  • Tour was good but not amazing

  • The logistics on this were great, and it's a good way to avoid the lines and also get very basic information about the Palace and the City. I found the information, though, to be very superficial and not very informative and I didn't feel super comfortable asking the guide questions even though I did ask a few. We could have a learned a lot more about the Imperial family, I thought.

  • With my interest historical the visit to the Shonbrunn Palace was indeed wonderful despite it being a rainy day. I would have liked this tour to include the Belvedere as well. This tour gives you a broad idea of Vienna prompting you to investigate further its many historical attractions. Highly recommended.

  • Just simply fantastic

  • Great trip! Definitely worth the money. Guide was awesome!

  • Excellent palace to see and guided tour around the city is helpful

  • Interesting!!!

  • Well, we only saw Schönbrunn Palace ... we didn't really explore the other attractions in Vienna. I suggest that you explore Vienna in your own.

  • the guide was very knowledgeable and very detailed. The palace was awesome.

  • Very eluminating tour
