We love Wolfgang - he was a great guide. He taught us a lot about vienna, which was super funny and friendly. Even though it was freezing cold, we enjoyed the tour and learned a lot. His English was terrific and his knowledge was exceptional! Thanks to Wolfgang :) ( not George :D )

The best city tour- uncomplicated, funny, enjoyable

This particular tour is nice and different... Easy to understand, funny, witty, and above all- entertains. Wolfgang was able to break down very complicated Austrian history into parts that can be easily digested. I would have no reservations what’s so ever recommending this tour to others and I hope to do it again whenever I am in Vienna. Wolfgang (not Wolfe the George...), the tour guide is simply the best! Thank you!

This was our second visit to Vienna so we really appreciated to extra detail Davy-Nathan provided on the superb tour of the inner city. He was informative, friendy and so knowledgeable. His 'reading' of the group was faultless in showing us all what he knew would interest us particularly.
