We had Ian as a city guide. He was simply the best. And I've had tours in 110+ countries. He was incredibly knowledgeable, super fun & funny, great personality and more. The tour ended up lasting almost 8 hours. It included off the beaten track and famous Vienna attractions. Plus a tremendous amount of additional recommendations that made us wish we had extra time in Vienna. We only wish we had more cash for an even more generous tip. Really, I mean it - he was the best.

Best Tour we've experienced during three different cities.

Absolutely the best tour of our two week European family vacation. Hernando is fun, engaging, knowledgeable and just the perfect guide. We shifted to this tour when a heat wave came through Vienna-- his Mercedes van was cool and comfortable. We spent five hours driving to amazing sights and getting a real feel for the city then Hernando adjusted the two hour walk to allow visits to key museums to keep us out of the heat. He is a certified tour guide and American ex-pat who made the day a great event for my family that included an 18yr old son and 16yr old daughter. You can't go wrong having a tour with Hernando!

Our tour guide Hernando was amazing for the full five hours of the tour, keeping us informed and entertained, as well as adapting the tour to our interests. The first part of the tour involved driving around the beautiful city of Vienna, stopping at multiple locations and giving us a really good flavour of what Vienna has to offer. The second part was a walking tour through the beautiful central part of the city, seeing up close the wonderful architecture and rich history. Highly recommended to anyone visiting Vienna.

Our tour guide Hernando was great! We were a family of 7 ranging from ages 13-70 and he kept all of us engaged. We toured the Schönbrunn Palace, had a driving tour of other sites in Vienna, had lunch in a local restaurant and a 2 hour walking tour. It was a rainy day so our itinerary was adjusted for weather and we did not visit Grinzig. Our tour ended at a local Christmas market. Hernando was friendly, knowledgeable and a wonderful guide and the car and driver were also nice. I highly recommend this tour for a mix of walking and sitting and seeing quite a bit of Vienna in a short amount of time.

Ms. Cornellia Tour Guide and Mr. Aamir Our Driver were true professional. We had true 7 hours personal 1:1 Attention. As we sat in the coach car for our tour, Ms. Cornellia ask our wishes and things we are keen to see or do. She gave options, and made suggestions. We spent our time very judicously and we could achieve a lot. We saw all the 3 places, Opera from inside with personal tour by Ms. Cornellia our wish, down town, stephan platz church, National library must See from inside. I would definately do it again and recommend.Best Value For Money!!!
