Un gran tour. Da igual si acabas de llegar a Viena o si llevas varios dias. Luis te enseña un contexto histórico que te ayuda a comprender lo que has visto y lo que verás. Sus explicaciones son completas a la par que sencillas de entender y entretenidas. Tiene un arte para hacer que te atrapé con su relato. Cuando reservé el tour me pareció que resumir 2000 años de historia en solo dos horas era casi imposible...Luis lo consiguió. El grupo es de pequeño tamaño y eso hace el tour más agradable y facilita preguntar e interactuar entre todos. Si quieres conocer Viena .....o si la conoces y quieres conocerla mejor, este es el tour.

Luis Fernando es un guía excelente. Nos enseñó toda la ciudad en un día gris de lluvia en el que se esforzó por buscar lugares en los que resguardarnos durante las explicaciones. Además, se nota que le encanta la historia y conoce muchísimas anécdotas de la ciudad y sus personajes.
