Private History & Art City Tour of Vienna

Enjoy the superb service and personal atmosphere of what is probably Vienna’s best city tour: your licensed tour guide meets you at your hotel and takes you on an extensive 3-hour sightseeing tour covering the very best of Vienna's history and art. A minivan or a luxury limousine with chauffeur is at your service throughout the entire tour.

Having a separate guide and chauffeur ensures the best service and maximum flexibility: Hop off the car any time you wish with your guide while car and chauffeur wait for you. Your guide can give you his full attention with your chauffeur ensuring a smooth and comfortable ride.

This is a fully-guided tour focusing extensively on Vienna's history, lifestyle and art. If you are just looking for an easy way to get to the sights and can do without the services of a licensed tour guide please check out our Private Hop-On Hop-Off City Tour of Vienna.

First of all you drive along the famous Ring boulevard. Marvel at the impressive buildings in the style of Historism constructed under Emperor Franz Josef, like the State Opera House, the Museum of Fine Art, the Parliament, the City Hall, the Court Theatre and the University. On Heroe's Square you can take pictures of the vast complex of the Imperial Palace. The former residence of the Habsburgs boasts over 2.600 rooms!

Leaving the city center you get to the Danube area with the United Nations buildings and the Danube Tower. You also visit the nearby Prater amusement park with the world-famous Giant Ferris Wheel.

On the way to the Schönbrunn Palace you pass other sights like the City Park with the famous golden statue of Johann Strauss, St. Charles’ church and the concert hall of the Musikverein.

The visit of Schoenbrunn Palace and grounds (Unesco World Heritage) is another highlight of this tour. The former summer residence of the Habsburgs is Austria's number one tourist attraction. Take your time to marvel at the impressive palace and visit the amazing gardens. Skip the line: If you would like to include a private guided tour of the showrooms we will reserve your tickets in advance, so you don't have to wait in line.

Other optional stops on this tour include the Belvedere Palace and the Kahlenberg hill with its fantastic city views. The tour ends back at your hotel.

Decide for yourself where to stop and how much time you wish to spend at each location. Your knowledgeable guide shares intriguing stories and anecdotes with you and is ready to respond to (almost) your every request and requirement. Your chauffeur knows the best routes and shortcuts.

Lots of photo opportunities!
