Our guide Katerina was a delightful, intelligent and lively person whose introduction to Vienna was just what we needed. She was able to include politics, art, history, economics, military,religious and social history and the time flew by. So glad we booked this for our first morning in Vienna as it gave us the perfect orientation and set us off curious to learn more.
