I love everything about Sissi's life and Mayerling gave me more insight about her family. Our guide gave us very interesting information and I loved it. The Cistercian Abbey of Heiligenkreuz,was lovely as well. The seegrotte was a totally different thing from the others sites we visted and for someone who visited natural caves would be a little disappointed.The tour was well organised and overall quite enjoyable.
A wonderful way to see the Vienna Woods and get a taste of history of the death of Rudolph and Maria..Unable to take full advantage of the Grotto experience due to too many stairs, but the visiting of the old monestary and several small villages along the way was a treat... Very fine tour guide and safe helpful bus driver..
Trip particularly well organised. Pick up from central Vienna managed without fuss. Excellent guide who provided useful commentary in both English and Spanish. I enjoyed the mix of sites we visited from the monastery to the underground gypsum mine. I found the Mayerling story of the Crown Prince somewhat macabre but the setting was well worth the visit
This tour is probably quite pleasant in the summertime. Not so in early spring. Our guide was competent but the tour itself was boring. We had hoped to see the Vienna Woods that inspired a beautiful piece of classical music.
Excellent and informative tour of the Vienna Woods. Guide was knowledgeable and presented information well. Very much enjoyed Mayerling and the Cistercian Monastery...the underground cave and lake not as much....but likely for others it might have been the reverse.
