The tour was amazing and informative. We even got a free concert that was offered to us at the museum by one of the students who was performing. It was incredible. Only thing I have to suggest is that your app for the meeting point is off. Very off. That happened with another event I planned with get your guide as well in Vienna. The directions don’t match where the actual meeting point is. Once I messaged the guide though they either met me where I was or waited for me to get to them.

This was a very nice tour! Olaf was my guide and he is very knowlegeable . I think there was too much information, maybe too much, it made it hard to remember. The tour could be shorten a bit and perhaps focus a bit more on downtown and maybe include bathroom stops and smack time too!

what a great choice and a unique experience. You not only take a nice glimpse of the city's history, but also history from all over the world. What can we say about the guide..he is such a smart guy and he has so much knowledge about everything. Wow, Good job!

We chose this tour as we knew rain was forecast and wanted to fill a few hours. Really pleased we did the trip. Our guide was very informative and very passionate about the history and sights we saw.

Leo was awesome, passion about the topic, excellent knowledge!
