    What people are saying about Vienna

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Fun, interesting ride around central Vienna
    This was a three-hour ride around central Vienna. The guide stopped at many of the city’s significant sites and gave us a great overview of historical Vienna and today’s Vienna. Her explanations were both understandable and entertaining. The pace of the ride was easy, and the guide made sure that no one was left behind. Much of the ride was on dedicated bike lanes or where there was little car traffic, so there was never any feeling of being unsafe. It did rain while we were on the tour, but the guide had us take shelter in a little cafe on the Judenplatz where we had hot drinks. Luckily the rain subsided after about 15 minutes and we were on our way. My wife and I agree that this bike tour was a highlight of our time in Vienna.

    A brilliant day, marvellous food, accompanied in the evening with a musician. As English speakers with limited German, we were a bit worried that we wouldn’t get the most out of a German-speaking tour, but they translated some of the descriptions into English and we were able to book ahead for an English tour in Bratislava when on the boat. We met a lovely Austrian couple who spoke good English too and so spent the day chatting with them too. Would thoroughly recommend this trip

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ One of the world’s greatest horse experiences.
    The Lipizzaners can live until the age of 24 so there is a mix of young horses in training and older fully trained on show. That also applies to riders and makes it interesting to witness the different development stages. Initially, it may seem repetitive but the longer you can stay the more meaningful it becomes. Highly recommended.

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Interesting to observe how the training session is organized.
    The arena was very busy. The ticket advised staying 20 minutes. However many people stayed much longer making it difficult to find a place where a good view could be accessed. I feel some management by the facility is needed to make observation more accessible and fairer.
