A Recent Review of this tour

We had an amazing day with Katherina in Vienna. She's so knowledgeable,, so sweet, and very fun. She's a true local, born and raised in Vienna so she really knows the city. She took us to some places that we'd never find on our own, and gave us some fun facts we'd never know without her telling us. We truly enjoyed our day and are looking forward to another tour with her tomorrow! I highly recommend her for any tour she offers. You'll be in great hands.
