There were only two couples on this tour including us which made the tour a little more intimate. Obviously, the tour guide spend a lot of time with us and answered all our questions. The wine at the end of the tour and the restaurant with the violinist and accordion player were surely a highlight of this tour. They played any song we wanted, in english or otherwise. Great tour!

European cities are lit up for the night time. Very good view of Vienna from the tower. Dinner was excellent.

The tour was informative and fun. The view from the Danube Tower was worth the tour in itself, however, the evening in Grinzing was lots of fun, the food was great and the entertainment was great. The DVD on Vienna I purchased from the tour guide was excellent. I would recommend this tour as well to family and friends.

The visit to the wine farm's wine bars and restaurants at the end was the highlight of the evening. The guide was very accommodating and interesting.

This tour provided a nice introduction to the city. While there was no opportunity to stop and take pictures of most of the historic buildings we saw, the Danube Tower was an excellent vantage point from which to get an overview of Vienna. The stop for wine and food in Grinsing was also enjoyable.

Our guide seemed very knowledgeable and spoke acceptable English. By driving out to the Danube Tower, we were able to see a lot of Vienna outside the downtown area where most tours are concentrated. The view from the tower is great. I was concerned that the last stop with the complementary glass of Viennese wine wasn't going to give us enough time to enjoy it, and get a bite to eat, but there was plenty of time, and the food and drinks were terrific.

Tour guide was excellent although he had to repeat himself in 5 languages. I am sure that he had to use shorter descriptions to fit it all in. Tower was as expected with beautiful views of Vienna. Our trip to Grinzing was also excellent although I was disappointed that it was a buffet meal. The atmosphere was terrific with music and sing alongs at our table.

A bit misleading as the picture presented in tour information is not the Danube Tower. The tour starts before sunset in August which was a little disappointing because we did not see the city after dark to see the beautiful city at night. Excellent English speaking tour guide.

This tour may be a bit different in winter when it gets darker earlier. I enjoyed the tour, but felt parts were overstated on Viator. The "admiring the historic buildings along Ring Avenue" was just a coach trip around the ring. Views from Danube tour were great, but still light due to it being summer. The description says 'end the night at a wine tavern in Grinzing", but most of our time was spent here, and if you are a non-drinker (like I am), it wouldn't be on your list of things to do. Having said that, the tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, and the performers at the winery were very talented.

It was a lot of fun, but essentially they just indentify points of interest on the way to the Danube Tower. That said the trip up the tower was a lots of fun, if your afraid of heights like me, the elevator is enclosed so your not looking outside as your going up and down. Also you can stay in an enclosed area or an open area at the top to enjoy the view! A view locations are poited out on the way on the way to the Wine Tavern. This was the best part, as they take you down to the wine cellar which is absoutely beautiful! The atmosphere is wonderful; candle lit, accordian and violin players to set the mood. Good Wine and a great dinner menu! Don't eat dinner before as you will be at the tavern for about an hour and a half. They do rop you off at your hotel after so you can drink as much as you want!

The trip to the Taverns was fun and compensated for the otherwise boring night drive through Vienna.

Seeing the beautiful buildings at night and the views from the tower was a great experience.

Unfortunately the evening I went on this tour the company was awful - the trip with the reisenrad was MUCH better and doing both isn't worthwhile.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this
August 2013

I would not recommend this tour at all. The tour was in daylight not night time as depicted in the brochure photo indicating that you would see lights of the city. The tour of the city only lasted 1 hour of the total 3 hours. After that we were taken to a local eatery to have dinner and the free drink. Nowhere in the tour description does it say that you will be having dinner while on the tour. We had already had an early dinner before we commenced the tour so was left twiddling our thumbs for over an hour while everyone else ate. It would be helpful to other travelers if this was mentioned in the tour description.
