This tour is the perfect introduction to Vienna. As it's a small-group tour, you'll have a more personal experience, being able to ask your guide questions along the way. Your guide will help you beat the crowds, and take you to the city's highlights such as Hero Square, and Parliament. You'll learn about history, culture, the best places to eat and drink, and get some local insider secrets too.
What to Expect

Your Vienna tour begins by meeting at a pre-arranged central location. Being in a small-group means having better access to your guide if you have any questions. The day will give you an insight into Vienna's fascinating history, and the royal Habsburg dynasty. You'll visit Imperial Palace, Imperial Apartments, Outer Gate, and Hero Square. If you're a museum fan, you'll enjoy seeing Museum Quarter, the Museum of Arts History, the Natural History Museum, and Albertina Museum. 

Vienna has lots of beautiful squares and you'll visit St. Michael's Square, St. Stephen's Square, and Josef's Square. Learn about Vienna during WW2 and see Parliament, City Hall, Imperial Treasury, and the National Library. Cultural fans will enjoy State Opera House, and you'll also visit New Market, Spanish Riding Square, learn about Sissi's diamonds, and Emporer's Crypt. You'll see 20+ attractions while being told about famous residents, architecture, and history.

Very Informative in history of Vienna

Our guide, Herbert, was extremely knowledgeable on the history of Vienna, it’s people and rulers. Our family of four happened to be the only ones on the tour on this particular day and time, which made it feel like a very personalized experience.
