We have been organising city tours and trips in & around Vienna since 1972. Our aim is to show tourists the beauty of Vienna and its surrounding areas.

As market leader we stand for excellent organisation, personal service and a vast variety of interesting tours.

Experienced TOUR guides & tours in many different languages

Our TOUR guides are certified, they speak several languages and have been working for us for many years.

Our programme includes numerous TOURS in & around Vienna, as well as to Salzburg, Budapest, Prague and Bratislava. The majority of tours are offered in German, English and Spanish. Some tours can also be booked in French, Italian, Japanese and Russian.

HOP ON HOP OFF bus tour

Apart from the huge number of TOURS, we offer a HOP ON HOP OFF service with more than 50 stops throughout Vienna.

Along the 6 HOP ON HOP OFF lines you will find many popular tourist attractions of Vienna: Schonbrunn Palace, Hofburg (former emperor's palace), Vienna State Opera, Prater (leisure park), Giant Ferris Wheel, Belvedere Palace and many more. Our special bonus: with one ticket you can hop on or hop off as often as you like.

In addition to our coach tours, we offer boat cruises on the Danube and the Danube canal in cooperation with the DDSG Blue Danube as well as a ride in a horse-drawn carriage through the city center. Moreover, each HOP ON HOP OFF ticket includes a free guided walking tour.

VIP SERVICE for individual city tours

Our special VIP SERVICE has been created for guests that are seeking an individual city tour. We plan the tour programme for you, organise a limousine or luxury minibus, book tickets for cultural events and arrange inside visits of tourist attractions in your native language.

This tour exceeded my expectations! Austria is a truly beautiful country. This was my first time in Vienna and it will not be my last. I came to Austria to visit the country that my great great grandmother called home before moving to Brazil. This tour really give me a sense of what it is like to live in Austria... More

Took the tour upon arriving in Vienna. Boarded the bus next to the Hilton Vienna (Stadtpark), where I was staying for the night. The yellow line itself was sufficient to cover most of the more popular sights such as Vienna State Opera, Schönbrunn Palace, Belvedere Palace, Hofburg Palace, St. Stephen's Cathedral. Managed to cover 5 of the attractions in about... More

First the big plus point. We had access to four separate tour lines covering most of Vienna’s main tourist sites over 72 hours for a good-value 29.5 euros each (if booked online in advance). Never had to wait at stops for very long, plenty of seats on the top deck and staff friendly and efficient. Less good is the fact... More

You can easily ignore their audio guide. Check the timetables of the longer routes, some take too long. Don't go on the boat ride, just don't, trust me. Use them as an alternative to the public transport. Try asking them for directions or advice, maybe you'll have more luck and get a helpful or friendly response.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
