Full description

See Vienna at your own pace with a 24-hour hop-on hop-off bus tour. From the open-air top deck, hear the stories of highlights like Hofburg Palace and Prater Amusement Park with audio commentary. Top it off with a relaxing cruise along the charming Danube River and an audio guide for the city.

Journey along the Red Route to experience historic sites like the Opera House, Museum Quarter, Hofburg Palace, Parliament, Town Hall, and the Danube Canal. Explore past the city center and towards Prater Amusement Park and find breathtaking views of the Vienna mountains, UNO City, and Danube Island.

On the Blue Route, start your tour in the city center and go discover Vienna's famous palaces. Gaze upon the regal Hofburg Palace before leaving the city to see Schönbrunn Palace, once a residence of the Habsburgs, and Belvedere Palace which houses an immense collection of Austrian artwork.

Climb aboard the sightseeing cruise included with your ticket and admire the "most livable city in the world" from the Danube River. Take in the picture-perfect scenes of modern life in a historic city that make Vienna unique.

After or in-between your tour, enjoy 1 of 3 audio guides and learn about the city. Marvel at the architectural history of the Opera House, St. Stephan's Cathedral, and more.

Red tour with boat trip: great bus tour. You can really save on shipping: the trip is from Schwedenplatz to Nussdorfer Schleuse and back (approx. 75 minutes).

We did the red and blue lines for tour. It was very informative. Would love to avail the Danube River cruise but the last trip was too early in my books- that’s why I can only give it a 4.
