Great Tour. Would definitely recommend!

Skip-the-line Schonbrunn Palace Rooms & Gardens Private Tour
We booked the 3.5 hour skip the line Schonbrunn Palace Rooms tour. Our guide was Ulrike. She was incredibly knowledgeable and answered all our questions while pointing out all the important facts/pieces in each of the 40 rooms we toured! It was great to skip the line to enter the palace, which was quite full during our visit.

Claire was an excellent guide. It was so much better to have our own guide than to struggle with the crowds. Particularly one who could describe the sights so clearly and with insights. And the provided transfer made it much easier for us. We are very glad we chose this tour.

Skip-the-line Schonbrunn Palace Rooms & Gardens Private Tour
The private tour of the palace was worth the money! We had a fabulous experience. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgable, he shared many details we would not have gotten otherwise and gave some great insider tips. After the tour we spent time in the gardens and the zoo. I highly recommend the private experience as we skipped all lines and it was easy to hear and understand everything the guide was saying. Very personalized experience.

Our tour guide was excellent- Jennifer or Jenny- she was an expert and easy to hear. She had knowledge of the details of the palace, the history and stories. We are glad we went in early October with very little crowds. If you want on your own walk up to the view from the Gloriette. If you wish to have lunch there book a month in advance.
