A great walking tour - We had a really excellent tour with Christopher - he is extremely knowledgeable, well informed, enthusiastic and very funny ! He clearly loves Vienna and wants to his guests to love it too. He was happy to spend more time showing us the sights and we were happy for him to do so. I thoroughly recommend spending a few hours in his company. Thanks Christopher.

Free Walking Tour of Vienna - I highly recommend Prime Tours. My husband, daughter and I did this tour on Friday evening at 6pm. Our guide, Anita, was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. She explained historical and cultural references very clearly. The tour was conducted at a very good pace. I would highly recommend this tour.

Awesome walking tour of Vienna! - Had the evening walking tour with Sven and it was awesome! He had a lot of information and you really feel like you see all of Vienna in the 2 hours you’re walking. Great thing to do in the beginning of a trip to really see the city!

OK free walking tour of Vienna - We booked this free walking tour of the highlights of Vienna on-line (as recommended on the Prime Tours website). The website also stated that a maximum number of 35people would be allowed on the tour. Unfortunately, on the day we went on their tour the group consisted of over 50people (&at one stage there was 60 -I spent a few minutes counting them) Our tour guide, Elizabeth, did not seem to mind the number of people on her tour , some joined in part way through, but in my view there were too many people. As far as the tour itself was concerned, we found it interesting with lots of history and covering areas such as Albertina, the Opera House, the Hofburg, St Peter's church &St Stephens church. Although our guide was friendly enough there was not enough humour in her tour (unlike other similar tours I have been on). Overall, I would only recommend booking up on this tour if a maximum number of people could be guaranteed, but this may be difficult as it's a free tour &the guide is only paid by tips!
