This is one of the coolest things you can do in Vienna, especially that in 2-hours you will see so many things that you will not see otherwise! Florian, the guide, was very helpful and friendly!
In saying that, make sure you take this tour only if are you a confident driver! The Hot Rod vehicle does not have a suspension, and so it's very hard and bumpy. You must have strong arms to hold the steering wheel as it's is not hydraulic! Also you must be smart enough to learn driving an unusual car in minutes e.g. break with left foot, accelerate with right foot!. While driving in the city, your head will be leveled with other cars' wheels, so you figure how scary this can be!
High risk and high reward! You will drive a car with no suspension, weak break, and not seat belts on highways and on the bridges over Danube river but you will enjoy an exciting ride in the city!
This is unquestionably the best thing you can do in Vienna if you want to explore the city. Rather than hop on a Vienna Sightseeing bus let Dennis show you the city in your own Hot Rod. His knowledge of the city is second to none and to top it off he is a genuinely nice guy! Although it can seem daunting some of my group had never driven on the right side of the road he makes the tour easy and accessible to all. The amount of fun to be had in a Hot Rod crossing over the bridge is exhilarating and you certainly get a different perspective of the city. Locals and tourists alike wave and make you feel like royalty. If you want to do something different and see Vienna. This is a must!
I wish I could give this a 10 star review! We had so much fun zipping around the city and having everyone wave at us and take our picture. My only complaint was that the tour was not longer and I wish I could have heard the guide a bit better over the noise of the street...
