My guide was very astute and kind (he waited five minutes when I was late and was so nice about it!). He knew everything you could know about Freud, it seemed, and his tour was entertaining. Also friendly—he answered many questions!! I would take this tour again, it was so good!

This is something amazing, i think every tourist in Vienna must take this virtual tour, because you can see city in other side, you become part of history, higly recomended. The guide and drivel, they are very warm and friendly.

It's always great to learn more about a city this way and to get a lot of impressions in a short time.

Great tour, unfortunately you always have to wait 1 hour for the next bus. This loses a lot of time

The pick-up point was excellent and near our lodging.
