As market leader we stand for excellent organisation, personal service and a vast variety of interesting tours. Experienced TOUR guides & tours in many different languages Our TOUR guides are certified, they speak several languages and have been working for us for many years. Our programme includes numerous TOURS in & around Vienna, as well as to Salzburg, Budapest, Prague and Bratislava. The majority of tours are offered in German, English and Spanish. Some tours can also be booked in French, Italian, Japanese and Russian. HOP ON HOP OFF bus tour Apart from the huge number of TOURS, we offer a HOP ON HOP OFF service with more than 50 stops throughout Vienna. Along the 6 HOP ON HOP OFF lines you will find many popular tourist attractions of Vienna: Schonbrunn Palace, Hofburg (former emperor's palace), Vienna State Opera, Prater (leisure park), Giant Ferris Wheel, Belvedere Palace and many more. Our special bonus: with one ticket you can hop on or hop off as often as you like.

You might consider just taking the train to Salzburg on your own, and touring yourself. Trains leave the main station every hour, and Salzburg is really easy to tour on your own.
