The tour with Annelie exceeded all of our expectations. She met my family and me at our hotel and gave us earpieces so that we could all hear her clearly throughout. Annelie was incredibly knowledgeable, and she tailored the tour and her remarks to keep everyone fully engaged. She had a useful binder with photos and drawings and an iPad with short vignettes to bring more of the history to life. She also honored the fact that this was a special trip for us because I wanted to see the neighborhood where my grandparents lived, which was coincidentally and conveniently near Annelie’s home. Her familiarity with the neighborhood (which would be part of the regular tour since it’s the 2nd district) made the tour even more personal. She then recommended and dropped us off at a truly local Italian restaurant (what my two teenage sons requested!) after introducing us to the staff at the restaurant. I had really high hopes and expectations for the tour because it was such an important, personal occasion and, again, they were all exceeded. Annelie made the visit even more memorable. I cannot recommend the tour more highly.

My family and I had a wonderful tour with Katarina! She was extremely knowledgable, friendly, and made our visit to Schonbrunn Palace very special. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who is hoping to make the most of their time at Schonbrunn.

Suzanne our guide was in her element!!! Her areas of study and work are historic landscape architecture and art history - where better to help people learn than Schonbrunn?! She is fluent in (at least?!) four languages, is enthusiastic, speaks with great volume and clearly, and really helps you make connections through the centuries that make Schonbrunn come to life. I especially liked the way she started at the map (see photo) so we could get a sense of the scale, and continuously dropped reference points "we will circle back to this later" then "remember I said?..." She is a pro and it is always wonderful to meet someone so passionate about their work.
