Immerse yourself in the beauty of Austria's capital city! Upon arrival, look around as you make your way to your luxurious accommodation. Take some time to settle in, then begin exploring!

This evening, you might want to head to one of Vienna's trendiest quarters, Leopoldstadt. Cross the Danube into this hip area of old townhouses, cool coffee shops, theaters, funky markets, and ethnic restaurants. Explore Prater, then treat yourself to a delicious first night meal!

Day 2: Vienna

Fuel up with a pleasant breakfast, then grab your camera and get going! Today, activate your Hop-On/Hop-Off 24-hour Bus Pass and see the very best of this romantic city. Famous for its operas, Baroque architecture, classical music, the Prater, and the scrumptious Sachertorte chocolate cake, Vienna is filled from top to bottom with things to see and do.

Keep an eye out for Schonbrunn, Hofburg, Albertina, Belvedere, and many other famous Baroque palaces along the way! Whenever you see a site that strikes you, feel free to hop off and walk around.

Vienna Hop-On/Hop-Off Bus Tour (24-hour ticket)

Pave your own path through Vienna! Take advantage of this Hop-On/Hop-Off Bus Pass to see the highlights of this romantic city. For a full 24 hours, you'll be able to relax in state-of-the-art buses, learn from interesting audio guides, and hop on and off as you wish.

Step back in time and immerse yourself in the old-world feel of Vienna. Along the Ringstrasse, you'll find most of the city's most well-known sights. See the impressive State Opera, St. Stephen's Cathedral, Hofburg Palace, the Sisi Museum, and tons more.

Happy sightseeing!

Day 3: Vienna

After breakfast, enjoy a leisurely day of sightseeing. Depending on what time you activated your Hop-On/Hop-Off Pass, you still may have some time left to use it in the morning! Be sure to squeeze the most out of it.

Today, check out the famously beautiful St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna's center city. Just blocks away, you'll find "Mozarthaus" or the Mozart house, a 1700s apartment-turned-museum where Mozart lived and composed some of his most famous pieces. Enjoy your included admission!

Mozart House Admission

Visit the Mozart House on Domgasse Street! This very house is where Mozart once created his best compositions. Today, the house has been transformed into a spectacular museum, where you'll become completely immersed in the world of Mozart! Soak up all of his genius and creativity. You're sure to leave inspired!

Keep in mind that you may choose to visit the Mozart House one time on any day of your trip during its operating hours. The admission is taken care of - all you have to do is plan when to go!

When I booked with Great Value I was nervous because it seemed too good to be true. Nope, just a really great deal. I was able to take my dream trip to Ireland and Scotland and it was within my budget. Everything was covered, my lodging, flights, and rental car. There was no hidden fees, or fine print that would nickel and dime me later on, as "good deals" usually have. I also had to change the date of my trip and the customer service was excellent and this change was simple. Thank you Great Value, I'll be using you every time I travel from now on

Everything on the trip was excellent. The only concern with any services from GVV was initial communications ahead of the trip regarding when and how we'd receive all our travel vouchers, as some were available online, and some were to be picked up in country upon arrival. It took no less than 5 phone calls to learn some vouchers would be picked up in country. The trip was outstanding, exhausting, but gloriously beautiful. It was exhausting from the perspective of moving around the country and only a few places were 2 nights. But, we knew that going in, and we wanted to see ALL of Switzerland and this certainly checked those boxes. We saw majestic mountains, we saw countless waterfalls and glaciers. The trains in Switzerland were all clean and we felt safe. The hotels were good with delicious breakfasts each morning. Overall, I would recommend GVV to a friend or family member and I would personally book another vacation with GVV.

This was my first time planning a trip out of the country. I read previous reviews who had a good experience with Great Value Vacation. Our trip was amazing! The booking and reservations were easy to use with the vouchers provided. The staff was helpful. The only downside was I upgraded to have an automatic vehicle and they gave me a stick shift. It took a while to get sorted out but other than that I loved my trip! I will definitely use great value vacations again when I book my next trip. I opted for the additional wine tasting package and I did not regret it! I recommend adding those additional tours to get a more complete experience.

My wife and I recently booked our vacation through Great Value Vacations. We were a bit nervous to travel to Europe for the first time, but we are glad we did. Great Value Vacations took care of us. Great customer service. Seamless transactions. They booked the hotels and flights for us. All we had to worry about were the daily activities! I would highly recommended them. The hotels offered through the package were as advertised: nice and in great locations. The flights times were also convenient. The best part was the price. I am thankful for the experiences Great Value Vacation was able to provide for us!

Really enjoyed both of my trips through Great Value Vacations. I went on one family trip to Ireland (Adare villa, rental car with trips out to Dublin, Cliffs of Moher and more) . The villa was very comfortable with a kitchen, three bedrooms, and proximity to the local shops /restaurants. We were able to upgrade to an automatic car and had fun navigating to each location on our itinerary. The trip as planned by the agency still leaves time for exploring on your own and since we picked a trip with our own transportation, we had flexibility on which tours we wanted to do and when.

My second trip was a solo trip to Scotland. I like to go on vacation by myself sometimes, but it can be hard to find ones where you aren’t penalized for being on your own. This train trip to Edinburgh, Inverness, and Glasgow worked out really well for me. The hotels were all near the train stations and in safe areas (good lighting, plenty of people, etc.). I got a good mix of options for sightseeing in each city. The hop-on, hop-off bus circuit was especially useful for getting around Edinburgh. I also added an extra tour on in Glasgow to see nearby castles and a distillery and was very glad to have done so as the views of the countryside were amazing!

Summary: Have enjoyed my previous experiences and would definitely use again

Just got back from our trip to Italy booked through Great Value Vacations & was our dream come true! We could not have gone if it were not for their unbelievable rates. Each 4 Star Villa we stayed at was above and beyond our expectations...I cried after leaving each part of our journey. I am so glad I took a leap of faith and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND booking with them. Besides the Villas being beautiful, great locations, clean, and great staff; each place we arrived at actually said, "They said to give you a very nice room." (with a rate of just under $1,900 a piece for 9 nights not counting travel days at 4 stars Villas in Rome, Tuscany, & Venice including airfare and rent a car... a few friends told us to expect the worst rooms at the places we were staying ~ NOT the case! Our rooms had the best views...I could go on and on. Every step of the way was smooth with no worries whatsoever. Thanks again GVV! LOVED IT!
