Our guide he is really good. He has done well to translate it in English to us. There's mainly German speaking tourists from our group and 5 of us in English but he has managed to explained everything in detailed. Really enjoyed the walk and having more insight to the alleys and old residential areas. It was 2 hrs well spent. I do recommend this tour if u have extra time in Vienna.

You see things you would never experience as normal tourist. I'm sure all guides are excellent, but ask for Mr Hofer! His own enthusiasm and profound knowledge will overwhelm you!

Lukas the guide was very knowledgeable and took the effort to explain to me everything in English, fluently, so that I didn't feel left out even though the rest of the participants were German speaking.
