There is a lot of walking involved to see all the sights, so why not let us introduce you to Vienna on our optional guided sightseeing tour?

We begin by coach, where we will be taken along the Imperial Boulevard known as the Ringstrasse. Here you will see the Hofburg Palace, the Parliament building, the Opera House, National Theatre and City Hall.

During our tour, we will also see the majestic Danube River, and later as we pass by the Prater amusement park, a chance to view the famous “Giant Wheel” built over 100 years ago, and today one of the most well-known landmarks of the city.

There will be frequent stops during the drive, where you will have photo opportunities and the chance to admire Vienna at its very best.
