Your tour will begin with pickup from the Vienna Opera House, Südtiroler Platz or your centrally-located hotel. Hop aboard your coach, where you’ll be welcomed by your local guide.

Drive along the Ringstrasse, a boulevard showcasing some of Vienna’s most stunning architecture. Hear the rich history behind Austria’s ‘Opera Ball’ as you pass the Vienna State Opera.

You’ll also see the neoclassical design of the Austrian Parliament, City Hall, Burgtheater and the Museum of Art History. Witness the grandeur of the Hofburg Palace, where Marie Antoinette was born in 1755.

After exploring the city by coach, hop out on foot to roam the Baroque Schönbrunn Palace, where the Hapsburgs spent their summers.

Comprising 1,441 rooms, follow your guide through the lavish interior and discover the stories behind this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Afterward, soak up some free time to walk the gardens, or head to the cafe to purchase a coffee or strudel.

Then, climb back in your coach with your guide and drive to the Belvedere Palace. Wander the incredible collection of Austrian art at a discounted entry price, admiring the 18th-century rooms where works such as Gustav Klimt’s Kiss are displayed.

If you’d prefer more free time to explore, you can walk the Belvedere grounds independently instead, rejoining your guide for transportation back to Südtiroler Platz, with additional complimentary transfer to the State Opera, if desired.

This was my first ever trip out of the UK to another country, so it was very special for me anyway. The Guided tour of Schonbrunn Palace and historical city tour was absolutely fabulous. The tour guide, Martin, gave a first class and very clear commentary in English, and his added humour gave it something more. I was very impressed indeed with the city of Vienna, and even though I was only there for a few days, I got to know my way around to some extent, and was able to enjoy the time beyond expectations. One thing which stood out for me in the city was that compared to many of the British towns and cities I've been used to all of my life, I saw absolutely no litter anywhere in Vienna, a wonderfully clean and bright city, with a massive amount of very interesting history to see and experience. I did have a specific reason for visiting Vienna, which was to attend two musical events one a concert by the Schonbrunn Palace Orchestra at the Schonbrunn Orangery, which was very beautiful. The second was the premiere of a new opera - Cinderella by Alma Deutscher - at the Casino Baumgarten, which was my main reason for being in Vienna, and was very special indeed. I would recommend Vienna to anyone, and the Guided Tour of Schonbrunn Palace and the historical city is an absolute must. A fantastic trip that I shall remember always.

Very good


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

Very good tour of city by bus, then photo stop at Belvedere, and knowledgable skip the line tour of Schonbrunn Palace. It was November so Christmas market was in full swing and we had free time to look. My only complaint is the tour write up said we would have option reduced price entrance to the Belvedere. It was never mentioned during the tour when I asked the guide she said the Belvedere would be closed when our tour was completed. This was misleading in tour write up. I'd still recommend this tour

I would highly recommend this tour for first-time visitors to Vienna. The coach tour covered the many buildings around the famed Ringstrasse and the guide provided detailed explanations about them. The Schonbrunn Palace is very beautiful and definitely worth the visit. As it is only a 3.5 hour tour, I find the time at Schonbrunn a rush and would be better if we have more time to explore the gardens a little.
