We recently went on a four hour Vienna a la Carte Tour of Vienna Woods, Heiligenkreuz and Mayerling. Our guide Irene was a veritable treasure trove of information about Vienna itself, the local region, Austrian history and the Austrian royal family. Whilst Ben very capably took care of the driving and navigation, Irene provided us with commentary on the region, the agriculture and the history as well as some of the local customs and food and wines of the area. The tours of both Heiligenkreuz and Mayerling were excellent, providing us with an amazing history lesson as well as a lot of interesting snippets of information regarding the history and development of both sites. This tour was the highlight of our trip to Vienna and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.

We did a 1.5 hr walking tour and a 4 hr Art and History Tour including the Schoennbrunn Palace with 3 teenage boys and Brenda as our guide. She was extremely knowledgable, passionate, helpful, friendly and fantastic with the kids. Ben was the driver and he was great too. The minivan even had iPads with internet connection on the back of the seats as well as complimentary water bottles. I can highly recommend them!

In a repeat trip to Vienna after 20 years , we booked a day trip to Salzburg with Vienna A La Carte. The entire experience met or exceeded our expectations. We were picked up on time at our hotel by Ben who very safely drove us to Salzburg thru the Lake Country. Along the way, Ben, who is an Australian expat gave us a knowledgable commentary about Austria and points of interest along the route. The van was roomy, clean, comfortable , and WiFi enabled. We were met in Salzburg by Naomi who was a very energetic representative of her city. We could have happily spent more time with her, but there were not enough hours in the day. I would definitely recommend this company and these individuals in particular and would not hesitate to use them again.

we had an amazing trip to Salzburg on 29th Nov. Our driver , Peter was very courteous and provided an excellent commentary during the entire trip. The Van is high roof, with very clean interiors. It actually reminded me of a business class seat on an airplane and each seat had an I-pad installed with internet connection. Since the group size is very small (we only had 6 including 3 of us), it gave us a private feel with our driver taking good care of the group. Because of the small size of the vehicle, we were able to take some detours to the village of St. Gilgen near Slazburg. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a more exclusive experience than the traditional bus tours with 45 people. Well done Peter and the entire crew!

Vienna A La Carte tours provided two tours for us as part of the International Travel Insurance Conference for a group of up to 120 participants. One of those tours was a complete City tour and the other a private tour of the Schoenbrunn Palace. The feedback that we have received from the delegates has been only 100% positive - the tour guides were experts in their fields, but above all extremely friendly and a pleasure to spend the tour time with. As part of the City tour, guests also had an inside tour of the St Stephens Cathedral which was most excellent. The tour is very well priced for the content and a must do for anyone visiting Vienna. A special thanks to Ulrich in the office, who could not be more helpful in assisting to create bespoke tours that are exactly matched to your requirements. I would make no hesitation in booking my tour groups with Vienna A La Carte in the future and I pass on many thanks to the team.
