Herbert was very knowledgeable and we would thoroughly recommend this trip to others. It gave us an excellent grasp of Vienna and is well worth doing on your first day.

This tour is great value. Our guide was informative and entertaining. This was an excellent introduction to Vienna. Easy walking, flat terrain, suitable all age groups. It was a plus that the tour was done with a small group . Highly recommend

Herbert was fascinating and we learned so much from him during our recent walking tour of Vienna. I couldn't believe how much history is located within a small walking distance of Vienna. Highly recommend taking Herbert's tour as your first venture into the wonderful city of Vienna and learn about all of the places you will want to see and enjoy. Thanks for a great introduction to the city of Vienna!

Worst tour I've ever been on. Completely boring and uninteresting and we couldn't wait for it to end. Would not recommend. On top of that, tour guide, Herbert, was arrogant and actually believes he's the best. When asked why he didn't carry a pole with a flag that would make it easier to keep track of him in the crowds, he said one, I don't like them and two, if you want to know the difference between me and them referring to the other tour guides in the vicinity all of whom carried flags just read my reviews on TripAdvisor and you'll know why I don't need to. This right after two of the tour group got lost!

We arrived before 9:30 to me informed that the English tour started at 12:00. The guide on our 12:00 tour Wolfgang was great. He explained the things we saw on our own and much more.
