In the middle of our 2 weeks in Europe we needed to get from Austria to Krakow. I decided our best option would be to take the night train which left us open to spend the day in Vienna. There were a few must sees on my list but I knew we could never see all that Vienna had to offer. My daughter had really enjoyed a rickshaw tour we had done in Salzburg on another trip so when I found Three Wheely Rikscha here on Trip Advisor I added it to our itinerary. I knew the tour could help us maximize our time and see as much of Vienna as we could with the time we did have to spare.

I contacted Luka prior to our trip and set up a time to meet us in the afternoon after we'd had time to do a few things on our own. There were 4 in our group so we booked two rickshaws for 2 hours. We arrived a little early for our scheduled time. We found one of the company drivers, however, he was not ours but he made a phone call and when he could not get an answer he drove off on his rickshaw to find him. Our 2 rickshaws arrived shortly and we set off to explore the city.

Our tour included many of the major sites and was chock full of information. We learned many bits of historical info we did not know and some other lesser known fun facts were pointed out that kept the tour interesting. Our driver would stop so we could take pictures and even position us so we could get the best photos.

As we rode around we had a few dogs that did not seem to know what to think of our rickshaws that barked at us. That was good for some laughs.

We covered a lot of ground and saw a lot! The drivers are amazing that they can peddle so long and make it appear effortless. We were very grateful to be resting our tootsies while they did all the hard work. Absolutely worth the cost especially if you have someone in your party who cannot do a lot of walking or tires easily.

The drivers were great. And, Luka was wonderful to work with. I love that he was able to customize the tour by telling him what we wanted to see and especially where we wanted to be dropped off at the end of the tour. Great customer service, great tour and great fun!

Since the time my parents and I were planning our trip to Europe, we got an excellent service from Luka; helped us with all our concerns and questions. Once we were in Vienna, we enjoyed our tour very much!! We spent two hours visiting and learning about historic and beautiful places. Great views, good information, perfect timing. We definitely recommend this tour.

As my wife and I had only a limited time in Vienna we had looked at the different ways of seeing as much as possible in that short time. My wife found the website for three-wheely and what it offered. Being impressed we emailed ahead to ask if we could book the one hour tour a few weeks in advance of the time we knew we would be there. We received a very courteous reply from Luka confirming the time and details of where to meet. It was also a lovely touch that we received another unprompted email from Luka the day before to remind us of the booking and to confirm he would be there at Stephansplatz at the agreed time. On the day finding him was no problem thanks to the distinctive red and white striped canopy of the rikscha.
From start to finish the ride was wonderful. It was breathtaking to see so many awe inspiring buildings and monuments one after the other and learn of their history from the very knowledgeable Luka. All along we sat in comfort as we were ridden through rose gardens, parks, parliament buildings and palaces to name just a few. Had we opted to find our own way around we would have seen only a fraction of what we did see. Also if we had been staying for longer in Vienna the ride gave us insight into what we would like to see again and visit.
Towards the end of the hour (which had flown by) Luka asked if we would like to extend our ride to the two hour version. I must point out that we did not feel pressurised at all. I asked what else we would see and it included a few of the places we had intended to try to get to ourselves if time allowed (particularly the big wheel out at the fun park). We decided to take up the offer and we were rewarded with a ride along the banks of the Danube, a ride through the park (with the longest tree lined avenue imaginable) and a host of wonders beyond the city centre itself.
As our journey came to an end Luka asked where we like to be dropped off. As it was time for a late lunch we asked if he could recommend anywhere, which he did (again we did not feel obliged to take up the suggestion as he also suggested alternatives that would be cheaper - a reflection of his charm and consideration).
All in all a truly splendid experience and we would recommend it to anyone visiting Vienna be it a flying visit like ours or as a means of getting your bearings and seeing the many attractions to be explored.

(By the way - we visit many Central and Eastern European Cities and as a rule we don't do guided tours - if any others are like this - time for a re-think!!!)
