One of the best tours ever done worldwide! Peter Scheiber is an incredibly charismatic and professional guide who made the whole tour very exciting and entertaining. Highly recommended if you want a tour outside of the "main stream".

Very nice and impressive tour. Super interesting to see the beam construction. All questions were answered competently. The relatively small group size was also very pleasant. Thank you

Guide was very knowledgeable, pleasant, and had an excellent communication style. He was able to tailor the tour to the interests and knowledge level of the participants.

Nice driving school tour. Absolutely worth it. The guide really took the time to answer all questions.

A wonderful taste of Vienna in style with Max. An amazing start to our time here.
