Vienna Mozart Concert at the Musikverein

Vienna, Austria

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

VIP Package that included dinner. This was an excellent evening, superb 5 course meal at the Restaurant Korso in the Hotel Bristol (you have to pay for any drinks). Followed by a delightful carriage ride around the inner city and then a most entertaining concert. A conductor with humour is necessary for the UK Proms and was equally appreciated for this concert. Soloists and orchestra of a good standard and the opportunity to meet with them at the interval added to the evening. The evening was only marred by the Hotel Bristol not having a booking for us for dinner; they were excellent and took my Viator booking and went away and sorted everything out. Subsequently a Mozart page turned up to escort us to the concert and provided tickets and the carriage ride.

Vienna Boys' Choir at The Musikverein

My Review

The excursion picked us up from our hotel; due to our previous experience on the 'Vienna evening Sightseeing cruise' we knew not to expect to be taken back to our hotels. It would have been nice for that to be confirmed, but it was not. Be aware the concert venue for the Vienna Boys (Musikverein) does not allow coats or rucksacks in the hall, however, a cloakroom (€1) is available. The performance was enjoyable and split between the Vienna Boys choir and an small orchestra, an enjoyable couple of hours.

Vienna Evening Sightseeing Cruise with Dinner

Vienna, Austria

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

This should never be called an evening sightseeing cruise, unless you call boating up the Vienna City canal as a cruise; we spent about a mile actually on the Danube. However, one item of interest was the working of the lock connecting the canal to the Danube. Dinner was a buffet, with enough for everyone, unless you were a vegetarian. We thought there might be some commentary on any sights we passed but none were forthcoming. Entertainment was very loud and of mixed quality. This was not a great excursion that had as its finale the unknown fact that we had to find our own way back to everyone's hotels. Although we were picked up from our hotels it would have been good to mention that transport back from where the boat tied up was at one's own responsibility. Lots of people milling around expected to be taken back to their hotels; fortunately when an officer of the boat was asked he immediately confirmed that transport was not arranged and pointed people at the nearest taxi rack.

The tour guide managed well a mixed group of English and German speaking tourists, switching between languages without a break. Tour was informative but very centrally sited within Vienna city.
