Loved my afternoon with Elisabeth, she totally understood what I wanted to see. Extremely accommodating and flexible to tailor a very fulfilling 3hrs tour in Vienna visiting the Belvedere, saw the Kiss, back to town for the Cathedral, small back streets and a lovely overall excursion and immersion into Viennese art and culture.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ariane! Thank you very much for your feedback! It was a pleasure for me. Thank you again for being my guest! Whishing you all the best. Kind regards from Austria, Elisabeth

Elisabeth was extremely knowledgeable about the history and timelines affecting the city of Vienna. We toured many areas that would have been difficult to see in a two night stay with her van hire and driver. Phillip was a conscientious driver and we felt safe every step of the way. We particularly liked the architectural knowledge. Thanks for the restaurant and shopping suggestions, Wes really loved our tour.

Date: Sep 6/19

Elisabeth led us (a party of 4) on a 3 hour walking tour entitled Romantic Old Vienna & Kaffeehauses ... she was both personable and professional and her passion for the city and its history/culture was evident! Once you've done a classic "city highlights" tour, taking this tour with Elisabeth provides another layer of understanding to Vienna -- especially the tradition of kauffeehauses in Viennese culture. Highly recommended! Elisabeth was a delight to be with! John, Cindy & friends

Elisabeth is very knowledgeable about the history of Austria, in this case Vienna. She does not only know about the historical facts of the city , but the human background and the historical context to important events. She is able to describe the setting and emotions of the past events which really bring them to life again. My son and I enjoyed her tour very much. It was a great introduction to the city.

We had such a fun time with Elisabeth! She was so pleasant and knowledgeable- we felt we had a great experience and got to see some of everything- even the rose garden which we may not have found on our own... thank you! ❤️

Elisabeth was a fantastic tour guide and everyone in my group was engaged with history and facts about Vienna. She has a deep understanding of culture and history and was able to answer all of our questions. During the tour, we saw places in Vienna that we would never have known to access on our own. The date of our tour coincided with a heat wave and Elisabeth was very considerate about keeping our group in the shade to stay cool as much as possible. Thank you for a very memorable day!

We had a wonderful day with Elisabeth! We learned so much and she showed us everything we were interested in seeing. She had great communication with us from the beginning when I was first inquiring about the tour. Elisabeth was punctual, friendly & gave us great advice for our visit to Vienna. Thank you for a perfect day in Vienna!

Elisabeth was terrific. Toured on a Wednesday before Easter - Easter markets were beautiful. We've been to Vienna a few times, so to see sights off the Vienna Ring. She is extremely knowledgeable about Vienna, its art history, and the history of the town and country. Met us at our hotel near the Amhof. On walk to Ubahn she pointed out Art Nouveau storefronts still in existence; we went to upper & lower Belvedere to see the great estate and especially Klimt paintings. Great tour, great guide.

TbyL has been our "go to" for getting our bearing when visiting a new city and Elisabeth continued to reinforce the high standards we've come to expect from TbyL private guides. Her 3-hour Vienna tour provided a fantastic orientation of the old town and as we were visiting during the holiday season, we even got to sample around 5 different Christmas markets too. Her excellent English and thorough knowledge of history helped bring the city to life. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to any visitor.

Tour: 4 hours - Highlight city Tour & city walk, Vienna, Austria
Date: Nov 2/18

Elizabeth was fantastic. She met our train & helped stow our bags during our 4 hour tour including a driver. She made sure we saw the main sights & an overview history, but listened carefully to our desires and modified the tour to spend more time on knowing the culture and how people lived today, with an emphasis of how WWII impacted the present day. One of our highlights was our coffee shop discussions and her taking us off the beaten path to see areas of the city most tourists do not. She was great

Tour: 6 hrs - Vienna Woods at Christmas time, Vienna, Austria
Date: Dec 22/17

While Elisabeth did her best she was hampered by some mis-information. We specifically asked to see a Christmas Market outside of Vienna and we were promised one, the one we were shown was closed as scheduled, unknown to us. Baden by Wein is a Summer town, with the Christmas market closed it is a rather dismal Winter destination. We feel half the trip was wasted. Her English speaking and comprehension made communication difficult at times. Though her intentions were good, the tour did not deliver

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your remarks as any suggestion how to improve is welcome. I am sorry that you expected more Christmas atmosphere at the Vienna Woods. Definitely this is not an alpine region like Tyrol or Salzburg that could have met your expectations better. What could be done was done. Yes, I am not a native speaker. It can be, that my English is not 100% perfect.

Elisabeth was a wonderful guide and really showed us a lot of Vienna in 3 hours. She was very knowledgeable about the history of this beautiful city and was willing to share wonderful stories about her life in Vienna as well. Highly recommend this tour if you are limited to only a day in Vienna.
