I highly recommend the hop-on hop-off (72 hours) sightseeing tour + guided city walk and river cruise. You can make unlimited use of the bus (for the duration you have chosen), explanation about the sights, etc. is given via earphones in various languages. City walk was great! River cruise was very relaxed .

The big bus hop-on hop-off is a service offered in many cities that we have already used and know what to expect. In general it is very good. In this case, the sun and heat of the day (and the insufficient shade and ventilation of the transport) made it difficult for us to enjoy this service.

Wir hatten nicht viel Ziet, die Stadt kennenzulernen, also haben wir das Deluxe - Ticket genommen. Wir hatten damit schon gute Erfahrungen in Budapest und Rom gemacht und haben uns auch hier bestätigt gesehen. Überall hinkommen und auszusteigen, wo man mehr Zeit verbringen möchte- dies ist einfach eine tolle Möglichkeit. Die Abendfahrt wäre zeitlich ins " Dunkle " zu verschieben, wäre noch einmal ein ganz anderer Blick auf die Stadt, dennoch ta die Fahrt abseits der täglichen Route Spass gemacht. Wirklich enttäuscht waren wir von der includierten Bootsfahrt - da gab es nun wirklich nicht soviel zu sehen, ausser viel Industriegelände. Dennoch - wir haben ein frühlingshaftes und zauberhaftes Wien erlebt - wir kommen wieder.
