Great tour, very informative and Mirko made it extremely entertaining! He was very knowledgeable about Vienna & its history. We never felt rushed l, he gave time for pics and the tour even went over by approximately 30 minutes. Besides the great history we got, he also gave out great ideas of things to see & places to eat for all types, and the best part was, he also gave out some tasty Viennese treats!!
