This was really entertaining and full of fascinating facts about this classic film. Really enjoyed it !
One of the "must do" attractions if you are ever in Vienna. Christopher, our guide, was so enthusiastic about his city, the classic film and making sure we all enjoyed ourselves, that the time just flew by. Thoroughly recommended. And the "surprise" at the end, was very emotional for me! Alistair
This is a really fun tour and a must f you're a fan of the "Third Man."
Awesome tour. It is more than just the movie tour. The guide places the film in the context of post-war Vienna.
If ever there was a case of 'under selling' this was it. Even if you've never heard of 'The Third Man' I would recommend this walk. What you get is an extremely well informed visit to many of the shoot locations, supported by anecdotes about the writer, producer, director and many of the actors. This is supported by background information on the making of the film and an insight into how the film was relevant to it's time on both a local and global scale. The fascinating guide was passionate about her city and the film, and she was immensely knowledgeable about the history of both. It was impressive that she catered for English and German speakers in the same tour. This did make it longer than it might have been (at 2 hours 30 mins) but it was immensely enjoyable and informative all the same.
Excellent. A very interesting way of seeing parts of this beautiful city. The guide was very well informed.
It was a cold evening when we did this tour, but it added to the atmosphere to see all the places that were familiar from the movie in the dark! We particularly like the tour for what it told us about the city of Vienna in the immediate post war period. Our guide (Katrin? - my memory fails!) was knowledgable and funny. Anyone interested in the movie should see Vienna through her eyes.
Well worth the money. Brigitte the guide was excellent and we felt we had a history lesson as well as leariing about The Third Man film.
This tour is not to be missed it is so much part of Vienna itself.
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!
