Our guide he is really good. He has done well to translate it in English to us. There's mainly German speaking tourists from our group and 5 of us in English but he has managed to explained everything in detailed. Really enjoyed the walk and having more insight to the alleys and old residential areas. It was 2 hrs well spent. I do recommend this tour if u have extra time in Vienna.

A great way to get a potted history of Vienna and Austria. Very good guide with good local knowledge and tips on what to see that 'tourists' usually miss. Only 4 in the group which helped with Q&A Good value for money and set us up for a great 6-day visit

Wir hatten eine interessante, kurzweilige und unterhaltsame Führung tatsächlich in Gassen und Hinterhöfe, mit Geschichte dazu. Unsere kleine Gruppe hatte Möglichkeiten Fotos zu machen und Fragen zu stellen, die auch überwiegend überzeugend beantwortet wurden. Gerne weiter zu empfehlen!
