What a great ghost tour. Would highly recommend to anyone :) I've done tours like this in other cities before, but Lisa really outdid herself. It was great fun. Lisa is very likeable and upbeat and you could tell that she was in her element. She spoke incredibly vividly and the time flew by. The tour contains many historical details and stories from days gone by. Questions from our Seitz were always answered competently and in detail. I would recommend the tour to my friends and would do it again myself. Thank you again for the insight into the dark side of Vienna. It's just a bunch of hocus pocus... <3

Lisa is an amazing guide - the tour was the highlight of our stay in Vienna, so glad we did it! She shared tons of interesting facts about the history of the city, and did so with great energy and humour, as well as provided tons of excellent recommendations for other things to do and see BOOK YOUR TOUR NOW!

As a native of Vienna with an affinity for ghost stories, I naturally already knew one or the other "story". Nonetheless, the lead was excellent. Me and my non-Vienna friends liked it very much. We recommend.

Great tour: Informative, entertaining, funny and also a little scary in places. Perfect for enriching a stay in Vienna with something special.

Very detailed explanations at various locations in the city center Vienna is different
