Begin your private tour at your Vienna accommodation, where you’ll board an air-conditioned vehicle and greet your personal guide and chauffeur. Having both a driver and guide ensures your guide can offer you full attention throughout the tour.
Whilst driving down the famous Vienna Ring Road, flanked by grand buildings commissioned by Emperor Franz Josef, your guide directs your attention to the Vienna Opera House, the Kunsthistorisches Museum, the Old Town Hall, and the University of Vienna. Disembark at Imperial Palace (Hofburg) to capture photographs of the former residence of the Habsburg dynasty.
Then, depart the city center and begin your journey to Schonbrunn Palace. On the way, you’ll see Prater — home to the iconic Giant Ferris Wheel — and City Park, reigned over by the glittering golden statue of Johann Strauss.
With your skip-the-line ticket in hand, bypass lines outside of the UNESCO-listed Schonbrunn Palace and head straight inside the regal residence. Alongside your guide, you’ll discover opulent chambers brimming with classic art and antique furniture, and have time to discover the palace’s beautiful gardens.
The itinerary of your private tour is completely customizable, so feel free to inform your guide if you’d like to make additional stops. Conclude your tour with hotel drop-off.
