Our guide was fantastic and the bike tour was a wonderful way to see a lot of sights in one day. Vienna is super bike friendly, so we felt very safe riding on the streets as well as in the bike lanes along with pedestrians. It's inspiring to see how well all modes of transport exist together- if only that way in the US!!!

Very nice. I strongly recommend the tour for groups of elderly people, smaller children, disabled (you cannot bring wheelchair) since the park area is enormous. The horses are well taken care of, the police close down if the weather is to hot them and the drivers nice and friendly.

We had a lot of fun while listening to the coachman's amusing anecdotes. This carriage ride is well suited for people who do not have enough time to explore the entire palace garden. You can see the highlights.

Our guide Jan has been very attentive and friendly at all times and a great connoisseur of the City and its history. 100% recommendable!

A wonderful Vienna tour with lots of exciting information!
