Itinerary

Day 1: 11am at Cafe Museum
Make your own way to Café Museum, a five-minute walk from the State Opera. When you arrive at the legendary coffeehouse, simply hand over your voucher and sit down to enjoy a selection of three coffee specialties (an espresso, a melange and a 'Mozart coffee') with an explanation of each from your waiter. While you sip and compare your coffees, soak up the sophisticated cafe atmosphere and indulge in your accompanying Viennese Trio – an assortment of three Viennese desserts! When you’re finished, you’ll receive a souvenir poster displaying different types of coffee.

Day 2: 10:15 am or 11:30am at Augarten Palace
After making your way to Augarten Palace, a Baroque stunner set amid a lovely park, meet your guide and take a one-hour tour of the on-site Augarten Porcelain Factory. One of Europe’s oldest and most famous porcelain manufacturers, Augarten is known for its delicate and graceful shapes, clean lines, and exquisite details. During your small-group tour, learn about its history, which dates back to the early 1700s, as well as the production process, from the raw material to the finished, painted product.

Following your tour, relax with a cup of coffee and piece of cake at the Augarten restaurant Décor, where you can enjoy the elegant ambience of the terrace.

This tour is a joke - don't take it - it's not even a clever rip-off. The Cafe Museum is not a museum at all - it's just a cafe, like hundreds of other cafes in Vienna. Some bright spark thought of bringing tourists into this busy cafe, offer them 3 mediocre cups of coffee and even more mediocre slices of cake, and call it a 'coffee-tasting' experience ! It costs the earth too to drink these mediocre cups of coffee - our hotel coffee at breakfast is far better. We thought there would be some demo or explanation of coffee cultivation or making - but there was nothing. Not even that ugly free poster that we were supposed to be given at the end. We were just shown to a table in this busy cafe, and this mediocre coffee and cake was brought for our consumption. So, is this to be called 'coffee-tasting' like wine-tasting ? As for the porcelain factory, it is well worth giving it a miss. They do a lot of painstaking work to produce their porcelain pieces, but at those costs, who wants them or wants to know about them ? All in all, bin this tour Viator - it is hardly a tour or experience ! There may be fat commission for Viator, but that hardly justifies including this as an option for the cultured tourist !

We only made it to part one of the tour so this is a half review - but the tasting and mini talk at Cafe Museum was amazing! It was a perfect into to Viennese cafes and Viennese style coffees and amazingly delicious. Highly recommend.

This is a self guided tour over two days. You make your own way to a lovely coffee cafe and sample coffee and cakes. Really excellent. Anytime during the next five days you go for a tour of a porcelain factory and get coffee and cake after.

This was a little disappointing. The first tasting was very unremarkable- the waiter seemed surprised to see us despite having pre-booked the time, and then three coffees and pastries were just delivered to the table with no explanation of which was which. The poster was interesting however. The second day the porcelain tour was a little disorganized as well. It took a while to explain why we were there, although it was at the appointed time for the tour we were instructed pre-booking was not needed. They did manage to find an English speaking guide however and the tour was well worth it and informative. The setting for dessert and coffee outside was lovely and worth going as well.

This tour gets 4 stars from us because of the Cafe Museum. We had a hard time finding the place, but that wasn't their fault. But by the time we found it, my husband was in a less than pleasant mood, so I was apprehensive that it would get better. However, the manager of the cafe came over, sat us in a reserved booth, and have us a wonderful introduction to the history of the cafe and the owners. We had a lovely time, tasted several amazing coffees, which he explained how they were made and what made them different from other coffee. Vienna has lots of different styles of coffee, and all of them were explained. We really had a lovely time. I could have spent the rest of the day there. We were made to feel welcome, and comfortable, like you were one of the family. Loved it. Since the family that owns this cafe also owns many others in the city, we would have loved to have visited the others since they are all different. I would recommned to Viator to see if that could be put together. As for the Porcelain factory, it was an interesting tour,but it was not easy to get to, and we had a hard time finding a cab to come back. they gave us a coupon to have coffee in their cafe, but it really lacked the style and warmth that the Cafe Museum had, so it was a bit of a disappointment after visiting there.
