My husband and I were sick of the tiny tidbits of information we’d get from the standard ore-recorded audio guides usually offered so we opted for a private tour and it was absolutely worth it. I learned 500x more than I would have otherwise, and I got to ask questions! It was perfect for us. I still think it is a little pricey for only getting 2 hours, but I wouldn’t choose a standard tour over this. Fascinating information and a very entertaining tour guide!

Great guided tour! The guide gave us a lot of information and anecdotes that we would never have known about, our guide even took an extra 45min for the visit to be complete! A moment rich in discovery, and really pleasant!

It makes perfect sense to make this visit with a guide who explains everything we are seeing. Fantastic experience. Excellent guide in Spanish, dedicated and concerned person, with a lot of knowledge.

Heart of Vienna and royal Austria. Wonderful and must see. Ute was a great guide, and she quickly adapted to our family, and our 5yo daughter, making this tour so memorable for her. Thank you Ute

A very interesting, entertaining tour with Ute. We recommend.
