The tour was great. Nice ride on the boat. Didn't realize that to get to the other part would have so much walking. That was hard on us. The views were amazing.

My husband and I loved the Vienna sightseeing tour with a Danube boat ride during our brief stay at such beautiful and historical city in Germany.Our palace guide was very knowledgeable and detailed-oriented person. We must say that we almost missed the whole tour altogether...It was the courtesy of a Vienesse young man who was able to call a taxi to drive us directly to the bus station who saved our tour. Danke Gundel...wherever you are... And what a tour that was: Fantastic!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

This was a really enjoyable tour. We were collected from our hotel at the specified time, the coach tour had a knowledgeable guide and we saw lots of landmarks. We really enjoyed the relaxing sail on the Danube into the city and it ended at a convenient central point. Ideal for first time visitors, especially if your time is short and you want to see a lot. Highly recommended.

The city tour and the Danube Boat ride was just amazing. Very comfortable ride, an excellent crew and staff, nice cafe and patisserie.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2013

If you are looking for an introductory tour of Vienna, this is a good choice! I didn't really know what to expect but I was glad that we saw some sites that are a little harder to get to on your own. Hundertwasserhaus , Beethoven's house, the Vienna Woods, etc. are all not that easy to get to if you only have a few days in the city and were some of my favorites from the tour. The cruise was unlike any cruise I've ever been on because we went through the Danube canal at one point and had to wait for the water to even out and for the canal to open. This was really cool and allowed us to see really beautiful sites of Vienna. The drive to the Vienna Woods was a good end to the day since the scenery was so nice and we got a panoramic view of the entire city once we got to the top.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2013

It is a very good tour, started with the sightseeing on all the major sites and then went to the pier to board the boat. We enjoyed it and would recommend this tour.
