After doing some research, we really wanted to visit some more unusual sights in Vienna including the Hundertwasser's apartments and museum, and the Kugel Mugel at the Prater. Despite not offering such a tour, Susanne was able to customize a superb tour for us, providing us with lots of details, insights and background information. If she has not already added this to her repetoire she should, for those looking for something a bit off the beaten track.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Wendy, the biking season has started and I am in the Prater Park quite a bit. Every time I pass by the big ball of Kuglmugl, I have to smile and think of you and Oliver!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for reviewing!

For my wife's 70th birthday a little bit special, I decided that the bespoke guide option was going to be the best way, and I think my decision will go down as one of the finest I have ever made.!!! Two half days and a full day in the company of Susanne Waldeck was an absolute delight. It was impossible not to be impressed with her warmth, knowledge & professionalism! She really was capable of making Vienna "come alive". My wife's birthday trip an event that will surely stay in our memories forever.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Laurence, its for guests like you and Janice that I do not feel like my job is work at all! Thank you very much for your nice reviews and for the wonderful three days we spent together. Kindest regards, Susanne

Susanne was so knowledgeable and easy going. We had a wonderful day exploring old Vienna architecture and art. She even helped me plan the rest of my stay.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rebecca, I am happy you liked the tour. I was easy going, because you were totally natural and easy going. What a fun tour we had not only discussing Gustav's Klimts art, but also his possible love affairs (-: Have a great time in Vienna! Susanne

Susanne was a wonderful person to spend the morning with. Rich in knowledge, with a wonderful ability to make history and art come alive - she was friendly, flexible and good at gently keeping our group on task and attentive! She arranged our lunch spot as well as gave detailed suggestions for other solo adventures. We highly recommend this tour and most especially, Susanne! Danke!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sarah, this is a fantastic review from very fantastic guests! I wish your entire family a great summer, and for Kate a successful term in Florence. Warmest regards, Susanne
Gloria StricklinUnited States
Her knowledge of the subject matters was excellent and the diversity of the tour (museum, market, highlights along the way) was appreciated. She provided us with follow up material to read or watch on the subject matters we were interested in and we really appreciate her attention to details and our wishes. Of yes, she is very personable and considerate as we ranged in ages from 58 to 80. Highly recommend her!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gloria, thank you for your kind review. You were all interested in art and art history, so we had a lovely day at the Belvedere together. And wasn't Klimt something? With all his love affairs? I am happy you all enjoyed the tour and you could all follow it. Pls. say hello to everyone from me. Best regards from Vienna, Susanne
Cheryl A.United States
Susanne is a knowledgeable guide, well versed in history and art. She individualized our tour based on my preferences. I was able to savor Klimt masterpieces in a variety of settings. And I never felt rushed like with some guides. Yet we were able to cover a lot of ground in a short time. On my own, I would have needed several days to navigate the museums...and I would have missed the interesting commentary.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cheryl, thank you for kind review. I am so pleased you liked our morning in the Belvedere, we both had a great time with Klimt as a painter and as a ladies whisperer... Warm regards from Vienna, Susanne

Susanne provided us with an excellent experience in a short period of time. She had planned our time carefully and thoughtfully and was flexible. She had researched the Klimt paintings and provided for a most informative and enjoyable time. She is talented in photography and assisted us with some beautiful pictures to take home. I highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ann, it was such a fun day, you, Mary-Jane and myself had in the Belvedere! I also did enjoy our culinary exchange on Guglhupfs, Sacher cakes and more. Thank you for taking the time of rating me and thank you for commenting on my photographic skills, which have grown over the years with the help of a few really good photography classes. All the best on the East Coast and on the West Coast! Pls. send me a report on the Guglhupf situation. Susanne
