Very best way to begin your visit to Vienna

This is a wonderful way to see Vienna. Our excellent tour guide, Dace, lead a small group 6 of us through Vienna downtown. She knows city inside out and provided it to us - for example showing us the old city walls and hidden courtyards. What makes this tour great is the intimacy of the small group, the details provided by the guide, conversation about the history and culture. Highly recomended!
