We truly enjoyed our 2-1/2 hour walking tour today with Herbert and his dry sense of humor. We had already been in Vienna for 3 days and he showed us spots we had walked by many times and missed! I really liked the historical photos and maps he showed us on his tablet.

So many things we had missed!
May 2018 • Couples
We met our guide Herbert in St. Stephen’s Square and from the first few moments we began to learn about the history of Vienna. He had many images that were really helpful in imagining how old Vienna looked. I won’t tell you about what we saw as that will ruin the tour. We did learn about several things that we had walked by several times and had no idea of the significance. We learned about history, traditional foods, Mozart and WWII. We had lots of questions and all were answered along the way. We also stopped for a minute to say hi to the President of Austria as he passed by. I would certainly recommend this tour to anyone interested in the less touristy spots in central Vienna.
