Excellent - really enjoyed and as it was quite chilly, we did not mind having the roof up. Very friendly 'driver'.
Meeting place was described as Heldenplatz (Heroes' Square) - a huge area beyond an archway (at the entrance to the Spanish Riding School), but our carriage was actually waiting in front of the archway.
Vienna Card is essential to get around the outlying attractions - Schonnbrun, Belvedere, etc. The carriage ride is a delight and the restaurant selected was centrally located, easy to find with pleasant staff and good food. Recommend.
the dinner was great, i loved the horse and carriage tour and having the vienna card was awesome it save us a lot of money in transportation and the belvedere palace is a beautiful museum
The Vienna card and all details were waiting at the hotel upon arrival which made things very easy for us. The horse and carriage tour was wonderful - to be driven through a truly beautiful city in a horse and carriage is not only romantic, but makes one feel special, which one likes to feel whilst on holiday. The Belvedere Palace is an art museum/gallery and was great to look through - especially to see the Gustav Klimt pieces. And then finally, the dinner was DELICIOUS! I have never tasted a desert as tasty as the Cardamom Panacotta desert that we had. Thoroughly enjoyable.
Everything in Vienna was wonderful except for the Restaurant Furich where the food was poor and the staff rude.
Tour was great. Vienna card good value. Candlelight dinner missed the free sparkling wine? Carriage was lovely. All the discounts did not help as they are either very small or when you get there you discover you need to book something in advance or something that is fully booked or you need to take the most expensive ticket like see 44 rooms. My legs would only last for 20 no matter the price!
Communication with the tour operator was poor, we really wanted some info on time of meal and despite emails and calls prior to departure I never got this. Consequently when turning up for the meal the restaurant 'fitted us in' we were unaware it was set menu and as we were outside no candlelight dinner! As it was for our 25th anniversary I was disappointed. The carriage ride was great, the vienna card useful, entrance to Belvedere good. The walking tour was set at a time we couldn't do which was disappointing. The restaurant meal was good but not what we expected. Overall more info given as I won't be celebrating this special day again!
