Our guide he is really good. He has done well to translate it in English to us. There's mainly German speaking tourists from our group and 5 of us in English but he has managed to explained everything in detailed. Really enjoyed the walk and having more insight to the alleys and old residential areas. It was 2 hrs well spent. I do recommend this tour if u have extra time in Vienna.

Lukas the guide was very knowledgeable and took the effort to explain to me everything in English, fluently, so that I didn't feel left out even though the rest of the participants were German speaking.
