    My husband and I were the first group our guide Ernst has had since Covid, and I can't praise this man enough!! He picked us up at our hotel, and as soon as we walked out started explaining beautiful and historical Vienna to us. He is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and makes you feel right away that you are family and he is delighted to explain his home to you. We saw so many sites in the 1st district, learned so much, and couldn't be more happier with our experience. Thank you Ernst for a first class tour!!

    Sacha was my guide for the 3+ hours. She is from Ukraine but has lived in several Europe cities and has an easy style of communication. She was full of great information about the city and historical places. She gave me good recommendations for food and afternoon activities. She told me where to get guided tours and showed me great places in the city. Although it was a terrible weather day (cold, rainy and incredibly windy), we had a great time, no small feat!

    Really good and efficient start to sightseeing Vienna! I will repeat this in my next trips. I was sighhtseeing Vienna with Mr. Horus Zeisner for 3 hours and at that time I saw most of the important tourist places. My guide answered all my questions and preferences, which made it easier for me to do independent sightseeing later.
