Some fellow group members remarked that Lisa-Marie's guided walking tour of the Jewish Quarter was one of the best they have ever been on (and they said they had been on quite a few!) Although I haven't been on many I can't imagine I could go on any better. Lisa Marie's passion for Vienna's Jewish History shone through from the first moment. She was particularly good at condensing large periods of history into manageable, easily understandable chunks. The tour felt less like a 'let's walk from place to place and talk about them' but more of an ongoing story, both chronologically and in respect of the main theme which Lisa Marie was trying to get across. As well as this, she took the time to check in with the group on a VERY hot day, answered questions happily and confidently and just got across her passion for the subject matter so well. An afternoon very well spent, thank you so much!

My husband and I have gone on many Jewish walking tours in both Europe and Israel. I have to say Lisa Marie was one of the most interesting and informative guides we ever had. It was 95 degrees and we were outside , but she was riveting! I have already recommended her to some friends that are planning on visiting Vienna next spring!

did not expect this type of tour, really liked the different approach from a human point of view, the fact that the guide is an historian really brings a meaningful aspect - I truly recommend it

We highly recommend this tour. Lise Marie should probably write a book on the complex relationship between Austria and the Jewish people since the Second World War.

A well-considered historical story about the Jews in/and Vienna. Very fascinating and you come across history in surprising places. Good guide!
