Em 1949, Orson Welles tornou famoso o papel de Harry Lime no filme noir britânico "O Terceiro Homem", escrito pelo romancista Graham Greene. Nessa excursão a pé pela cidade, explore a Cidade Antiga de Viena enquanto segue os passos de Harry nos cenários do filme. Você também verá alguns dos principais pontos turísticos de Viena, como o Hotel Sacher, enquanto seu guia especializado o faz voltar 60 anos no tempo para o período fascinante da espionagem pós Segunda Guerra Mundial.
We met Birgitte, our guide, ten mins before the tour started. She proved to be an animated and expert guide, which is no surprise given that she is an historian and knows everything about post-war Vienna and The Third Man. She really brought Vienna and the film to life.
Leider gehört ein Besuch der Kanalisation nicht zum Programm so dass das Foto zur Tour irreführend ist!, ansonsten war es eine schöne Tour durch Wien, wo man viel über den Film und die Drehlocations erfahren hat. Zum Schluß gab es noch die Filmmusik live vorgespielt.
I went on this tour in honour of my dad, whose favourite film it is. I've seen the film many times, thanks Dad but my boyfriend had only seen 3/4 of it in prep for the trip. The tour was perfect for both of us. It was great to start at the iconic tunnel, and wonderful as it got dark in Vienna. The guide was very knowledgeable, inevitably as this is his family business, but we also learnt loads about the city itself. He was talkative and interested in his group too. The end surprise was lovely.
Not quite a 5/5 as:
- We were a group of 10, all English speaking apart from a Swiss-German couple we'd booked onto an English speaking tour. However, the guide started each time in German, before repeating it in English. I don't mind really, but after a while it was a bit annoying and obviously made it longer.
- Would have been nice to have included a mulled wine in the tour - maybe at the end. We bought one at a Lions Club charity stall which was nice, but some refreshment at the end would have just finished it off perfectly.
- There were no toilets at the end despite ending in a shop. We were directed to Starbucks round the corner who require a purchase before giving the code for the toilet.
That being said, it was one of the highlights of our trip and I would recommend it to any fan of the Third Man.
