Why choose our Vienna tours, day trips and Activities?

Austria's eco-friendly tour company of the year!

Sustainability and eco-friendly travel is at the heart of everything we do at Venture Vienna. We cultivate bespoke and intimate travel experiences that bring our guests back to nature, while doing no harm to the incredible planet that hosts us all. We're therefore proud to have been recognised for our commitment to excellence and sustainability and for being voted Austria's Eco-friendly Tour Company of the Year 2024.

'Small groups' really means small groups

The last thing people want to feel like on a group tour is just another number. Each of our small-group tours and activities operate with a maximum of 12 people (usually less), which means you get a more intimate, enriching and personal experience to make your day with us more memorable

Vienna Tours for families

When traveling with kids, it's not always easy to find something that everyone will enjoy, so we've developed fun activities and tours for families to let your little ones burn off their energy and give them (and you!) a break from the museums. Naturally we offer reduced children's rates as part of that.

24hr cancellation & the best prices

On all of our small-group tours we offer an automatic 15% discount on bookings of 4+ adults, and we're flexible in case you need to cancel your spot. You'll always find the best prices when booking your Vienna tours and outdoor activities directly with us.

Corporate and team events in Vienna

Our Vienna activities and tours complement a wide range of company events, team-building exercises and large group excursions. From wine-tasting to water sports, we have years of experience working with schools, companies and large tour groups from all over the world.

Creative activities in Vienna & beyond

In both summer & winter we love helping people to discover new places with our range of innovative day tours from Vienna. This is what drives us as a company. We also encourage you to reach out to us with your own ideas, so no matter how out there your request may be, if there's a different place or activity that you want to experience, we'll try to make it happen.
