Nice city walk through Vienna with guide Herbert. Small group (together with Herbert there were three of us, so it was a kind of private tour). At a nice pace along the most important places of the inner city of Vienna. The information that was shared was understandable, sometimes a good laugh with a joke in between. The tour was really about the history of the city and was certainly not a 'sisi tour', there are plenty of other trips for that. During the tour we were reminded of beautiful things, special architectural points in buildings, beautiful views from one building to another and a number of typical Viennese courtyards, churches, monasteries and the like. It is highly recommended to do this 2-hour walk with Herbert. You can enjoy it all day long.

(This review is for the English-language "Vienna's Secrets - Backyards & Mysterious Locations" tour) One guide, Utte (I hope I got her name right), managed to bring the right mix of fun and historical facts without having to impression to be back in the history lesson. The tour itself takes you, as the title says, to beautiful and very quiet places in busy Vienna. Recommended!

Perfect 2-hour tour of Vienna !!!

For our 50s together, my girlfriend and I wanted to explore our beautiful hometown for a whole day like tourists, and we did. We have also booked this tour for our program. For every man and woman, this tour is TOP! Our guide, a humorous and nice man with great knowledge about Vienna, led us through the alleys and backyards and made us laugh with lots of funny stories. You really see a lot and get a great insight both historically and from the country and its people. We can only say: "It's worth it!
