We had a morning tour with us Marina tour guide. The group was a good size, about 15 people? Marina was able to keep us all together without any delays or rush. She has a pretty strong articulated voice, which made it possible for all of us to hear her really well. Most importantly, it was so interesting. Marina was not just a very experienced and knowledgeable guide, but also fun and entertaining. She gave us useful tips what and where to eat or drink and what to visit. We used her tips and everything she recommended was perfect! Lastly, this tour was 2.5 hours, which 1/2 hour longer than some other free walking tours and we loved every second of it! Even my husband who usually gets tired and stops listening at some point, paid attention to the very end in spite of the fact that he had a kidney stone attack the night before and was still in pain. Thank you, Marina and Welcome Tour Vienna!
Informative, interesting and helpful tour We spent 2 hours with Marina exploring the Old City with a relatively small group. She oriented us to the geography and history of the city, shared many anecdotes and amusing stories and gave us tips and pointers on what to do and what to avoid (e.g. "tourist traps"). A must do as an introduction to the city.
Je conseille le walking tour avec une guide passionnante et passionnée Marina. Sinon les 2 lignes de bus sont intéressantes: Je conseille la rouge sans faire d'arrêt pour avoir un aperçu des différents monuments forts de la ville. Je conseille la bleue davantage pour effectuer des visites notamment du château et du belvedere. Sinon les bus sont couverts et propres et la traductions sont très biens faites et agréables à écouter (Non robotiques comme j'ai pu le voir à Budapest dans une autre compagnie). Petit bémol pour le prix que je trouve quelque peu exageré (Pour les 24h en tout cas)
I booked this for our first day and Marina gave us a great tour of the city. Enough history to be very interesting and not too much so that it was overwhelming. Gave us a great idea of the layout of the city and the origins of a lot of the buildings and helped us decide where we were going back to independently. Would definitely recommend.
Но больше всего я восхищена гидом нашей пешей прогулки Мариной. За 1,5 часа много интересного, необычного, небанального. Внимание не рассеивалось, слушать было очень интересно. Были моменты, касающиеся и Второй Мировой, но никакого осуждения, интерпретации, только факты, пусть и неприятные для австрийской истории. Не возникало никакого негатива. Было много важной информации о ряде музеев. Видно, что человек много знает и любит свою профессию. Я не знаю, работает ли она где-то ещё, но если так-то однозначно за экскурсией к ней.
(BB) Excellent walking tour (10.08.18) We walked through Vienna with Marina, who was an excellent tour guide; enthusiastic and knowledgable! She explained us the main historical facts and also more detailed information about the important figures and buildings of history.
My boyfriend and I spent more than 2 hours visiting the historical center of Vienna together with a group of approximately 30 people. Our guide was Marina, who could be simply defined as superb. The tour was definitely one of the best we ever had: Marina explained us a lot of interesting historical themes and she was really interesting and prepared. We absolutely recommend her tour, one of the most interesting ever!
Ich habe am Samstag, dem 30. April, an der Marina-Tour teilgenommen. Es war ein voller Erfolg. Die Tour hat alle Kästchen wie auf ihrer Website angekreuzt. Wenn andere Guides Dienste auf derselben Ebene wie Marina anbieten, dann. . . Die Gruppe ist höchstwahrscheinlich die beste für kurze Touren in Wien. Das Treffen mit Marina machte einen großen Unterschied zu meinem ersten Wien-Besuch. Ich plane, meine Dienste bei meinem nächsten Besuch mit einer Gruppe von Freunden zu nutzen. So.. Lassen Sie sich nicht durch ihre etwas mutige und auffällige Website in die Irre führen. Es sieht sicherlich so aus, als würden sie aus einem bestimmten Grund ihre eigene Trompete blasen!
Great Vienna Walking Tour We joined the Welcome Tour Vienna today and had a wonderful, informative walking tour of The centre of Vienna. Marina, our tour guide seemed very knowledgeable and provided us with interesting bits of history with some fun information thrown in. A great tour for anyone needing an overview of the main tourist sites in Vienna.
Great tour to have an idea of what Vienna was and what to expect We had a guided walking tour together with Marina, a very knowledge, talent and nice guide. She gave us a great introduction of Viennese history, habits, manners and what is worthy to visit and to do during our stay. Thanks Marina, we really enjoyed your tour!
We had a guided walking tour together with Marina, a very knowledge, talent and nice guide. She gave us a great introduction of Viennese history, habits, manners and what is worthy to visit and to do during our stay. It is a free walking tour and you give what you think on a tip base, so I felt bad when I saw one people of our group, giving just 5 Euro for 2 of them after 2 and half hours great explanations! This is not a tip, this is alms!!! Guides job need respect and consideration, expecially when they are so good and trying to give their best. Thanks Marina, we really enjoyed your tour!
So great! The hole 2,5 hours was great, our tour girl was Marine, hope got her right name, she was amazingly full of history knowledge, she even makes movies references when they have been accurate. I had a great experience.
For our first day in Vienna I booked the morning free walking tour. Our guide was Marina and she was enthusiastic and articulate with excellent English. This was the largest walking tour that I have experienced with about 60 participants. But Marina did a good job keeping us moving and fortunately the group members were all well behaved. I enjoyed the snippets of history weaved into the walk. We left with a better understanding of Vienna and its history.
Marina covered a lot of ground for our 2 1/2 hour walking tour. She really knows her history but as she was engaging, we didn’t get bored. Although the group was large, her voice carried over to everyone. We would definitely recommend Welcome Tour if you want an overview of Vienna.
I really enjoyed the tour very much. I have been in Vienna for a while and the guide, Marina, gave a great overview of the history and sights I was wondering about. My only complaint: the group was to big. It was difficult at times to hear, but again Marina did try and make sure everyone could hear. Thank you Marina for making my time in Vienna memorable. I definitely recommend this walking tour!
We had our tour with Marina. She was so kind and told us historical information, actual things and she was so funny. We learned a lot.
Marina is a wonderful guide, she is full of interesting facts, stories about Vienna, Austria. Even though the group was large, Marina is a great speaker with a powerful voice. She is always asking for feedback from the group, very interactive. The tour was entertaining. I would definitely recommend! Best walking tour this year for me.
We had a great experience with Marina. Friendly, knowledgeable, and a perfectly timed tour with just the right amount of information. Thank you!!
Welcome to Vienna walking tour with Marina Had a wonderful walking tour of Vienna with Marina yesterday. Friendly, great communication,very informative, and armed with interesting photos of old Vienna relevant to the tour sites we visited. The walk was for two and a half hours, I was initially daunted as I have walking issue, but Marina paced it so well, I had no problems and managed till the end. Excellent guide...thanks Marina!
Hatte gestern einen wundervollen Rundgang durch Wien mit Marina. Freundliche, großartige Kommunikation, sehr informativ und mit interessanten Fotos des alten Wiens ausgestattet, die für die von uns besuchten Sehenswürdigkeiten relevant sind. Der Spaziergang dauerte zweieinhalb Stunden. Ich war anfangs entmutigt, weil ich ein Problem mit dem Gehen hatte, aber Marina ging so gut auf und ab, dass ich keine Probleme hatte und bis zum Ende durchkam. Hervorragende Anleitung. . . danke Marina!
We did this tour with Marina and she was very very good. Tough two and half non stop walking tour but worth every minute.
Lovely start to Vienna trip My sister and I had no idea what lay in Vienna but this tour was a brilliant way to discover where our interests lay. Our guide, Marina, was very informative and kind - brilliant for pointing out the more traditional and less touristy areas (including food!)
