The tour was excellent. Brigitte was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about her subject. We visited many locations, learnt about Vienna in 1948, and became more aware of Carol Reed's brilliance in translating Graham Greene's novel into the ultimate 1940s European 'Film Noir'. To end the tour with a zither playing the music from the film was the icing on the cake. Thank you so much, Brigitte, you made our trip really special.
Quite a lot of walking on a hot day, but a fascinating insight into the 19th and 20th century history of Vienna, as well as plenty of anecdotes about the film in many of its actual locations. And a surprise at the end of the tour.
Excellent tour for film buffs! Christopher presented photos of origional film locations and a great narration with not only film info but historical as well. There is a pleasant suprise at the end of the tour!
In the Footsteps of 'The Third Man' was a lot of fun and a great way to get up and personal with the movie. If you have seen the movie then you will love the walk.
Our guide was wonderful, and although the weather didn't always cooperate, she did a great job. My only quarrel is that I bought a tour in English; as it turned out, 75% of the participants spoken German. I have no problem with a bi-lingual tour, but I would have preferred to have a choice of doing one or not - doing the tour in two languages lengthened the tour unduly - to nearly 4 hours. In on elanguage, it would have been 2.5 hours, max. I felt that springing the bi-lingual tour was not cool, especially given the inclement weather.
The guide was extremely knowledgable about the film and its settings, and as a native of Vienna, provided a fascinating insight into the city's 20th century history. It might be worth pointing out that two of the most famous settings in the film, namely the Prater big wheel and the city sewers, are covered by this tour. There is apparently a separate sewer tour for those interested in such a thing!
