“Excellent tour of the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

The tour of the Kunsthistorisches Museum was the third walking seminar my husband and I have taken with Context, the others being to Montmartre in Paris and the Vatican in Rome. We really appreciate two facets of the Context philosophy: the small "group" size, limited to six persons, and the expertise of the docents, who have advanced degrees that specifically pertain to the seminar they are leading. In the case of the Kunsthistorisches Museum, our docent was Alexa Brauner and she was so informative and enjoyable to listen to that the three hours we spent together flew by. The Kunsthistorisches, as with many museums, is vast, and the beauty of being with Alexa was that she selected and carefully organized highlights of what was on exhibit. We highly recommend Context and intend to take many more of its walks.

“Fabulous Walking Tour Of Vienna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

We took the three hour "Intro to the 1st District" walking tour in June in the pouring rain and 50 degree weather with our tour guide Martin. He did an unbelievable job keeping us interested in the sights and history of Vienna. He gave us all a coffee break just when we weren't sure we could take squishing around in soggy sneakers one more minute! Martin was quite knowledgeable and gave us great insights into the Hapsburgs and the history of this beautiful city (even in the rain!)

“Best of the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

We have taken multiple tours with Context Travel in Europe and our experience is always excellent. The tours are a little more money , but the small groups and educated docents make it well worth the extra expense.

We took "The Introduction to the 1st District" tour in Vienna on Saturday 10/27/2012 with Martin Seyer. The tour was top notch just as expected and gave us an excellent foundation of the city so that we could do further exploration on our own. Martin was knowledgeable about all aspects of the city and presented a breath of both architectural and historical information. Martin had a warm and hospitable personality and answered all questions as an expert on his subject matter.

I highly recommend Context travel in Vienna.
