Lisa was incredibly knowledgeable about Vienna’s history, was an captivating story teller, and introduced us to parts of Vienna we hadn’t known! We go on ghost tours every where we go and between New Orleans, Paris, Seattle, San Francisco, and Dublin this was the best! Thank you Lisa and we’ll recommend you to all of our friends!

Well, there is still something ...

The beginning was the best part when we were shown into the Minorite Church. Then everything didn't work out - it was Holy Mass - and we could no longer see objects to be seen. Overall, the guide tried hard to give us a lot of history. But then this is unfortunately not long in the memory if the perception is missing.

An exceptionally great tour with a very special guide. She managed to entertain a horde of young people with her stories for over an hour.

Despite the very high number of participants, estimated at 30, it was a great and interesting tour
