That’s the best.
Marina, has been managing this tout with so much care. Nice and fun stories, mixed with facts and historical moments made us understand Vienna and it’s culture so fast. It has been extremely useful for the next days. We recommend!

We went on an afternoon walking tour with Marco and really enjoyed it. He was extremely friendly and approachable and knew a great deal about Vienna and Austria’s history. Would highly recommend.

We only has a day in Vienna, and we needed a tour that was available, affordable and gave us a good quick overview. We plan to return to Vienna for a longer visit, so we really just needed to highlights tour at a time to suit us.

After searching online, we headed to the Tourism office in Albertini and a tour was heading off at 10.30am . Perfect! Its called a ‘free tour’, but is based on a giving a tip at the end.

Ingrid was our guide. She has excellent English and pronunciation and was very easy to understand. She gave us some great background stories as only a true Viennese could. She not only took us through the palace grounds and key buildings like St Stephen’s cathedral , but also mentioned some other key parts of the city that would be worth visiting.

She passed on her own cafe recommendations (“Where the real Viennese go!”) and gave my partner and I some great advice on a local lunch place that was not too far away, yet away from tourists, reasonably priced and great local food.

We has a small group - minimum is usually 8. But at 10.30 there were just 3 of us - so we all chatted for a bit, and luckily a few turned up to make it worthwhile - we had 9. I got the feeling Ingrid would have taken just the 3 of us on a shortened tour anyway.

the tour is by ‘tip’ at the end which suited us. The tour company is run as a cooperative on a roster of guides. They all have other work and run other tours but this one seems to be a co-op and we were happy to support that too.

How to make it better? Maybe keep moving at the front end . It was cold in the shade despite it being a warmish day in early March, but this is minor point. It wasn’t rushed, nor was it ever boring. And it certainly whet our appetite for this amazing city. Thanks Ingrid!
