Four super interesting hours

Herbert Stojaspal was the best guide we have had so far. It was exciting, entertaining and very educational. He conveyed original backgrounds. Even our Viennese friends were thrilled. He also involved the children very well. Despite great skepticism that four hours are not too long, everyone actually wanted to continue - even the kids.

3 hour private walking tour

Our guide Herbert was very informative. He kept our 9 year old daughter entertained while giving the adults a wealth of information. It was a great way to get our bearings when we arrived in Vienna. He used photos on a tablet as a way to give us more perspective.
