Very knowledgeable, nice and entertaining guide. Really interesting places seen and stories heard! Highly recommended, even if you know Vienna.

Our guide explained everything in English and German, which he did very well. But that made it a bit tedious. If it had only been one language, he could certainly have shown us even more. In any case, it was super interesting!
