Christopher,the guide was very good,very warm,knowledgable,involeved himself in tour so much that it was a pure joy to be with him..not only film guide but in general he was amazing..he made my trip..i was looking forward to see all locations and he was beyond my expectation in doing so..I recommend strongly to go for this tour..
Our guide, Barbara, was amazing. So personable, knowledgeable, and able to switch back and forth between German and English without a hitch. She knows The Third Man inside and out and added a tremendous amount to our understanding and appreciation of that wonderful film.
Wonderful tour capturing some of the special moments of the movie, highlighting some of the secrets and sharing stories of the making of the movie. Excellent and very knowledgeable tour guide
Truly brilliant guide with loads of undying enthusiasm. Amazing and highly recomended
Christopher is passionate about the subject, and it was fun doing this walking tour with others who know and enjoy the movie. The day we did it was very cold and windy, but everyone hung in there because the information shared about the movie, and indeed about Vienna, was so interesting. Really, really enjoyed it.
This was a great tour with an excellent guide. We thoroughly enjoyed it!
The guide could do the tour in English and German. I choose the German one. It was excellent. It was not just information about the 3rd Man Film itself she told about the history of Vienna as well which added colour to the city. Well worth doing
Our tour guide, Chris, was excellent. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the tour in fact we went to see the film the next day whilst it was all fresh in our minds. Admittedly it was about 38 degrees. Really interesting and good fun.
Excellent tour . Barbara the guide was very knowledgable and friendly. Tour ends at a restaurant just in front of the famous door where Harry Lime is standing watching Holly. Food there is very good - a great way to end the trip. Recommend walk AND restaurant . Linda
Very enjoyable for a fan of the film, which I am. The guide (Chris) was knowledgeable and entertaining. The zither player was a great touch!!
A different take on Vienna. Enjoyed the tour and the information provided. Interesting even if you are not a Third Man fan
We were very pleased with this walking tour. Not only did the guide (I can't remember his name) know the movie very well, but he also gave a nice brief historical overview of the war as a backdrop of the movie. We highly recommend this tour which takes you through the streets of Vienna. Very charming!
Our tour guide was fantastic-- enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and did a great job incorporating bits of local history. The tour took us to some great sites, and even for someone who isn't a HUGE fan of the movie, this was a highlight of my trip to Vienna.
An amazing insight into the making of the Third Man film and the post war city in which it was based.
Our guide was excellent and made the whole thing come to life.
If you like the film this tour it is "must do"
A really informative tour. Our tour guide was enthusiastic and interesting. I had an initial problem with the constant switch from German to English as I had expected an all English narrative but I eventually tuned in and enjoyed the tour. If you remember this excellent film this is a tour for you. Luckily the film was showing in Vienna at the time and it was great to watch it again after seeing the settings, sites and getting all the insude information.

Very interesting tour, with a lot of walking. The guide was very informative. There was a nice surprise at the end.
I've long been a huge fan of The Third Man and despite having read books about the movie and the director, I still learned all kinds of interesting things about the making of the movie as well as a fascinating look at life in post-war Vienna. My tour guide Kirstin was great--fun and personable and very knowledgeable. I particularly loved the surprise at the end, that REALLY made this tour extra-special in a personal way for me. You don't have to already know and love The Third Man to get something from this tour--but I guarantee you'll want to see it if you haven't already.
an excellent trip despite the rain. Guide was well informed and entertaining
This was really entertaining and full of fascinating facts about this classic film. Really enjoyed it !

One of the "must do" attractions if you are ever in Vienna. Christopher, our guide, was so enthusiastic about his city, the classic film and making sure we all enjoyed ourselves, that the time just flew by. Thoroughly recommended. And the "surprise" at the end, was very emotional for me! Alistair
This is a really fun tour and a must f you're a fan of the "Third Man."
Awesome tour. It is more than just the movie tour. The guide places the film in the context of post-war Vienna.
If ever there was a case of 'under selling' this was it. Even if you've never heard of 'The Third Man' I would recommend this walk. What you get is an extremely well informed visit to many of the shoot locations, supported by anecdotes about the writer, producer, director and many of the actors. This is supported by background information on the making of the film and an insight into how the film was relevant to it's time on both a local and global scale. The fascinating guide was passionate about her city and the film, and she was immensely knowledgeable about the history of both. It was impressive that she catered for English and German speakers in the same tour. This did make it longer than it might have been (at 2 hours 30 mins) but it was immensely enjoyable and informative all the same.
