Vienna in 4 hours with a Minivan


This tour is the perfect introduction into Vienna's history and culture!

We will have a limo or minivan for 2 hours and then experience 2 exclusive hours of Schönbrunn castle with a private tour!

In the first two hours of the tour you will see the most meaningful sights of Vienna, including the Belvedere Palace, where you will have a brief tour inside of the gallery to get to see "the Kiss" by Gustav Klimt. You will get an introduction into Art Nouveau in Vienna.

Then we move on to wonderful Schönbrunn castle, the former summer palace of the Habsburg family.
I will give you a tour inside the castle and tell you everything about the Habsburgs, their raise to power and their sad end in 1918. And all about beautiful empress Sisi!!!

There will also be time to experience the fantastic baroque gardens.

This tour ends in Schönbrunn castle for you to further explore the palace and its gardens and museums, like the carriage Museum or the Zoo.

Looking forward to seeing you on my Grand Sightseeing Tour!

A Recent Review of this tour

The Grand Sightseeing Tour provided us with a great opportunity to see the city without the hassel of getting on and off a bus and Susanne was an outstanding guide. Her knowledge of detail is incredible and she speaks with passion and interest. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who has a limited time in Vienna and wishes to see as much as possible. And I recommend Susanne as a guide to anyone who wants to experience an indepth and vibrant tour!
