Great tour guide who provided history and insight to the buildings, statues and churches along the walking route. If you are able to walk I highly recommend taking this tour while in Vienna.

After coming from Prague, Vienna seemed like too much of a modern city however our wonderful tour guide Andrea changed all of that in 3 short hours. She gave us a wonderful walking tour of the 1st district which is rich in history and beautiful buildings. She gave us some tips on where to eat that was not so touristy and some of the better coffe houses and of course which cakes and coffee to order. She was a wonderful guide and the perfect introduction to Vienna. She made us fall in love with Wien.
