THE PERFECT OVERVIEW OF VIENNA
Discover the city’s sights on an exciting bus tour spiced up with a host of tales and anecdotes! Alternatively, make the most of the last minutes of your valuable time in Vienna!
Whether you choose a limousine / minivan / motor coach … your customized, private tour in my company is going to be the definitely most energy saving and most rewarding way to see a maximum of Vienna!
No matter which programme you choose, there are always plenty of opportunities to take a short walk, stop for photos or for a toilet break.
ENTHUSIASTIC. ENTERTAINING. REVEALING.
Just let me know when and where you would like to begin and end your tour. I’ll be pleased to take you door-to-door!
- from / to the airport Vienna-International (Wien-Schwechat)
- from / to all ship docking stations of the Vienna passenger terminal DDSG (Handelskai)
- from / to all train stations in Vienna
- from / to your hotel / office / club house / headquarters in Vienna
The time spent travelling between the two addresses of your choice can be put to good use, because any direction you are heading, there are plenty of sights that you shouldn’t pass by without at least being made aware of and there are many opportunities to give you lots of useful information for your stay in or your next trip to Vienna.
It is the probably most comfortable way to take your luggage straight to your hotel / to the airport in comfort while making new cultural discoveries before your holiday has even really got started.
LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT IN
THE MOST COMFORTABLE WAY
Drive along Vienna’s most famous boulevard, the Ringstraße, with a view of the State Opera House, the Academy of Fine Arts, the court gardens, the Fine Arts Museum, the Museum of Natural History, the Parliament, the Town Hall, the Volksgarten, the National Theatre, the University of Vienna, the Votive Church, Otto Wagner’s post office savings bank, the Museum of Applied Arts, the Stadtpark and much, much more.
Moving slightly further afield, you can gain an overview of the city’s real dimensions with its four different arms of the Danube, the Prater, the seat of the United Nations and the Belvedere Palace.
Before you get too comfortable in the coach, I suggest that we stop off at the Hundertwasserhaus to take some photos, perhaps go for a stroll through the historic gardens of the Belvedere palace, wander through the numerous inner courtyards of the Hofburg palace OR walk back to the bus from St. Stephens cathedral through the narrow medieval lanes of the inner city.
VIENNA BY NIGHT
Experience the beautifully illuminated Ringstraße with its magnificent buildings by night! Take a moonlight walk with me along cobbled streets and through the inner courtyards of the Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ winter residence.
This tour can be combined with a ride on the Giant Ferris Wheel and/or a trip up the Kahlenberg from where you can enjoy a stunning panoramic view of the city in a sea of lights.
Round off the evening with a glass of wine (I would suggest a local vintage, either a “Wiener Gemischter Satz” or a “Zweigelt”) in one of the popular wine taverns, or perhaps a cocktail at a bar along the Danube Canal.
FULL MOBILITY WITHOUT BARRIERS
I’d be pleased to arrange a minivan which offers accessibility for wheelchairs (foldable ramp or automatically operating wheelchair-lift and wheelchair securement), to book a horse-drawn carriage ride for us in a specially converted, wheelchair-accessible fiacre or to make sure that the wheeled walker (rollator) is kept safely at the fiacre rank during our horse-and-carriage ride.
Over the past 20 years, many streets and squares in Vienna have been fitted with flat pavers, making them “rollable” noiselessly and comfortably. There is no shortage of curb drops for barrier-free crossings; many streets have been raised to one level (no curbs at all) and the number of public toilets that are accessible without barriers has increased. Therefore, the more and more cultural highlights are accessible to users of canes, wheeled walkers (rollators) and wheelchairs who want to treat their wrists, backs and hips as well as the ones of their carers with respect.
I have got more than 20 years of experience in finding the most suitable way for sightseeing / sightlistening & sightenjoying for you (rental car, minivan, public transport, fiacre, ice cream parlour, sidewalk café, park bench, pew …) because story-telling and having fun can be done anywhere and at any pace!
Tell me which one of your ears is particularly sensitive to funny anecdotes or to what extent your eyes get support from your other senses! Vienna has set itself the goal of becoming the smartest city in the world. Some museums offer touchable exhibits, and I like to guide in any mobility with lots of gestures and full of spirits.
On my tours there is no one left behind who doesn’t specifically ask for it!
