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!

Zoltan was knowldeable, accommodating ,informative and a great guide for our 5 hour private tour. So much better to see Vienna this way. Saw areas and sights we would never have seen on our own. Highly recommended!
Highly recommended. Our driver, Mario and our guide, Kasper are very flexible and knowledgeable.
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.
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!

Our private Vienna City Tour was one of the highlight of our entire trip! Our tour guide, Ana, was knowledgeable, passionate about the city, and had nothing but the utmost respect for and knowledge about all the attractions we visited. She showed up BEFORE our scheduled tour time and took us to places we hadn't considered visiting. We loved the Hundret Wasser Village, Schonbrunn Palace, Naschmarkt where we stopped for lunch, and she took us to a point in the city where we had a panoramic view of the city! It was spectacular! The private tour gave us the opportunity to customize our trip to see what we wanted to see!
Our tour did not include a return shuttle to our ship, but Ana walked us to the subway, helped us purchase our tickets, and then she rode the subway back with us just to make sure we didn't get lost! She definitely went above and beyond as a tour guide!
I think the thing that impressed me the most about Ana was her passion and respect for Vienna and its culture. These sentiments were definitely conveyed in her tour.
Having only 6 people in our Mercedes Benz tour van was a huge plus! We had plenty of room and we were all quite comfortable thanks to our safe driver Mario!
A BIG thank you to Ana and Mario for the outstanding tour!
Wonderful! The tour guide was fantastic and so knowledgeable as was the driver. Really a highlight of our trip
A great overview of the city. Corniellia was a great guide and Marco was a great driver. Both spoke very good English !!
We saw so much of the city and were educated about all we were seeing and visiting. It's a long day , we did the 7 hour tour, but it's very comprehensive so on the days following we didn't feel pressure to see things we had not yet seen.
Our guide, Alex or Alec - sorry I'm not certain was excellent and gave us a lot of historical information in an enjoyable way. We saw all the sights we were interested in. The walking tour portion of the tour was particularly interesting and informative and we were especially impressed with the churches. We ended the tour with a much greater understanding of the city, the people, and the history of Vienna.
Our tour, with Cordelia, was excellent. She was friendly, energetic and very knowledgeable about Vienna and its history. She encouraged questions AND customized the tour to your liking and interests.
Our private tour with Ana was the highlight of our stay in Vienna. She was the best and we would tour with her over and over again. She was a wealth of information. The combination of both a driving tour and a walking tour was really superb! We covered so much ground and saw so many amazing sights. Having a private guide made it so easy to customize our tour experience. Thank you Ana and Viator.
George was amazing, we had a wonderful day. Very knowledgeable and we learned much about Vienna that we did not know in the past
Natalie was absolutely superb in her role as our private guide. Her knowledge, delivery, joie de vivre and ebullience ensured we had the greatest value received for our time together. Vienna is a must see bucket list city and, like New York, Paris, Florence and others, it's one that takes multiple visits to fully appreciate. Natalie ensured we were able to see everything one could see in a day and yet still take enough time in each place that we were able to appreciate what was there to be seen and experienced.
Loved our tour. Anna was a wonderful guide!! It was a though we were with a wonderful friend who was incredibly knowledgeable about her topic. Our driver was terrific too!! You have a devoted client!!
Our guide was knowledgeable and personable. She was timely and her commentary was not rote.
AnnaLisa was an excellent guide! She was friendly and gracious. She had an amazing grasp of history and art. Vienna's past came alive through her recounting stories and insights not just name and dates.
