Elisabeth was outstanding! Her vast knowledge and enthusiasm for Vienna made me want to have more time to get to know the city better. She was also very willing to answer questions and go into detail. This is a great way to get a good overview and flavor for a city in a short period of time. Highly recommended!

Our tour was good, but a bit too long (almost 2.5 hours). The guide knew the history very well. The focus was a bit too much on the history side. I would have appreciated a bit more modern perspective as well. I’ve had better tours in other cities, but overall I can recommend it.

The tour were very informative and interesting in general. As a newcomer to Vienna it went maybe a little deep but if you study a little bit before arrival you get more out from the tour. Our guide spoke clear and understandable so it was easy to follow. Will definitely try other tours in the future. Thanks from Thomas and Quy
