“Excellent Jewish Walking Tour!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

Small-group Walking Tour of Jewish Vienna including Holocaust Memorial

Excellent, high-energy, bilingual tour with tour guide Barbara Timmermann! The tour was very smooth even though it was completely bilingual in English and German. Barbara was extremely knowledgable even on subtle details of Jewish practice. She also has a very strong voice that really projected well. Highly recommend this 1-1/2 hour tour which involves walking very short distances.

“excellent and informative tour”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We went on their Jewish walking tour on a Monday afternoon in early July 2014 and thought it was excellent. The guide, Barbara, handled the group of 20+ very well and ensured that the tour was well run. She really is an expert on her subject and managed to convey the information in an intelligent and sensitive manner. Very highly recommended.

“Discover Austria's rich art history!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

We were fortunate enough to have a tour with Dr. Brigitte Timmermann that best suited her specialization in history. Her insight to the works of art housed in the Belvedere museum and the Kunsthistorisches Museum was simply amazing. Even though audio guides are available for these places I seriously suggest arranging a tour with the good doctor because having her two cents and her academic background while viewing all the works of art and architecture gives you more insight than just the regular mundane background information. Walking through the exhibitions and buildings with her was a very entertaining learning experience.

She also specializes in a tour about a German film, however I’ll admit we were not familiar with the film she provides the tour for. I am familiar though with the movie, Before Sunrise, which was also shot in Vienna and she is also very much knowledgeable about the places where the movie was shot. I highly recommend booking a tour with the good doctor if you intend to look through the rich and colorful art history of Vienna.
