" Excellent Vienna tour guide "
4 out of 5 stars
Our guide was excellent. He was very knowledgeable, and able to give us a succinct history of Vienna and it's key sites while keeping us moving and covering a lot of interesting places. He also has a very loud voice which is great for a street walk. All the organisation and communications with me were professional, reliable and efficient. I highly recommend Vienna City Tours.
