Sightseeing operators in Vienna

Vienna is a city that can easily be explored by foot or bike if you have enough time and energy!

However, if it's your first time in Vienna - or you are only staying for a short weekend - we definitely recommend a Fiaker (horse carriage), you will love it! Otherwise there are excellent sightseeing bus tours. If you join one of their tours, you will get a good impression and overview about Vienna's incredibly beautiful sights and the top attractions the city offers. There are so many things to do in Vienna!

As in every major city, there are several sightseeing operators to choose from. Please find a listing below of the bus operators in Vienna that are worth it, efficient and reliable:

Vienna Sightseeing:

This operator is the definite market leader with a great choice of different city tours, hop on and off busses, as well as one day excursions outside Vienna or trips to Salzburg, Bratislava or Prague. They also offer Vienna by night tours, or arrange concert evenings where tickets and transfers are taken care of.

They also have a great pool of sightseeing guides to choose from, so if you prefer a tour in Japanese or Russian, this is definitely not a problem. Check out their website for further information!

Panorama Tours:

This operator has a more global approach. They are represented also in Salzburg and Budapest. They specialise on sightseeing, arranging concert evenings, transfers and tourist guides. They even put full tour packages together, like Valentines' Vienna, or New Year's in Vienna. Definitely a good alternative if you want everything taken care of by somebody else. Check out their local website for further information!

Red Bus City Tours:

Red Bus City Tours is the first sightseeing tour operator in Vienna with a Cabriolet Bus. There is no possibility to hop on and off, they also only do city tours (incl. walking tours). Check out their website for further information.

Cityrama Tours:

Another alternative for Vienna tours or excursions outside Vienna. Be aware that tours are offered on certain times only and not all weekdays. Check out their website for further information.

Whatever you choose - this way of exploring the city will give you a good overview of what to see. But keep in mind that you will not be able to spend much time at each site, you will have to return to do your own exploration.
