Informative and very entertaining walking tour with Wolfgang. The tour started at the town square close to the Vienna Opera Theatre. Wolfgang was a font of knowledge and entertained the group with not only his knowledge of Vienna but also injected fun into the tour. The pace of the tour was excellent and we paused often to hear about the different areas and history of those areas. I have travelled the world and done tipped based tours all over. This was the best one I’ve done. Well done Wolfgang for your professionalism, knowledge and for being such an excellent ambassador for Vienna.

We joined the free walking tour on 22nd Jan at 11am with Wolfgang. The tour was a fantastic introduction to the city and its history. Wolfgang was incredibly knowledgeable and was skilled in delivering complex historical information in an accessible way. His humour and personality really added to our enjoyment of the tour. We would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Vienna.

The tour guide, Katherina, was excellent. She welcomed people to the tour individually and managed quite a large crowd with courtesy and good humour.

She has a first class knowledge of the history of not only Vienna but Austria in the context of its role in European history from Roman times to the 20th century conflicts.

Highly recommend this tour and if Katherina is your guide you can be sure of receiving a first class service.

Having been on a lot of walking tours before, I can honestly say this was by far the worst. The guide, Elizabeth, was knowledgable but lacked charisma and couldn’t keep our attention. I feel that she didn’t tell us anything new that we hadn’t heard already or could easily google search. Some of the information was very repetitive and the tour could have been broadened to include other areas nearby other than just around the Hofburg.

Hi Go, this is our basic introduction tour, if you already did one of our tours it is clear that you won't learn so much knew. All our guides have their personal strength, Elisabeth is super knowledgable and can tell you a lot about history, some others are way more funny and entertaining. If you check more review about Elisabeth you will see a lot of people appreciate the interesting content. Further more I would like to mention, that you can google now aways everything, so of course all the information you get on this tour is history what was written in books, which books are for sure to find online as well, just takes you 2 years of studying these books. Also Vienna has so much to offer, so it is impossible to show you everything within 2h therefore there is a concentration of the most important areas. If you would like to get to know even more, we recommend to book a private tour so we can adapt the tour design to your personal needs! all the best Charlotte Prime Tours Team

Ridiculously full tour. We couldn't even hear our guide half of the time, and what we heard consisted of random facts. Very poor voice projection. I didn't get any sort of narrative, which would help us understand more of the essence of the city. I expected more from a Sandeman partner.

Verified booking Travelled in couple - Jan 2024

Our guide was Michael. The information and the places we visited were perfect BUT he mentioned 3 times during our tour that his company keeps 4€ per person in the tour. That is something that should not be mentioned to concern the participants of the tour. By the way we decided to pay a good amount of money for two people. We asked to pay by card or PayPal or Revolut and he didn't have any option but ONLY cash. We didn't have any cash with us but only 10€. We gave him this amount and in front of the whole group he starting shouting that we give him ONLY 5€ per person for two hours. This is unacceptable for me. I even opened my wallet to show him that its empty. And he told me to go at the bank to withdraw money to give him more. It's a shame for the platform and what he did. This is not a pro attitude. We have traveled all Europe and it was the first time this happened to us and the first time there wasn't any way to pay with no cash.

This is a review of the Free Walking Tour Vienna Historical City Centre. I have done a lot of these types of tours in the past. Today's tour was unexpectedly bad. I can't remember the name of the tour leader which maybe speaks for itself. His delivery was boring - sure, he touched over Viennese history but I thought a walking tour was meant to showcase the sights of the city. We didn't move from the starting point of the tour until he had talked for over 30 minutes.

The tour sells itself as accessible - as does Vienna as a whole but that fairy tale is for another day. I was the only person on the tour in a mobility scooter so I can't believe the guide did not notice I was there, especially since my husband pointed this out at the start of the tour. On only the second time the group was moved, my mobility scooter had trouble due to very uneven cobblestone surface and lack of access ramps at the curb - not unexpected in an historic city but hardly accessible as stated on the booking page. By the time my husband and I had made it to where the group had moved to the guide had already started talking so we missed what he said. Given that his delivery was uninspiring we gave up on following when the group next moved and went to have cake instead.

Prime Tours sent an email encouraging me to review the tour, so here it is.

This Queer city tour of Vienna was fascinating. I liked to hear all the knowledge and information our tour guide Roderick shared with us. He did this in a very good way, so we didn't felt like in school, but together with a very good friend who knew (and experienced) a great deal about everything we saw around us. Would highly recommend it, even to tourists who feel outside of the LGBT World.

We did the Walking Tour in Vienna and it was amazing! We don't recall the tour guide's name, but we did it on April 4th 2022 at 3 PM. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the city and its history, gave us detailed information about a considerable number of spots and, at the same time, made it fun. I definitely recommend hiring Prime Tours in Vienna.

Very entertaining, historically informative two hour walking tour of the key sites in central Vienna. The host, Ricky, was very knowledgeable. He delivered in a humoured, well paced manner and allowed time for reflection upon the historical context and consequences of the sites visited.
