What people are saying about Schönbrunn Palace Vienna

hat was just a fantastic tour with a very knowledgeable guide Ute. I totally recommend it to anyone who is visiting Vienna and wants to know many interesting facts which you will not find in a booklet. The car was comfortable, clean and the driver was also funny. Everything was great organized and we saw many sights of Vienna. The absolute top of the for me was visiting Belvedere Palace which is very charming and not overcrowded. In the past I used to take part in group tours but now I understand the value of private tours. As there were only 2 of us we had a great conversation with the Guide and we were talking about the things which are interesting for me and my partner. Totally recommend to anyone!

We had the chance to spend the day with our guide Evy. She is incredible, she is a well of knowledge! Moreover, we had a lot of fun, Evy's anecdotes and good humor were a delight for us. We let ourselves be carried through History, Art, Music and Architecture.... a shot of happiness for the neurons, Thank you Evy! 100% recommended activity!

We decided to visit Vienna during our vacation, but we only had 1 day. So we did this tour and it was an amazing choice. Well organized, many sights, tickets for Schönbrunn Palace, private guide, driver - everything is great. From start to finish we were excited and happy to meet the guide Ute. Thanks for this day.
