I had researched finding a Vienna private tour guide - - and after some effort, and reading recommendations on TripAdvisor, I decided to go with Vienna A La Carte. It was a great decision.

They had Brenda (our tour guide) meet us at our hotel - - except due to some delays during our lunch, we weren't at the hotel. So I went back to the hotel quick, to let Brenda know were we where. After an chit-chat, I invited Brenda to come back with me to me our troop for lunch. We ended up having a lunch "primer" on where & what we were going to see. Brenda was fabulous - - outgoing, engaging, knowledgeable, and yet savvy enough to see when we were "full", and move on to the next topic. From the Habsburgs Palace, through the museum, and on to St. Stephens, and all the sights... Brenda was fabulous. We booked with Vienna A La Carte for three days of private tours - - and we would highly recommend them for guides.

My family and I traveled to Vienna last week and booked a day trip to Salzburg with Vienna A La Carte. From beginning to end it could not have been more perfect. Ulrich, our guide and owner, was right on time, the ride was comfortable and he was very knowledgable and shared many facts about Vienna, and Austria, along the way. The stop for coffee and strudel to break up the ride was perfect and the other stops along the way near the lakes were beautiful. He had made us a reservation for lunch at a lovely little restaurant which was delicious and reasonably priced. Our walking tour in Salzburg was great and then we had a little time to shop. The ride back to Vienna was an easy one and Ulrich was even kind enough to drop us off at one of the many Christmas Markets in the town center. He could not have been more accommodating. I would wholeheartedly recommend this company for this tour or any others that they offer. Thanks for a great experience, Ulrich.

Our group of 4 had the most perfet day in beautiful Vienna. Seeing all the sights we chose was perfect. We were able to pick exactly what we wanted to do and they also arranged tickets to the Mozart Symphony that evening which was a dream come true. They were pleasant and attentive during the whole planning of our day in Vienna. Dear Ulrich thank you so much.

Our delegation thorooughly enjoyed the short trips around Vienna and to Salzburg in October 2012. The tour guides were knowledgeable and their enthusiasm in sharing that knowledge shows. We will recommend this to anyone who wants to have a short overview of both Vienna and Salzburg. Try their more detailed tours if you have more time.

Our day trip to Budapest in October with Mr. Balacs Csekö as our tour guide was outstanding! Our needs and interests were addressed and we found the lively discussions during the tour enlightening. We can only hope that you might enjoy such a wonderful experience. From start to finish, all contact and interaction with Vienna A La Carte personnel (Herr Ulrich Hahnkamper and Mr. Balacs) was positive and enjoyable. Should we find ourselves in Vienna again, we will certainly avail ourselves of this outstanding service and would count ourselves very fortunate, indeed if we happened to be able to enjoy the company of Mr. Balacs again.
