Rita was a fantastic tour guide! She was very knowledgeable of the history and she knew the best spots to have a taste of Vienna that were not part of the typical “tourist traps.” I would highly recommend this tour to anyone that would like to see the more traditional and overall best Christmas markets.

The group size was perfect. The vendors we visited had high-quality products and were very accommodating to the tour. We had been to the Christmas Markets all week, and our guide managed to provide the food we had not tried yet. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the Christmas Markets and Vienna's History. She was incredibly sweet and chatty. For the price, the tour and food were incredibly worth it.

Very nice tour with a lot of information about Vienna and its Christmas markets. The choice of markets was also good. The highlight is of course the Spittelberg Christmas market. Under Guide Aldo led us through the markets really well and in a friendly way and I recommend it to everyone.
