          Our family of 5 had the best private tour of Vienna thanks to Peter owner of WIENGUIDE PRIVATE TOURS. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting a personal, up-close, and wonderful experience of the beautiful sites Vienna has to offer. From the first email with Peter I knew I selected the right Private Guide. He asked me a few questions about what we are looking for in a tour. I told him a little about my husband, our 3 children (all girls - ages 17, 19 and 21) and I. We requested to visit every location others had ranted and raved about in his many 5 star reviews.  We first met Peter when he picked us up in his extremely luxurious Mercedes van at our hotel to transport us on the first day of our 2 day tour. Our tour was supposed to begin with a walking tour but due to inclement weather Peter recommended we change our itinerary. I’m thankful for his recommendation so we would be more comfortable and enjoy the sites. He showed us some amazing, beautiful sites!!! Peter speaks excellent English. He will take you to unique places and tell stories that make what you are seeing come alive. He is very friendly, knowledgeable, laid back, professional and a very careful driver and clearly wants to give you the best experience possible. He is a local and loves his home very much. He shared the rich history of his city and country. He had wonderful stories to tell of his childhood and his family- this made the tour very enjoyable. Whatever you're looking for, he'll find it. Peter tailored the trip to our ability and comfort level. He is willing to accommodate everyone's comfort level, gently encouraging each of us to experience each of these unique locations to the fullest. Our tour took us through many sites including Schönbrunn Palace, Belvedere Palace and Saint Stephen’s Cathedral.  Peter set the perfect pace for our two day tour and we left feeling as though we'd made a friend.  It was absolutely one of the best, if not the best, days of the trip. He knew the answer to almost every question we asked him. The scenery was breathtaking! We have the most amazing pictures of our trip! He was very kind and took family photos for us.  If you're doing a tour of Vienna (which you should be), do yourself a favor and book Peter! The cost of the tour was extremely reasonable and he's worth every penny! Skip the group tours that take you to only the big tourist spots, on their schedule. Peter’s tours are totally customized, you'll see significantly more, and you'll be a lot more comfortable in his van than a tour bus. It's really like hanging out with a friend, who happens to know all the best spots. No need to plan ahead, take your rental car on the roads of Vienna and risk damage, figure out your way around or where to park, wonder if you saw everything you should have or end up in divorce court because of your husbands driving. Just call Peter get your camera ready, and let him take care of everything else. You'll be glad you did! Highly recommended for all ages!

          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!

          Very knowledgeable
          We did a private half-day car tour of Vienna with Max in late July, 2023, and liked it so much, we did a private tour of Schönbrunn with him later that week. He is very knowledgeable about Vienna and Austrian history, and conveys his interest and passion in it so well. He's able to get places we wouldn't have found or known about, skip lines, and point out what's really important about a site, painting, or sculpture. We would highly recommend Wienguide Tours and Max in particular.

          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.

          Exceptional – highly recommend using this company for your tour
          Exceptional. Peter is not only incredibly knowledgeable about Vienna and its history, but he also has a wonderful sense of humor and imparts the details in a thoroughly fun and interesting way. We hung on his every word! We booked a private tour around Vienna and to Schönbrunn Palace under Peter's guidance, and to say everyone loved his style and the tour itself would be an understatement. Plus he also catered for our multi-lingual group with ease. Amazing on every level and we had a wonderful day. I would use Peter again in a heartbeat and have passed his details to several of the group who would like to use him again and/or recommend to friends and family travelling to Vienna. Peter can also help with coaches if needed and gave some great guidance for our trip overall. Superb – highly recommended.

          Rich Vienna History and Culture with Maximilian
          My wife and I took a private four-hour tour guided by Max. Max is a young man with knowledge of Austria and a gift for being a professional guide that are beyond his years. Some of this is owed to the tour company is a family enterprise. Max was accommodating at every turn and open to all questions that we would ask – and he had the answers. His historical knowledge is deep. We highly recommend Max and his associated company for being professional, friendly, knowledgeable and fun at every turn.

          Best First Day Visit to Vienna - with Max
          Perfect first day in Vienna … “lovely city what should we see? Let’s book a private tour… “ best investment for your Vienna visit! Max met us at hotel with an extremely comfortable vehicle and warm outgoing personality. He knows so much and kept us entertained with energetic details and stories as we drove. We were jet lagged so keeping us going shows his skills! Of course we stopped at some fabulous places, which we are going to revisit this week. No rush, no worries private tour - if you want to “hang out” at a great location or restaurant, enjoy. Take his recommendations on “should see, should eat, should drink.” He knows the places and the people. In fact - my family is trying to hire him for another trip as I write. We took his card and are going to ensure anyone going to Austria knows Max & Company. Best first day you can have in Vienna.

          Private Tour of Vienna with Max
          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.

          A Top Flight City Tour
          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.

          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 !!!!

          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!

        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.
