Our tour guide was really good. It was a great walk through central Vienna getting a history lesson on all the main sights. We only had one full day in Vienna. This was a good way to get to know the city quickly.

Good introduction to the Old Vienna. A bit rushed, but there was a lot to see and do in a short space of time.

Good tour to get orientated with this great city. Our guide was great but spoke and walked very fast. Very enjoyable though despite the aerobic workout. She stayed after the tour ended to answer any questions that people may have had. The office was easy to find which is nearly always a daunting task.

The guide, Andrea, was very good! Lots of interesting details about the architecture and little tidbits of notes. Not a difficult walk either--very doable and you don't have to be a super athlete to keep up.

We covered miles on this walking tour. Taking in many historical sites with our guides extensive knowledge of the history of Vienna it made it a very educational as well as a thoroughly enjoyable tour.

It is very hot and crowded in Venice and this is a good way to get introduced to the city. You see landmarks and get history of people and architecture.
