Have your camera ready as you drive along the famous Ringstrasse boulevard, home to many of Vienna’s glorious buildings. Snap photos of the imperious Vienna State Opera as your guide explains its history and role as the home of the legendary ‘Opera Ball’, the annual Austrian society event.

Admire the grandiose Hofburg Palace, the former winter residence of the Hapsburg monarchs and birthplace of Marie Antoinette in 1755. Then, pass a roll call of other buildings, including the Museum of Art History, the neoclassical Austrian Parliament, Burgtheater and City Hall (Rathaus).

Continue to the magnificent Schönbrunn Palace, the 1,441-roomed Baroque summer residence of the Hapsburgs, including Marie Antoinette’s mother, Maria Theresa.

Head inside the UNESCO-listed palace and enjoy a guided tour of its extravagant staterooms to see how the royal family once lived. Then, enjoy free time to explore the gardens with their symmetrical terraces and fountains, or relax with a coffee or snack such as apple strudel (both at own expense) at the café.

Afterward, drive to the 18th-century Belvedere Palace, built by Prince Eugene of Savoy, whose upper palace houses a splendid collection of Austrian art, including Gustav Klimt’s Kiss, the highpoint of his ‘Golden Period.’

  • One of the largest zoo I visited and the oldest

  • With a tour of the Ringstrasse plus the Palace, this was value for the money.

  • The tour was perfect. You got a glimpse of the highlights downtown and all the amazing buildings and architect. You were able to go right into Schonbrunn without waiting in line and seeing the main rooms of the palace. There was even time to walk around the gardens and take photos. I loved that they gave you the option of being dropped off at the Belvedere so that you could visit there and were given discounted coupons for your tickets. The walk back to city center was about 20 mins.

  • Nice overview of the city and many highlights pointed out. Guide knowledgeable and helpful. Could have better explained free access to the back gardens but overall a great experience.

  • On the bus,the views were very limited and explanation not very detailed. That all changed at the palace when there was plenty of time and great,detailed explanation of it's history.

  • We loved the place especially the gardens! You will have beautiful photos and interesting stories to take back home

  • Good tour , Expensive to see 8 or 10 rooms, beautiful gardens, Go and see the gardens for free and give the castle a miss

  • It felt a little rushed. The tour guide was great, he knew the palace and Vienna history well. It was extremely hot the day we went which may have made the tour seem less enjoyable. It did save us from having to wait in line at the palace.

  • The tour guide was very quite .. she will guide me to sleep .. also she didn't guide the group to take photos from top of chonbroun palace

  • Wonderful experience. Best way to see the Palace if short of time and keen to avoid the long lines and vast crowds. Good way to view something of the city too
