It's fine. Leave it until you're there and you'll pay about 21 euro, check out offers in advance and you can get tickets for about £9. For that you get a reasonable trip around... read more

Guide, Ahmad Samir Sabri was extremely helpful on points of interest/must see with our limited 6hrs in Vienna for the day! Great advice, loved the city and saw so much more because of your friendly, knowledgable and helpful nature :-)

While not originally a fan of doing a Big Red Bus tour I'm glad my wife talked me into doing it! Not only is a great way to get an overall feel for the city, but more importantly, it allows you to find great reference points for when you're out walking. Extremely helpful! Plus, a little added extra is that... More

It's fine. Leave it until you're there and you'll pay about 21 euro, check out offers in advance and you can get tickets for about £9. For that you get a reasonable trip around central Vienna with commentary and the ability, over 24 hours to use the service as a taxi visiting several prime sites. This company operates two routes,...

The objective of most bus tours is to give you a good value guide to a city so that you can go back to explore certain sites afterwards. This fails. It is a rip off. As to the information - it is limited & politically correct. For example, there was no mention of the founding of the city in Roman... More

The tour was about 40 minutes too long. The bus driver is responsible for clicking a speaker that explains the location but our driver often didn't get it right so we were listening to one thing and seeing another. Weird.

They were reasonable, 15 euro for a 1.5 hr tour of the city. I needed some help identifying landmarks & getting a sense of direction and they helped me with that. You wear headphones in your language on an open air bus. Good thing to look up on arrival.

This was the only real let down in an otherwise delightful trip to Vienna. Not only is the tour poorly constructed, the audio guide in English is out of sync - meaning I'd often hear 'to your left you can see....' only to turn left and catch a glimpse of the attraction as the bus had already passed it.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
