Absolutely outstanding tour of Vienna! Hernando Montoya spent five hours with us - 3 hours touring by car and 2 hours by foot walking through the city center. It was a perfect day and we benefited from Hernando’s deep knowledge. He did a great job of customizing the tour to our needs and interests. Highly recommended!
