Owner description: Peter will be your local guide in Vienna! Admire the charm of the imperial city with me and hear, not only the facts about the 640 year old regency of the Habsburgs`, but also humorous, erotic and unbelievable details about the lives of the empress and emperor. Smile about grotesque courtly customs and shudder over murders, unsolved deaths and other criminal tales. It would be my pleasure, as a state approved tour guide.

“Great Tour-Peter was wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

My wife and two adult children booked Peter for private walking tour in Vienna and enjoyed it very much. Peter is very engaging and you could really see his passion and love for the city come through. I have a very short attention span and Peter was able to keep me engaged and entertained for the entire two (2) hour tour. Our twenty something kids loved the tour and all in all I would highly recommend Peter if you really want the insight behind the sights in Vienna.

“Falling in love with Vienna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Peter was extremely easy to work with and always responsive to any emails. He not only can give you all the facts but has a delightful sense of humor and interesting stories and behind the scene glimpses. We first did a car tour in the morning, took a break for lunch, and then did a walking tour. It was a fabulous way to acquaint ourselves with the city and to immediately know what we wanted to return to during our trip. Peter also secured outstanding seats to a Mozart concert at the Great Opera House. Highly recommend booking one of Peter's tours,n you will not be disappointed!

“Fantastic experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We loved this tour and enjoyed Peter´s charming company. He is really an expert in making history atrtractive even when the matter is somehow difficult and strange. Many times visiting important cities we walked around on our own. This time we followed some friends advice and hire this experience. Totally right choice! Don´t miss the stories about the Augsburg family, so engaging and feel the atmosphere of the Graben square...

“Look no further, this is the best private tour in Vienna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

From New York, we booked with ease, an advance private tour with the fabulous Peter Scheiber! We selected him as his reviews were ravingingly positive, with good reason. The initial contact with wienguide.net went smoothly and our plans were set. We started this driving tour by hitting the highlights of Vienna in style in his Minivan. The description of the city tour was: "Classic City Round Trip" and we were picked up on time in front of our hotel as we requested.

By our private Minivan we will traveled along the Vienna Ring Boulevard. We were able to see the Vienna State Opera, Imperial Palace, Museums of Fine Arts and Natural History, Parliament, the Burg Theatre (National Theatre),City Hall, the University, the Votive Church and the stock exchange. On to the Prater with the Riesenrad (giant Ferris Wheel), the beautiful blue Danube, the City Park and famous Johann Strauß monument, and the Karlsplatz with its music society and Charles’s Church. We also requested to see the Hundertwasserhaus and tour the Klimts at Belvedere Palace. We did all of this and more in our 4 hour tour. We had a blast!

The real advantage to hiring Peter is his deep knowledge of the current and historical sights of the area and the way he makes you feel as if you were there back in the day. I was transformed and taken to other times and places listening to him. Believe me this is far better than any other tour could be. Peter has an award winning personality which combined with his talents as an orator and his charming manner make this the best choice to get to know this lovely city of Vienna.

“Great Family Tour of Vienna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Can't say enough good things about Peter. He put together a customized walking tour for our family. We have two kids ages 14 and 10 and he kept them engaged the entire time. Peter's knowledge is amazing and he was able to weave together the historical aspects of Vienna with fascinating stories and places to visit; all within walking distance of our hotel. Peter also knew the best place to stop for great afternoon coffee and cake; where the locals can be found. This man is a gem and he made Vienna come alive for us. We loved his enthusiasm, knowledge and his ability to customize a great experience for our family. Whatever you do, make time to hire this guy - worth every penny!
