About
The perfect half-day tour for first-time visitors, this sightseeing experience in Vienna’s center is led by a private guide for a personal experience. The 3.5-hour tour visits three of Vienna's most important attractions: Belvedere Palace, the Ring and Heldenplatz, and St. Stephen’s Cathedral. Weather permitting, there will be a surprise "rooftop view" portion of the tour, and a snack break at a traditional Viennese café or a tucked-away beer garden to keep you refreshed as you traverse Austria's capital city. Public transport and food are at your own expense.

I didnt Enjoy this tour
Sep 2019
I had really high expectations for the this tour, but it left me with much more to be desired. The guide came across as a bit rude and or unyielding at times. I had a tour in Berlin, Prague and Vienna. The one in Vienna was my least favorite. For what I paid, I was expecting a better tour. I feel like most of the places we went I could have gone by myself for a fraction of the price. The information provided during the tour wasn't really that interesting.

Wonderful!
Jan 2019 • Friends
Our group of six had a fabulous morning with Walter. His knowledge of the city and its history was second to none. From a very interesting visit to the Military Museum (a must if you are interested in the history of Austria) to a private viewing of the wonderful cakes on display at Demel's - we did it all. Highly recommended. Thank you Walter for making our visit so informative and enjoyable.

Fantastic Guide
Jan 2019 • Family
Over the last several years, our family has learned that a fantastic private guide can unlock a great city in wonderful ways and is a travel indulgence that dramatically enhances the experience. Walter Schindl has certainly entered the list of the top guides that we have been privileged to enjoy anywhere in the world.

In addition to being a vault of knowledge about Vienna’s history (and European/World history in general), his dry sense of humor fit very nicely with our family. We ended up using him for two separate half days...one inside the inner ring and the other outside of it.

Book Walter well in advance as he (not surprisingly) is often reserved several months out. We could not have been happier with him and will absolutely hire him again when we return to Vienna.

We enjoyed a memorable morning taking the Vienna Highlights tour. Walter is very knowledgeable and amusing making the tour informative and fun. We managed to see so much in a short space of time and would never have found our way to all of the major sites or encountered hidden gems in the city without such a good guide. Walter also tailored the tour to include things that were of special interest. This is a stress free way to see as much as possible in one morning, allowing us to plan the rest of our sightseeing at leisure. I am very happy to recommend this tour.
