Nice Tour with Knowledgeable Guide

We enjoyed the palace tour and were given ample free time to roam the grounds after. We were a little disappointed it wasn't an English language only tour.

Great if you don't want to spend all day

Good option if you just want a fairly quick tour with a good guide who knows his stuff. The palace and gardens are lovely but you won't have a huge amount of time there. The palace tour is informative for sure and you also get some background and information on sights along the way while on the bus.

Lack of customer service

It was cool to see the palace but our tour guide was rude overall. She had a lot of good info but how rude she was to me and others took away from the experience.

Save your sanity and time and skip the line. This tour is worth every cent. Knowledgeable guide, too. And the bus tour is a great way to get to know the city when you arrive as a first time visitor.

Smart way to visit the palace

This is the best way to enjoy the Schönnberg Palace. Even in February, there were lines and crowds. Skip the line is worth every cent. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and funny. The bus tour was a good way to get one’s bearings on a first-time visit to Vienna.

Beautiful snow covered Palace

This tour was fantastic. We received a lot of information from the guide on the way to the Palace as well as a wonderful guided tour inside the Palace. We were given a lot of free time to explore the garden which we absolutely loved seeing covered in a light layer of snow. Highly recommend this tour.

Excellent, well organised excursion. From the pick up on a first class coach, to the guides giving informative and interesting commentary right through to the tour of the palace the whole event was top class.
