Great tour really informative guide. You don’t have to be a fan of the film to enjoy this tour as you learn a lot about post war Vienna from the guide which is really interesting. Our tour included a surprise at the end for the fans of the film. Highly recommended.

The "In the steps of The Third Man" walking tour around Vienna was really interesting, very well done, packed with info and quirky trivia about The Third Man film, and great stories about espionage in cold war Vienna. If you love classic movies, spies and intriguing stories ... this is a fabulous and fun tour. It's been running for 55 years and is definitely worth doing. I loved it!

Fantastic Walking Tour!

We really can't praise the Third Man Walking Tour enough! We spent about a week in Vienna, and this ended up being our favorite part of the trip. You don't need to be a Third Man fanatic to appreciate the experience (though it does help if you find time to re-watch the movie before your trip). In about two hours, our tour guide took us to several key locations from the film (though not the Prater, which is too far from the city center to be practical). She would then speak about the history of postwar Vienna and behind-the-scenes information regarding the production of the film. I felt as though I learned so much about both the movie and Vienna more generally. The walking tour really helps you to see a great film with fresh eyes!

Friendly, funny and very entertaining. This guided tour is a great way to see some stunning highlights of Vienna- even if you’re not a huge fan of the film. There is a delightful surprise at the end which I won’t spoil for you. Enjoy.

We had the best tour guide on this tour - he had a million stories. I would say that the balance of the content was half movie and half city history, which was great - because you do not have to know a lot about the movie to go on this tour. Yes, as others have noted, there seems to be a lot more german than english, separate tours would be great, but we understand the logistical issues involved in doubling the work. We do have to apologize to our amazing guide - I am very pregnant and half way through the 2 hours of walking, I just kind of gave up because it was hot and I got very tired - but this should not reflect on the quality of the tour! We felt so bad for leaving early. Highly recommend!

Not enough English

Our guide was very good and enthusiastic. However there was much more talk in German than English. I understand enough German to know that a good deal was left out for the English speakers.. I recommend making the tour truly bilingual.

This was a great way to learn not just about the iconic Third Man film but also the history of life in Vienna immediately post war. Our guide was very knowledgable and engaging. Also a great way to get some exercise!! Would definitely recommend.
