We took the city tour that was a great introduction to the city right after our arrival and the Schonbrunn tour that was very good as well. It took as through the castle and the gardens.

Beautiful story of a woman in her palace
Aug 2020 • Couples
The way Petra (the guide) told the story was just fascinating! The castle itself we didn't find it extremely beautiful compared to other castles, but we were particularly immersed in the experience thanks to the guide and the way she engaged into telling us the story.

Good value
Feb 2020
Pre-booked this from the UK online. Very efficient process for admission and for the guide talking to group through an earpiece. Our guide (Katrinn) was very knowledgeable and answered all questions thoroughly. After the house took us to the gardens and gave a briefing on these too. We were lucky to have a beautiful sunny day which helped.

Edi was the tour guide and did a wonderful job. The Austrian history surrounding this palace was most impressive with the 16th century empire taking in most of Europe, Mexico and a fairly large chunk of South America

Excellent tour and very knowledgeable guide
Feb 2020
The tour was fantastic. Eddie was very knowledgeable and very professional. He was very attentive to everyone in the group and ensured we were all comfortable. The inside of the palace is stunning. It is exactly how I would imagine it to be in the time of Emperors and Kings. We had about 20 in the group and there is so much to see. When you are on a time schedule the guide must keep the group moving. Eddie did a great job and kept it at a moderate pace so everyone could enjoy the decor. If someone complains that it's too fast, perhaps they can pay a lot more for a self-guided tour but you really miss out on having a person with knowledge available to answer questions. The tour was perfect. Thank you Eddie.
