Salzburg Day Trip from Vienna

Vienna, Austria

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The trip itself, and the guide, were excellent. Needless to say it meant a very early start. We were told to arrive at the Vienna State Opera by 6.45am. Travel to there took 30 minutes so there was no chance of breakfast at the hotel. The previous evening I mentioned this to the hotel receptionist who said he's never known people have to make their own way to the assembly point. Guests were invariably picked-up from the hotel. The receptionist made a phone call and arranged transport for us. My wife and I were very grateful but disappointed this arrangement needed to be made for us by the hotel.

Vienna's Schonbrunn Zoo and Giant Ferris Wheel

Vienna, Austria

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

An excellent combination. The zoo is extensive so at least half a day is needed. The journey from the zoo to the ferris wheel is easy by metro but including walking to and from the stations you need to allow 45 minutes. Before the ride (which gives excellent views of the city) there's a very interesting exhibition.

Schonbrunn Palace Evening: Palace Tour, Dinner and Concert

Vienna, Austria

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The description of where to exchange vouchers for tickets could have been better, especially when it had to be found in a snow blizzard! No matter what time of the year you visit, there is a significant period of time from when the Palace closes until the meal. It would be easy to fill this time strolling the grounds, but only if the weather permits. But in freezing temperatures and snow this wasn't an option so we returned to our hotel for a while (and to warm up!) We couldn't find anywhere indoors and nearby worth visiting to fill the time. However, the self-guided tour which lasts nearly two hours was excellent with a really helpful commentary. This needs to be done no later than mid-afternoon. The meal was very good and the concert of Mozart and Strauss music was first class. Professional musicians (six of them), two dancers and two amazing singers. In the concert we had booked A category seats and we were three rows from the front. It was worth paying extra for this. Overall, the package was well worth it.
