The guide was very knowledgeable The Third Man film which she rated much better than the book. She was pleased that we knew a lot about the film. Think it made it much more interesting for her too.

We both really enjoyed this walking tour despite only my husband being very familiar with the film. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and we saw lots of things around the city centre that we wouldn't have known about. The walk was not over fast nor too slow and suitable for most levels of fitness. Nice weather certainly helped too.

Even if you haven't seen the movie can there be anyone who hasn't? this tour is a great lesson in conditions in post-war Vienna and should be augmented by a visit to the Third Man museum in Pressgasse, near the Naschmarkt. Our group were lucky to be guided by Dr Brigitte Timmermann, who is probably the world expert on the making of the film and author of a book on the subject. You see many of the locations actually used as well as several that were faithfully reproduced at Shepperton. The two and a half hour tour does not include three notable locations: the Riesenrad in the Prater, the Central Cemetery and the sewers. But there is a nice surprise at the end.

This was superb and the background information about the screenplay as well as the film locations was extremely interesting. Imagine our surprise when we came across a zither player on the the street. Our guide Brigid was excellent. This tour is a must for those interested in the 1949/50 Vienna

This was a fantastic tour with a very knowledgible tour guide. He was very good and knew all about The Third Man we thoroughly enjoyed the tour and it was useful in the layout of Vienna too. Would recommend this tour to anyone. Would recommend a visit to the Wheel at Prater Park easy to get to and finishes off the tour.

If you have even the slightest nostalgic connection to this movie, you simply must take this unique tour. In fact, even if you've seen the movie, rewatch it before the tour. Better yet, plan your time to attend one of the twice-weekly showings at a special theater in Vienna before the tour. We didn't know of that possibility and sorely regretted missing watching the film with other Third Man cinephiles. We had so much fun seeing all the locations and learning insider details. And the fun continued for days as we discussed the tour in all its richness.

I'm so glad we took this tour. I've loved the movie for years. We were shown many of the locations where the film was shot. The tour guide was incredible. She was able to effortlessly switch back and forth between English and German and still hold everyones attention. So much of the information was relevant to both the film and to 20th century history. It was great for orientation as well. Though we did not go inside places like the Opera House or the Sacher Hotel on this tour ,we got to see where they were and went back the next day. The tour ended by the famous doorway where Harry Lime appears physically for the first time in the film. After the tour ended we turned left to find something to drink and within a half minute saw the glory of the Rathaus all lit up for the first day of the Christmas Market. The whole evening was pretty ideal.

A great tour! We walked around most of the famous filming locations from the film. The guide also told us interesting information about Vienna and the film, and showed pictures of Vienna after the war. He even cast the famous dramatic shadow on the wall. Well worth it for any lovers of classic film!

Vienna was fabulous! I loved the tour of In the Footsteps of 'The Third Man' and now know everything I wanted to know about the filming of that movie in Vienna!! I also happened to go on the sewer tour in which sections of the sewer were filmed for the movie. This tour completed all the areas I wanted to experience. The tours were unforgettable! The guides were friendly and impassioned about the work that goes on in that sewer. Anyone who loves that movie MUST walk 'In the Footsteps of 'The Third Man!' Vienna and The Third Man are permanently linked together. I loved the movie and loved Vienna and would love to live there the rest of my life!!

Even if you are not a fan of The Third Man film this is a great walking tour. The guide was very knowledgeable about the film and had even written a book which we bought. You really get to see a great deal of Vienna. I would definitely recommend it.

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.

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.
