Millie_S, Jun 2022
Horst was an amazing tour guide full of interesting stories and facts. He did a great job of keeping track of us all. I highly recommend this tour. I didn't think I would be comfortable riding a bike in such a busy city in a foreign country but I was.
Not what we expected
Ian_K, Jun 2022
The guide was obviously knowledgeable but seemed to be oblivious of the slower members of our group who had to be escorted by other group members- particularly busy time for a trip due to gay pride procession but guide should have taken that into account. His style was more dictatorial than imparting details about the city.

To see a city on a bike is always the best way to see new placed. Vienna is a great city to cycle in. Recommended
Great educational tour small amount of biking
Jennifer_G, Jul 2021
The tour guide was AWESOME and he had incredible knowledge about the area. If it was educational and not that much exercise. In the future I would have booked. a private tour to skip the town and get more riding in. The bikes were well maintained and it was safe. My kids loved it. Again tour guide was fantastic and I would recommend doing private so you can do as much or little biking/history as you want. It was overall wonderful
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Hello Jennifer, Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. We are truly glad that you had a fun time biking around our beautiful Vienna. We would love to organize a private bike tour for you once you come back to Vienna. All the best, Vienna Explorer

We did this tour as a family of four. The meeting place was easy to find and the tour guide was very informative. My family had a great time visiting some of the most important tourist sites in Vienna. We had sufficient number of stops and got rest for a few minutes. There was a stop for bathroom break and a little shopping too. Overall highly recommended.

Steve_R, Sept 2016
Amazing! This tour was everything we expected and more! Kaspar was our guide and gave us so much history of this beautiful city along the Danube River plus took us to places for great photo opportunities. The tour was longer than the time stated which didn't bother us because of how much we saw and learned. Easy streets to navigate and felt safe the entire time.
