I had asked Susanne if we could spend more time talking about Austria's involvement in the war, rather than touring. Our tour group was now just 3 adults. Her knowledge of history and the political climate, beginning prior to WWI was amazing. She provided an unflinching narrative of events leading up to the WWII. Her commentary on Austrians was not always flattering, but honest and backed up with solid research. She answered questions without hesitation. Perhaps the most insightful tour ever.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: A fantastic review from a fantastic guest!

Susanne was absolutely spectacular!! If you're a history buff & enjoy WW2 - this tour in Vienna is a MUST. Not only is she articulate & delightful - she makes each aspect of the 3rd Reich tour come alive. Susanne does a fantastic job of incorporating Austrian history from the late 1700's all the way through post-WW2 into the visit. This is also a great way to see Vienna - we incoroporated a few short cab rides into our visit & in <4 hours were able to see the city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jill, dear Joe, I am very happy you liked my tour. Having heard that you are a WW2 buff, I was also looking forward to our tour together! Myself I also had a great day with the two of you, and I am already studying details about Hitler's possible escape to Argentine, as you suggested. Could it have been true?? Best regards from Vienna, Susanne

Wonderful tour and so much information! Susanne really knows her subject and we enjoyed our time with her. Would always recommend her tours.

Susanne was a wonderful guide, fluent in English, with courage to provide a tour on a challenging subject. She clearly had thought through what information could be provided--enough but not too much, with visual aids on her digital tablet--to make the experience informative and enjoyable. At departure, she offered to be our "concierge" for the remainder of our stay in Vienna, recommending places to go and to eat and promising to respond by email to our questions. She was a pleasure to be with.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rachel, dear Jerry, thank you for your kind review. Despite the grim subject matter I did really enjoy my morning with the two of you. You were a very interested audience! I would love to further be your "concierge" for anything that concerns Vienna or the subject matter of the tour. All the best to the two of you, Susanne
If there would have been a six star rating, Susanne would have deserved it all the way ! She is this very special guide who walks the extra mile with pleasure, like: sending beforehand a whole list of links and ideas (movies, music, Youtube interviews, books, ...) so one can prepare for the tour properly/extensively; adding extra hidden gem ideas to improve even thisbr brave tour; informing if her guests returned safely home... She actively involved the youngsters in the tour. She is most recommendable !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jan, thank you for the phantastic review. It was a pleasure to meet your family and spend and instructive afternoon with all of you! Its true I really have a passion for learning and I enjoy "teaching" some of Austria's history, even the not so nice part. I appreciate that you took the time to review my tour! All the best, Susanne
