The tour was short and sweet, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and did a very good job of sharing a lot of history and interesting facts. She was also very open to answering questions. Definitely worth the time and the money.

The tour operators were very accommodating as we had travel issues to get to the tour and missed the original time slot. They allowed us to go on a later tour -- no questions asked -- and they did a great job. We enjoyed it very much.

June 2017 - I thoroughly enjoyed this walking tour! The guide was very informative and patient with everyone snapping photos and asking all sorts of questions. We saw Mozart's and Christian Doppler's home. My favorite part is when he let us know that a particular courtyard is where Maria Sound of Music got off the bus to meet her employer - George Von Trapp. At the end of the tour he made sure that you knew how to get back to the starting point if you wanted to roam around.
