Hop aboard a cozy coach and journey east through the Austrian countryside toward Bratislava. As you go, soak up the stunning landscape as you cross the border into Slovakia.

Meet your local guide in Bratislava, making your way to the city’s Old Town for a walking tour. Learn the rich history behind the city as you pass top attractions and architectural gems.

Continue to the Rococo-style Grassalkovich Palace, an 18th-century social spot for Hungarian aristocracy. Then admire the Primate's Palace, considered one of the most stunning buildings in the city.

Afterward, refuel with lunch (not included) and enjoy some time to explore independently, perusing the Slovak National Theatre or popping into local shops and cafes.

Your day trip will conclude with a smooth drive back to central Vienna. Alternatively, upgrade your ticket to return to Vienna on a river cruise. Hop aboard a high-speed catamaran and enjoy the scenery of the Danube River along the way. Travel through the Danube wetlands and the Donau-Auen National Park before arriving in Vienna.

Great trip from Vienna. Definitly a must to return down the Danube. Walking tour is just a small intro lots more to Bratislava than just this tour

Very nice guide lots of information. Good bus ride. More than enough time to wonder around on our own to eat and look around.

Marvellous tour. The weather was as excellent as Eva our tour guide, full of knowledge and history facts. Time alone in the town after the drop by bus from Viena was enough to relax having some lunch, do some shopping and a relax with a cold bear given the plus 28 degrees we had. Trip back in the catamaran was a nice add. Recomended a 100

We started the day by being picked up at the City Opera house bus bus and transported to Bratislava from there a guide gave us a short walking tour. Everyone was offered a bus tour for an additional 9 euros. That was well worth the money. After we had several hours to sightsee and have lunch. Then we to the boat ride back to Vienna maybe the most fun. We were dropped off near the city center close to a U Bahn station.

Being short on time and not sure of the language, we opted to take this tour. Our guide Viera pointed out relevant sites and showed us others we might visit on our own. The tour lasted about an hour and the rest of the time was ours to wander around on our own. We rode the bus to Bratislava and took the catamaran back to Vienna. The boat trip back offered sights such as castles we might not have seen otherwise. Be aware, you find your own way back to your hotel on the U Bahn.

This tour started off well, but there was too much free time after a one hour guided walking tour if the old part of the city. Plan your activities in the 3-4 hours of spare time that you have in advance, so that you aren't left surprised at the end of the guided part of the tour. Luckily, I was able to do some walking around and went to see the little Blue Church, which was nice.

My hotel (le meridian) was very close to the meeting point. the driver come to pickup 12 minutes before the time (08:03 instead of 08:15) I left quikly the hotel and forget my phone. on the bus I see the problem and ask the guide to go back to bring my phone but she did not let me go and said that ther is just 10 minutes to go and its too short (the hotel was 2 minutes from the bus) so all day I have no camera and a bad filling about this trip

I won't repeat the praise of others regarding this quaint town and the high quality walking tour (2-2 1/2 hours) that it provides. I think it is a place many should visit, but to really appreciate it, people should plan ahead to decide what attractions they might want to see or do during the day, since you are given a huge amount of time on your own. (The local guide provides a map upon arrival.) The walking tour ended in time for lunch and then you hav the choice of going back by bus to Vienna at 2 pm. or waiting until 4 pm for the boat ride. I thought we might be given the chance to choose once we got to Bratislava, but were never offered the choice. I guess you can only do that when you book the tour. Overall, a pleasant day in a quaint city, but one that doesn't quite occupy one's time for a full day.

This was a good tour of the town with a look at its history. It was nice to be on the Danube boat to return.

Very well organised, Bratislava is a beautiful city, make sure you take the Catamaran option for your return to Vienna.
