We had a very informative and entertaining individual group tour with Christian. He gave us a very exciting and detailed insight into St. Stephen's Cathedral with great historical knowledge. After St. Stephen's Cathedral we walked through Vienna's old town and got to know many beautiful and interesting buildings. A very good tour!

Dieser Altstadtrundgang mit der Besichtigung des Stephandoms war trotz Regen ein sehr schönes Erlebnis. Der Guide hat eine historisch sehr anschauliche Führung gemacht, die nie langweilig wurde. Er verstand es auch immer wieder, unsere kleine Gruppe in Nischen zu führen, in der die Kommunikation verständlich war und wir über Fragen sehr inhaltsreiche Gepräche führen konnten.
