As avid horse fans and owners were in awe of the stables, arena, tack room, history and up close proximity to the beautiful horses themselves, that we were afforded. Our guide was knowledgeable, informative and passionate about the History and current day workings of the Spanish Riding School. We didn't think we'd have such access to the school grounds. It was a wonderful tour!
The Spanish Riding School in Vienna has a lot going for it with baroque architecture, the largest oval horse walker in the world, and, of course, its Lipizzaner stallions.

Excellent your full of great history
, Oct 2019
There's absolutely no way we could have gotten anywhere near as great of an experience without Katerina. She took us around for three hours and explained the rooms and histories to us, including some random cool things like the mustach holder applied during sleep. I really cannot recommend this tour enough.
Our tour guide also took some fantastic pictures for us, which was lovely
Our guide was excellent. There was some confusion however with who our guide was to be and confusion on our guide’s end with the information she received. Once we had it worked out though the guided tour was excellent .

Went to see the Vienna palace but it was closed, went to see the parliament building but it was completely covered in scaffolding but got some nice pictures of the opera house. The best part of the tour was the food recommendation that we got from our guide which was delicious.

A wonderful experience touring the Jewish Quarter of the City. We started the tour at the oldest Temple in Vienna but the tour inside of the temple is a separate experience.

Skip the Line: Schonbrunn Palace Guided Tour in Vienna
Very nice tour
, Nov 2019
Franz was an informative guide, presenting the information with a side of fun and comedy. It made for a more enjoyable tour but still filled with the history of the family. At this time of year, the Christmas market in front is a nice extra! Enjoyable, even in the cold!
My husband normally HATES guided tours. Well, this tour was the exception, all due to our hilarious, knowledgeable and entertaining guide, Franz. Franz was able to weave fantastically interesting tidbits into his tour of the Schonbrunn palace that kept us engrossed. We left wanting more. You will learn so much about the Hapburg dynasty, and life in Vienna under Kaiser Franz Joseph & Sisi. Fabulous! A+, Franz! Thank you!
We had an excellent, knowledgeable guide lady who took time to answer any questions. We started our tour in the gardens and then entered the castle at precisely the correct time! The castle was stunning inside, but we only went through a few rooms on the first floor where Maria Theresa and family lived. I was too tired to make the trek up to the Gloriette, but they do offer small train rides. My daughter hiked back, about a half mile I think it is, and took some gorgeous pictures of the castle from there. It was your standard guided tour, but I can recommend it. Just be prepared to do a lot of walking.
The magnificent Schonbrunn Palace is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Vienna’s most visited attraction, and pre-booking skip-the-line entrance ensures you don’t waste time waiting in line. Follow in the footsteps of Emperor Franz Joseph and Empress Elisabeth on a guided tour through the palace and gardens, then enjoy free time to explore independently.
Hidden Gems in Vienna Inner City Private Walking Tour
From $223.11 per group
, Dec 2019
We took our tour with Hannes who did a fantastic job and gave us lots of interesting information. We asked for both Hidden Gems and normal tour stops for this as it was our very first time in Vienna and our first day so we wanted a proper tour to get our bearings for the city. After the tour we went back to several areas and stops that Hannes showed us to explore further. Overall it was really interesting and I would highly recommend it for a solid background on Vienna. Our tour was about 3 hours.
Walter proved to be a witty and fascinating guide to some of the unique places that lie off the beaten path. One moment we were among the crowds; the next we were scooting down an alley way or staircase that led to a special place. Much fun!

I’m not big on giving reviews, but this tour was so good that I wanted to share. I booked this as the first thing I did after arriving, and it was the best decision I made. Patrick is very knowledgeable (he knows the city inside and out), and he was able to customize what we did on the fly based on my preferences. He took me to places to try food & drinks that I would not have found on my own (and I’m a good online researcher!), and I enjoyed the experiences so much that I’d highly recommend others to check them out as well. He gave me a great overview of the central part of the city and recommended things I could do throughout the rest of my stay based on my interests. He even followed up the next day with Information on the places / things we discussed and provided some additional suggestions as well. I really had an enjoyable and lovely evening, and it set a great tone for the rest of my trip. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to start their trip off on the right foot!!
What a great tour and an even greater tour guide as well! Wolfie, as I think was his name, walked through the market area of the city where there was everything imaginable to buy from meats, fish, spices, candy and cafe's. We stopped at a candy shop where we were treated to lots of chocolate and a delicious hot chocolate late', then took a subway to a outdoor shop for Goulash, took a tram ride to a small outdoor market where we ate salad and dumplings at a private room, had Delicious pastry at a family owned and operated restaurant and finished off the tour at a local tavern. Our guide even waled us back to where the subway was located to get back to our hotel. If you book this tour, you won't need to eat either before of afterward as there was plenty to eat and drink and was all included in the price of the tour. Don't leave Vienna without taking this tour.

Small Group 3-hour History Tour of Vienna Art Nouveau: Otto Wagner and the City Trains
From $92.02 (Price varies by group size )
Great tour with knowledgable guide
, Jan 2020
Suzanne was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Viennese architecture. We learned a lot from her, and it has formed the core of my understanding of Vienna circa 1900, the Secession, and how those themes live on to this day.
We met at the Museum Cafe and walked to the Secession Building, where she talked about Otto Wagner and the city under construction. Lots of specifics, too many to mention. She tailored the tour to our needs as we were the only clients. We took the U4 train line to save on walking and warm up between discussions. We had a day pass so it worked well.

I highly recommend this tour. Verena was wonderful and we enjoyed some of the best food I had in Vienna. Our group was small and we had fun traveling through the city together. Verena provided excellent recommendations for off-the-beaten-path food, neighborhoods, and shopping in Vienna that greatly enhanced my overall experience of this remarkable city. Highly recommend.
