Despite the pouring rain, we, a group of seven friends, had a particularly entertaining and entertaining city tour with our guide, Mr. Wolfgang Auinger. Through the humorous and appealing way of conveying historical content, we were able to experience romantic Vienna. We explored alleyways, courtyards and churches and reached interesting places, the historical background of which Mr. Auinger brought to life for us.

The backyard and mystical place tour was very interesting and exciting. Our guide Herbert Stojaspal knew a lot to tell.

Interesting tour through downtown Vienna with many insights that you would not have gained without a tour guide.
