Our family of 6 spent 2 days with Karyna visiting various sites in Vienna and Wachau Valley. We found her very competent and easy going! She was thoughtful about making sure we enjoyed the experience and she was also extremely knowledgeable about the history of Austria!

We did this tour on our first day in Vienna. This trip was a birthday present for my mother ;-) Karyna was our guide and she was just fantastic. [...] Thank you very much! We would definitely recommend Karyna!

The Classics

Vienna Must-See

No exploration of Vienna would be complete without admiring the highlights.

This walking tour is a great place to start if it’s your first time around Vienna.

Join me for a colourful round-trip to all of the most important sights in town.

Sunny Day at Schönbrunn

The Classics

Architectural Époques

Are you already familiar with Vienna?

Exploring Vienna with a tight focus on just one époque allows us to dig deep and really develop a strong context for what we are seeing.

Recommended for all who really want to please their inner architecture nerd.

The Classics

Artist's Footprints

It’s impossible to separate Vienna from the artists that lived and worked here.

From Mozart to Falco, from Klimt to Schiele, from Loos to Hundertwasser, we trace the footprints of your favourite artist(s) around the city and examine their work in the light of their lives.

Sunny Day at Schönbrunn

Urban lifestyles

The Street-Art Tour

It’s a little known secret that Austria's capital is also home to a blossoming street-art scene.

And for some romantic souls, like myself, it‘s precisely in the tension between the old and the new that Vienna comes alive.

Follow along for something different...

Sunny Day at Schönbrunn


Spirits of Vienna

Note please, that this is not another, generic let’s-get-drunk-walking-tour. I trust you’d get that done by yourselves.

Instead, we will embark on finely orchestrated tour of tastes through some Vienna’s finest contemporary spirits.

Definitely won't carry you home, though.

Vienna's Cinemas

For those with a genuine interest in modern history and architecture Vienna houses a number of cinemas that have way more to offer than just their program.

These are the places where the off-screen drama was every bit as thrilling as what you may see on the screen.

Surprise Tour

The Surprise Tour is my personal favourite.

All you have to do is answer a couple of questions, — mostly about what you are NOT INTERESTED IN.

And, of course, about the occasion of your booking, — I’ll handle all the rest.

End your tour swinging

Culture meets Golf

Could you imagine a better way to end your city tour than playing a couple of holes on the lush greens of Austria's 1st Golf Club?

Maybe have PGA head coach Sigi Beretzki give you a couple of pointers on your swing and learn about Austria's intricate history of golf?

Me neither... Keep it in the short grass!

On Vienna, it’s Contrasts, it’s Stories.

History may be a science, but making it relatable is an art. My art.

For me this all about helping you form a lasting connection with one of Europe’s most thriving, vibrant, and culturally diverse capitals.

Me in 2.5 sentences

My story is the classical I-took-my-midlife-crisis-early-to-pursue-a-life-of-passion-story (that’s a thing, isn’t it?):

A bright and upbeat young woman discovers her true love for architecture and history (what else?), turns her back on all offers of being showered in money and fame to combine her greatest talent (that would be talking) with her greatest passion (exploring city cultures), and lived happily ever after (or so she hopes).

The long story

What to say about yourself.. Well, Apparently, I’m huge nerd. Otherwise I wouldn’t have thrown away my lucrative job in marketing to become a full time tourist guide. And let’s be honest, it doesn’t come much nerdier than that. I have been in love with Vienna ever since I first moved here from the Ukraine around 15 years ago. Don’t make me bore you with the details. Let’s just say I needed a change...

I also always had a great interest in the belle arts, but, unfortunately, I never showed enough talent to pursue a fulltime career as an artist. So I went into marketing instead. Connecting with people and presenting things in their best light comes easy to me. So marketing seemed like the obvious choice. Yet, short over long it left me all oddly dissatisfied.

I turned to increasingly long explorations of the city that was now my home. Explorations that soon turned into a year spent dividing my time between work and interning at the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna, then at then Museum für Angewandte Kunst. I was finally onto something...

I still remember the first time it dawned on me how much meaning was hiding in plain sight all around me. It was like being plunged in the rabbit hole of Alice in Wonderland. Learning about the history and conflicts that shaped my environment was like learning to see for me. Suddenly, the bland loud city life, the background static of our ordinary lives was filling up with life itself.

Needless to say, I was hooked.

But as much as I love the process of discovering and learning, what really gets me off is to share the discovering with other people. I want to pull them into the rabbit hole if you so want. Get them hooked on discovering as well.

Now I do that for a living.

I help people discover my favorite city and when I do a good job, I turn them into explorers in their own right.
