoyable.
This was a great 3 hour tour--a great way to see the major sights of the Ringstrasse--lots of good information, opportunity for photos and just a fun way to get around. Our English speaking guide was fantastic!
Rather severe guide. Made you feel uncomfortable about asking any questions but great trip and would certainly recommend.
The bike tour was lots of fun and a great way to see Vienna. Yes this was a guided bike tour but I didn't think that there was a lot of information shared about the city. Good tour if you want to see the green and leafy spots of Vienna, the beautiful Danube Island etc, the amusement park etc etc. If you are wanting to know the history etc than this is probably not the tour for you, try the other bike tour perhaps.
The bike tour was too crowded with too many people. We therefore wasted a lot of time waiting between stop lights for the entire group to cross over. Also, the guide did not give much information except broad, obvious facts. I would not recommend this tour at all.

The tour was fantastic, the young guide was extremely friendly.
The tour opened our eyes to the beauty of Vienna that we otherwise could have missed.
Outstanding. Our guide was friendly and knowledgable, and her pace was perfect. Going outside the city center was a treat. We could not have enjoyed it more.
