What people are saying about Spanish Riding School

Fantastic way to see Vienna’s favourite landmarks and historical sites/buildings. A bonus that the wonderful driver stopped and waited for us to see the original painting of The Last Supper at the church! Highly recommended so that you can better plan your visits around Vienna.

The booking was easy and the meeting point was easy to find. The tour with the e-bus was very pleasant! My guide answered my questions very nicely. For this detailed, competent tour through the beautiful, first district, there is of course the best rating!

The 45' tour through Vienna was very exciting and gave us a good first overview. Our driver was very concerned about our well-being (cleaning the windows due to rain, offering blankets, etc.). He conducted the tour with wit and excitement.

Super driver und gute Erlebnisse hat uns bestens gefallen, gerne wieder Gernot
