Very nice and safe tour of the city. Our guide was excellent- gave us a great summarization of Austrian history that jelled with the tour (also with other tours). Also a good picture of where Austria and Vienna is today socially and economically. Equipment and organization was good. Would recommend.

The speed of circulation of the public transportation is ok, but it was a bad thing when trying to depart from the airport with the trains connected to the center of town: if you do not have a credit card with euro or a ten euro banknote you are stuck there...and you are toasted!...

The tour guide Stephan was very friendly, had lots of entertaining stories about the individual sights, didn't walk too fast, paid attention to his participants and was also open to questions. Highly recommended.

Suuuuuuper! We learned a lot of interesting things. The tour was very entertaining and not boring at all. We will book again next time we are in Vienna! :):):)

We had a great tour guide. We were able to learn a lot and she has great expertise. Very professional and super 👍🏻
