Opera of Vienna Guided Tour
Ranked #18 of 127 Tours in Vienna
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 10 July 2014

The tour is very disappointing and not worthwhile. The tour is broken down into different languages but with several guides speaking at once in different languages, it is hard to hear your guide. The guide I had spoke softly and several,people complained that they couldn't hear. The Opera house itself is not as opulent as expected (as compared to the one in Budapest) and the tour guide was not very interesting. My advise is either go to an opera or a concert there and see the Opera house that way.

There is not much to see if you are not an opera lover. There is a fee to enter but if you are ready to watch the opera standing, and have a walk inside the opera, then you can buy a ticket for 3-4 euros just one hour before the opera starts. The nearest metro is Karsplatzt.

I cannot say enough about the opera house. The acoustics were phenomenal without microphones. The little LCD bar with language translations in front of each seat made it even more enjoyable. We saw one of Mozarts lesser known operas and thoroughly enjoyed it. This was an experience of a lifetime.

The guided tour is worthwhile and very interesting.
It takes about 45 min. At the time we were there, there were 2 tours a day, at
2pm and 3pm; well organised also, even with a lot of people, they split up
in smaller groups.

Like the title says there wasn't too much to see during this tour. I would have liked to have seen some changing rooms and was a little disappointed. The tour guide was very nice and had a lot of information about the Opera house however. The stage was impressive and far bigger than I expected but I still expected the seating area to be far larger. I definitely recommend visiting the Opera house to see an actual opera, but this tour wasn't really worth the admission.
