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 !

His knowledge of (and respect for) the city, the history, the culture, was invaluable. Going it alone was possible, but Chris made it stress-free and so much more enriching and enjoyable. He has great knowledge & makes for great company.

My husband is a history junkie and Chris was able to answer and expound on any question he asked. it definitely takes the anxiety out of trying to get around.

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.

Christian provided us with a wonderful, customized three day tour. The breadth of his knowledge combined with a love and appreciation of Viennese culture enabled him to tailor our tour to specific areas of interest including Jugenstil art and architecture. We felt unhurried and he was able to adjust the schedule "on the fly". Nothing felt scripted. Christian is intelligent and professional. And he is a natty dresser! He helped to make our visit so memorable and we highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you very very much - this really highlighted my day ! chris

Chris was fantastic and so very interesting. He showed us what we wanted to see and as we adjusted our plans he was accommodating. He was patient with the traveler restrictions, my father in law who is 88, and our lack of experience. Dad enjoyed listening to Chris and easily could hear him which is a problem at times. Chris showed us a wonderful Vienna, views, back streets, crown jewels, etc. He made this trip one we will never forget and I will always recommend him to others.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you vrry much for this comment... it was fun also for me !

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!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you very much - you made it easy for meas it is always fun to entertaina party like yours !

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

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!
