Thank you! Your positive feedback is such an encouragement to our whole team of terrific historian guides in Central Europe at the toughest moment that we've ever experienced in our industry. All of us at Insight Cities can't wait to welcome overseas travelers back to Central Europe and we're excited to be touring our first local groups this week in the months since the pandemic started. Hoping to see you again on Insight Cities tours in Prague, Berlin, Budapest and the next city we're launching, Munich. Thanks again for your review. Glad you enjoyed it!

An extremely knowledgeable guide, very precise and enthusiastic. She was very pleasant and nice so the tour has been great. On our way back to town we planned to stop at Maiolica House and she was so kind to illuminating us on the subject and to stop by with us.
She is very well equipped with devices so she can start talking while you reach the place to visit.
So we highly recommend her and we will book her again if we return.
By the way: very very good English
Thank you so much for the fantastic afternoon

The tour with Katarina was fantastic! Us as adults and our kids thoroughly enjoyed it, and the amazing history of the palace. Things were put into interesting historical perspective, and her knowledge about both this palace and the others in the region associated with it was incredible. Our kids were kept interested, and Katarina was patient to answer all their questions.
I must also compliment the tour company as well, as I accidentally booked the wrong date (a week later than we were there), yet they managed to support us and arrange a guide with nearly no prior notice. It was only a couple hours before what I thought was our tour that they fixed my error and arranged a guide for us. (very sorry for the trouble!). Looking forward to future visits to Vienna and booking through them.
Regards Katarina, and thanks for the wonderful experience!

Ilse was a fantastic guide. We were lucky enough to be the only ones who booked it, which allowed us a private tour through schloss schönbrunn and the gardens. We could ask as many questions as we liked and got to know so much more then we would have with an audioguide or big group.

If you love (habsburg) history and are going to visit, this is definitely worth the money.
Thank you!

Great tour of the palace with a really friendly and knowledgeable guide. Certainly had a much better experience than if we did the tour independently.

the pre joining instruction sent is fantastic. The historian guide, Ilse, is excellent. She is very knowledgeable, patient and very good in explaining the history of the palace in simple words.
