Highly recommended!

Old town tour with Lisa was

*very informative - she's knowledgeable
*funny - she presents history facts with smart humor, she is a great story teller,
*professional - she's well-organized.

We really enjoyed the time with Mona Lisa - we learned some stunning facts listening to local Viennese with absolutely great energy and remarcable level of english commenting the history, architecture and social behaviours. We even forget about the windy weather during the tour ;)

Bravo !

We were in two minds about doing this free tour largely on the basis that in this world you generally get what you pay for. On this occasion I was happy to be wrong. Our excellent guide Katerina was both knowledgeable and fun bringing to life over 1000 years of history with great explanations in English. We felt like we really got a good intro to the city which has helped us to figure out what else we’d like to see whilst we’re here.
Obviously the tour wasn’t free in that we tipped at the end but worth every single cent that we paid. Highly recommended as tour guides in Vienna and highly trained and professional.

Signed up to the free walking tour on our first day in Vienna and was not disappointed!

Guided by Wolfgang who was excellent, witty and very knowledgeable. There was about 25 people in our group, but Wolfgang was loud, ensuring everyone could hear.

The tour was 2.5 hours with a coffee/toilet break in the middle. Highly informative!

The tour ends close to the river to pop over the outdoor bars and coffee shops at the end if you have time, and watch the world go by!

Dear Fiona, Thank you so much for your feedback and your valuable review. We are very proud of how hard our certified guides work on a free walking tour in order to provide the best quality tours (in English, German and Spanish) in Vienna. It is wonderful to hear that you enjoyed Wolfgangs anectodes and knowledge of the city and that you have been fascinated by the presented history of Vienna. The idea of our free walking tours is that you get to know briefly the main highlights to have the opportunity to visit them again if you are eager to enjoy them more. The end of the tour is indeed in a great area to stroll around and enjoy the flair of cafés at the Donaukanal. We hope you had a perfect stay in Vienna and we would be happy to welcome you again. Whenever you are back in Vienna, you know where to find us! Have a lovely day,
