    We had a very informative and entertaining tour with Johann, who interspersed funny anecdotes about various famous people. The beautiful burial church in the center of the cemetery is particularly impressive. In any case, I would recommend this tour to get a good first overview, but the area also invites you to walk in beautiful avenues.

    Booking worked fine. uncomplicated. Only the guide sign could have been more conspicuous - didn't know who the group was. Friendly guiding lady whose enthusiasm for the topic is noticeable. You can also get marginal information. We would have liked to have received a list with more celebrities. Then we found one or the other.

    The presenter was great and obviously extremely professional. With charm, a bit of irony and a lot of knowledge, she was able to convey the central cemetery and Vienna's morbidity. The only problem was, she wore an Austria Guide badge as stated, but afterwards refused to honor my booking for three people through your website. And unfortunately she was so quick, so outraged that she was neither willing to help solve the situation nor in any other way. She didn't want to look at the booking or help clarify what the misunderstanding was. The only comment: she doesn't do that and never again and at all. That was a shame because the tour itself was a lot of fun.
