    Great experience quite different from regular sightseeing. This was our second tour of the day so we did it using rental electric scooters, which was a very good idea. Places are fairly close to each other but if you’re doing it during summery hot day, renting scooter is a good idea. I will definitely do similar activity in the future in some other city.

    My entire family loved Marieta and her walking tour of the city. Vienna is a beautiful city, and her insight was a five star performance. Every building she provided an excellent description of it’s history. Both my wife and mother in law love roses, and when she took through the park, the roses left them both speechless. She could not have planned a better tour. Marieta is gracious, professional and every family that tours Vienna should request her. We thank her one last time for the tour of a lifetime.

Great tour. Also very suitable for visitors to Vienna who have been there several times. You learn a lot of new things. The 2 hours go by quickly. The tour always stays close to Steffi, you walk in a circle around it. Our guide was a real Viennese who, with a lot of passion and knowledge, drove us away the 2 hours in a very moody way. Only partially suitable for children under 14, as there is of course a lot of historical information.

Great experience quite different from regular sightseeing. This was our second tour of the day so we did it using rental electric scooters, which was a very good idea. Places are fairly close to each other but if you’re doing it during summery hot day, renting scooter is a good idea. I will definitely do similar activity in the future in some other city.

A nice tour of the most famous sights of Vienna. Interesting are the lesser known details that you come across on this tour. Very educational and exciting. The directions were easy to understand and well planned for me.

Experienced guide with rich knowledge. Private tours are just great, mass tours should be saved.

The tour has given me new impressions and views about the inner part of the City of Vienna.
