Elena was absolutely outstanding! We couldn't have had a better introduction to Vienna! She arrived at our hotel early, contacted the driver to pull up and we were on our way! We stopped many times to get out with Elena and explore by foot, while the driver waited for us. We could have left items in the car nice and secure if need be. Elena is super friendly and sweet. Her English is excellent and her knowledge of Vienna and its history outstanding. We couldn't have been happier!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So happy to read your feedback and even more happy, that you liked my performance this much. Many thanks for your kind words and for taking your time to write them. All the best Elena

Great knowledge of European History. Every stop had a purpose that fell into place like pieces of puzzle at end of tour. Excellent restaurant recommendations. Will definitely recommend.

Elena is a fun and informative tour guide with a singular presentation style. She possesses a wealth of local knowledge about Vienna. She's a gifted and animated storyteller.

Richard MorganNew Farm, QLD, Australia
My wife and I had a tour with Elena in Vienna in August. She is very engaging and well presented. Her knowledge of the history of Vienna is very extensive. The tour structure and pace was ideal for us, we had a combination of a walking tour in the morning and driver in the afternoon which enabled us to get a great appreciation of Vienna in a limited time. Elena is a lovely person and a joy to be with.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It's so nice to read such words from customers, who are so interested and enthusiastic like you. It was a pleasure for me too. Thank you for taking the time for your kind review and special thanks for your private comment, the frosting of the cake, so to say. All the best, Elena :-) (Sorry for belated answer, but I was sooo busy)
Andrew James FeraiosEmeryville, CA, United States
Elena exceeded my expectations. I had reviewed the private tour guides in Vienna long before my trip and picked Elena as fitting my interests. Elena was very well prepared for a full day tour with a very clear itinerary. However, as we walked through the streets of Vienna, she altered the itinerary to match what she thought I might want to see. I valued her ability to think on her feet and change it based upon the conversation we were having. I highly recommend Elena as a tour guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andrew, thank you very much for all the kind words about me, I appreciate them greatly! It was also a wonderful experience for me to explore Vienna together with you, finding such unexpected treasures of your family’s roots! An event I will never forget!
Deborah HorvathUnited States
Elena was informative, friendly and very enthusiastic about her beloved city of Vienna. Due to a Scheduling conflict in our part she was extremely accommodating in rearranging her schedule to our. Would highly recommend!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Deborah, for taking time to put down your kind words. I'm happy, that you had a good time. All the best Elena
It is incredible all we were able to do with Elena. Her knowledge and love of Viena and Austria is trully amazing. She had everything perfectly planned to make the most out of our visit without ever making any of us feel rushed or preasured. My kids loved her and literally inmersed themselves in art, history, arquitechture etc. This was very rewarding.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I’m very honored by your kind words, Maximo! Thank you very much! I will never forget the expression in the eyes of your children thanking me for the excursion in the end! You have a very beautiful family, Maximo! Have a great journey! All the best to you!

Dennis MorkunasUnited States
Elena was great. We were a family of ten with a 6 and 2 year old. We took two tours with Elena - the city tour and then the Palace tour the next day. Elena is a treasure trove of facts and she imparted them to us in a way that wasn't dry or tedious. She made our time together fun and interesting. She was very patient with the kids who weren't always as enthused about historical facts as the rest of us. She also arranged a private strudel making session for us which was very much appreciated.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dennis, so much. I also have a feeling, that we spent a really good time together. I'm so glad, that you all enjoyed it. Extra thanks for your private comment. I really appreciate it. Give kids an extra hug from me. All the best Elena p.s.: Good luck to the whole Morkunas family for their future efforts in private Strudel-Making, now that you all are well trained :-)
Bambang LiemUnited States
My wife and I enjoyed our tour of Vienna old town and Schoenbrunn Palace very much with Elena. Elena is very knowledgeable of the history of the Emperors of Austria and we were very much more educated after the tour. She punctuated her history of Austria with modern parallels which was very helpful. I will recommend Elena to anybody interested in this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for taking your time to write down such a kind review. It means a lot to me. All the best, Elena

Elna was a fantastic guide with excellent English. She was very flexible when our group hit the proverbial walking tour wall. Informative insights, a wonderful dry sense of humor and a host of stops at hidden gems we would never have found on own highlight this tour.

Simon NabarroUnited Kingdom
Elena was very patient as I had to delay the start due to my daughter being ill. The rain throughout did not in any way detract from the tour. Elena was extremely informative and the tour was structured and followed a logical route. It was extremely enjoyable from start to finish.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Simon, for your kind words and for the interest you showed during our excursion, despite all the happenings! Parents do understand, that the main thing in the world are their children. So, it was self-evident to wait for results first. I hope very much, that your daughter is well now and has already forgotten about that. All the best Elena p.s.: Next time we'll take them with us :-)
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of central Vienna with Elena. Her engaging, enthusiastic commentary and thoughtful planning met our needs perfectly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Pat! Dear Friends! It really was my pleasure to show you my beloved city. It was such a good atmosphere with you all, that even the sun decided to enlight our tour, after heavy rain the day before :-) All the best Elena

Jackie IkedaUnited States
Elena is extremely knowledgeable, organized, entertaining and personable. My adult daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed her stories and 'secrets' about Vienna and Austria. Her tour is well thought out and we enjoyed every aspect of her tour. I was concerned about taking a 6 hour tour, but this was unfounded. The time flew by quickly. Elena is professional and personable, a great combination.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jackie, please excuse my delayed response, but I was abroad and had almost no access to internet. To receive such a review from sophisticated people like you fills my heart with pride and joy. Thank you so much for choosing me and sharing this day with me and taking the time to write this wonderful recension. Belated Happy New Year! May all your wishes come true. All the best, Elena
David RauscherUnited States
We spent a very enjoyable two-hour tour with Elena at the beginning of our stay in Vienna. She shared with us a wealth of historical and cultural information and anecdotes, geared our tour to our interests and suggested must-see sites and places to eat. What a great introduction to the beautiful city of Vienna !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David! Thank you for your nice review and your kind words. The saying is, that the first impression is the most important one and therefore will stay. I am very happy I could introduce Vienna to you in such a way. All the best! Elena
Sunny PillowDallas, TEXAS, United States
We got a very thorough and enjoyable tour of Vienna wiith Elena. We walked a lot around district 1, historical area, in the morning. Then drove out to Schönbrunn Castle which was spectacular. We didn't get a chance to eat lunch so be sure to eat a lot of protein for breakfast. Elena was also very patient with my husband's need to photograph everything.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your review Sunny. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Hope you're doing fine. All the best Elena
Mary RungeUnited States
Elena was very communicative in seeing that we would find her easily. She and her driver were very punctual and worked well together. She did ask us what we had already seen and tailored the few hours we had together in an efficient manner. We were impressed with Elena's knowledge of the area and its history. She also punctuated the stories with flashes of humor. We would highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your nice review. It is of importance to me that you liked it, got what you expected and all in all had a good time. Sorry for a little belated answer, but I took a few days off after some intense days in high season. Hope you all doing well. All the best! Yours, Elena
