An absolutely first class tour with a guide who knew her subject inside out. It was a small group (7) in both English and German - which presented her with no problems at all. She brought together all the facts and figures we had no completely understood after a visit to Vienna a year earlier, plus all the additional information she provided on the bus there and back. We cannot compliment Clara enough! And of course the palace really is worth seeing - especially with snow all around!
