Much more interesting than histórias das cervejarias de que tastes os produtos, bem como sobre os porões de Viena, dentre outras histórias locais. O guia Bernie é muito simpático e de fato um apreciador de cerveja e história! Adoramos e recommendamos, inclusive por sua paciência ao esperar que eu fizesse as traduções para o meu grupo.

Horst was excellent. Very knowledgeable- good historical knowledge - very caring and nothing was too much trouble. Helped us understand this magical city and its ways. Another palace?? Why not!! Christine & James from Australia

Just what we imagined. Delightful strudel and fun experience. We also enjoyed the hot chocolate. We were a group of adults but think kids would enjoy this as well.

Fantastic experience. A must do in Vienna. Very close up and personal. The chef was fabulous.

Well worth it! Included a coffee and large piece of strudel. Very fun! Glad we did it!
