My husband and I have gone on many Jewish walking tours in both Europe and Israel. I have to say Lisa Marie was one of the most interesting and informative guides we ever had. It was 95 degrees and we were outside , but she was riveting! I have already recommended her to some friends that are planning on visiting Vienna next spring!

I loved the experience. It gives a lot of interesting things to do and explore.

Wonderful start to our trip in Vienna, I wish this experience was everywhere!

What an excellent experience! Infotainment at its finest.
