    The best way to see Schonbrunn
    Samuel_Y, Oct 2022
    Claire was an excellent guide. It was so much better to have our own guide than to struggle with the crowds. Particularly one who could describe the sights so clearly and with insights. And the provided transfer made it much easier for us. We are very glad we chose this tour.
    Wonderful Experience
    Amy_E, Oct 2022
    The private tour of the palace was worth the money! We had a fabulous experience. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgable, he shared many details we would not have gotten otherwise and gave some great insider tips. After the tour we spent time in the gardens and the zoo. I highly recommend the private experience as we skipped all lines and it was easy to hear and understand everything the guide was saying. Very personalized experience.
    Highly recommend

    Leslie_W, Oct 2022
    Our tour guide was excellent- Jennifer or Jenny- she was an expert and easy to hear. She had knowledge of the details of the palace, the history and stories. We are glad we went in early October with very little crowds. If you want on your own walk up to the view from the Gloriette. If you wish to have lunch there book a month in advance.

    Schonbrunn Palace private tour
    Ashley_P, Aug 2022
    The Schonbrunn Palace was incredible! Our guide was very knowledgeable and thorough, which made the private tour very worth the cost. I wish we had planned to allow more time for the amazing gardens, but we had booked the Hofburg Palace tour that same afternoon:) I highly recommend this tour!
    Romane is an excellent guide.
    Luis_G, Jul 2022
    Romane, our guide was excellent. She was super knowledgeable and made de whole tour interesting for a grupo ranging from 10 to 86 years old.
    Enjoyed the private tour of the palace.
    William_D, Jul 2022
    Our private tour guide made the experience more interesting. Even the rain couldn’t keep us from walking through the gardens afterward.
