Frequently asked questions
Free tours are designed for individual travelers and small groups. If you are a bigger group of 6 or more we have a special, private offer for you. Just send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for requests and further information.
Our meeting point is in front of the Albertina building, right next to the fountain ´Albrechtsbrunnen´ (on the street level, not upstairs at the museum´s entrance!) – just look for our green umbrella! To get to Albertina by public transport use metro lines U1, U2, or U4, disembark at Karlsplatz and take the exit “Oper” (State Opera
House). Also, tram lines 1, 2, 71, and D take you to the stop “Kärntner Ring/Oper”. Our walking tour will end close to Schwedenplatz next to the Danube canal.
Our free walking tours lead through the historic centre of Vienna and focus on the inner city’s highlights, like St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the Imperial Palace (Hofburg), the Jewish Quarter, and many more. Please note: you won’t enter any sights or museums and therefore the tour does not include any entry fees. In addition to architecture and history, you will learn quite a lot about local traditions and hear some interesting gossip and legends about the city!
We are 100% weather-resistant. Our tours operate 365 days per year, seven days a week. Just make sure to bring proper equipment such as raincoats, umbrellas, sunscreen, hats or caps, water bottles, and wear appropriate shoes.
Due to the nature of walking tours, we aim to keep tour groups small and below 35 guests. There are rare exceptions during the high season, but 40 guests is our absolute maximum tour group size.
Our free walking tours are available in English and German. Occasionally, we also offer free walking tours in Spanish. Please check available dates on our website.
As we try to start our tours on time, we ask our guests to arrive at the meeting point 15 minutes before starting time. If you have a reservation, it will expire 5 minutes before starting time. To preserve tour quality for our other guests, it is not possible to join halfway through a tour or catch up with the group somewhere along the route.
Our guides don’t receive any set income from the company, they work on a tips-only basis. You get to decide how much his or her tour was worth to you. It’s recommended to bring small notes with you on the tour, so you can adapt the amount you want to tip based on the tour quality and your level of satisfaction.
Children under 16 accompanied by a parent are very welcome on our free walking tours. There is no need to book for them in advance.
Yes, Good Vienna also offers private tours. If you are a bigger group or interested in a
tour in another language or focused on a special topic, feel free to send an e-mail to email@example.com for requests and further information.
Don´t worry! When you have a sudden need during the tour, there are several restrooms on the way. Just let your guide know and they will look for an appropriate stop. Most guides also offer a little tour break in a restaurant, where you can find food, drinks, restrooms, and free Wi-Fi.
We think that a free walking tour is the best way to be introduced to a city – and everybody should have the opportunity to join it regardless of their budget. However, a 2.5 hour tour can provide general information. It’s impossible to squeeze in all the interesting things to see in Vienna into such a small space of time. That’s why we offer other tours that give a deeper insight into specific topics. As we have to contract – and pay – specialized guides for these tours in advance, we also have to ask our guests to pay an attendance fee in advance. Tourism is one of the biggest
businesses in the world, and we want to be part of it – but as a fair player. That’s why our prices for paid tours are very reasonable and we promise that you will receive only the best quality with us!
There is a minimum of 10 participants for our free walking tours. If fewer than 10
people show up, the tour will unfortunately be canceled.
