This was an excellent evening for a Viennese cultural night for a visitor. The palace tour was great 16.50 euro grand tour ticket included. The dinner was very good -pre-fixed 3 course meal, drinks not included at a nice restaurant in the palace front courtyard indoor seating followed by a 1.5 hour show with a mix of orchestra, opera and ballet. Overall a lovely evening. We arrived at 2pm to enjoy the gardens and tour which finished around 5pm.
Worth having the experience of watching the concert in the palace. The tickets said that the venue gets changed many a times, but luckily for us it was in the palace, and it was a sight worth witnessing. The concert was really good too.
Doing what: Schonbrunn Palace Evening Concert
Schonbrunn Palace is well worth visiting. Tour guide gave a good account of the history and important facts related to the palace
Consolidated big group tour. Not much time allocated to Schonbrunn Palace.
The package is great with the Sightseeing Combo of two palaces and dinner and concert. We love the little souvenirs. We had very high expectations on the concert. It was the third concert we attended in Vienna, after the Mozart concert at Musikverein and Mozart and Strauss Concert at the Volkstheatre. Probably due to the venue, the day of the week Monday night or the weather, the performance and the sound effect were not as good as the previous two. We were a little disappointed at the concert.
Palace was magnificent.
This tour was a bit rushed. The Palace was amazing. The grounds beautiful and the rooms over the top. Very crowded though and
a lot of interference from other headset devices.

We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the Opera where we boarded our bus. The drive to the palace was interesting as our guide pointed out various sites. This includes a limited tour of the palace, in case you might be wanting something more extensive. We had time to go to the gift shop by the entrance. The stop at Belvedere Palace was rather short. We had a short walk to the gardens with limited time for photos . I would call this an adequate introduction that may have you doing more extensive follow up visits if you have the time.

3 hour boat tour was 2 hours too long since there was no music to listen to and not enough information about the country. The dinner was vry good and the concert was wonderful but hot in the palace.
2 stars because it was just ok and really could have been better. The tour to Schonbrunn was quick and short, we were only give 40 minutes on our own, we weren't able to go see the garden and glorietta because we were rushing to go back to the tour bus, mind you the walk from the palace to the bus takes 15 minutes already. The tour guide was not friendly, felt like she was just there to do her job but was not really engaging and accommodating. If i knew it was gonna be like this, we would have done the tour to the place ourselves.
This was a wonderful experience. Our guide Ilse was incredibly knowledgable about Schonbrunn Palace, its history and the history of the monarchs who ruled Vienna and Vienna in general. She really brought the place to life with interesting stories as we visited each of the public rooms and the gardens. Would absolutely recommend.

Great place to visit the rooms are amazing. Very easy to use audio system. If you want to buy the book about the palace you can't take photos inside the rooms get it in a bookshop in Wenceslas Platz as it is half the price of the ones at the palace. The concert is agreat experience as well.
We loved the concert ad the palace and the meal was acceptable. We arrived in Vienna too late to take the palace tour the day we were booked for, so they very kindly allowed us to go the next day. A
It is a Don't get stressed, get Strauss-ed! One expression I learned here in Vienna and I applied it well last evening when we went for dinner and concert at the Schonbrunn Palace. The concert was at the Orangerie the room where the emperor listened to music, and where Mozart and Strauss performed. And I had a seat in the front row and was fantastic! The concert ended with The Blue Danube and Radinsky March. It was like a preview of the New Years Eve Concert where I keep trying for years to get a ticket.must to have dinner and to listen to the concert
The tour provided a good introduction to a beautiful big old city as Vienna. Not only did the coach tour covered the famed Ringstrasse but also covered the considerable distance among the palaces at a reasonable time. Highlights, of course, are the guided tour of Schonbrunn Palace with amusing stories of the life and times of the royals, vast photo opportunities during the tour, and a visit to Belvedere Palace. We took the time on our own to explore Belvedere Palace, it actually took us a few hours to move around the museum and to enjoy the splendid gardens...an excellent way to cap our tour for the day.
The setting in the palace was beautiful, sitting where Mozart and Strauss actually had performed was moving, the food was fine desert was the best part, and the music was very good. If they had played a few more melodies were familiar with, it would have been 5 stars.
loved the palace, and the tour was good gave me an insight of what i wanted to see in vienna
We missed the bus the first day as we had two bits of paper with different pick up points and times,We sorted it out by the afternoon and had the tour of city and palace on the Monday .The palace tour was too short so we spent the whole day there and forgo the rest of the city tour, The tea and dinner was good and the concert superb,
Guide was very knowledgeable. Thr palace is beautiful.
However, the palace is mobbed and even though we had headsets programmed to our guide, there was s lot of interference. We could hear and understand very little.
This tour could have been better, if it had not been so rushed - only 15 minutes after seeing the inside of the palace, to walk to the gardens, try to see them, and get back to our coach, which was parked 8 minutes' walk away outside the palace gates.
The tour would have been great, except the tour guide was very difficult to understand. I felt I understood her French more than her English and I don't speak French. She was very monotone and I got the impression she did not like her job. I felt we were inconveniencing her by being on the tour. She also scolded the tourists on the trip like they were children when they dared talk.
The tour itself is nice and the palace is amazing but very crowded.
The meeting point was easy to locate. Once you board the bus, you just pass through the important places. The only place you get down is at Schonbrunn palace. Bus they took us there was good and the driver was courteous. The guide did not provide clear instructions and left us when we went to deposit our backpacks where we took less than a minute. Thanks to the palace personnel who helped us to locate the group. Her voice was low and not so clear. And she ran through the rooms giving very little time for the group. Many of the folks in the group got lost due to this. My suggestion is to take metro/bus to reach the palace and buy your own tickets to the palacewith audio guide and the garden and enjoy the place at a lesser price than this tour.
Not very delicious food. The palace visit worth but concert no
NOT HAPPY AT ALL!! AFTER DINNER AT THE COURTYARD YOU LOST US.
ARE WAITER WAS GREAT, BUT DINNER AT A PALACE WAS THE EXPECTATION.
WE LEFT DURING INTERMISSION OF THE CONCERT. ODDLY SO DID THE OTHER COUPLE FROM THE COURTYARD. MY SUGGESTION IS IF YOU CANT GIVE SOMEONE THE FULL EXPERIENCE CANCEL IT.
Great overall tour of the city and getting fast-track into the palace with a guided tour definitely helps. The palace is packed with people and probably not a good idea to do a self-guided audio tour. We also had some free time to visit the garden or to roam around the area.
