Lisa was incredibly knowledgeable about Vienna’s history, was an captivating story teller, and introduced us to parts of Vienna we hadn’t known! We go on ghost tours every where we go and between New Orleans, Paris, Seattle, San Francisco, and Dublin this was the best! Thank you Lisa and we’ll recommend you to all of our friends!

The walking tour helped us understand both the history and layout of the city. It provided an excellent framework for all our following tourist activities. We really felt that Herbert had tailored His commentary and routeur response to our preferences.

Highly Recommended!

The three-hour city walk with Mr. Stojaspal was very informative and entertaining. We were not bored for a second. As an absolute insider, Mr. St. can provide valuable information that will make your stay in Vienna even more fruitful.
