Ursula is very knowledgeable about Vienna and Austrian history. She is also very flexible and adaptive. She gave us a nice overview of Vienna, its wonderful palaces, and other important landmarks. She even offered us a private tour of the State Opera house as an addition to our tour.

Tour: Viennas Historical City Center and The Christmas Market in Schoenbrunn (3 hours), Vienna, Austria
Date: Dec 6/19

Thanks to a flight cancellation, we missed our originally booked time for our tour but, thankfully and very graciously, Ursula quickly rescheduled us for the following day and I am delighted that she did! She is a font of Viennese knowledge. She was also extremely kind and generous to my elderly mother who was with me on holiday going at a speed that was easier for her. I cannot recommend Ursula highly enough - another star in the Tours By Locals crown!

We had many guides on our trip, and Ursula was the family favorite. She was incredibly knowledgeable and provided us with a wonderful introduction to Vienna! Ursula was a pleasure to be around and was very good with our teenagers. We covered so much in a half day that set a wonderful backdrop for the rest of our stay. I highly recommend Ursula!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jennifer! Thank you so much for this great review! I am really happy that you and your family have enjoyed the tour in Vienna! I send my warmest greetings to all of you!

Ursula is fantastic! She's knowledgeable and very reliable. We had lovely time with her. Ursula tailormade the tour according to our wishes. With a very short period of three hours in hand, she did her best to give us a walking tour of the city. And though the opera house was not part of the tour, she was kind and gracious enough to show us around, which was the highlight of our visit to Vienna. Thank you so much Ursula for your precious time with us.

Ursula was excellent. Her knowledge of the Schönbrunn Palace and Austrian history in general was impressive. Towards the end of the day we collectively decided to change the itinerary and finished up at the Kunz Museum of Fine Arts. She led us skillfully on a fast run through. Definitely recommend Ursula to anyone visiting Vienna.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gina! Thank you for the nice feedback! I am glad you have enjoyed the tour, it was also for me a pleasure to get to know you. Enjoy your trip today! Big hug for all of you! Ursula

Ursula is the best tour guide we have ever had and we have visited nearly 20 countries in Europe. We used her twice this trip (tour to Budapest, Hungary and Bratislava, Slovakia both from Vienna, Austria) and could not have asked for a more caring and knowledgeable guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ryan! Thank you so much for the great review! I am glad you have enjoyed the tours, it was also a pleasure to get to know your very nice family, your parents, your wife and your children! I hope to meet all of you again... maybe in Vegas (?) ...one day ;-) I wish to all of you a good flight back home. Greetings to all of you!

Tour: guided tour of the Austrian National Gallery at the Belvedere palaces, Vienna, Austria
Date: Oct 3/18

Ursula was a replacement for another guide with an advanced pregnancy, so you may not find the Belvedere Palace tour among her usual offerings, but she had prepared a custom 3-hour tour for our group of four persons. We spent most of that time in the Upper Palace art museum to view the paintings of Gustave Klimt and Egon Schiele, and she had many insightful comments about the artists and particular artworks. Ursula has an engaging and friendly personality, and we were glad to have her as our guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Alan for your nice review, I really appreciate it. I am glad, that you have enjoyed the tour. My best wishes to all of you!

Tour: 3 hour private guided tour of Vienna's leading art museum the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna, Austria

Ursula was a replacement for another guide with an advanced pregnancy, so you may not find the Kunsthistorisches Museum (KHM) tour among her usual offerings, but she had prepared a custom KHM tour for our group of four persons. When visiting for the first time, I like to have a highlights tour and an introduction to various parts of the museums, so I can return to areas of interest later. Ursula did a fine job in this regard, as well as having an engaging and friendly personality.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Alan for your nice review, I really appreciate it. I am glad, that you have enjoyed the tour. My best wishes to all of you
