We waited anxiously for our ride to turn up as we were booked for 10:20am. No need to have worried, the ride turned up with a few minutes to spare, obviously we must have been the first of the day! The driver spoke good English, pointing out landmarks, and gladly took our photos for us at the end when we wanted a family photo sitting in the cart. We would recommend the experience, it is magical way to see parts of Vienna and feel like royalty…

Absolutely loved our tour, been to Vienna many times, but this was my first time on a fiaker. My one and half year old daughter loved her ride too. We had a beautiful white carriage with two white horses.

Our fiaker ride through the streets of the old town was magical! We felt like royalty! Our driver Herman was very professional, kind, friendly and knowledgeable.

Right on time, friendly guide & very nice way to discover the old part of Vienna.

An experiential and very enjoyable trip, a nice operating team.
