I would combine this tour with a tour of the synagogue as well. The synagogue tours are at 11:30 a.m and 2:00 pm and cost 5 Euros. You must also bring your passport to get in.
Brigitte, our walking tour guide, was energetic, passionate and very knowledgeable about Vienna's history. The tour is as promised with lots of visual aids. It was interesting to hear about the history of the Jews of Vienna from the Roman times to the present. It was touching to walk the streets where Jewish families lived and of how most of 200,000 Jews that were living in Vienna left due to the virulent antisemitism at the time but the 65,000 Viennese Jews that were left were sent to the concentration camps. There were 23 Synagogues in Vienna before the war, only one remains and that is only because it is near the oldest church in Vienna. The tour ends at the Holocaust Memorial that was built in 2001. When asked how the Jews of Vienna are faring today? Brigitte said They are fine, for now...
A very interesting tour... but visit the synagogue as well for another perspective.

Very knowledgeable guide who gave us lots of info and extended the tour beyond the allotted time
Wonderful tour guide. Interesting and knowledgeable. She made the history real. Her e going was impeccable. The sites were also interesting. Slough we had to leave before the very end, it was a great glimpse into Viennese Jewish history thank you.
Bridget is a great historian and guide. Very knowledgable and capable.
Barbara is so great!!! She's giving a lot of information, open for questions and talking. I've enjoyed this tour every minute.
Great knowledgable guide
Amazing and beautiful!
Our tour guide, Barbara, was fantastic! She was extremely knowledgeable, funny, brought along visual aids maps, pictures, newspaper clippings that she had downloaded from the internet. We had a tour of the synagogue earlier in the day and thought the tour might be repetitive, but it was very interesting and provided us with a great history of the Jewish people from medieval times to today. Highly recommend the tour.
Informative, interesting, emotional, relevant. Barbara's passion was evident and appreciated. Great tour
The tour included everything we expected plus more. The guide, Walter, was knowledgeable, passionate, and very courteous. I recommend this tour.
