        Peter is amazing and his historical knowledge and storytelling ability are unequaled!
        This tour was a highlight of our 2 week visit following the Danube. Peter provided such access to historical sites and the associated history from the mid-evil times through WW2 and present governments. My dad couldn’t get enough of the WW2 history and we all raved about the tour and Peter for days! If you want a private historical tour, this is it!

        3 perfect days in Vienna/Salzburg with Max!
        We booked 3 days of private tours with this company, and we had Max (owner’s son) for all 3 days, which offered consistency & great experience. We did city tour of Vienna, private tour of Schonbrunn Palace, & full day to Salzburg. Max was on time, attentive, informative, used multiple formats to share facts, & made sure to pace tours perfectly to our needs. He took care of us well, and we’re family ranging in age from 22 to 82 years old. Highlights were Schonbrunn & day trip to Salzburg. Salzburg was amazing, views were magnificent & we also had lunch at oldest restaurant in Europe that used to be an Abbey. Highly recommend this company & Max if you’re visiting Vienna!

        Another great tour with Weinguide
        We have used Weinguide quite a few times and with excellent experience, so we did it again. We have been to many parts of Austria with Peter of Weinguide and he suggested that we visit Steyr. He is right. It is not a dazzling city but it has its charm, calmness, and history. Max took us there and he is a good steady driver and an excellent knowledgeable guide. We met Max when he was a bit younger and now he is old enough to be guiding us. We enjoyed his company and conversations and it made the tour seemed short and time just flew by. I would highly recommend Weinguide to anyone who wants to visit Austria. Peter and Max would give you a tour you would not forget.

        best guide in vienna
        Max got to know us in 1 day and this with an unprecedented passion for such a young guy. The history was told to us with passion and the themes were immediately adapted to our interests. Also, everything I could wish for was arranged before we even thought of it ourselves. Top, wunderbar, parfait, perfect !!!!

        Fabulous walking tour with Wienguide private Tours in Vienna

        IF YOU WANT THE BEST GUIDES TO ANYWHERE IN AUSTRIA - LOOK NO FURTHER!
        We did 2-day trips with Wienguide Tours and we cannot stress enough how amazing they both were! One of our day trips was with Peter and he took us to see much of Vienna's main attractions - and then some! We went to Belvedere Gardens, Schonbrunn Palace & Gardens, and several cathedrals and historical places, and gave us so much history that we were amazed at it all! Peter knows his history and we soaked it all up. I love how flexible he was and he made sure we had a day to remember. Then, we spent the next day with Max and he took us to see much of the Danube. This is a must-see - and if you want to see a place that is only SECOND after the most beautiful cathedral/church/abbey in the world (with the Vatican/Sistine Chapel being the top), go to Melk Abbey. Max knew we would love this and we cannot thank him enough for taking us here! We also got to go on a boat down the Danube and we saw towns straight out of a fairytale. You HAVE to have either Max or Peter because they are both so knowledgeable, friendly, flexible, and charismatic. Excellent communication, safe driving, safe touring, and the highest quality vehicles. They get 12 stars out of 10!

        Vienna Touring
        We had two different tours with Max - one for Salzburg and one in Vienna Woods. Despite the weather Max did the best to make us comfortable. He was engaging, connected well to the teenagers, ensuring that everyone enjoyed and partook in the history of Vienna and Austria. Max also even brought us jackets and hats as the weather caught us by surprise. He was incredibly careful with driving and his love for history made the rides engaging. He made sure we had the very best experience and we will definitely be back as a family both to Vienna and with Max and his family. Thank you for everything!

        Wonderful from start to finish!
        This tour was fabulous from beginning to end. Max, our tour guide, was accomodating, well prepared with umbrellas and rain jackets (the weather was not the best when we started the day) and very knowledgable and passionate about the history of Vienna and each place we went! Melk abbey, salzburg, and Halstatt were all so enjoyable. We were guided to some hidden gems that we would not have found ourselves. The car was very comfy for a full day trip. Well worth it! Thank you for a wonderful tour!

        Customized wine tasting in the Wachau Valley
        Peter let us customize the tour to include 2 wine tasting stops. He added just enough stories and humor to the history and sights in the Wachau valley. Excellent english skills and he also set up a little charcuterie at our last tasting. We would highly recommend him. Group of 13.

        History in a funny, personal and very interesting way!
        It was a funny, interesting tour. I wish I had such a historic teacher at school :-) I know the historic buildings in Vienna very well but to hear secrets about the history of your city is something different. I recommend this tour to everybody who is interested in the history of his own country (maybe historic lessons are long ago), for schools and tourits. Or maybe you like to have a funny walk with your friends through the inner city of Vienna. Additionally I recommend tours with Peter also outside of Vienna.....

        2 day trip Vienna to Salzburg,Neuschwanstein castle, Munich
        We (college aged son and Mom) set up our own 2 day basic itinerary with Weinguide tours and everything was perfect. Max picked us up from our hotel in Vienna and we set off for Salzburg. He entertained us with stories of Vienna, Salzburg and Austria past and present. My son and I were incredibly impressed with his history knowledge and his entertaining story telling skills. He accompanied us through Salzburg and then gave us recommendations for dinner in Salzburg that evening. The next day we set off for the castle which was amazing despite very unfavorable weather. From there max took us to our hotel in Munch where he dropped us off at our hotel with a fond farewell. He was professional, entertaining and personable throughout the 2 days we spent with him. I highly recommend Max as a tour guide and also noticed that their wienguide.net website lists all the other guides they have available so you can read about them and select the guide that seems perfectly suited to your travel needs.

        Private tour to Budapest
        Peter took our family of four on a private tour to Budapest. Everything was very professional - from the timely pick up, his private van, to the drive to/from Budapest and local tour. The family felt instantly comfortable with Peter - he is very knowledgeable, funny, enthusiastic and he kept us engaged with stories and historical facts on both Vienna and Budapest as well as his personal insights. At the end of the tour, we all felt like we gained a friend! If you need a high quality tour, go with a great tour guide such as Peter and his team.

        Private custom Wachau Valley tour
        Peter had no issues customizing our day trip exactly as we had specified. Door to door service from our hotel in the city center to several weinguts and a tour of Durnstein. He is very knowledgeable of all things related to the area and did a great job keeping our 9 year old engaged the entire day. We really appreciated that the only thing we had to do was let him know what we wanted to do and he took care of contacting the weinguts and scheduling the entire thing. That is exactly what we want from a custom trip!

        Best day of our trip!
        The other reviews you’ve read are all accurate! This tour was wonderful. We had Max, Peter’s son, as our tour guide and he was everything you could hope for in a guide — gracious, charming, patient, and knowledgeable. He wanted to know what we wanted to see and adjusted the trip when he could. We saw beautiful Melk Abbey, the incredible lake region of Hallstatt, and walked the streets of Salzburg. I really chose the tour because of Salzburg, but the other stops were just as enchanting. Max made sure we understood the historical significance as well as the culture of each point of interest, and he did so with humor and humility. I think he was the best tour guide we’ve had in our travels, and we’ve had some wonderful tours in our three trips to Europe over the last two years. I’m so glad we found this tour! I’m sure any tour offered by this company will be wonderful! It’s a family business and they take pride in what they do.

      Peter is my best personal tour guide ever ! He is a walking encyclopedia on the Austrian history and the Habsburgs and is incredibly witty in the way he brings history and context to life. We undertook a 1 day private tour in his Tesla for the two of us and went up to the Vienna Woods. We had planned this with Peter over emails and it was just perfect. He is super accommodative and friendly and there was never a dull moment with him in the car over 7 hours. We are now planning for our next trip to Austria (would be 8th for me) and would be seeking his services again. Thank you Peter for an incredible day's experience !

      We thoroughly enjoyed this tour with our guide Max. He was friendly and fun but also had a wealth of information on the city and was able to answer any questions we had. The tour really gave us an insight into Vienna’s history and present day culture. We loved it! The only advice I would give is to make sure of your meeting place ahead of time. We were a little confused at the beginning but other than that everything was great.

      My sister and I had such a wonderful experience with Peter. He made Vienna come alive for us and until now we can remember the history lessons Peter gave. I will go back to join another tour with Peter at the drop of a hat. He is accommodating witty and helpful. He even offered to pick up a friend from the train station and have her join our tour FOC. His son, Max, was also involved in the second part of our tour in Salzburg and he is terribly helpful. I miss Peter’s delightful company and history lessons already

      Our Guide Max was simply outstanding. His knowledge and energy is impressive and his ability to provide just the right amount of information is truly remarkable for a young man. Very personable and great attitude.
      Our first visit to Vienna and on the first full day we did the 4-hour City Tour which was fantastic. On the second day we went on the 7-hour tour to the Danube Valley, boat trip to Melk and a visit to the Abbey.
      Wow. Could not more highly recommend this tour and our guide.

      Max did a fabulous job. First communications was spot on which i appreciate. Arrived early, texted and had a comfortable van for transportation. Max was enthusiastic and engaging. He knew the city well both the primary historical spots and the hidden gems off the beaten track. Highly recommended!

      The three hour tour was incredibly comprehensive, interesting, educational and just plain fun. Our gude Max was thoroughly knowledgable, entertainiing and delighful. He knows Vienna like the back of his hand, and showed it with pride and love. This was, quite frankly, the best city tour we've ever experienced. Well worth the cost.

      First of all! Peter is very kind and provided quick responses... especially with our last minute request (less than 2 weeks for private tour in high peak season).

      He was able to make it happen, he gave us options to use Tesla or Mercedes. We selected Tesla just because it was only the two of us. It was just an amazing ride from vienna-salzburg-vienna.

      The biggest surprise was when he sent us the driver and the guy was his son, Max. Max just fantastic, in a short time we become friends and the whole trip felt like the three of us make a trip together and had so much fun!
      It was a wonderful trip.

      That trip just beyond our expectations, we both agreed that we’ll come back to Austria and we’ll use their service again! Most importantly Peter and Max became our new friends in Austria. Great family!

      Cheers,

      I always book private tours in the countries I visit for the first time. What I really appreciate about the WeinGuide, is that Peter took into account the important things we wanted to see and learn about to plan our agenda. We were pleasantly surprised by Karl who met us at our hotel on the most awful rainy day possible! Through hell and high water, Karl gave us an amazing history of Vienna while seeing the most important parts of the city. He was great at pointing out the places we should explore more on our own time and taking us into the places that were really special. What we didn’t realize at the time, as we continued our trip on to Budapest and Prague, was that Karl had totally set up our historical knowledge for these countries as well. I was so inspired, that I can’t wait to tuck into my next book on the Hapsburg Dynasty.
