Tom StorrsUnited States
Extremely knowledgeable guide but not much fun to be with. No opportunity for food or drink on 9-3 tour. Went to wrong hotel so he was late.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: i am very sorry for the wrong start - and even more so that my efforts to amend for my error were not sufficent... still all the best for 2019 to you !
Christian was the perfect guide one dreams about. Knowledgeable, organized, changed plans in seconds after I told him I had already visited an Area that was part of his tour, a true gentleman. He also manages perfectly with the tickets and bureaucratic details. In short, an expert multilingual and confident person. I recommend him without any doubt. And I'm an expert traveller.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks very much - i am glad to have been your host in vienna - and i feel flattered beyond means by your comment ! - just sorry that the day was over so quick !
Heidi CanarelliHenderson, NV, United States
Chris gave us a wonderful, insightful tour. We loved hearing the history of Vienna and the Hapsburgs as we toured the castle. A highlight was the impromptu stop at the University. Thank Chris for a lovely day.
Heidi CanarelliHenderson, NV, United States
Chris is an intelligent, gracious host for his city. He obviously loves Vienna and wants to share his excitement for his city with his guests. We enjoyed our tour very much and came away with a true appreciation for this lovely city and a much better understanding of its history.

Heather BlondUnited States
We had a great day walking & driving around Vienna. Christian is quite interesting and knowledgeable on all things historical. He walked us around the center of town and showed us all the highlights, plus some hidden gems, then drove us to lesser known but very interesting areas of town. We really enjoyed our day with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks and thanks and have a great evening
Charlie LesterUnited States
Chris has a passion for his city and knows its history well. He is professional and personable and speaks English fluently. The tour is highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks hope you had fun !
Brian BarkmanUnited States
What a fun day cycling all over Vienna with Chris. We expect he knows more that most history books about a city he is so obviously passionate about. If you are a deep history person you could not pick a better guide in this city. I doubt you would find a question he could not elaborate on in great detail. He did an excellent job of expediting us past long lines and kept us engaged all day long. We highly recommend his service.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you very much - it was just great to have met you !
Jill EisfelderUnited States

Rick RobertsUnited States
Christian's English and understanding of Austrian history are top notch. He was excellent in meeting our needs for a private, customized tour for one couple who were already familiar with Vienna traveling with a second couple who had never been there -- just the right balance for everyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: well thank you very very much - it was a delightful day for me as well - and i only can wish you all thr best snd that you will have a lot if fun ! thanks again - always yours - chris
Chris is extremely knowledgeable of all the places he took us, and of many more. We had a lot of questions other than the ones from the sites we were visiting, and he always had the right answer for them. Great knowledge of city driving with all the shortcuts we needed to use to make the most of our time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks a lot - fue de verdad un gran placer con vds !

Samantha MartinUnited States
Chris was a terrific guide. We had only one day in Vienna and he made sure we saw the highlights but also places that are not on the guide list yet gave us such a sense of the city. It was very special. He was knowledgeable and made the history interesting. We really enjoyed our time with him and he left us wanting to come back. I'm just sorry he got a parking ticket!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks very much - it was also for me a vety special day !

Christian accommodated all our wishes, was very informative, and answered every question. Having had an excursion tour as part of a river cruise, Christian tailored a tour that didn't duplicate except where we asked. Had a nice lunch in an out-of-the-way place in the hills.

Chris's knowledge of Vienna, past and present is very impressive and his stories add color to the standard guidebook information. In talking with Chris we learned lot about the Viennese people and their view on life.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks very much and have a good time
Stephen BluestoneUnited States
We asked Chris to give us a general introduction to Vienna for several hours at the start of our three-week stay. We wanted to get a feel for the city and familiarize ourselves with distances and transportation, etc. We wanted something beyond the tourist maps and explanations. Chris obliged and was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed his company.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks very much - it was a pleasure
Ronald FriedmanUnited States
To be honest my rating is closer to a 3 but some of my negative issues were probably at least partially my fault. I could have communicated better. Chris gave a great tour of the Schoenbrunn Palace. He arranged for a wheelchair for the 94 year old with us and he was good at getting through the crowd. We also wanted to see the "Vienna Woods" I admit I didn't research potential stops in this area but all he did was take us on a long drive to that region and back without even a photo opportunity.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: muchissimas gracias !"
Gail StoddartMarion, NY, United States
Chris was wonderfully supportive as I made plans to visit Vienna and explained that I was traveling with my 14 year old grandson. He planned a tour with our specific needs in mind and drove to each sight sharing interesting and educational information. He took me to the Spanish Riding School to get tickets for the summer show the following day which I didn't know about. I highly recommend Chris' guiding services !
Priscilla HanfordUnited States
Chris was a terrific guide for the first visit to Vienna of our multi-generation family. His knowledge of the history/culture of Vienna and familiarity with the city's many sights was excellent. He asked the right questions to determine our interests and showed us a variety of very meaningful locations. Great tips for our remaining days in the city including excellent eating spots. He was personable and professional and we would highly recommend him as a tour guide. Outstanding English fluency too!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: it was the greatest pleasure to have been your guide ! thank you very much! !!
Shellye CammeyerUnited States
Today we had a tour of all the highlights of Vienna, mostly walking. Chris is very knowledgeable of Austria history and shares this in an enjoyable way. I will recommend him with 5 stars to anyone who will be traveling in Vienna. We booked Chris for a 2nd day. On this day we toured the Belvedere. His knowledge of Viennese art is incredible. We also enjoyed a ride to the wine country where we had lunch with local Austrian food. Thank you Chris for making our trip to Vienna very memorable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: it was a great pleasure to be with you and to show you my vienna. have fun in prague
Shellye CammeyerUnited States

William S.United States
Our tour was in Vienna, Austria on May 21, 2015. Christian was an excellent guide. He was cooperative, knowledgeable and spoke English fluently. Highly recommend Christian as a guide. Tour was worth every Euro or in USD every penny
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks very very much !!!
Christian was very knoledgeable and committed to providing a good service. We would have prefered a slighly shorter trip and more flexibility on the sites (could have easily skipped some of the sites on the ring). Really enjoyed the ride through Vienna, great way to see the city.
Christian is a friendly tour guide with fluent English who has a vast knowledge of Viennese history and politics. He was able to change the tour to suit our requirements; initially given the severely cold weather and also so that we could visit Schoebrunn Palace. He also was helpful in pointing out some sights for us to visit on our own and was happy to answer our general questions about Austria and life in Austria. We very much enjoyed our tour with Christian and would highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks a billion for that flattering comment - it makes my year !!!

Joseph ConradFairfax, VIRGINIA, United States
Christian contributed immeasurably to our enjoyment of Vienna. His knowledge of the history and culture of Vienna and the Hapsburg Empire is extraordinary. Equally important is his ability to adjust his tour and delivery to the background and interests of his clients. He seamlessly adjusted our, itinerary, for example, to include the morning exercise routine of the Spanish Riding School into our tour. We thoroughly enjoyed the day in Vienna. It stands as a highlight in our trip.

All three in our party thoroughly enjoyed Chris' tour of Vienna. He listened carefully to what we already knew of the city and our tour previously in the week and then adapted our afternoon to provide a rich experience of the culture, history, politics as well as urban myths and legends in the Inner City. Chris also made several recommendations for us to enjoy our time before and after the tour by recommending local hot spots and where to find certain food and experiences. It was great!

James RydzelUnited States
We took a tour with Christian in Vienna in early August. He was extraordinary. We told him we had taken some commercial tours of the tourist area and asked him for something to supplement. He came through wonderfully, taking us to the Lippizaners summer home and the surrounding castle/art works. It was perfect and he did a wonderful job. James A. Rydzel
Antonella AlbanoUnited States
Christian is a fabulous guide and host to beautiful and elegant Vienna. We enjoyed the history and art conversations we had with him while walking around the city. He is extremely knowledgeable, attentive and takes pride in sharing all the city has to offer. He also asked if we had any special wish or were curious about anything in particular at the beginning of our tour, which we thought was very thoughtful. His English is absolutely excellent. We highly recommend him as your personal guide.

Christian was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the area and also gifted in bringing it to life. We were only in Vienna on an overnight stay. He picked us up from our hotel at the airport and took us into the city. His English was pretty easy to understand and he didn't seem put off the few times I asked him to repeat himself. I just wish the weather had been a little warmer so we could have walked around a little more. Great tour!

Sammy M.Hong Kong
Christian is very knowledgeable and flexible. Gave us a great orientation of Vienna and advised us on how to use the U tube and buses with the Vienna card. We were totally comfortable getting to the places he showed us in the days after. Most of all, he tipped us to the once a year concert at the Summer Place and we got to attend this concert by the Vienna Philharmonic for free. Price for the 4 hrs was on the high side, but I guess that's just how Vienna is.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks for that review - it was great to have had you as guest 1

Steven PizzutoUnited States
The guide was very knowledgeable, we walked and used the metro. I know you need to walk through certain areas, but I still would have paid more to have some private transportation included.
We had a very nice experience with Christian. He was knowledgeable about a great deal of Austrian history, and made our tour very enjoyable. He also assisted us with transfers, which was extremely helpful. I would recommend Christian as an excellent tour guide. Thanks! N. Poeschl
