A fascinating insight into The Third Man film and also the state of Vienna just after the war. Our leader was exceptionally knowledgeable and spoke both in German and English. Lasting about two hours it was a worthwhile if exhausting experience. Thoroughly recommended.

The Third Man is one of my favorite movies, so I was so excited to take this tour. But even if you're not familiar with this movie, I think the tour would still be a great way to learn about the fascinating history of postwar Vienna. Christopher was a funny and knowledgable tour guide and enthusiastic about taking photos of... More

A wonderful experience with a brilliant guide. Very informative and backed up statements with evidence using film stills. So much fun seeing the locations of the film and the way several places were used in filming what looked like one place. Much background knowledge given of Vienna in the post war period. Thank you so much Christopher for such a... More

If you've ever seen The Third Man you really should take this tour. If you haven't, go see it in Vienna at the Burg Kino cinema (where it plays most days) and then take the tour. Our tour guide Barbara was very knowledgeable about the movie and did a wonderful job on this two hour tour. We were shown many... More

We loved the knowledge of our very experienced guide. I highly recommend this, however it was deceptive advertising and we were disappointed. The invitation to buy has a picture of the sewers, but this is not part of the walk, nor is even the trap door entrance to the sewers. At the end of the tour you are told you... More

Hi there, I am sorry you were dissapointed of our tour. But the sewer is simply not part of our tour. We run an OVERGROUND tour - no underground. And that is said at the very beginning of the tour to prevent any dissapointment! We even hand out little brochure and explain the difference between the sewer tour and our... More

Our guide clearly loved 'The Third Man' film and Vienna, and was knowledgeable about both. Her desire to share both this love and knowledge made this a fascinating and immensely enjoyable walking tour. Apart from the Big Wheel at Prater and the cemetery, we went to every significant location in the film. At each spot, our guide gave us relevant... More

A super experience in German, and Wing Commander is limited to English, Spanish and French. To get Vienna and the tour, you must see the movie first. Please wait for the English tour as the great AV shows underground are only in one language. Staff offered English sidebars but we booked the German tour and German it was. In days... More

Although we had booked on line, we found the meeting point difficult to find but once we arrived, we were made very welcome by Christopher and the other walkers. I was a bit dubious how my poor feet would stand up to 2.5 hours walking but we had lots of stops to look at things and even in the pouring... More

Even if you don't have a big interest in the fate of Harry Lime from the 1948 film, this excellent walking tour will tell you much of the city's history and recent events. I was a big fan of the movie and couldn't wait to get home to play it again with my new knowledge. Great experience!

Took this tour on a recent visit to Vienna. The chill and fog really contributed to the ambiance, but the guide was kind enough to take some stops to warm up along the way. Learned a great deal about the making of the film, as well as some general post-war Vienna knowledge. Recommended.
