It was almost a perfect day. I appreciated the talent of the multilingual guide. Also it was a lovely fall day where we saw Mayerling with lots of background information. Also enjoyed the amazing manmade underground lake which was very interesting!
Only one concern:
When we were dropped off at the lovely Opera House on a busy Sunday afternoon, after the tour, there was not a taxi to be found! I have a serious mobility issue and had to walk SEVERAL blocks back to my hotel.
I understand the Opera House is used because many people will continue with an afternoon tour, but I am 70 years old and wanted a rest at my hotel. Maybe it was because it was a Sunday, but I was unhappy.
Later that evening, I took another Viator tour to the Palace for a Mozart/Strauss Concert which was wonderful. Taxis there both ways were very accessable.
I was very glad we chose Viator for this excusrion. We enjoyed it very much. The bus picked us on time, the guide was very good, everything that we saw was very interesting, I hope you have many other tours that we can choose for our next trips to Europe.
The only highlight is the boat ride on the Seegrotte which makes the tour worthwhile.
The countryside was beautiful and it was good to to see the area outside the city of Vienna. It would have been really nice if the weather has cooperated..
Enjoyed the bus trip through the woods and seeing Mayerling. The monastery was really interesting but thoroughly enjoyed the boat ride through the underground lakes. Very pretty.
We enjoyed this tour despite the heavy rain. The bus was comfortable, the commentary interesting. The Vienna Woods were picturesque, and the cruise on the man-made underground lake was fun. It was a very pleasant and relaxing half-day tour.
Pleasant trip through gorgeous country-side; very cool boat trip on the underground lake and interesting information.
An enjoyable half day trip although, as someone with a walking problem, I would have appreciated more warning of the walking distance and the number of steps to be negotiated inside the tunnel. However, the excursion was really interesting and the guide brilliant with his command of so many languages, great singing voice and considerable background knowledge.
The beginning of the tour was going to a church we were not interested in - but then we went onto the the Vienna Woods and down to the Seegrotto which was excellent.
