Well worth a visit for a day trip to Vienna from Prague. Get to see the palace and explore its many rooms with audio tape to listen to the information. Also you have free time at the end to explore and get something to eat and use the opportunity wisely and take couple pictures. Definitely value for money.

Our guide was excellent and our drivers were wonderful. One of the people on the tour did not bring her passport, so she was driven back to her hotel to collect it. The tour was very informative and had a relaxed atmosphere - we didn't feel pressured by time.

Vienna was absolutely beautiful. It's a very long day and there is not enough time to see everything there, but if you don't have the time to spend a whole day or two here then this tour is definitely worth taking. Everyone was so friendly and the buildings are stunning, you get 2 hours on your own time which is great, the food was delicious. I would love to come back here for longer.
