Vienna: 2-Hour Walking Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 2 hours
Per group up to 2
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.
Enjoyed our time with this tour. Getting around with a guide to fill in the history made a difference. We enjoyed being active instead of sitting on a bus. This tour is an easy ride for all fitness levels. We had a senior on the tour and there was no problem for them to ride with the pack. There were enough appropriate stops to take photos and hear about the history of important landmarks. Please if you enjoyed your tour, tip the guide. We were the only ones to tip on this tour. This may be due to cultural tipping habits of local countries.
Our guide, Herbert, was very knowledgeable and showed great interest in the history of Vienna. A very good tour of the back streets of the city centre. Herbert was easy to chat with, which was helped by the small size of our group.
Horst, our guide, was awesome! He took us around the city showing us many of the major sites in Vienna with rather humorous stories to go along with each of the sites. Given the chance, I would definitely do the tour again!
Wolfgang was very informative!! The tour was great. I am glad I read reviews about bringing water. Make sure you bring a hydration pack. You will need more than just a bottle.
