Our experience was very good, we're absolutely happy with service and emotions we had from a concert! On the first place, we got to Palace later, then we expected and the ladies first said that dinner is almost done and we won't get anything. I looked at my husband and understood if i won't feed him he's gonna eat me or one of tourists over there. So I kindly asked the lady on registration to get us in the restaurant, even though it was kinda late, but still 40 mins before the concert. She called the restaurant and we ran in there to get at least smth and we got it! People I mean the service were very nice and helpful. So full and ready for culture we proceed to our seats and enjoyed the concert. It was great! besides an orchestra they give you piece of Opera and Ballet, which is great and keeps your interest to what's going on on the stage to the very end. An advice is: take the better seats if possible. The contact is so much better when you see everything closer and impression is much more different! Try to come there not tired and prepared for art, leave all the problems behind the door and just enjoy the show! You won't regret of any spent cent.
Thanks everybody, you guys are a great team!
Can't say enough nice things about the serve we received and the food was excellent
The highlight of our 18 day Eastern Europe Holiday.
Dinner and concert were wonderful. Too bad to walk so far in the cold weather between restaurant and concert hall.
Tour is nice, dinner is good, amazing concert in the palace ball room. Amazing night. Highly recommended.
We loved everything about the dinner and concert. We were a bit late for the tour and would love to have spent more time there. One can spend hours and hours at the palace. We were very pleased with the meal and the concert.
This was a great way to see the palace, experience historic Vienna, and get a great meal and lovely concert. We went to the palace in the morning to pick up our tickets and take the tour, then headed back to our hotel to clean up for dinner and music. The food was absolutely delicious! We did one vegetarian and one regular, and both meals were wonderful, as were the staff at the restaurant. The concert was sort of a "best of" with shorter bits from classic music pieces most people would recognize. Our seats in the VIP section were amazing (although assigned seats might help as there was some drama in our box with a family that wanted to sit together despite the scattered remaining seats). The highlight was the conductor himself, who was just as entertaining as the musicians. At the end he encouraged audience participation, which was unexpected and super fun. These types of experiences are probably available all over town, but doing it at the palace was a great touch.
A great day for the entire family! The palace was amazing and our meal was great, my kids enjoyed it (age 10 and 13) and the concert was outstanding. A good variety and the performers were very good.
We really enjoyed the Schonbrunn Palace Evening. The tour was great and informative and the dinner was excellent. The concert topped it all off. Being from New York we were very impressed.
This was possibly the highlight of our 6 Viator trips. It the subway/metro in Vienna is very easy to negotiate so getting there was easy. The Palace and gardens are vast and you won't have time to see them all. The 40 room tour of the palace was very interesting but exhausting. Once you have seen one palace room you have seen them all!!! The gardens are relatively simple but great to walk about in.
We did the tour, evening dinner and concert combined. The evening dinner was very good and the chef/waiters managed to provide an excellent non dairy meal.
The highlight however has to be the concert with dances and singers. This variety of performances in teh Orangerie as the sun went down outside was spectacular. This trip is not to be missed.
This was really a wonderful experience. The palace is world famous. The tour was excellent. The food was really good. The concert was enjoyable and was in a setting that was built for an emperor. My only regret is that we did not allow enough time to go to the zoo and to wander the beautiful gardens more. This was special. Do no miss it!
Fabulous day. The palace is beautiful but only took 1-1/2 hours to see house and gardens. The dinner was very elegant and the food delicious. The concert was very entertaining. Splurge on VIP so your in first 2 rows. It's a bit hard to find ticket office but someone helped us, it's in the building.
Tour of Schonbrunn Palace was great, easily done in an hour with time to tour the gardens. Dinner was lovely and promptly ready at 1830! We had time to spare after the tour so enjoyed some wine on the outdoor patio of the cafe prior to dinner. Concert in the palace was brilliant! A great tour!
The tour of the castle and the gardens was lovely and informative. Dinner was delightful and service excellent. Enjoyed the concert. A great time was had by all.
The Palace was magnificent The tickets were ready when we got there.
The meal was wonderful and the concert was in the grand ballroom. We were overwhelmed by the vinue.

I highly recommend this because the palace is wonderful and the grounds beautiful even in a drizzle. The food is nothing to rave about although the strudle is superb. The concert was excellent with opera ballet/dance and orchestral parts. It is just a very nice experience and the people who attended were dressed nicely- some jackets and ties.
Palace was beautiful, although when booking it does not make it clear you have to do the tour earlier on in the day before the dinner and concert. Meal was fine. Very cute restaurant, but nothing extra-ordinary. Concert was lovely, even as far back as the C section.
The Palace tour was even better than I remembered. The meal very good, no choice on fixed menu, but they were happy to change something we didn't like. Concert was superb.
Excellent for the money, music was great, food adequate but you really go for the music and ambience.
So wonderful - the palace, the park, beautiful dinner and a concert in the ballroom. What else could you wish for?
Palace tour , dinner and the concert were all excellent value , the only minus were the rain showers whilst walking in the beautiful grounds !
