hat was just a fantastic tour with a very knowledgeable guide Ute. I totally recommend it to anyone who is visiting Vienna and wants to know many interesting facts which you will not find in a booklet. The car was comfortable, clean and the driver was also funny. Everything was great organised and we saw many sights of Vienna. The absolute top of the for me was visiting Belvedere Palace which is very charming and not overcrowded. In the past I used to take part in group tours but now I understand the value of private tours. As there were only 2 of us we had a great conversation with the Guide and we were talking about the things which are interesting for me and my partner. Totally recommend to anyone!

Marieta is the best tour guide for the city

My entire family loved Marieta and her walking tour of the city. Vienna is a beautiful city, and her insight was a five star performance. Every building she provided an excellent description of it’s history. Both my wife and mother in law love roses, and when she took through the park, the roses left them both speechless. She could not have planned a better tour. Marieta is gracious, professional and every family that tours Vienna should request her. We thank her one last time for the tour of a lifetime.

We decided to visit Vienna during our vacation, but we only had 1 day. So we did this tour and it was an amazing choice. Well organized, many sights, tickets for Schönbrunn Palace, private guide, driver - everything is great. From start to finish we were excited and happy to meet the guide Ute. Thanks for this day.

Booking the tour was quick and straightforward. The guide responded to our requests and questions. It was noticed that he made the tours with passion. A huge compliment and thanks to Pacic Christian for the interesting hours in Vienna

Very informative and strongly recommended for non locals visiting vienna.
