On the motorcoach, we passed the splendid buildings on the remarkable Ringstrassw, the gracious boulevard laid out on the site of the old city walls in the mid 19th century. We see the magnificent Hofburg Palace, the winter residence of the Hapsburgs and home of the Spanish Riding School with its Lipizzaner horses. We visited the great Gothic St.Stephen's Cathedral, crowned with a gleaming spire and colorful roof tiles. Also, we got to view the beautiful Vienna State Opera concert hall, its facade adorned with elaborate frescoes depicting Mozart's opera ' The Magic Flute ' Read Less

Included with city guide. Panorama tour of Vienna until reached bus park. Then walking tour across Vienna to pass St Stephan's platz, Hofburg and walking through the Hofburg with finally reaching the Lictenstein Palace for a private tour for 12 guests at a time. the updated airconditioned Lictenstein palace was a gem.

The cruise line included a shuttle back to the city in the afternoon to wonder on our own for about 90 minutes. Read Less

It would have been better to have stopped at some of the sights shown during the bus section of the tour. We felt we just did a drive-by and didn't really get to see some areas of Vienna.
