Katharina was an awesome guide, as someone who has lived in Vienna all her life, she was very knowledgeable and fun to be with. We particularly enjoyed the stop at the coffee house and learning about coffee house culture and traditional desserts, something that is hard to do in large group tours or on your own. We highly recommend her for an engaging tour of romantic Vienna.
