“Sort of disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

I wasn't sure what to expect other than a trolly ride around the old city and that is what I got for 8 euros. They had headsets you wore to listen to the recorded program.

“Great Rainy Day Ride”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Operates on a half hour schedule. Various fares / time lengths - we took the 30 min version for 7 Euros. Comes with an audio guide, but 30 mins was a bit quick paced. Good for a very general overview. They also have on / off fares where you can use it at your leisure over the course of a day.

“Not the best tour”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

I booked a hop on hop off tour outside the Opera house, that was an hour and saw a lot of attractions and buildings, I was able to use the bus all day. I then booked a tram tour, it is called "tram circle". This lasted for 30 minutes, I saw exactly the same as the hop on tour, but less. It was quite boring, and not good value for money. Use the hop on all day tour and see far more.

“Great way to see some of Vienna's lovely buildings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

We actually did this at the end of our visit to Vienna (we would normally do a tour at the beginning). It was 7 € each which includes headphones for the commentary (available in many languages) and a screen showing the sites you were looking for. It followed a 'ring' road and luckily showed us many beautiful buildings and parks we hadn't visited e.g the parliament building. You can get off and on if you wish but we just did the round then hopped onto the underground.
