Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2013

EVERYTHING WENT AS PLANNED AND WE ARE VERY HAPPY...PICK UPS WERE IN TIME...HOTELS WERE VERY GOOD.

4 star rating: Recommended October 2014

We were pleased with this. We felt it was a good value. It included two small tours: Vienna and Salzburg. We then booked other smaller tours in each of these cities (some through Viator, some on our own and some through our hotel)). I would call this more a 'package' that includes transportation, lodging and the two small tours. However, the convenience of Viator taking care of the details and the value of what was provided made it worthwhile. Would consider this arrangement again and recommend it - especially to new travelers
