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.
Please give a sitting break halfway through.
Alexa was extremely knowledgeable. It was very cold out and I think some of her stops were too long standing in a windy place. We started out for 20 mins standing outside of the fancy hotel (one with mosaic floor inside) getting an overview history of the Ringstrasse when this should have been done inside somewhere-- even the Marriott lobby would have been ok. She was delightful; unfortunately, the couple that joined my group completely hijacked the discussion a lot of the time. It was difficult for Alexa to take the lead graciously. At one time, the gentleman was lecturing me and the wife was lecturing Alexa. Maybe remind the guests that it is an opportunity for us to learn from the locals, not the other way around.
