Traveler Tips

very well worth the time and money ,so in lieu of a tip, thank you for the experience!!
Totally worth taking a tour whilst in Vienna to learn more the history of this cultural and historical city!
This tour is a good introduction of Vienna but it certainly does not include other main attractions (schonbrunn palace, belvedere) and you will have to spend more time doing this on your own.

Dace was a wonderful tour guide, not only very informative but very personable and often funny and witty. This tour was a great start to our trip to get us quickly oriented and with a basic understanding of Vienna’s history. Dace also had a binder with photos to help explain a lot of the history; this is the first tour I’ve had visual aids which I found very helpful.
