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.

We did the walk on our first morning and it was a great introduction to the city. Our guide Horst was very knowledgeable and very amusing. He gave us a good tip on the Vienna jazz scene and we went to a wonderful concert the next night at Porgy and Bess.
