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.

Lovely walk with a lovely guide! You get to see parts of the city and also step into some palaces for a short view inside.
Great tour!
Lee_H, Jun 2022
Perfect tour of Vienna! Very warm day. We got to see all the beautiful sites! The guide knew all the best places to see!
Great tour. Bring snacks
Ranchez_C, Jun 2022
Dace was a great tour guide. You can tell that she loves what she does. I wish I would’ve brought small snacks/water. 3 hours of walking around the city can be taxing.
Brilliant guide
Yomira_S, Jun 2022
Dace is such an informative and wonderful guide. I highly recommend it, especially if you want to get great insight on the history of the city and country.
Just right
Hyung_C, Jun 2022
I booked this tour having been to Vienna twice before but for my daughter, who was there for the first time. Dace’s tour was informative, entertaining and felt personal. She is a local and the tour felt like walking around the city with a friend than a tour guide, which we appreciated a lot. Definitely inclusive of all nice aspects of typical tour but with lots of local knowledge and personal touch. It was perfect.
Great Tour!
Adam_S, Jun 2022
A great introduction to the history and architecture of Vienna. Dace crammed a bunch of interesting information in our 2 1/2 tour.
Skillful guide and fun storyteller!
Maureen_H, Jun 2022
Dace made the tour really fun and lively. We toured some quiet little tucked-away gems along with main attractions. I really enjoyed the pacing and storytelling around Franz Josef and Sisi. She also offered some great tips for avoiding lines and making the most of my brief visit in Vienna. The earphones were an excellent enhancement. It was always easy to hear Dace, and she didn’t have to shout above the noise of crowds and traffic.
Excellent tour with so much history explained in short period of time
Andrew_M, Jun 2022
Excellent tour of the city with Dace. She was very knowledgeable and her passion for her city and showing us the best parts of the centre was a credit. We learned so much in a short space of time and she did not hold back even if some of the history was less palatable (WW2 etc) Would recommend this to anyone who prefers to see things on foot,
Good orientation tour of Vienna
David_L, Jun 2022
Dace, the guide, was very informative, had good knowledge and could answer all the questions I asked her. I would recommend this tour to anyone coming to Vienna for the first time as it gave us a good orientation of the city so we were then able to make our own way around for the rest of our trip. Tour lasted 2 and a half hours plus so maybe a bit of a struggle for the less mobile. We loved it, thanks Dace.
Comprehensive Tour

A Happy Client
ThiamHai_G, May 2022

Great tour
Elaine_S, May 2022
The meeting place was easy to find, the guide was very knowledgeable. We were given gave a good insight in to the history of Vienna and were taken to some fantastic places and it was a pleasure to take part. Overall good value for money and would highly recommend.
Victor_T, May 2022
The guide was professional and knowledgeable. I didn't like the fact that she made references to Russia and Putin because, me, as person living in an EU country next to Ukraine I am really fed up with the subject. I understand that she doesn't like that big & mean country because she is Latvian, but keep your politics at home.
Response from Host, May 2022
Dear Victor, Thank you for taking your time to write a nice review. I apologize for not sharing your political views. I value every opinion. Main subject of my tours are not politics but history, art and culture. Kind regards! Dace

Must do Guiding
Per_c, May 2022
Dace was a superb guide. Her knowledge and the choice of streets and places to guide us was very interesting. She took us away from some of the most crowded streets, and had many good stories she communicated with a good sense of humor. She defenitely knew Vienna and the Austrian history,also regarding presentsituation. Abosultely "a must do". Nico
