Full description
Enjoy a unique tour following in the footsteps of Orson Welles through the original filming locations of the classic film, "The Third Man." Even more than 50 years after its première, the dark post-war epic about Harry Lime (Orson Welles) remains one of Vienna’s film classics. Director Carol Reed deftly transformed English novelist Graham Greene's screenplay into an authentic and artistic film of post-war Vienna. Many illustrative pictures guide in the footsteps of Harry Limes through the winding, cobblestone plastered alleys of Vienna’s old town centre. Visit the most important film locations, learn about the exciting international genesis of the film and about the “other Vienna,” the war ruins, the allied forces, the black market, and the spies from east and west. Experience an unconventional, lively, and exciting film and city tour!

    My guide brought the Vienna of the film alive, putting it in a relevant historic context referring to the Second World War and how Vienna is now. It is best to know the film but no worries if not the guide has a large photo album of all the significant shots. The walk takes you through a wide section of central Vienna.

    Very enthusiastically led tour by Chris, who is very knowledgeable on all things Third Man related. Lots of valuable snippets of information about the film but also post WWII Vienna. Taking in some key film locations. Unfortunately, the cemetery and big wheel are too far out to be included in the tour.

    Excellent tour. Very informative. Longer than 2 hrs though, closer to 3 hours by the end. If your not fit it could be a struggle. We were a group in our 60’s and struggled by the end, but that was probably more of a reflection on our lack of fitness.
