Fun, efficient, and informative tour
Jasmine_T

On the day of my tour, it was quite rainy and windy, but that did little to detract from my experience. My tour guide was great at leading the group from room to room and describing the palace, Habsburg family, and gardens, in a humorous and efficient manner. (Unfortunately I didn't get her name.) It was great that there was free time to explore the gardens and Gloriette at my own pace afterwards. Definitely recommended! :)
