We were on one of the first tours and even as "non-Viennese" we were very well entertained by the legends and stories about St. Stephen's Cathedral. The tour is a great way to get started in Vienna to get an overview of the huge range of restaurants and bars in the old town. These only play a subordinate role for the tour, but you are well prepared for the subsequent evening planning. Thank you very much for the entertaining 90 minutes.

The tour was very interesting and the 2 hours were not boring at all. The guide told the legends/stories with excitement. We had the Halloween tour in a foggy Vienna, the perfect weather for it. I can recommend the tour to explore a different way of Vienna.

The tour guide Stefan did it really well, he presented his well-researched explanations almost theatrically. On the negative side: The program also includes a visit to the Imperial Crypt... but we never stood in front of it and didn't go inside.

We got to know many new sagas and received background information. Individual questions were gladly answered. The enthusiasm of our city guide has passed on to us. We definitely recommend this city tour.

This excursion has been super interesting! I explained everything very well and the guide is very nice
