This is the best hop on/off experience I have had. The Red Route was exceptional for understanding the urban architecture and history of Vienna, the Blue Route was a great historical overview of Vienna's royals. The cruise was a wonderful add on. It was a great way to relax, have lunch for locals and visitors and learn more about Vienna.

Price wise, excellent, save a few penny having this deluxe package. Night tour was very informative and Charles our tour guide was funny. All stops are easy to find and accessible. River cruise was very relaxing, so different from other river cruiseof other European cities I'd been to. Unfortunately i did not try city walking tour, as I have no spare time. Highly recommended.

The tours were inherently good, although the bus tour was nearly 2 hours and it was 30+ degrees - not great! The walking tour was OK but the guide's English was quite difficult to understand. The boat trip was nice as it was relaxing and after the two previous tours (but and walking) it was nice to just be still. THE most stressful part was trying to work out; what, where, when, who to meet etc. etc. I literally had sleepless nights! The last thing I wanted was to be stuck abroad, speaking only passable German and not knowing where I supposed to be in a capital city and not knowing who to ask - stressful!
