Private Vienna Woods Tour from Vienna

(5 Reviews)
Duration:   04h 00 min


Sit back and relax while being chauffeured across the amazingly beautiful forested highlands west of Vienna. Your friendly driver and your private guide make sure that you don't miss out on any of the Vienna Woods' first-tier sights and natural wonders.

Your private guide picks you up from your hotel in Vienna in a chauffeur-driven minivan. After a short drive, you visit the scene of the famous tragedy of Mayerling. The Austrian crown-prince Rudolph and the 17-year old baroness Mary Vetschera committed suicide in the imperial hunting lodge in Mayerling in 1889. With your guide visit the commemorative chapel and the small museum with your guide (optional).

Driving west you quickly reach the medieval abbey of Heiligenkreuz. Beautifully situated within the Vienna Woods it is one of the highlights of this tour. With your guide visit the romanesque cloister, the fountain house and the chapter house with the coffin of the last ruler of the Babenberg family (admission is not included). It is also recommended to visit the amazing romanesque chapel.

Through the idyllic Helenental valley you finally reach the town of Baden and drive on to the romantic wine-town of Gumpoldskirchen. Stop for a glass of wine in one of the local wineries before driving back to the city. Your tour concludes at your hotel in Vienna.

Enjoy the great service and the personal atmosphere of this private tour: Your knowledgeable private guide and your chauffeur are ready to respond to (almost) your every request and requirement. Learn about the history and the sights and hear intriguing stories and anecdotes. Lots of photo opportunities!

Good, but average
We booked a private van and tour of the Vienna Woods, specifically to see Liechtenstein Castle and the Seegrotte. We only had a driver, no guide. The van was clean, the driver was friendly and helpful. We didn't hire an extra guide because our destinations didn't allow one. The company was very communicative during our planning process, and overall I was happy.

One of the best tours……
My wife and I, 2 other couples we travel with, and our Italian daugthers (former exchange students with us) spent 3 wonderful days last week with Brenda, as our guide, from Vienna A La Carte. Her scope of knowledge about Vienna and her playfulness & humor made this one of the best tours we have experienced. We did the Private History and Art Tour, the Danube Valley tour, and the Vienna Woods tour which she modified to include the Castle of the Princes of Liechtenstein. We all loved this change. We were the only Jewish couple and she made sure we knew about the Jewish history of the city and buildings.

Vienna Woods, Heiligenkreuz and Mayerling tour
We recently went on a four hour Vienna a la Carte Tour of Vienna Woods, Heiligenkreuz and Mayerling. Our guide Irene was a veritable treasure trove of information about Vienna itself, the local region, Austrian history and the Austrian royal family. Whilst Ben very capably took care of the driving and navigation, Irene provided us with commentary on the region, the agriculture and the history as well as some of the local customs and food and wines of the area. The tours of both Heiligenkreuz and Mayerling were excellent, providing us with an amazing history lesson as well as a lot of interesting snippets of information regarding the history and development of both sites. This tour was the highlight of our trip to Vienna and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.
