Wir hatten eine sehr informative und kurzweilige individuelle Gruppenführung mit Christian. Er hat uns sehr spannend und mit großem historischem Wissen den Stephansdom ausführlich näher gebracht. Nach dem Stephansdom sind wir noch durch die Wiener Altstadt gegangen und haben viele schöne und interessante Bauten kennen lernen dürfen. Eine sehr gute Führung !
