Owner description: Peter will be your local guide in Vienna! Admire the charm of the imperial city with me and hear, not only the facts about the 640 year old regency of the Habsburgs`, but also humorous, erotic and unbelievable details about the lives of the empress and emperor. Smile about grotesque courtly customs and shudder over murders, unsolved deaths and other criminal tales. It would be my pleasure, as a state approved tour guide.

“Wonderful Introduction to Vienna”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

We spent a three hour walking tour with our charming tour guide, Peter who met us at our hotel first thing Sunday morning. Peter, a very approachable and laid back person, definitely knew his history. It was a delight to learn all about Vienna with this extremely knowledgeable guide. You can tell, that he LOVES Vienna. WE felt like we definitely received our money's worth and would highly recommend Peter to others. I only wish we could have spent more time with Peter to explore the countryside. That will have just have to wait for our next visit. Thanks Peter!

“An inside look at Vienna”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

We traveled to Czech Republic, Germany & Austria with a bike tour, and ended in Vienna for an extended two days. Looked at all the offered tours on line, and read about Peter on Trip Advisor. He was very responsive to any e-mails, answering all questions promptly. You felt like you knew him before you actually met him. We started out as a couple and expanded to 7 people at the last minute, and he never skipped a beat nor changed his fee. Peter brought to life the history of Vienna (& Austria). We didn't just see the sights, we got insight into Vienna's history, and it's people. In my initial correspondence with him, I inquired about his recommendation regarding concert tickets and he quickly gave his recommendation and purchased the tickets for us before even meeting us.

One helpful hint: if you are interested in a concert, and Peter obtains them for you, ask him when it is best to arrive at the concert hall and if the seats are reserved in any way. We did not, arrived 10 min. before the performance and were in the last two rows of a large hall. Turns out, our tickets were for premier seats at the front! Nevertheless, we enjoyed the concert immensely and recommend it. Bonnie K, Sparta, NJ.

“Great Tour-Peter was wonderful”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

My wife and two adult children booked Peter for private walking tour in Vienna and enjoyed it very much. Peter is very engaging and you could really see his passion and love for the city come through. I have a very short attention span and Peter was able to keep me engaged and entertained for the entire two (2) hour tour. Our twenty something kids loved the tour and all in all I would highly recommend Peter if you really want the insight behind the sights in Vienna.

“Falling in love with Vienna”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Peter was extremely easy to work with and always responsive to any emails. He not only can give you all the facts but has a delightful sense of humor and interesting stories and behind the scene glimpses. We first did a car tour in the morning, took a break for lunch, and then did a walking tour. It was a fabulous way to acquaint ourselves with the city and to immediately know what we wanted to return to during our trip. Peter also secured outstanding seats to a Mozart concert at the Great Opera House. Highly recommend booking one of Peter's tours,n you will not be disappointed!

“Fantastic experience”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

We loved this tour and enjoyed Peter´s charming company. He is really an expert in making history atrtractive even when the matter is somehow difficult and strange. Many times visiting important cities we walked around on our own. This time we followed some friends advice and hire this experience. Totally right choice! Don´t miss the stories about the Augsburg family, so engaging and feel the atmosphere of the Graben square...
