  • Great for first-time visitors to get their bearings of the city
What to Expect
Your Vienna tour begins by meeting at a prearranged central location. Being in a small group means having better access to your guide, if you have any questions. The day gives you insights into Vienna's fascinating history and the royal Habsburg dynasty. Visit the Imperial Palace, Imperial Apartments, Outer Gate, and Hero Square. If you're a museum fan, you'll enjoy seeing MuseumsQuartier, the Art History Museum, the Natural History Museum, and Albertina Museum. Vienna has many beautiful squares and you'll take in St. Michael's Square, St. Stephen's Square, and Josef's Square. Afterwar, learn about Vienna during World War II and see Parliament, City Hall, Imperial Treasury, and the National Library. See more than 20 attractions, including the State Opera House, New Market, Spanish Riding School, and the Imperial Crypt. Hear about famous Vienna residents, architecture, history, and legends, such as the one about Sissi’s diamonds.

Our guide was prompt, knowledgeable and patient. He maintained a steady pace but not too fast. He gave a great blueprint so we could plan more in-depth activities.

I bet there is a minimum of 2 people that must sign up for the tour and you might be the very first person to sign up. I imagine that more people will have signed up in a few months and you will be able to book. We booked... More
