All exchanges were courteous, professional, and personable prompting me to not hesitate with questions. I appreciate the time and consideration to follow up with docents concerning our questions and recommendations - very helpful when planning our days. We particularly liked the text messages in advance...More

Highly recommendable tour for "foodies": great Austrian food in a lovely restaurant which your typical tourist wouldn't even find, an enthusiastic and very, very knowledgeable docent who makes the evening a great experience!

Our docent was extremely knowledgeable and flexible. We had a specific yet eclectic list of sites we wanted to visit in Vienna. Our docent was able to meet all our varied requests. She was very, very accommodating.More

This tour was excellent. We only had three hours. The day was rainy, and I unreasonably requested a custom tour covering art, music, and history. Our docent, Gilles, did a wonderful job in providing just enough material to cover all of those topics, without hurrying...More

After enjoying a Context walk in Florence, I was excited for two more fantastic tours in Vienna. Clemena at the Kunsthistorisches Museum and Marieta on the 1st District walk were both wonderfully welcoming, knowledgeable, organized and insightful. Looking forward to yet more great tours!

My husband and I loved this tour. The docent had such a depth of knowledge. The postal building was a revelation, the Klimt friezes were magnificent. A must do for anyone who loves the decorative arts and architecture of this period. Highly recommended

We enjoyed an afternoon at Wieninger Vineyard, a tasting tradition walk to multiple cafes. and a walking tour of the first district. The docents were excellent and these tours provided us a fuller Viennese experience.

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The
second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative
crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and
take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old
townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and
