You begin your Vienna tour on one of the most famous and attractive shopping streets in the city: The Graben. Home of the court jeweller Heldwein, and the famous porcelain factory of Augarten, the area is littered with imperial architecture, opulent coffee shops, and first-rate eateries. It would be rude not to offer you a coffee before getting started properly, so after your brief stroll, you will stop for a quick coffee and a snack. However, this won't be at one of the famous cafes, because only tourists go there. Instead you will head to one of the few cafes that locals still visit — a proper and still functioning Kulturcafe. To Nasch means "to nibble" and that is exactly what you can do at the Naschmarkt, easily one of Europe’s best open-air markets. It is a mile long and showcases over 120 food stalls and some delectable restaurants that are cooking up some of the...

A diverse and entertaining tour! We were lucky that we (mother + father + adult child) were alone with the guide and she was able to concentrate so completely on us and we also had a lot of fun. She reported a lot to us and made it entertaining and you could also tell that she enjoys what she tells us and is passionate about it! So I can only recommend this tour and I would do it again and again!
Peter's leadership was just sensational! He was able to report in detail on almost every topic: history, individual stands, even recipes were no problem for him as a (world traveler) chef. At the latest when we ordered the second wine at the Heuriger zum Schwarzen it was clear that the time limit of 2 hours was only theoretical ...
