Katharina is an exceptional guide and takes you back in time with ease. We had questions about many things Vienna, politics and art and she answered all of them with ease and accuracy. Very personable and would recommend her highly!
Robert provided an interesting foot tour of the Ringstrasse woven into Austria-Hungarian history. He pointed out physical remnants of the city wall and then explained and pointed out the many private “palaces” and Hapsburg palaces and properties. We were interested in Jewish history of Vienna. Robert explained and pointed out “palaces” and their connection to Jewish participation in the political and civil life of Vienna and Austria.
Your meeting point should be clearer..... instructions and address provided did not match the map so this created a little anxiety. Peter was excellent. Informative, well researched across many aspects of history. Loved the tour.
