Great Tour and Very Informational. Highly Recommended!

A great tour, but would be better with some printed materials that participants can look at as the tour guide explains what they are talking about. Also, it would be wonderful if participants could be taken a little deeper into the tunnels, as the current tour just allows viewing in a couple of various rooms underground. However, I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for something very different and interesting from a historical perspective.

Exceptional, educational and very enjoyable.

Wolfgang was a fabulous guide. He has a vast amount of fascinating stories, a sense of humor and led our group skillfully and safely through the streets of Vienna. I give him more than five stars and recommend him to anyone who is looking for an exceptional and seasoned guide. I lead walking tours in San Francisco for San Francisco City Guides and it was a pleasure to be with a real professional like Wolfgang.

The Secrets of the Fiaker remain a secret.

The gentleman meeting us at the stable spoke paractically no English. Since I don’t speak German, there weren’t too many secrets he could share with me. We were shown some videos he had on his smartphone of horses he maintains at his farm and he shared a few statistics about his business. He was friendly enough and the carriage ride to town was good. However, I expected a little more from the stable tour.

A useful intro to the main buildings in the centre & a little history

Recommended for a 2-hour intro. But do it in good weather. It was around 5C and v windy and overcast on our tour. Much standing and listening left us all chilled. Not the guide's fault of course! We used it for orientation and returned to some of the places for a closer look.

Herbert was a great tour guide - very interesting and funny!

I would definitely recommend this tour. It was a good introduction to Vienna. We got to see a lot of the sights, but, more importantly, we got a lot of the important history of the city in a casual, interesting way. Our tour guide, Herbert, was great!
