Great tour ... we got lucky our .. tour guide Andrea was exceptional ... knowledgeable, great sense of humor ... she was so eager to share all her wealth of information with the group... We saw all basic sights , she gave some good ,'local' advice of what to do , where to eat in Vienna ... Definitely will recommend this tour. Vienna, and old Vienna is relatively small place so the best way to explore it is by walking ... so City Walking Tour was perfect for this purpose.

Interesting, insightful and entertaining. Even though it was pouring with rain, our guide kept us enthralled with the history of Vienna. His humour engaged us. Gave us a sense of how the city linked together both geographically and historically. Thank you
