    Very nice visit thanks to the experienced guide Romana. It seems expensive but it really is a quality service and perfect French. Thank you very much Romana for your kindness, your culture and your ability to adapt within the same visit, at different levels of history between the young teenager to the elderly person. To do without hesitation.

    My husband and I were sick of the tiny tidbits of information we’d get from the standard ore-recorded audio guides usually offered so we opted for a private tour and it was absolutely worth it. I learned 500x more than I would have otherwise, and I got to ask questions! It was perfect for us. I still think it is a little pricey for only getting 2 hours, but I wouldn’t choose a standard tour over this. Fascinating information and a very entertaining tour guide!

    It was just a great tour. Our guide Gerard literally knew everything about the Hofburg and Sissi Princess. He was very knowledgeable and, as he admits, he had to pass a very difficult test to obtain a license that would allow him to lead groups in the palace. The whole tour was fun, interesting and very professional. We didn't even stand in a queue as the tickets were skip the line. Very good price / performance ratio. We recommend it to everyone.
