My tour guide Suzzanne was amazing. A professor and historian she made Vienna come alive and although booked as a small group tour I lucked out and had my guide all to myself! A great way to see the highlights of the city.
Ilse was extremely knowledgable and engaging and made us feel so welcome. She made the tour a very good experience. With it being just the two of us it became a private tour and she was able to cater to our needs exactly and focus on our interests. We would strongly recommend this tour to anyone visiting this amazing city.
I thoroughly enjoyed my walking tour of the Art Nouveau buildings of Vienna. It gave me a greater appreciation of the wonders of the city, as well as made me aware of this style of architecture in other cities I visited afterward, especially in Budapest.
Our tour guide Katrina was fantastic. She was both energetic and knowledgeable of both history and culture. I had debated other tour companies, but am glad we chose this one. Even though it is more expensive, the small group nature (it was only my wife and I) that made it unique and enjoyable, because we could hear what she was saying, we proceeded at our pace and we could ask questions. If you are considering booking this tour and company, we would recommend you do it – you will not regret it!
Such a valuable introduction to the city. Our guide Ilse was fantastic. If you are interested in the history and origins of Vienna, this small group talk is great.
