Vienna Old Town and St. Stephen's Cathedral Walking Tour
- Duration: 2 hours
per group up to 10
We got to see and learn much more of Vienna than I had expected from a half-day walking tour, and I enjoyed every minute of it. Walter Schindl met us at our hotel, introduced us to Vienna's excellent public transportation system, and from our first stop at the Belvedere down to the conclusion in the Old Town center he was a constant source of lively and informative conversation about Vienna and Austria and every thing we passed along the way. I had asked for assistance in locating a music store where I might be able to purchase a traditional high-quality metronome as a souvenir of our visit to Vienna, and Walter had located one right along the path of our guided walk, so that I was able to accomplish that objective in one very brief stop. We also wanted to attend a musical performance, and Walter gave us good and candid advice about our options during the short time we were in Vienna. It was an excellent experience, and I would happily recommend Walter Schindl to any visitor to Vienna.
My entire family loved Marieta and her walking tour of the city. Vienna is a beautiful city, and her insight was a five star performance. Every building she provided an excellent description of it’s history. Both my wife and mother in law love roses, and when she took through the park, the roses left them both speechless. She could not have planned a better tour. Marieta is gracious, professional and every family that tours Vienna should request her. We thank her one last time for the tour of a lifetime.
Our guide Walter Schindl gave us an excellent and very interesting tour of parts of the city with a lot of details about history and today's life in Vienna. There was no question he could not answer and he also took excellent care of specific interest of elderly or younger people. We used some of his recoommendations for our remaining days in Vienna and we were very happy with all of them.
Our guide Katerina was a delightful, intelligent and lively person whose introduction to Vienna was just what we needed. She was able to include politics, art, history, economics, military,religious and social history and the time flew by. So glad we booked this for our first morning in Vienna as it gave us the perfect orientation and set us off curious to learn more.
Our guide Andrea was lovely and she told us so many interesting things about Vienna relating to its history, architecture, people and food. We all really enjoyed this tour and my students rated it among their top experiences during our stay. Andrea gave us some valuable tips for the rest of our stay and it was a perfect start to our five-day visit to Vienna.
