Great experience quite different from regular sightseeing. This was our second tour of the day so we did it using rental electric scooters, which was a very good idea. Places are fairly close to each other but if you’re doing it during summery hot day, renting scooter is a good idea. I will definitely do similar activity in the future in some other city.

A nice tour of the most famous sights of Vienna. Interesting are the lesser known details that you come across on this tour. Very educational and exciting. The directions were easy to understand and well planned for me.

We did the tour as a company outing and everyone had fun. Discover a bit of Vienna, solve puzzles and spend time together.

A cheap but fun way to see the sights of Vienna. Would recommend as long as you don’t mind a bit of walking!

Spontaneously decided to do a puzzle tour, it was very interesting - even for locals.
