Instant Tours are NOT…
…sightseeing tours with certified tour guides in a traditional sense. Our tour guides are locals with different interests who will show you their city like they know and see it. Please do not expect a lot of history. Especially in Austria we are legally prohibited from sharing historical information and context. Apart from that your local guide is happy to answer your questions about the city. At the Vienna Classic tour we give you a small booklet with information about the city and the sights on our route.
Most tours are approximately 150 to 180 minutes. About 30 minutes are used for briefings and explanations and the rest of the time you will explore the city by foot. Please refer to the individual tours for more information.
