Excellent, extremely knowledgeable and patient guide who was very enthusiastic about art and filled me in on all the details. You also get a tour of the gardens and outside area as well as the history. You will really get a lot out of this tour.
Great guide!

Angelika was a great tour guide of a beautiful palace/gallery. Brought art to life through detailed background, and showed the progression of the artists.

We were extremely fortunately to have Ira as our guide. She met us on time, helped us purchase the right tickets, provided a wonderful history of the place, walked us through the gardens, provided information on key pictures and recommended a great place for lunch. Belvedere Palace is beautiful and Ira helped us see that beauty. You will be fortunate, just like us, if you get her as your guide.
Excellent guide to the Belvedere Palace

My wife and I were visiting Vienna last week for the first time so we decided to have a guide to show us around the Belvedere. The guide (Ilse - unsure if that’s spelled correctly) was superb. She was very patient and made sure that we got to see all kinds of really interesting items and learned background information we couldn’t possibly have done ourselves - even with an audio guide/guidebook.

Wolfgang our guide was excellent. He made it perfectly clear where we were to meet him. It would be helpful to note more clearly that the price of the tickets is not included in the price of the tour. We saw the major works in the vast collection. Wolfgang was very knowledgeable and gave us deep insight into what we were seeing. He also correctly read us and ended the tour when we were overwhelmed by art. We enjoyed having coffee with him. He also made suggestions as to things we should do with our remaining time in Vienna.

It was my last day in Vienna and I couldn't have chosen better tour to conclude my trip. I was the only one on the tour and tour went ahead. Dr. Christa Veigl is very knowllegeable, a lot of information about history, architecture of the palace and some stories about the original owner Eugene of Savoy. An excellent guide for the amazing palace. it was not as formal as it would have been should we had a big group of people. Three and half hours went really quickly. I thoroughly enjoyed our walk and conversation and would recommend this tour to everyone who is interested in a little bit more than just general info.

We learned alot from our guide, Stephan. He explained the differences between the numerous styles of art and shared the history of the different art pieces. He also spoke of the history of Belvedere Palace and how it was built. We really realy enjoyed our tour and found Stephan's passion for history and art infectious.

The guide was very knowledgeable and keen to point out and explain aspects othe history and architecture of the Belvedere complex as well as discussing the collection of paintings housed in the Belvedere.
