Foreword: The Corona crisis and the Covid-19 virus have brought domestic tourism to a standstill. Not only the hotel and restaurant industry suffers from this, but also sightseeing companies and Austrian tourist guides. Therefore, the business of Prime Tours has unfortunately also come to a 100% standstill since 14.3. 

Our goal is to revive the domestic tourism and to present the capital city to Austrians and neighbouring countries from a new perspective. Every booking supports independent Austria Guides and thus boosts this important economic sector.

Find out more about the crimes of Viennese city center on this exciting themed tour:

On this 2 hour walk, we will visit more than 10 different stops. Discover amazing hidden stories of famous crimes that have marked the city center. Discover the Palais Bathory, home of Elizabeth Bathory, known as Bloody Countess because she took her relaxing baths in blood. One of the stops is also the visit of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, a symbol of the city and allegedly the “standard bread loaf” of Vienna, the symbol of brutal quality assurance measures in the Middle Ages. There are many other stories that we would like to share with you, be our guest and unveil them all.

What other customers have written about our tours:

The Vienna you won't see in a museum!Loved the chance to tour the city in this way with a guide. We learned a lot about the city and Viennese people and daily life. Highly recommend!!
Excellent fun tour! Anita took us round lots of interesting sites, giving us fantastic historical and cultural context. The recommendations she gave for restaurants, coffeehouses and attractions were also very useful. Plus she was able to shed extra light on some obscure historical questions at the end! Well worth it.
