This was the most amazing day! Our tour guide, Franz, was not only incredibly knowledgeable about Vienna - both past and present - but it was truly wonderful to spend the day with him. It is not always easy to spend all day with a total stranger and feel comfortable, but the day with Franz was exceptional. We went to Belvedere Palace and walked around the grounds, talking about the Vienna skyline and how it has changed, or not, over time. We drove out to Schoenbrunn Palace and did a tour of part of the inside and walked around all of the outside grounds which are huge, with big fountains and little quiet nooks. We had a lovely lunch at a beer garden, then came back to central Vienna and strolled around downtown. Franz took us places that we never would have found on our own, and pointed out interesting aspects of art and architecture. He was perfectly happy to let us customize the tour to our tastes, but since we were Vienna novices, we let him steer us to the places he thought we'd find interesting, and he was spot on. Although we only spent the one day with him, he was with us for the rest of our stay. We'd say remember what Franz said about this or that? It was an exceptional way not only for us to get our bearings, but also to feel like we had seen and learned so much in just one day. I imagine all the Viator guides are skilled, but if you can request Franz, you're sure to have a day to remember. If I could rate this tour with more than 5 stars, I would give it 10!

Great tour but Ana made it even better!!! She accommodated the schedule according to our needs and interest without any problems. For instance, the Schonbrunn Palace visit was not included in the tour. She not only helped us get inside the palace avoiding the lines, she was our guide, at no extra cost. She was wealth of knowledge and she kept checking with us if we wanted to more/less information.
I highly recommend this tour!

This tour was great and our guide Zoltan was the best! We learned a lot about the city and its history, and the pace was adequate for our family with a 2 year old along. Zoltan was kind and funny, and very knowledgeable about the sites and their peculiarities. We would definitely recommend this tour for anyone interested in getting a good overview of Vienna.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2017

This is a great way to see Vienna with a more personal experience. The guide is a professional guide and very knowledgeable. Tour is very accommodating to your preference. We had already been in Vienna a couple of days so we were able to skip some things we had already seen and have the tour go to other areas. Having a vehicle and driver at your disposal is very convenient to see some of the outlying areas of the city. Our guide also went with us through the Schonbrunne Palace and was able to get us straight to the front of the line for both tickets and entry and of course was our personal guide through the palace and grounds.

Worth every penny, my guide Anna was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable, I learned so very much just speaking with her, and she asked me many questions as well to determine my interests and base knowledge level. I only knew I wanted to see Schonbrunn palace and visit the local Harley-Davidson dealership. Anna filled in all the other gaps with the sites that were of interest to me, like the Treasury which contains the crown jewels, the Austrian National Library whose State Hall is one of the most beautiful libraries in the world, and the Spanish Riding School of Vienna. I would do this tour all over again, and I highly recommend it. One note, I was told my guide's name was Anna, but looking at her name badge, I saw her full name is something like Cassianna, I can't recall her full name exactly, but I recommend you ask for her!
