    We had a beautiful walk around the landmarks of Vienna with our amazing guide Maria. Such a friendly and positive personality. We immediately connected and felt comfortable with her and really enjoyed her stories and insights about Vienna. She also treated us with a warm drink (orange punch) during a very cold day. Thank you Maria!

    This tour with Maria was wonderful! We were able to experience the high points of Vienna's city center and gain a lot of great knowledge along the way. Maria was so friendly and offered recommendations in Vienna and other areas in Austria and Germany that we could visit. I would highly recommend a tour with Maria, and we would definitely take another sight seeing journey with her the next time we are in Vienna. Vielen Dank, Maria!

    The time I spent on this tour was one of the best guided city tour experiences I have had. This is possibly made easier as Vienna has such a rich story to be told. I was also lucky enough to be the only person on the tour so had all of my questions answered quickly and with seeming great knowledge. The guide was very engaging and seemed to enjoy the opportunity to share her knowledge which ensured that the experience was enjoyable.
