On our first day in Vienna, we joined the (daily) 'Vienna at first glance' walking tour that starts near the tourist office next to the Albertina. Our guide knew her city very well, and it was a pleasure to discover the city center this way....More

This is the official guided tour offered by the city of Vienna. It is billed as a bilingual German-English tour, but the German-language explanations seemed to be much more extensive than the English-language ones. Both the "highlights" tour and the "hidden corners" tour focused on...More

Took the Dances and Balls Tradition walking tour and sorry to say it was awful. Our guide Karl was quite nice but the description is quite misleading in the guide and the other reviews were right. You don't actually get to see anything to do...More

My wife and I wanted to make sure that no one else wastes their money on this tour. For starters, the tour was half in German and half in English. So the tour was "double" the time. In our tour group we had about 10...More
