Overall rating

4.7 / 5

based on 280 reviews

Overall the pass was a wonderful option allowing us to decide what to see and when. The staff was wonderful and very helpful and provided some ideas on getting around which attractions were close to each other. The only thing I would say is make sure on day of arrival get there early to get your pass. We got there the day before but about an hour after 12 so we could not get our passes.

Excellent commentary and description by our guide put the Habsburg dynasty in perspective. Our guide, Ute, brought people and events to life for a fascinating experience. Would highly recommend this tour!

Tour guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating with us. It was great to have a private tour so we could go at our own pace.


Excellent. Very interesting and informative. A must do for any visitor.
