Vienna tours

Any good tours for couple of hours one would recommend in Vienna. Seems like Red Bus and Hop on Hop off all getting negative reviews. Or is it better just purchase a 72 hour metro pass and do our own?

Do it on your own. The city is very easy to navigate using public transportation. Get a good guide book or seach Trip Advisor and figure out where you want to go, then just go! Look at all the 'Top Questions' on the top/right of this page for some additional info. You will have a blast!

Get a city map and walk around the center would take you a good half day!

Do your own ring tram trip (not the rip-off yellow "Ring Tram" for tourists). I'd recommend starting outside the parliament building and taking tram number 1 towards Prater Hauptallee, alighting at Schwedenplatz and changing onto a tram number 2 towards Ottakringer Straße and you will land up outside the parliament again. The ride offers a showcase of many of the city's beautiful buildings and helps give you a sense of where everything is. It's great to do by night as well. Here's a link to a map of the tram lines so it makes a little more sense: http://web.student.tuwien.ac.at/~e1025108/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Liniennetz-Wien-Tram_20131215.pdf

With only two hours you won't leave the central area. With much of that pedestrianised walking is easily your best option with possibly, as previously mentioned, a non-commercial circuit of the Ringstrasse by tram.
