But very charming on the other hand. I live in Vienna and this tour is eye-opening. Afterwards I saw the city from a different perspective and I was recognizing more details in the streets. I recommend it to everyone who wants to explore Vienna in a more unconventionall way.

Great fun, if you want to see something different and special. You will get some information and insight in to the city of Vienna that you cannot read in some other tour guides.

We live in Vienna, know most of its beautiful architecture and were therefore curious to see something different. The tour guide Eugene is funny and knowledgeable. The walk takes you to some of Vienna's nicest spots, contrasted by some truly horrible building designs. Will recommend this tour to our friends and visiting guests!

—Took an abbreviated version this tour as a part of the International Feature Conference (IFC) 2016.
—The guide, Eugene, was knowledgeable and entertaining. He shared a wealth of insightful information.
—After seeing a site, participants were asked if it was ugly or not? Good way to engage the crowd.
—It was nice to get a way from the city center a bit and explore other parts of the city.
—The walking and riding the subway allowed participants to get to know each other.

So, this is the third attempt to write the review, maybe now the minds behind Tripadvisor like it...

The Vienna Ugly Tour is a beautiful tour of ugly buildings and things in Vienna. The tour itself is controversal because one can not just go through the city and tell others about it, you would have to get special training.

Therefore it can happen that a guy from trade office / chamber of commerce joins the tour and takes busy notes about what Eugene said (he must not mention dates - What...?) and what not to fine him later.
I am glad we don't have any other problems... Welcome to "beautiful" Vienna.

Today even a native woman acted a bit strange, at first I thought it was part of the show, but she was genuinely upset that we did find the boxes with the controls for the traffic lights ugly. Strange people live here.
I know how weird that sounds. Take the tour, maybe it happens again.

If you want historical facts and dates, google them or take an "official tour" if you have to *yawn*.
If you want a cool, funny, refreshing tour join Eugene. For best effects of ugliness pick a cloudy rainy day. ;)
