What people are saying about Graz

What a varied, exciting and amusing old town tour that Leo Engelmayer offered us in Graz! We were very enthusiastic about his great knowledge and valuable tips, which we were able to use very well not only for our onward journey through Styria, but also for the detour to Maribor. We can recommend our competent and nice guide to everyone with conviction! Thank you again and we hope to see you again!

The guide was terrific. The only issue was the meeting point at “the old Romanian church.” Much too obscure. Even tourist office uncertain where it was. The guide agreed. Should meet at Hautplatz at the statue. Unmistakable.

Awesome private tour in Graz! We saw sights that only an experienced guide coujd show us! I highly recommend this tour!
