Description:

We have been organising city tours and trips in & around Vienna since 1972. Our aim is to show tourists the beauty of Vienna and its surrounding areas.

As market leader we stand for excellent organisation, personal service and a vast variety of interesting tours.

Experienced TOUR guides & tours in many different languages

Our TOUR guides are certified, they speak several languages and have been working for us for many years.

Our programme includes numerous TOURS in & around Vienna, as well as to Salzburg, Budapest, Prague and Bratislava. The majority of tours are offered in German, English and Spanish. Some tours can also be booked in French, Italian, Japanese and Russian.

HOP ON HOP OFF bus tour

Apart from the huge number of TOURS, we offer a HOP ON HOP OFF service with more than 50 stops throughout Vienna.

Along the 6 HOP ON HOP OFF lines you will find many popular tourist attractions of Vienna: Schonbrunn Palace, Hofburg (former emperor's palace), Vienna State Opera, Prater (leisure park), Giant Ferris Wheel, Belvedere Palace and many more. Our special bonus: with one ticket you can hop on or hop off as often as you like.

In addition to our coach tours, we offer boat cruises on the Danube and the Danube canal in cooperation with the DDSG Blue Danube as well as a ride in a horse-drawn carriage through the city center. Moreover, each HOP ON HOP OFF ticket includes a free guided walking tour.

VIP SERVICE for individual city tours

Our special VIP SERVICE has been created for guests that are seeking an individual city tour. We plan the tour programme for you, organise a limousine or luxury minibus, book tickets for cultural events and arrange inside visits of tourist attractions in your native language.

This is not a 24 hour bus and the times are very limited, especially in winter.. If you're able to miraculously follow all routes in one day it's probably worth it. However, we missed the only two connections to the Green Route and felt cheated as a result. The timing to get onto the Green Route is extremely limited with... More

This bus tour worked as a way to orient my wife to Vienna, since we live nearby. I am not crazy about tours in general, but this one wasn't bad. It was in both English and French, and about the right length to see major buildings in the city center, Schoenbrunn Palace, and the Belvedere Palace grounds. I was generally... More

We found that the routes these tours took were too long. We wasted a lot of time having to go to places that didn't interest us. Our time in Vienna was limited and we were unable to get to all the things we wanted to see. The buses were infrequent. There was a 40 minute wait between some buses- not... More

Hello Margaret, First of all thank you for your feedback. We are really sorry that the route didn't come up to your expectations. Indeed, during summer we have more frequent buses due to higher demand. We are sorry that you spent some time waiting for the next bus. Best regards, Lisa Frühbauer More

My earbuds didn't work at my seat, had to share with someone else - they're throwaways but really hurt my ears. The route is OK, but if you go with a few people, I think it's best to do private

The City Tour & Schönbrunn Palace tour was ok but there were a few issues with it, which I will get to later. The first part of the tour involved a bus ride around the ringstraße, with the guide commenting on the various buildings we passed. We then moved on to Schönbrunn Palace for a whistle stop tour.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
