maybe a funny statement, but for the announced "first look" the tour felt a bit too detailed. But maybe we were just too cold after two days in mild Italy. :-) In any case, the walk makes you want more, there is just so much to see in Vienna. In our case, the voice of the tour guide should have been a bit stronger, it was sometimes quite difficult to follow her.

Elisabeth was outstanding! Her vast knowledge and enthusiasm for Vienna made me want to have more time to get to know the city better. She was also very willing to answer questions and go into detail. This is a great way to get a good overview and flavor for a city in a short period of time. Highly recommended!

Our tour was good, but a bit too long (almost 2.5 hours). The guide knew the history very well. The focus was a bit too much on the history side. I would have appreciated a bit more modern perspective as well. I’ve had better tours in other cities, but overall I can recommend it.
