A friendly, enjoyable trip in a small, friendly group with comprehensive and well informed commentary by our guide we can't remember her name but we went on 23rd July 2016. We particularly enjoyed the visit to the architecture by Hundertwasser and Belvedere Palace. We would be happy to recommend this trip to friends.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

I gave it 5 stars because Vienna is wonderful. It and #39;s 4 hour drive, and there were only 3 travelers and the guide/driver. It was almost like a private tour, which is great, but the guide could be better...

Well worth a visit for a day trip to Vienna from Prague. Get to see the palace and explore its many rooms with audio tape to listen to the information. Also you have free time at the end to explore and get something to eat and use the opportunity wisely and take couple pictures. Definitely value for money.

The Vienna tour was amazing-both the excellent driver and knowledgeable guide made sure our small group of 4 were engaged and comfortable all during the trip.

Our guide was excellent and our drivers were wonderful. One of the people on the tour did not bring her passport, so she was driven back to her hotel to collect it. The tour was very informative and had a relaxed atmosphere - we didn't feel pressured by time.
