    The time I spent on this tour was one of the best guided city tour experiences I have had. This is possibly made easier as Vienna has such a rich story to be told. I was also lucky enough to be the only person on the tour so had all of my questions answered quickly and with seeming great knowledge. The guide was very engaging and seemed to enjoy the opportunity to share her knowledge which ensured that the experience was enjoyable.

    Très bonne guide. Se mettant en quatre pour vous expliquer et vous faire voir des petits passages insoupçonnés pourtant très proches des circuits habituels fréquentés. EWA a fait tout possible pour parler anglais alors qu’elle est guide en allemand. Une guide expérimentée et généreuse de ses connaissances. Une agence qui a rattrapé la situation pour me permettre d’obtenir ma visite, au regard d’un petit retard que j’ai pris face à l’h du RDV, pour motif : perdue dans les transports en commun.
