We had fun at this-- Horst was our guide- there was a little mix up w the meeting place, not his fault. We sailed on and the history of Vienna is fascinating. He took us on a local tour too and gave some great insight from his point of view as a native Vienna dweller. I really enjoyed the mix of history and the personal touch. This is why I booked this type of tour-- to get that local perspective. Definitely do the dinner add on-- huge portions of Wienerschnitzel! Just a great night and a great way to see the city at night with a group of folks. Loved it! Highly recommend.
Walter did a wonderful job - both informative and humorous. The dinner afterwards was very good as well
Overall it was amazing!
The tour guide was so fun in explaining the historical sites even gave us recommendation where to eat cake and local dish!
Effective.. Ended 10 minutes earlier to headed to the local dinner in a decent local resto to have very nice schnitzel and big beers..
This was a fabulous tour. The lady who took the tour was very engaging and informative and I learnt new things about Austrian history. I booked the meal afterwards. Was fabulous schnitzel in a lovely local restaurant. Would thoroughly reccomend.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hour walking tour with Horst. He is very knowledgeable,friendly and witty and a real nice guy. He has a great love of his city and culture and this comes across. We were quite a large group but he makes sure everyone can hear. We opted to join the group for the meal afterwards which was a lovely way to end the evening.
Great tour, fine mixture of historical facts, insider tips and local humor :
Again, my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour led by a lively gentleman! He shared with the tour group a lot of additional information as to the best places to eat, drink, etc. Not to mention, he was very knowledgeable as to the subject matter i.e. Vienna Old Town! Highly recommended tour top catch a glimpse of Old Town Vienna in a few hours.
very good tour very much recommended we did this on our first day in vienna and really helped us to get to know the city .finding the meeting palace can be a little confusing for people who are new to the city
Excellent walk about.Guide gave lots of information on buildings and Viennese history. Viennese dinner very good in typical Austrian pub.Not to be missed.
I thought the walking tour was great and the guide was interesting and funny. We got to see a lot of the famous sights in a short space of time and as I only had two days in Vienna this tour was a good idea. I also enjoyed the meal after the tour.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable of Vienna and she made the tour incredibly interesting. She was funny and very easy to listen to.
Wrapping the evening up with a traditional Viennese dinner was great. It was a wonderful way for us to start our few days in Vienna.
Our guide, Horst, was very friendly and knowledgeable. He knew lots about Vienna and told lots of interesting and amusing stories. The dinner was tasty and we met some lovely people.
As a solo traveler, I booked this tour as well as the optional dinner to meet new friends, and that I did!
Our guide Horst was extremely articulate, informative, and hilarious. He offered a well-paced tour through Vienna's Old Town and provided history lessons and funny anecdotes about the royal family and politicians.
This tour was well worth my time and resources.
Great tour. Guide really liked showing us around his city. And pointed out a lot of nice places to eat and relax along the way.
Our tour guide was a great story teller, entertaining, and funny. This tour was a great way to get a feel for the city of Vienna. After this tour, we wanted to learn and see more!!!
We had a wonderful overview of the town center with a guide who was a native of Vienna. Our tour ended with an appetite pleasing Viennese meal. Our guide was welcoming and enthusiastic about his city.
We had a gentleman who was absolutely delightful, full of anecdotes, suggestions on where to eat, gave us lots of history and useful tips. Covered the basics at a leisurely enough pace so you can make note of what you may like to revisit @ depth. Excellent tour!
We just did the tour and not the dinner. The tour was very well organized and gave us a very good bearing around Vienna.
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. .
