Really enjoyed this! Although a few raindrops were falling as the group met by the Naschmarkt train station (Kettenbrueckengasse), our tour guide Andrea met us with excitement and a guarantee for a great time and clearing skies. She was right on both points. This tour group was an enthusiastic mix of hostel-hopping 20-somethings and older tourists. As we walked along Vienna’s old town streets and among memorials, famous buildings and landmarks, Andrea held a running chatter in English of historical facts combined with oodles of personal anecdotes about growing up in Austria. Her love of the city, and her drive to share that with the walkers was contagious. She included lots of tidbits not found in standard tourist guidebooks.
One word of warning – do not confuse this tour with Viator’s Vienna City Walking Tour, which ends at St. Stephen’s Cathedral. This one continues on through the Stadtpark, to a local restaurant for schnitzel and strudel, a 20-minute walk from St. Stephen’s. For those staying in the old town, it’s good to note the U4 train station has a stop in the park with frequent trains still running after 10 pm.
This tour would be great on the first night in Vienna to get acclimated to the city and find out what you’d like to go back to the next day. For me, it was my last night in the city and a fun way to find out some more things about the places I’d seen and to enjoy dinner out with new friends made on the tour.
I cannot recommend this highly enough as an introduction to Vienna. Our guide was informative and enthusiastic about the virtues of her home town. Which was infectious. The company was excellent and good food at the end. .
Excellent! I had arrived that afternoon and it was a perfect way to start off my 4 day visit! The tour guide was excellent and told us in a nutshell all about Austrian history.
Horst was a passionate tour guide who certainly knew Vienna and his sense of humour was an added bonus. We had booked a couple of other Australian friends on the tour and they too were most impressed. The city had a different, and very romantic and enchanting, aura at night. Great value.
Learned a lot and really liked the guide. However, he is a serious power walker and does not wait around. Which is understandable, since there is limited time and lots of cool things to see and hear about. I wouldnt recommend this tour for people that cant walk a semi fast pace.
But seriously, really good tour and a lot of interesting information. Highly recommended.
I think the guide's name was Walter. Very funny guy.
A great introduction to the city - I highly recommend this tour on the first day itself so you get your bearings. Despite the rainy and cold evening, the walk was relaxed and we were kept interested and entertained by our guide Marco. He was knowledgeable, told a great story and individually answered queries at the end of the tour about all the usual tourist stuff - which museums to see, where to eat, shop, etc.
Very nice tour with lots of historical information. If you just have an evening time to see Vienna, it's really great.
Did this tour my first night in Vienna, and was very happy I did so. Great walk and very informative. Learned a lot and was a great way to get my bearings in the city. Get to see some really beautiful things on this tour.
The walking tour was OK but the group was too large (about 35 people)! Maybe it would have been more rewarding to have capacity control to ensure a smaller group such that (a) we didn't have to wait for slower members to catch up and (b) that we could all hear the guide. Nevertheless the tour provided us with insight into attractions that we could explore later on at our leisure.
