I met our guide at Tourist Info Wien (right off the U1 line at Karlsplatz stop). He explained a lot of helpful history to us on the ride over and then had us watch a short documentary of the concentration camp on iPads in the van which was very wise. We got to Mauthausen with a greater and more In-depth understanding of what took place there which made our visit more meaningful. When we arrived we were given audio guides and a map and allowed to wander the camp and it’s museum on our own for a few hours before reconvening. It was pretty desolate aside from a few school groups visiting. Our tour guide was great and even drove us down into the granite quarry so that we could see it up close. We went to lunch at a nice but casual sit down restaurant that served Austrian cuisine. Overall worth the money and I highly recommend this tour.…

I’d like to say this was an managing tour, but that seems weird when you take into account the atrocities that happened here. Whilst I could only imagine the horrors that took place, it puts our lives into perspective & helps to understand what we have gained from those that lost their lives. The tour itself was great & our driver was knowledge. He even dropped us back to our hotel after the trip. If you are looking for an activity to really get you thinking & feeling, this is for you. See where so many lost their lives for the freedom that we all enjoy.…

We were met by our tour guide Fleming in front of tourist information in Central Vienna. Very easy to find and if you need a taxi this will get reimbursed. Comfortable vehicle. Drive out to camp gave us a chance to experience the beauty of the Vienna countryside. Our guide Fleming was extremely knowledgeable and told the history of Vienna and WW1 and WW2 tying it all together in an understandable way. You then watch a 40 minute documentary on the Camp which gives a visual perspective prior to the camp itself. On arrival you get a audio guide and move through the camp alone. I preferred this to an accompanying guide as you can spend reflective time in quiet areas. The tour ends in a modern and excellently curated area with very detailed information. Fleming took us down to the quarry as the Stairs of Death have been closed to the public due to safety reasons. My 13 year old daughter managed this tour well though there is a part in documentary that is very graphic. On the way home we stopped for lunch which is not included in the tour. In my view if you have the time this tour is a must to understand more fully the history of Austria. Thanks Fleming for sharing your knowledge. …

Review of: Private History and Art City Tour of Vienna
Really enjoyed our sightseeing trip. Our host was Fred who could not have been more accommodating. He pre-purchased tickets for Schoenbrunn Palace for us which saved a lot of time (We visited NY Day so it was very busy) Fred also tailored the tour at our request, so we could see the places we had identified to visit. Excellent Experience, Many Thanks…
