What people are saying about Vienna

Nothing too exciting but an insight of how the horses are cared for

We visited the stables after we had seen the show, there was a wait in the main entrance where other people were also queuing up for other events so it got busy at times. We were grouped with a good English speaking guide and taken into the arena and then around the main stable block, we were asked NOT to take photos and were only permitted to in the tack room. We were able to see the horses feed in their individual stables and the guide gave us a brief commentary about the horses answering questions as we walked through, you kind of got the feeling that we were in the way as the grooms were trying to go about their daily routine with groups of people standing around. Under no circumstances were you allowed to touch the horses, but the experience overall was interesting and informative.

Fun, interesting ride around central Vienna

This was a three hour ride around central Vienna. The guide stopped at many of the city's significant sites and gave us a great overview of historical Vienna and today's Vienna. Her explanations were both understandable and entertaining. The pace of the ride was easy, and the guide made sure that no one was left behind. Much of the ride was on dedicated bike lanes or where there was little car traffic, so there was never any feeling of being unsafe. It did rain while we were on the tour, but the guide had us take shelter in a little cafe on the Judenplatz where we had hot drinks. Luckily the rain subsided after about 15 minutes and we were on our way. My wife and I agree that this bike tour was a highlight of our time in Vienna.

Classic Vienna: 3-Hour Guided Bike Tour Reviewed by Gary, 06/10/2019

Great Value day trip with Good Food and service

This proved to be the High-spot of our trip to Venice. It well exceeded our expectations. Breakfast, Lunch and a 4 course evening meal and an afternoon serving of Strudel and an opportunity to experience Bratislava ! The boat is comfortable with good service and help-full staff. It is remarkable value for money and we would thoroughly recommend it. 2 points to note - its a long day 0830 - 2230 but well worth it. The only downside were the English directions to the boat- which are not very clear. You need to get to Nusdorf on the tram/bus and then look for the signs to the MS Kaiserin Elisabeth.

Vienna to Bratislava Full-Day Danube Boat Tour with Meals Reviewed by Catherine Jayne, 20/09/2019

A brilliant day, marvellous food, accompanied in the evening with a musician. As English speakers with limited German we were a bit worried that we wouldn’t get the most out of a German speaking tour, but they translated some of the descriptions into English and we were able to book ahead for an English tour in Bratislava when on the boat. We met a lovely Austrian couple who spoke good English too and so spent the day chatting with them too. Would thoroughly recommend this trip

Fascinating insight into a slice of history

Well paced walking tour with very informed guide (Wolfgang, the day we did it). Gave a real context to the political and economic situation in and around Vienna in the first part of the 20th century, illustrated in some of the places where events occurred. No justification of Hitler, an attempt to explain some of what influenced him/what he took advantage of. Moving to visit the Holocaust Memorial.
