Dance gave everyone a ear piece so that we can hear her when we walk as a group . This is awesome as it gave her a lot of time explaining to us the sights . As she walked’ she talked and she doesn’t need to waste time waiting for everyone to gather around her. We can listen and take pictures at the same time. After our walk with her , we definitely knows more about Vienna and know our way around the city .

We would have liked to have gone inside some of the buildings with details of the features inside. Of course this would reduce the number of places visited.
