The kayaking tour was a surprise birthday gift for my boyfriend. We had so much fun! James was a great guide, experienced, he's been giving kayaking tours and wine tours in Vienna for a couple of years now and took care of everything for us - we got to just enjoy the water and the tour of the city from the Old Danube. l am a local in Vienna, but found the tour to be a real treat providing me with new insights into my city. It was a relaxing, beautiful day out on the water, paddling, swimming and learning about Vienna. I liked our small group of people on the tour and fell in love with my city in a whole new way. Highly recommended.
The tour was nice, Norbert was very kind, polite and patience. He fetch us with VW Phaeton which was a comfortable car, clean and well maintained. In total the tour was 14 hours just to see Hallstatt and Salzburg. He never counting on the hours. He just keep going and entertained us. Show us many things and explained it well. He brought us to the good Italian restaurant in Salzburg, he knew good food too.
We visited at the beginning of March so it wasn’t that busy. The lift has a glass roof so you can watch as the life ascends to the top of the towers. The view from the tower is amazing! The restaurant/cafe at the top slowly revolves that you don’t actually notice. The staff are friendly and polite.
2 day Pass was good, still have to go to the ticket office to get your pass as electronic pass is not valid. Website needs to be updated as office has moved (Google maps the location!! don't go off website address) & also opens at 9am not 10am as website states. So wasted as hour on the first day.
Great time, although I spent a lot more money than I thought I would. On top of that the cost for the tour is rather expensive, but depending on who is attending it could be worth it. Our guide Karl was very knowledgeable and so friendly!
