Waiter was a bit grumpy, when he saw we had a voucher for lunch. Food was very tasty and beer and wine was good too. Would be good to know that card payments were 15 Euros or more. Lucky I had a 10 Euro in my purse! Trip was quite poor, went up and back the same route. Only 3 or 4 buildings listed and so much graffiti art, not what we expected for Vienna.

The tour offers an alternative way to see Vienna. Suitable above all for those who appreciate murals and architecture. If you intend to eat during the tour, it is best to include it in your ticket as the kitchen may not cater to last minute requests. We had bought the tour with a schnitzel and we didn't regret it, even if we were afraid of not finding a place to eat comfortably given the number of participants. It would have been better if those who had to have lunch already had reserved seats.

The trip was wonderful. Nice sunshine 15 Aug. 2022. Calm lime green water to sail on. Nice green to look at. Ok buildings and life to see around us. We also saw Hundertwasser buildings on the way. We could have sailed at 14.30, but arrived too late. We left at 16:00 instead. But be careful on your departure. Our trip at DKK 330 per adult approx., without ordering food, could have been longer if we arrived at 2.30pm and not at 4.00pm. A bit of a cheat if you don't see it immediately on their website.
