Our tour guide was really good. It was a great walk through central Vienna getting a history lesson on all the main sights. We only had one full day in Vienna. This was a good way to get to know the city quickly.

The guide, Andrea, was very good! Lots of interesting details about the architecture and little tidbits of notes. Not a difficult walk either--very doable and you don't have to be a super athlete to keep up.

Absolutely loved this tour. The guide was funny, knowledgeable and kept up a good pace while not appearing to rush. I learned lots about the city, saw some amazing sites, gained a little insight into austrian culture and had fun at the same time. What more can you ask for?

The best way to get an impression of all the main sites in the centre of the city and to plan the rest of the stay. Our guide was very knowledgeable and didn't hurry us along but took the time to explain everything. We were lucky in that the meeting place on the Franz Josefs Kai was only two minutes from our hotel, but also the same from the nearest metro station.
