Skip the Line: Schönbrunn Palace & Vienna City Tour
- Skip the ticket line
- Duration: 3.5 hours
The trip was very well organised, though we only found out at the last minute that we had to sign in with the sticker lady and get a sticker: our printed ticket was not enough and the sticker was needed inside the palace. The guide was very knowledgeable and fluent in English. Definitely worth skipping the line as the queues are enormous. The palace is incredible! We should have been bolder and made our own way back, to allow more time in the amazing gardens. If we had known hope how easy and cheap it is to use the underground trains (the U) we would have got back that way. Good tour, but heavy time pressure and struggling slightly to sort out the sticker situation took the edge off it, so not a 5*.
Brenda was an excellent guide.,well informed and very entertaining.. she went out of her way to help us and we were delighted with our experience She also got us the last table in the cafe landtmann.. a remarkable achievement given the crowded conditions Brenda is a treasure! Mark our driver was most accommodating even lending me his hat when I got cold!
Everything was highly organised. The tour guide was very well educated and very keen to reply to all the questions. I wish I had the ride on my first day to the city. It would have helped a lot to my overall experience on the next days
We thought the driving portion of the tour was a bit rushed and the German and English commentary often left the English comments until the landmark had passed.
This was an excellent tour and good value. Mr Charles our guide was exceptional and made the tour very worthwhile. His knowledge about Vienna was outstanding.
