What a visit! I am very pleasantly surprised by this guided tour. The guide, Lisa, is simply amazing. She knows her subject perfectly and is passionate. The visit is dense but simple to understand, we learn a lot of things. Lisa is a very good teacher. She knows very well how to alternate breaks, create suspense. She masters her turn. I am absolutely delighted, I will remember it all my life! Many thanks to the guide!

My husband and I have gone on many Jewish walking tours in both Europe and Israel. I have to say Lisa Marie was one of the most interesting and informative guides we ever had. It was 95 degrees and we were outside , but she was riveting! I have already recommended her to some friends that are planning on visiting Vienna next spring!

Some fellow group members remarked that Lisa-Marie's guided walking tour of the Jewish Quarter was one of the best they have ever been on (and they said they had been on quite a few!) Although I haven't been on many I can't imagine I could go on any better. Lisa Marie's passion for Vienna's Jewish History shone through from the first moment. She was particularly good at condensing large periods of history into manageable, easily understandable chunks. The tour felt less like a 'let's walk from place to place and talk about them' but more of an ongoing story, both chronologically and in respect of the main theme which Lisa Marie was trying to get across. As well as this, she took the time to check in with the group on a VERY hot day, answered questions happily and confidently and just got across her passion for the subject matter so well. An afternoon very well spent, thank you so much!
