Sailed down the Danube with the cruise boat and went cycling in Vienna. +/_ 15 minutes walk from the mooring quay. Our boat was late luckily the group had been waiting for us. Total 7 pers. + 1 guide. I felt quite safe on my bike in Vienna. Usually on a well-maintained cycle path. The guide took a lot of time to explain and answer questions. We visited and viewed all the highlights in the center. We were back in half an hour late.

Superb, high informative and fun tour. Lotte was an excellent guide, hugely knowledgeable and full of interesting facts. the cycle ride was just the right length, very safe, mostly in cycle lanes, mostly flat, with plenty of stops. the bikes were excellent, and as it was raining the company provided ponchos and a safe place to store bags. Very highly recommended!

Was a really different kind of tour. VR was great you got to see inside buildings and be on the ground during war examples without leaving the comfy air conditioned bus!

I highly recommend the 3 hour tour. You get a really cool overview of Vienna with a historical background :)

Marco explained well and tailored the tour to my wishes, was very informative and interesting.
