    It was ok.Definitely a guide is needed for Schonbrunn (in my opinion) but since the rooms got crowded too quickly I found the information provided a bit superficial(since we could spend a limited amount of time in a room).I would give a 4.5 if I was able.

    The boat tour was exactly on time and we could sit on the outside or inside the boat. We sat inside and had a great view of the river and surrounding buildings. The menu is reasonable. Overall it was a very relaxing experience.

    Was kinda interesting cruise with nice food and drink options. A smooth, romantic trip through the wonderful Danube. The boat was well heated and big enough to allow you move and take pictures from different areas. The only drawbacks would be the commentary which should've been done using audio devices instead of the loud speakers, and also the lengthy time we spent in the small river bank twice waiting for the bridge to open.

The ships are beautiful restaurant ships that sail both the Vienna Danube Canal and the great Danube. During the tour you will pass through two locks, a process that takes about 20 minutes each time. The tours are carried out with both the French designed MS Vindobona, which is now one of the sights of Vienna (departure 11:30 and 15:00) and the MS Wien, which has a large outdoor deck (departure 10:30 and 14:00). Both ships are air conditioned. The food is freshly prepared on board, the Schnitzel of course tapped, breaded and ...

    Highly recommend the full 3.5 hour tour over the 1.5. You see a lot more of the Danube and the 1.5 spends a good 1/3 of the time in one of the locks. Don't bother with the food, bring your own and grab seats in the front of the boat for the best views.
