    First day tour
    We arrived in Vienna after an Int’l flight from the US and wanted to keep moving to help adjust to the time zone. I booked a 3 ht walking tour. This was a great way to orient us to the old city. We quickly hit many of the old churches an Christmas markets. The tour can be customized to what you want. We also had a tutorial on the transportation & ticket options.

    Vienna Tour
    We booked a 6 hour tour and explored major attractions in Vienna. Our guide was Matteo. He was very knowledgeable about major city sites and local culture. We made two stops at adorable cafes per our request. Highly recommend this tour if you want to get a good overview of this magical city from a local’s perspective.

    Inspiring Tour of Vienna
    Vienna is a stunning city, and we had a really great guide for our tour of the city. Hernando -Columbian by birth, American by upbringing, and now living in Vienna--knows the city and knows Americans. So, we had a great time with him, we saw a lot and learned a great deal. Including a lot of history that Austrians would not go into (the locals are reticent to discuss some topics, especially WWII) Unlike a lot of well-intentioned guides, Hernando did not bury us in details. Just the most important points, we told him at the outset, and that's what we got. As a result, we probably remember more about Vienna, than any other city that we have toured.

    Smart, thoughtful and engaging.
    Martin was our guide. We got more than we expected. He met us for coffee in city center and got to know about us in a short period of time. He adjusted his tour according to what we told him about things that we liked. We had so much fun. And he had a ton of history in his back pocket. He pulled out his phone and show us maps of regions, historic moments and old photos of Vienna. We absolutely loved it! We would highly recommend him to anyone headed to Vienna!

    Everything we could have wanted
    Our tour with Jeff was energetic and informative! He gave us some brief history, and some great local recommendations for the rest of our trip. He customised the tour to what we were looking for and offered plenty of suggestions of things for us to do with the rest of our time in Vienna. He was very knowledgeable about the city and knew the streets like the back of his hand.

    Great Investment of Time and Money
    A great way to see Vienna! We were on a strict time budget, and this tour helped us make the most of the hours we had. Our guide, Jeff, proved to be a wealth of information, and he took us to a lot of top spots in our brief window of time together. Definitely recommend this tour!

    Miserable Experience and Wasted Precious Time in Vienna
    I noticed the same "local" tour guide's name in another bad review. They paired us with someone who was from another county, had only been in Vienna for a year, and said that we would "learn about Vienna together." He had zero knowledge of the city. We ended our planned four hour tour after 30 minutes and still had to pay $40 (for 30 minutes of walking from our hotel to the subway) and fight for 2 days and numerous emails to both Lofaky and Get Your Guide home office to retrieve the other $120 owed to us. We feel it should have been a 100% refund since, in writing, we were promised a guide with historical knowledge of Vienna. Everyone was courteous, but it put quite a damper on our limited time in Vienna.

    2 hour walking tour
    Sacha met my mom and I at our hotel and took us on a lovely 2 hour tour around the area where we were staying (the first district). As requested, she gave us an overview about history, art, culture, and also pointed out local restaurant/cafe recommendations as we went. It was exactly what we had asked for and a great intro to the city in general.

    A holiday hiccup
    Unfortunately after waiting for 1/2 hour for our tour guide, Arion, who never showed up, we contacted the organizers who were most supportive of us, but could offer no guide. A refund was cooperatively arranged but when you are holidaying and want to understand the uniqueness of cultures today’s experience was not great.

    I sent my family on this tour with Ernst during our trip to Vienna. He picked them up at the hotel. They had an exceptional experience. I have never heard them rave this much about a tour before. They loved the experience and said Ernst was exceptionally knowledgeable and courteous. Thank you Ernst. You made their trip.

    A good way to see Vienna
    Ernst arrive on time at our Airbnb to pick us up. We took the subway to various points of interest and saw just about everything there is to see in Vienna. Ernst spoke really good English and was very knowledgeable. The only complaint I have is that the tour was too long and the 5 hour walk was without much break in between. I guess I should have chosen a shorter option.

We were met by Gaibiden whom we had booked for a four hour tour. He was on time and met us at the hotel as agreed. I have to say it was a very pleasant experience and we were glad we had booked him. He showed us how to get tickets for Vienna’s transport structure, where to go for good beer and helped us with some language difficulty when buying food from an on street vendor. He brought us to several well chosen places and explained the history of Vienna nicely. As a politics student he had a good appreciation of the history. Overall we were happy and glad we picked this tour.

Our tour guide was very nice and showed us many historical places, giving us dates and details of each. He contacted us days before and asked us if we had anything specific we’d like to do to better customize our tour. We went to many places, and were able to see Vienna with more context than what we could have had ourselves. He even got us into the University of Vienna to see the building inside! It was a great tour and I’d suggest it to anyone going. The only critiques I have are we had asked for more quiet and local places to eat/shop and the suggestions given weren’t what we were hoping. The other was during a part of the tour, our guide read some information to us about a stop we were making on the journey from a website. We still found the tour very helpful and suggest it to anyone coming to the city, but perhaps the smaller time allotment would be best. Perhaps the largest would be worth it as well, but our 3 hour tour seemed stretched a little.

We tested Lokafy services and decided to tell you everything about it because while traveling, everybody says: “travel like a local, not as a tourist”. Well, this is true and highly recommended but sometimes we don’t find all the information we need on TripAdvisor. Or maybe you have a friend living in that city but his/her habits are completely different from yours, which means s/he won’t have many places to recommend that matches what you’re looking for. What if you could find someone that has the same passions as you and know that city very well? This is exactly what Lokafy provides.
In Vienna we decided to test this service. It was the best decision we could’ve ever made. We knew the city is full of interesting history and we love to know these things. Counting on a local for providing all info and taking us to the places we wanted to visit was fantastic.
We met Lucas, our guide, very close to our hotel and he started taking us to several interesting places and telling all history envolved. Speechless! Everything we asked, he knew how to answer. He’s like an encyclopedia man! hahahah
How delighted was our day with our guide Lucas. It was completely enjoyable and yet educational. He’s passionate for history and we covered the major sights without no rush. We felt we got so much more out of our trip because of his easy way of explaining things. Lokafy have made of Vienna trip more meaningful. The prices are fair and reasonable.

The customised walking tour we had was wonderful! Our friendly lokafyer Sebastien Soules met us in our hotel as planned. It was a hassle-free experience. He was very knowledgeable. Not to mention the breath-taking landmarks, autumn views and alleys/streets we had traversed in 3 hours. Indeed, a remarkable and unusual experience of Vienna! Will definitely book viator on our next travel destination!
