Altough the experience of collecting the voucher and the tickets, wasn't so simple as expected, since we had to go to one location to collect the voucher, and then, need to go to another location to convert the voucher in tickets to enter in the tour, apart from that, everything went perfectly.
Brilliant evening far exceeded our expectations. The meal was excellent as was the service and the concert itself was superb with some surprises I might add. Would thoroughly recommend , it has been the highlight of our stay in Vienna.
Wonderful experience, enjoyed tour of the palace, wonderful dinner not sure about the semolina dumplings though followed by fantastic concert which was held on this night within the Palace.
I thought it might be somewhat mediocre but the musicians were very good. I could have done without the ballet dancers but the Russian soprano was very good. Lots of large tour groups present . If possible, don't take a wrap as the coat storage fee is one euro per item and is mandatory for most people in the audience.
Very pleasant dinner and wonderful performance.
Food very good and restaurant and staff excellent. Concert was superb. Tickets for meal and concert have to be picked up at Orangery office with online voucher prior to dinner. This had not been explained on the voucher. Not a major inconvenience as office opposite Underground exit.
Doing what: Schonbrunn Palace Evening: Dinner and Concert
We enjoyed every minute of this trip. In fact we wished that we arrived earlier to Schoenbrunn Palace as there is so much to see. The gardens are absolutely beautiful.
The food was very nice, we were all a little worried as to what the set meal would be but it ended up being lovely Beef Consomme for Starter, Braised Beef and Potato Pie in a shallot gravy for Main and a Chocolate and Orange mousse for Desert. and was served in the Palace restaurant.
The opera was held in the Orangerie and again was lovely, we wished it would of lasted a little longer we were enjoying it that much.
I would highly recommend this trip.
It was very nice! the show and the singers where great and the meal was pretty good as well!
I would recommend it! as a plus, it was across the street from our Hotel, the Intercontinental
An enjoyable excursion but not sure I and #39;d recommend it. Personally I and #39;d book things separately if returning. Schonbrunn Palace was amazing but needed more time than made aware of. The meal wasn and #39;t great and a lengthy walk to the concert which was very good but seating not ideal if you are short!

We bought many Viator excursions and this one was not good at all. We really felt like we were tourists and not treated to an authentic experience. Dinner was not very good: roast beef with thick salty sauce, served in this room again set up for a quick turn around. Then we were moved to the palace to have our concert in this spectacular room. When we arrive there, we must buy the program for 5 Euros I just want to know what will be played - I don't want to buy a program!! and they want to sell us made in China toy/souvenir violins and other trinkets. I felt trapped. The concert barely lasted one hour. We went to see other concerts organised by Viator in Salzburg that were spectacular. This one was a tourist trap. Don't go there. Go to St. Charles Church or the Opera for real and authentic Austrian music.
The Schonbrunn Palace was easy access by train. The Christmas markets were in front of the palace, which filled in the time after our palace tour until our dinner. The dinner was enjoyable, then we made our way back down to the concert venue, across from the train station. Beautiful night in Vienna!
We had a wonderful time,everyone was so helpful and kind.People could not do enough for us.We would love to come back one day.
A highlight of the trip, to hear the music where it all originated!
The concert was excellent. The meal was good but did not allow for egg allergies. All deserts were egg laden - and no alternative such as a cup of coffee was offered. Staff helpful.
Loved the Palace, especially the gardens. A must see. I spent 3 hours exploring. Easter Market was available outside. Lots of walking. Dinner was good. The concert was great. Very talented people. Small venue - all tickets are great. Ticket office is in the Orngerie not public ticket office.
good food and concert totally enjoyed the palace.
once we worked out where to collect our tickets all went well. The Palace and garden were lovely, even though they were conducting their off season cleaning. Dinner was great, the staff very friendly. the concert was very good and we enjoyed ourselves immensley.
Tour was interesting. Concert was charming and really allowed us to soak up the atmosphere that makes up the real feel of Vienna.
Dinner was to be served in a soulless 3 Star hotel well away from the Palace and this was extremely disappointing. Completely destroyed the atmosphere that have been created so far.
So much so we declined to eat there and made our own arrangements.
The tour was not worthing. The price was too high for what was delivered. I couldn and #39;t do the audio tour as the palace closed quite in advance of dinner begining. The places were distant from one another. The dinner was in a place and then the concert far from it. The dinner was not fresh
Truly terrible and a waste of money. The venue looked like it was set for bus tours with the food to match. The musical performers were so bad that even an amateur could spot the multiple mistakes in the sugary selection of music. So bad was the concert which bears no resemblance to the photos on the internet that a group of us rushed to the cloak room at interval - to leave. For a city that prides itself on its musical prowess this was a disgrace.
The tours are excellent, however I was disappointed that I received no correspondence regarding 10 per cent discount. 5 stars

Well worth it! The palace and gardens were beautiful, the dinner was quite good, and the concert was delightful. Because the city center isn't far, would recommend visiting the palace in the morning less crowded, then sightseeing for a few hours around the city, before returning for dinner and the concert. Otherwise, you will have an hour or more of downtime between when the palace closes and when dinner begins, and there isn't much to see in the immediate area.
