Exceptional!! Our guide was very informed, had lots of information to show us and took the time to go into detail about the history, buildings and monuments. She was so good that we gave her a round of applause and tipped her without her even mentioning tips. Our 1 1/2 tour lasted 3 hours. Ten Stars!

Barbara was brilliant. We were the only English speaking couple on the tour but Barbara took the time to translate everything for us, including questions in German. Her knowledge of the history of the Jews in Vienna was incredible, to the point that she could give a detailed, thoughtful analysis that went beyond any other history text or film on the topic. Truly outstanding.

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.

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.

Excellent, high-energy, bilingual tour with tour guide Barbara Timmermann! The tour was very smooth even though it was completely bilingual in English and German. Barbara was extremely knowledgable even on subtle details of Jewish practice. She also has a very strong voice that really projected well. Highly recommend this 1-1/2 hour tour which involves walking very short distances.

This tour was very interesting. Our guide, Barbara, was very knowledgeable about the Jewish community in Vienna. Our group consisted of German and English speaking people. Barbara was very adept at explaining in both languages.

The guide was superb - extremely knowledgeable. However, the directions to the meeting place were confusing and misleading.

The tour guide was knowledgeable and had photos to show us of what the city looked like after the war. She also took us to many off the beaten track. However, she was in a hurry because she had another group right after ours and seemed very rushed at the end.

I did read a suggestion here before I went that a tour of the synagogue before the walking tour was a must and I agree. I asked Viator about it and they said there were no tours but there are and are easily found on the temple's website. Don't miss it. It made the walking tour all that more meaning ful.

The tour guide was very informative but during the trip there were two groups one of them speak German and other speak English .. she combined them together and take the two language which mislead the audience so how.

Great knowledgable guide. Very informative. I would add "entering the synagogue" rather than just looking at photos from the outside

The guide provided us with very interesting information and spoke fast but clearly. We saw some places that we probably would not have seen without the tour. I recomend for people who is interested in Jewish or World War history.
