What You Can Expect

Vienna Sightseeing Day Trip from Prague

Day Trip to Vienna

Your day trip to Vienna begins as you depart Prague and take a comfortable coach ride south through the stunning landscapes of Bohemia and Moravia. After three to four hours of driving along Danube, Europe's longest river, arrive in Vienna, the home of Sigmund Freud.

Vienna, the seat of the Habsburg Empire during the 18th century, is a beautiful medieval and Baroque city and its historic center is UNESCO World Heritage listed.

With your guide, travel across the famous Ringstrasse, a magnificent boulevard that Emperor Franz Joseph built in the 1880s on the site of demolished city walls. Along the way, see Vienna’s majestic buildings, palaces and museums, including Schwarzenberg Square, the State Opera, Neue Burg (a part of the Hofburg), the building of Parliament and the History Museum. Pass beautiful public gardens and parks, enjoy panoramic views of the city, and listen as your guide tells you about the historical importance of each site.

Next, head to Vienna´s southern border, where you can view Schönbrunn (the former summer residence of the imperial family) and its beautiful reservoir. After exploring the gardens and chateau on your own, you will return by bus to the center of the city for a tour of the Hofburg, the former imperial residence of Vienna. Then, take a guided tour of St Stephen´s Cathedral.

After your guided tour, enjoy free time for lunch or shopping before enjoying a relaxing journey back to Prague.

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.

This was an extremely enjoyable day.
Our guide Eva was extremely informative and helpful and Peter's driving allowed us to relax easily throughout.
We very much appreciated the spaciousness in the people carrier as it was long journey but we were very comfortable indeed.
I think the balance between visiting the palace and the time we had in town was just right and it has certainly given us the desire to go back and visit Vienna for longer at a future date.

This tour was the highlight of my sister's and my trip. It turned out there were only 3 of us, having met up with another Canadian, with our guide Alice and driver Fabrizio. What a treat. As it was a small group we quickly agreed to let Alice personalize the tour to allow us more time in Vienna, and Fabrizio was more than willing to take us anywhere. Alice is passionate about history and her enthusiasm was contagious. What a treat to visit a medieval town under a full moon on the way home. It was a very long day but provided memories for a lifetime. While I give this tour 5 stars, if you're fortunate enough to be with Alice and Fabrizio, it would be worth ten!

The tour was great! There were only four people including myself and we got very special attention. Our tour guide Alice was enthusiastic and very friendly and showed us everything we wanted to see and more.Alice is very knowledgeable about all the historical information and made the trip lots of fun. Our driver John was great and very willing to stop wherever we wanted. I had been to Vienna before but my niece had never been there. Based on our great experience, we both want to return. Thanks for the great memories.
