We only had a long weekend to do the city and so your tour really helped us get our bearings. There's just so much to see there! I know we only scraped the surface but it worked really well for us.

This was a great tour that took you everywhere you needed to go. Particularly liked the walk through of the mosaic frescoes on the front of the Basilica. We had a great time in Venice, made all the more special by this evocative guide. Like the speaker's voice too - one of the best I've listened to.

VIENNA CITY GUIDE: For hundreds of years, Vienna's location in the middle of Europe, at the cross roads of so many trading routes, has provided its wealth but also given it a cosmopolitan history and meant that it has attracted a wide variety of artists, musicians and thinkers.
From the creation of the croissant to the shocking artistic movement called the Seccession, Vienna might be the epitome of civilisation and elegant gentility - but still has the capacity to surprise.
