    Good guide. Beautiful Palace and Gardens , quite a short tour inside but we saw the key rooms with whispers so you could hear the guide all the time which was good as it was a very large group. CIty tour was from the coach and delivered in 3 languages on our trip. The place tour was in English only.

    The city tour was very nice. Passed many beautiful buildings, which was also neatly told in the bus. The gardens at Schönbrun were very disappointing. Poorly maintained, long grass, weeds everywhere and the design of the gardens was unspectacular. The exterior of Schönbrun is not the most beautiful building in Vienna, you have many nicer buildings. Inside it was very nice to see everything. Too bad you are not allowed to take pictures or videos.

    Overall very informative. Exactly what we signed. To get great facts on Vienna the city as well as inside the palace. Which we did. The guide was excellent, but his voice is drawing and makes people sleepy as we did before we reached the palace and after on the way back. He was informative nevertheless.
