We were greeted at the Opera House just was we exited the underground subway -- the best way to get around in the center city. Lots of helpful Viator people! Bus was 2 level with plenty of comfortable seating. Our guide spoke English with hardly any accent at all. Using the 'quiet boxes" is so great because we can all hear everything what is said. This was a great tour and I highly recommend it!

Highly recommended tour as it will save you alot of time from entering the palace


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2018

Enjoyed the overview from the comfort of a charter bus since it was extraordinarily hot during our visit to Vienna. Our guide - whom I'm embarrassed to say I can't remember her name - was hugely informative and had a great sense of humor. Made the city seem more manageable. The luxury of skipping the line to get entry into the Schonbrunn Palace is worth the price of the tour alone.
This was a great choice for us particularly because we were only in the city for a couple days.

More time to see the grounds. It was either eat lunch or see the gardens. Hard to do both.
