I fully recommend

I was pleasantly surprised when the bus driver took us first to main parts of Vienna, and we also had a presentation of the attractions there. The guide had a very well knowledge of the attraction and the castle, had a very pleasant way of explaining and also spoke very good English. We also had free time at the castle and we avoided the line how the name says it.
Just skip the line

The meeting point was easy to find, and they were on time. You really skip the line, we got there, we didn't have to wait to get in. I will give five points for only this, because the rest was just one point. Once everybody gets on the bus, the sightseeing stars. This sightseeing means going around and hopefully you see was it is pointed out, if you are on the right side of the bus, you see only the buildings on the right, same with the left side, only the ones on the left. After the "sightseeing", we went to Schonbrunn. We skipped the line, and we were rushed from one room after another pushing every other person who was there, trying to listen to the guide, 39 rooms in half hour. After that, we had one hour free to spend in the gardens of gift shop, and back to the bus. We didn't take the bus back, it is an easy train ride from there, and we enjoy the gardens and the famous zoo. We took the Spanish tour hoping there were less people than the English one, and the number was half the size of the other one, but it was mixed languages, German and Spanish, and the guide didn't speak well in Spanish.
Not upto Viator standards.

Though it was an English speaking tour, the guide had to speak both English and Deutsche. Hence the landmarks were passing us so fast, that it did not make any sense. The good had total disinterest on his passengers, left us with no time to visit the palace gardens, which is the highlight. Overall a total waste of hard earned 65 USD.

very knowledgeable guide - very interesting tour - worth going to to see this lovely palace and its grounds. there are several other places nearby to visit as well
Very good tour
, Mar 2019
The tour was very good and an efficient way to see a lot of the city. The tour guide was fine. Our tour had mostly Spanish speakers and some English speakers and she gave each talk in both languages. She seemed to warm up over the course of time and become more interesting and less rote. I thought the time at the Palace was just enough.
Great start to a city break

Meeting by the "pink rabbit" got our weekend off to a great start. Our guide was knowledgeable and interesting, A great way to get an overview of the city before setting out alone.

Skip the line and the bus ride were good but the guide was an utter disappointment and lacked interest in the tour
Disappointed 😔
, Dec 2018
This tour was sold to us as an English spoken tour. There was English BUT nearly two thirds of the time spent was German commentary. It spoilt my trip as I felt I lost 2 thirds of my trip. I wanted to learn more but couldn’t. Also, the German commentary was first so many times the item that was being described was level with us or behind us. This happened in both the bus and in the Palace. The commentary we heard was good but could have been even better if the trip was an English only. This would have also been for the German Linguistics although they got the lion share of time.
Awesome loved every minute

Booked an hour before departure as Vienna very busy. On time. Great commentary on bus and again in Palace. Amazed by guides ability to speak in 3 languages. Highly recommended. Set us up to really appreciate everything Vienna has to offer.
Beautiful palace
