Great Tour and Very Informational. Highly Recommended!

A great tour, but would be better with some printed materials that participants can look at as the tour guide explains what they are talking about. Also, it would be wonderful if participants could be taken a little deeper into the tunnels, as the current tour just allows viewing in a couple of various rooms underground. However, I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for something very different and interesting from a historical perspective.

exciting very informative tour with a great guide

We did the tour with our 11 year old daughter and found it very good. I finally know what it looks like under the stone grave slabs in churches. The background stories, also about the other two cellars, were very exciting and we had a lot of fun with Christoph. We have already recommended this tour.

Brigitte onze gids, was een zeer waardevol. Een vat vol met informatie. Geduldig beantwoorde ze al onze vragen. Enorm veel geleerd. Als je geïnteresseerd bent in de geschiedenis van Wenen, dan is dit een leuke, (inter)actieve manier om aan informatie te komen. Our guide, Brigitte, was very valuable. A barrel full of information. She patiently answered all our questions. Learned a lot. If you are interested in the history of Vienna, this is a fun, (inter) active way to get information
