very uplifting concert! lovely night out.
I think that online description of Electronic Vouchers failed to explain that these vouchers have to be presented in the ticket office across the road from Opera House, so that you get SEAT NUMBERS.
We discovered it just by chance. Seat numbers are important - we were presented with available choices and selected the best available at the time ( morning of the concert day).
Dinner at Bristol Lounge was very good- meal was good and staff were very friendly, courteous and helpful! Vienna Mozart orchestra concert was excellant and Vienna opera house was amaging!! We both, my wife and I enjoyed the evening!

It was an interesting experience! The concert at the State Opera of Vienna shouldn't be missed!
Absolutely amazing! Do not see myself as an "opera guy! ... more Grand Old Opry, lol ... but this was incredible. Historical costumes, 18th century palace, magical evening. This is what heaven will sound like.

At last I got to sit in the Opera House, and Viator made it possible!
A perfect evening at the Opera, and great seats too!
We enjoyed the concert with its variety of musical pieces being played, particularly my favourite Blue Danube and the Magic Flute. The conductor was fun and got the entire audience involved in clapping with the music. Though its performance is not as good as that of the Schönbrunn Palace concert, it is worthwhile to experience a concert in such beautiful opera house and also get a complimentary CD. It is a bit disappointing that the CD was not for each person, but for each party attended the concert.
The cycle tour was a great way to see the highlights of central Vienna. I certainly recommend the tour but I would make the following 2 points which seem to appear on other reviews:
1. Some participants still went to the wrong corner of the Opera house, the tour waited for them and caused everybody to lose 30 minutes of the tour.
2. Initially we were told that 2 guides would take us but at the last minute only one guide looked after 15 people (mostly German) so the commentary was then predominantly in German and there was no translation of the answers given the time shortage.

We missed the tour departure because we were waiting at the wrong corner of the Opera House....the corner Viator sent us to. One of the group walked all the way around the Opera House and was still unable to connect. Pedal Power advises that they have notified Viator of this problem previously. Fortunately, they were able to hook us up with their Segway tour and save the day. Go to the LEFT corner as you face the Opera House, not the right! Viator, get your act together!!!

It was a pleasure to go to the state opera house, but the show was a little disappointing. Not enough real opera, which would have made the evening even more special.
Being in the Vienna State Opera is a memorable experience. Mozart is always delightful but overalls this was a kitschy, touristy concerns. Not for regular sophisticated concert goers. The consumes made it even more kitschy. And the prices wer too high for what the concert offer re.
There are many concerts like this one offered in Vienna.
Although the concert, costumes, and Opera singers were fairly good, the venue of the Opera House was MUCH too large and the acoustics were WAY below satisfaction due to the large amount of air/space. The string section simply got "lost".
I suggest future travelers pick a concert at another venue, which you offer, that will be much smaller and enjoyable.
The opera itself was great, but the seats we got by paying for Cat A were lousy. I would suggest booking directly on viennaconcerts or booking while in Vienna so you get good seats for the category you pay for.
