Great Tour! I can only recommend. Vienna has so many beautiful places and in this tour you will be shown the main places in the old town. The guide Benjamin is one of the best guides I have had so far. That's why it gets 5 stars today. :-) Thanks! Until next time!

This was a fantastic tour! Our guide Benjamin weaved together his knowledge of the city's history and architecture with fun and memorable stories. He also asked us about our interests and adapted the tour so we would see more of what we were interested in seeing. We learned a lot and enjoyed every minute! Next time I have friends visiting Vienna, I will recommend they take exactly this tour with Benjamin!
