What people are saying about Hofburg Palace

We really enjoyed our experience seeing the horses and riders.

The observation we would like to make that there was no information near the entrances into the arena. We arrived with what we thought was our seat ticket. Having stood in a queue for awhile to then be told we had to go all the way around to the ticket office to get our proper tickets. On arrival there it was very very busy and very very hot! We then queue again, got our tickets and went back to the side entrance, where we queued again. When we got to the young man checking tickets he could tell us we had to go around to the other side to go up to the gallery. Around the other side were 3 entrances which did not clearly show the correct entrance into the arena. So after a couple of attempts we found the right one and then eventually went up to find our seats. It was an extremely hot day and lots of visitors also finding it difficult to find where they should be. Please put up some posters telling visitors where to go, it would save a lot of time and effort for a lot of people. Thankyou

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.

Vienna Spanish Riding School Guided Tour Reviewed by Caroline, 09/10/2019

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.

The best city tour- uncomplicated, funny, enjoyable

This particular tour is nice and different... Easy to understand, funny, witty, and above all- entertains. Wolfgang was able to break down very complicated Austrian history into parts that can be easily digested. I would have no reservations what’s so ever recommending this tour to others and I hope to do it again whenever I am in Vienna. Wolfgang (not Wolfe the George...), the tour guide is simply the best! Thank you!

Very complicated process for obtaining the ticket that was prepaid.

Very complicated process for obtaining the ticket that has been already payed. 30 minutes going from a line to others and back to get a new ticket even though that I had the paper ticket.
