We thoroughly enjoyed this trip on our first day. WE WERE VERY LUCKY as 2 people cancelled and the guide continued kindly with us like a private tour! We had a brief look at the cathedral while waiting for the others who never came. We then enjoyed a walking tour in the sun, but chilly! a great introduction to the city centre plus a few Christmas markets. As the light faded the Christmas lights/markets had atmosphere, very festive!Our friendly guide even showed us a great café to get the Viennese coffee and cake.

This was an interesting tour which gave us a good insight into the city of Vienna. One problem was having to wait 40 minutes for a tram to take us from the city to the Belvedere Palace which was far too long. Another issue, which was not the fault of the tour, was the rude and aggressive nature of the female attendant at the bathroom at the Belvedere Palace. This woman ruins the visit for all tourists and should be relieved of her position. The markets were beautiful and interesting and the tour involved a lot of walking. I do recommend this tour.

Our Christmas Tour was really amazing! We enjoyed it very much, because our guide new about everything we asked and showed us all the nice Christmas markets around.

Dace was outstanding and gave a lot of information. I'm sure the tour without the Christmas markets would be even more interesting. If you go at Christmas make sure to do the Karlplatz Christmas market as it is much more traditional than the other markets which have a lot of commercial factory made things as opposed to Karlplatz which is clearly a lot of local crafts. Dace does like to show the churches which were all different and interesting but if churches are not your thing....

This was a wonderful tour. Guide was very knowledgeable about Vienna. She was very personable and talked almost the entire time.
Answered all of our questions and took us to all the normal tourist places and the out of the way places too.
Would highly recommend this tour.

This tour is a solid introduction to major sites, and if it's your first time in Vienna, it's a great way to cover a lot of ground. Dace was our guide, and she was better than other guides that we've had in Vienna. At times, it was difficult to hear her no radios or headphones, and I didn't feel like we got a lot of history about Vienna. She did provide some commentary about the various Christmas markets that we visited, but there was not much discussion about tradition or the significance of them. Overall, it's a great introduction to Vienna though, so I think it's a good tour to do, especially if it's your first trip.

You need to do this tour to get the best view of Vienna possible! Nothing is better than walking around town with a guide! It's better than a bus tour! I wouldn't have known where to visit but she showed me more than I ever could have imagined!! Even if you aren't a big fan of Christmas markets, it's worth the city tour that's included. The architecture is so incredible! I was also excited when she pointed out the stand that created the first snowglobe and traditional gifts and food at the markets! We even rode the rail car to the Belvedere which was so fun!! I'd recommend this for anyone who wants to really see Vienna!!

Super fun and very good tour with Dace, our extremely knowledgeable guide. She knows EVERYTHING about the downtown parts of Vienna we toured. She took us to several Christmas markets and pointed out really interesting architectural features. We walked a total of probably 4 miles over 3 hours, but it felt like much less because we had such fun.

Lovely walking tour around the city. Our tour guide Dace was very knowledgeable and gave us great information on the history of some of the buildings. We visitied perhaps 5 or 6 very different christmas markets selling a variety of beautiful locally made goods varying from handmade pupets, to christmas ornaments, to local cheese. Make sure to try the warm berry punch! A lovely way to see the city and buy some brilliant souvenirs in a very different light :
