Your walking tour will begin at our meeting point in front of the Albertina museum, next to the State Opera House (Staatsoper). From there we’ll take the subway and after a short ride we will arrive at the spectacular imperial palace.

Excellent way to get a crash course in Viennese History and a great view of the city!

Loved this informative tour and would highly recommend to anyone visiting Vienna! Our extraordinary guide, Julia, shared a wealth of historical knowledge in an intriguing and enthusiastic way. She thoroughly explained the highlights at each stop and answered all of my questions-- I learned so much! I loved having her as our guide and can't say enough positive things about the experience she cultivated for our tour group. Following the tour she took time to provide city suggestions and I found myself enjoying her advice all day as I ate the best sacher torte in Vienna and enjoyed the atmosphere of a traditional Viennese cafe. Thanks Julia!

Free walking tour - Vienna - awesome!

Carolina was our guide and we had a great tour! She had wonderful facts to share, was lovely and fun to listen to as well. Our group was a bit dull, so this was impressive. We learned a lot about the history of Vienna and she made a few custom stops based on questions and requests. Highly recommend as an intro to the city!
