This Vienna adventure, handcrafted by a native Viennese, covers and combines a multitude of topics. It is a holistic experience for your mind and senses, that will immerse you in the culture and history of Vienna's past and present, as well as the special atmosphere of this vibrant metropolis in the middle of Europe.

I'm from Vienna, Austria but have traveled to about 50 countries and experienced many different cultures. My wife (who is from Switzerland) and I met many people from abroad - and some visited us in Vienna in return. We showed them around, organized activities, and gave them a fully-fledged Vienna experience. Our guests were more than happy, so we decided to offer this Experience on AirBnB.

As a native Viennese who loves his city, I am able to present Vienna's history and culture in the context of today's life, show places and walk routes off the beaten path of tourism as well as give insights into how arts, architecture, and music shape the essence of this extraordinary city. My experience with other cultures came in quite handy and even if I hardly had known these people in the beginning, they always left as friends.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! We had a great time walking around and seeing so much of Vienna. Wolfgang gave us a fantastic overview of the highlights and history of Vienna. He kept a great pace and gave us a lot of information throughout the tour. He was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. He offers many other opportunities for tours and entertainment on his website and had we known prior to booking our other excursions, we would have definitely utilized it. He can customize your experiences at an affordable price. If we come back to Vienna we will definitely contact Wolfgang!

Wolfgang is passionate about the history of his city, from the Middle Ages to the present day. Visiting places outside of the classic tourist tour is genial. We highly recommend the guided tour with Wolfgang

The name of this tour is true, this is the complete Vienna Tour! It is perfect to start a visit to Vienna, as it give you an idea of every points of interest so you can then plan your next visits to specific sites to what interest you the most. It is a good 6-7 hours of walking, very few stops. No need to be an athlete but you have to be reasonably in shape and wear good shoes. We have done about 19,000 steps, and in addition, you go site to site hoping on the subway (plan another 8 Euros for your ticket). There is not really stop for lunch, you can either grab something on the way or pack some snacks and something to drink. Wolfgang is very passionate about his city, and will answer with pleasure to your questions, and will make you discover places or provide you information about known places that you will not get otherwise.

My husband and I had a great day on Wolfgang’s tour! He was very helpful in providing detailed directions from our AirBnB to the tour starting point as I was a bit nervous about navigating a new city initially. The tour was very informative with just the right amount of time being spent at each location to get an overview, and he provided recommendations on where to visit / eat dinner based on our preferences. He is very knowledgeable about Vienna’s history and you can tell he truly loves the city!

This was an excellent introduction to a vibrant and exciting city. Wolfgang was sensitive to our fatigue from flight delays and so much fun to talk to! We walked through so many neighborhoods of Vienna and got to see the outlying beauty as well as the most historic districts. His knowledge of history and the city is excellent. I can’t recommend this tour highly enough!
