What a great ghost tour. Would highly recommend to anyone :) I've done tours like this in other cities before, but Lisa really outdid herself. It was great fun. Lisa is very likeable and upbeat and you could tell that she was in her element. She spoke incredibly vividly and the time flew by. The tour contains many historical details and stories from days gone by. Questions from our Seitz were always answered competently and in detail. I would recommend the tour to my friends and would do it again myself. Thank you again for the insight into the dark side of Vienna. It's just a bunch of hocus pocus... <3

Lisa was incredibly knowledgeable about Vienna’s history, was an captivating story teller, and introduced us to parts of Vienna we hadn’t known! We go on ghost tours every where we go and between New Orleans, Paris, Seattle, San Francisco, and Dublin this was the best! Thank you Lisa and we’ll recommend you to all of our friends!

Lisa is an amazing guide - the tour was the highlight of our stay in Vienna, so glad we did it!

Great tour: Informative, entertaining, funny and also a little scary in places. Perfect for enriching a stay in Vienna with something special.

An exceptionally great tour with a very special guide. She managed to entertain a horde of young people with her stories for over an hour.
