The tour was good

The guide was knowledgeable even though it came across as the routine story. It went very fast. The English pronunciation was good and therefore her information was easy to follow. The tour of the park was limited to walking together to the corner of the gardens, handing out a map and saying goodbye to the guide. A pity, because in the end it was just a tour of the castle. For the price paid, I also expected a little more from the information in the gardens, as promised. So I would not recommend this tour to friends. Finally: At the information desk of Schönbrunn Castle people did not know my E-ticket when I asked where we had to collect. No, this is not a ticket for the lock, said the desk clerk.
