Vienna Tours Private Sightseeing
See My City Like A Local
Vienna Tours Private Sightseeing Are you not a tourbus person? Do you think there is more to a city than a print guide? Welcome up my street. I have put together the eight best small group and private tours for you to screen.
Vienna Tours Private Sightseeing What I like about this tour is that it comes in neat digestible packages. During the three-hour core tour, the local tour guide will
show you the essentials, from Ringstrasse boulevard and Schonbrunn Palace to artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser's iconic blobby building in
the district of Landstrasse. This is the easy-peasy mini-van tour. If you can spare two more hours and like to walk, he will take you into
the city centre, including the Imperial Palace, the Jewish quarter and St. Stephen's Cathedral. The full-day tour (seven hours) builds upon
the five hour tour, and includes more hidden places in the city centre, and then to the wineries of Grinzing and the Wienerwald.
Vienna Tours Private Sightseeing Some travellers join local guide Gertrude's tour because they like Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis
(remember David Cronenberg's blockbuster A Dangerous Method). And some travellers are simply after sites and stories about Vienna 1900
and the 'World Of Yesterday' (Stefan Zweig).
Gertrude's tour follows Freud's footsteps when he lived and worked in the city for almost half a century.
You will visit many places with a reference to Freud, including the Sigmund Freud Museum. What I liked most about the tour were the many
stories about Freud's contemporaries, including Empress Sisi, Emperor Francis Joseph, and Gustav Klimt.
Vienna Tours Private Sightseeing You can walk a long way through the city centre in two hours. If you have a savvy and entertaining tour guide like Marieta at your side,
this single walk will have added tons of value to your city break and to your knowledge of Vienna. (She walks at a comfortable pace.)
Marieta's tour suggests key landmarks such as the Imperial Palace,
the pedestrian boulevards of Graben and Kärntner Strasse, and a view of the Museums of Fine Art and Natural History. She is ready to finetune your private tour according
to your special interests, though.
Private tour guide Yvonne brings Vienna to life by adding contemporary information and knowledge about the Viennese way of life to her art and history tours.
She is one of the most popular local guides, specialising in city and courtyards walks, and in escorted Vienna tours of museums and palaces.
If you venture out to the countryside while on a city break you either have to prepare your own route or accept large tour groups. Unless you join a private or small group tour, like I did when going for wine tasting to Wachau Valley. These tours can be anything, though, so don't spend your money until you know exactly what to expect, and are comfortable with it. My Wachau Valley tour review will help you do this.
