Booked a tour in Vienna and went to Salburg for the day. Excellent service. It was a small group of seven people, we were supplied with an Ipad and Wifi. Ben the driver/ tour guide was extremely informative and very generous to everyone, nothing was a problem! Ben was an Australian which made us feel at home. Would definitely do a tour with them again. Just a small suggestion to the tour company is why they do not pick up from all hotels. The tour is not cheap and when you arrive back late at night and not knowing the area always a problem trying to get back to your hotel.

We had a wonderful day with Ulrich. He showed us all of the sights we were hoping to see and provided special insight into places and events that weren't in any of our guide books. He even handled all of my husband's questions. In addition to providing architectural, historical and cultural information, he also recommended a great lunch place and spots for cake and coffee. We would like to thank Ulrich for helping to make our trip one we will never forget.

We really enjoyed our all day trip to Salzberg with Julia and Naomi. There was breath taking scenary, a little bit of history, good food, a little free time, and the funny/quircky experience of driving in the Austrian mountains while listening to a few songs from the Sound of Music. All while riding in a really nice van with individual ipads.

We had the pleasure of working with this outfit for a private tour of vienna . Our guide was Brenda and there were two of us. It worked out great and I would highly recommend this group to people. The individual attention gave us a deep appreciation for the art,architecture and history of this beautiful city.
Our guide Brenda was wonderful . I had never participated in such private tours of this size before. It was a great way to see Vienna and I would do it again.

We chose the private tour option for a day in the Wachau Valley. Our group consisted of two couples in their sixties with no mobility issues. Ulrich met us in our hotel lobby promptly at 10am (our choice)and we boarded the clean, comfortable van. Ulrich had water bottles available and made suggestions for how to spend the day that suited us perfectly. We drove first to Melk Abbey, where Ulrich guided us through the areas of most interest to us and quietly provided details regarding what we were viewing without disrupting the "official" tour guide descriptions going on in the same rooms. Ulrich drove us to a restaurant we had selected online and luckily joined us for lunch as the menus were in German and we only spoke English. He was very helpful, even acting out some of the menu items when at a loss for translation. His English is excellent though (we are from the US and the other couple from Southern England). Although, we had planned for a little wine tasting, we dawdled so long over our lunch, which included wine, we skipped that and continued on to the historic, quaint town of Durnstein. We walked the town, sampled local products, and Ulrich led us to the key sites. Yes, it was considerably more expensive than a group tour; but we had the freedom to linger or proceed as our interests dictated. It's bang for the buck, and when you have spent so much to get to a destination, you want to feel you have really experienced all you could. Splitting the cost between two couples made the expense a little less breathtaking; and the van could have accommodated another couple comfortably, if you are traveling with more people.
