Georg, our guide is very personable and showed us the highlights of the inner city in a compact way. We received a personal information email in advance. Corona-related, our guide spoke with a visor. Here a headset solution would be helpful to really understand everything. We were a very small group and Georg looked after us very individually. We booked the tour in English, but at first German was spoken, but quickly changed to English after approval by the German participants. The stations were well chosen and some things were not yet known to me. Vienna - short and sweet.

The tour guide was very communicative and kind. The building was amazing. I totally recommend if you want to see the opera but you don’t have time for a concert.

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