Not the best of tours. You would be better off booking the Danube boat ride directly and missing the bit before this. The guide was supposed to direct people from the boat towards the underground at the end of the tour but she was nowhere to be seen at the end.
We found this tour company to be constantly running late. On this particular tour we had a late departure and were rushing through barely getting a glimpse (if at all) of the sights. Not only that, but the tour was multi-lingual. The guide said only three languages, but he did not control the time and by the time he may have reached your language the sight had been long gone (maybe the rushing element since we were late). Again, we took three tours with this company and it was always late!
First half, a coach ride to the boat (2 hours to cover a very short distance) very poor - microphone in coach did not work so we were parked up in 36 degree heat, with no explanation of delay. We were then taken to a patch of rough playing field while the guide explained a bit about the history of the area. Back to the coach and a new coach was provided but no apology for delay, which led to one stop off being cancelled. I appreciate things do go wrong but an explanation and apology would have been appropriate. Boat trip itself was crowded (as I would expect in August) but tannoy not loud enough over noise of screaming children, etc., so could not hear commentary. The countryside on that stretch of the Danube was not particularly interesting, there were few buildings of note and 20 minutes of the 80 minute ride was spent sitting in a lock, going no-where (unless you count the water level dropping!). Additionally, the company did not tell us until after the tour had started where we would be dropped off, which turned out to be a considerable walk back to the starting point - in exceptionally hot weather. So, no, can't recommend this trip.
NO STARS This tour was awful!!!! we were the only english speaking couple so the guide spoke very little english we went to a place in the vienna woods for 25-30minutes with nothing to do and guide wasn't around, never saw the opera house and the tour was an hour short of the advertised time
