Highlights include learning about Hitler's life, visiting some of the Jewish buildings standing in the Old Town, and checking out damage the city endured during World War II bombings.

This was an outstanding tour - truly, the best we've done on this multi-week visit to Prague, Budapest and Vienna. Dieter offered a comprehensive history of the period, fielded all questions with ease, and filled our time together with a detailed and concise analysis of the importance of Hitler's time in Vienna for what would come later.

Dieter was very straightforward in his assessment of the involvement of ordinary Austrians, both in their support of National Socialism and their resistance to it. We'd highly recommend doing this tour after you've first seen the excellent House of Austrian History, followed by lunch at the Cafe Central. We met up with Dieter for the tour at 2:30, and our time with him was a perfect way to end our stay in Vienna!

It's a shame there are only 5 stars, because Charles, or King Charles as we called him, was the most amazing tour guide I could've hoped for. First, let me start with what my personal expectations were. A 2.5 hour long tour of about 10 unique sites and stories to take in, most of which I could have gotten off the internet. I expected this to be more of a chance for me to see these historical sites in person, instead of just learning about them thru some history lesson on YouTube. I was completely wrong. Our tour probably stopped around 30 times to hear a masterful story told by Charles, who was obviously well informed in both the history and tradition of the eras leading up to, during and after WWII. I was not expecting Charles to be as informed as he is about the history of the Jews in Austria. Charles was personable and extremely easy to talk to. He stopped many times to address any questions we had as a tour group, and his answers to the questions were concise and informative. I must say, he also had me laughing a few times during the tour. I could not have asked for a better tour guide, and tour in general, and would be willing to do this again in the future. Similar to watching an amazing movie for a second time just to catch anything I might have missed the first time. To be honest with you, I don't leave reviews... at all. But after this experience, I felt like I would be doing you a disservice by not telling you how amazingly awesome this tour and Charles, in particular, was. If the history of the Jews in Austria during WWII intrigues you, then there is only one place to experience it at, and it is with this tour. Charles, I hope you are reading this as well, thank you my friend. I look forward to one day coming back and doing the tour with you again!

It is important to keep this part of history well-known and to teach about it. So, Charles is really doing not only a great job but also a very important one. We would love to have you back in Vienna on our tour again. So, whenever you're back in town, let us know. We will be glad to be at your service again. All the best, Siri

Touring Vienna with a Hitler ‘key’ is a wonderful - though painful - way to see a city well beyond its monuments, through history made alive under our very eyes. We owe this amazing experience to our guide Dieter: a historian at heart, Dieter opened up his world to us and dragged us into a fascinating storytelling of Hitler’s times. He shared not only events, dates, names and people profiles, but also his own personal reading of events and the Austrians’ attitude to this part of their history. Dieter was much more than a guide: similarly to Dante’s Virgilio, he shared a knowledge that came from the heart, asking profound questions and opening inner spaces of reflection to all of us. Thank you Dieter!

Stefan was an excellent guide to the city and history of Vienna, with a great depth of historical insights. Our tour also clashed with recent protests, and he perfectly balanced keeping the tour on track, whilst making everyone feel safe and welcome during an interesting few hours in the city!
For those interested in the tour, it's base is around the early life of Hitler in the city, the city's history with anti semitism through the ages, the Hapsberg empire, and how the city itself changed during WW2.

Would absolutely recommend!

The Hitler Vienna tour was absolutely amazing. First of all, the organisation was impeccable and both the assistant and the guide were very welcoming and took good care of the group. Dieter the guide was a pleasure to listen to and gave good explanations to the very complex topic, so we could get a comprehensive overview as well as many fascinating details. I especially appreciated that he didn't shy away from the difficult issues such as the role of Austria in the whole story and presented the topic in a nuanced and humane way. My friend and me are both tour guides ourselves (in the neighboring country with another complicated past) and have thought a lot about how to present the 20th century issues to groups - so we appreciated Dieter's tour even more. Kudos! Absolutely recommended!

We found every minute of the tour insightful and valuable. Dieter, our guide, had so much to share, including from his personal story. He brought to discussion topics like individual and collective responsibility, while underlining the duty not to forget. I truly recommend it.

This is by far a must do! It's important to learn from history and not ignore it. Our guide ( i forget her name but know that she is the director) was phenomenal. She brought so much emotion and reality to the story and the tour that it was impossible not to take it all in.

I only have one recommendation and that is to revise the name. My bff had to convince me to join this because as a Jewish woman and the granddaughter of 3 Holocaust survivors, the name had me concerned of the perspective the tour may take.

Our tour was called Hitler's Vienna Walking Tour, but this appears to be the same tour.

This was an excellent tour. It brought a good historical perspective to the life of Hitler and the history of Vienna during the time. Our family really found it to be interesting.

The tour company provided radios to hear the guide. I gave 4 out of 5 because the tour company was not prepared for additional patrons and were short on radios.

Hi there, Thank you so much for taking time to write a review! We truly appreciate the feedback. We apologize about the inconvenience with the radio devices, however, on that day, we had 9 extra guests who decided to join the tour last minute. We always carry 4-5 extra devices, but we surely did not expect so many people coming. Nevertheless, we were pretty proud that we managed to organise extra devices for everyone within 10 minutes from tour begin. We are glad you have enjoyed the tour and truly hope you had a fantastic stay in Vienna! All the best, Alessandra // Good Vienna Tours

First of all, thank you to the previous reviewer who had suggested visiting the House of Austrian History before taking this tour. I would have never known about the museum otherwise. In combination with this tour, it makes for a thorough and illuminating historical background on Austria in the 20th century.

We had Stefan as our guide. He is superb, and had our complete attention for the 2.5 hours of the tour. He gave a comprehensive and thought provoking analysis of the entire background of World War 2 in Austria, and importantly, was candid about Austria vis-a-vis the Anschluss. I've gone on so many tours where the guide rattles off names and dates in a dry and rote manner. Stefan gives it thought, depth, substance, relevance, and gets the big picture. Absolutely fascinating.
