If,like me,You are a Third Man fan,this two and a half hour walkiing tour of the film locations covers everything you would like to know and more.In addition,there is much about Vienna in the post-war period that is fascinating and little-known except by specialists.The guide was certainly that with an encyclopedic knowledge of the film and its time.You also get to see much of the inner stadt as a bonus.My only reservations are twofold:anyone can join the tour at its start so what was billed as English language turned out to be English and German;secondly,if you let on you are a Third Man fan you may be be tested mercilessly by the guide.I certainly failed!!Apart from that,well worth doing.

Did I imagine myself walking through the sewer in Vienna? Why no, no I did not! Did I enjoy the tour? Yes! Very much so! What a unique perspective of Vienna!

2h30 of chasing Harry Lime in Vienna... and it was so much fun. Would like to see the movie again now that I know all the tricks. We did not see the sewers but that was not a pb. And we learnt a lot as well about Vienna just after the war and the bombing and during the occupation time by US, Soviets Brits and French. Very informative.

This tour is heavily bent on the guide's knowledge of the subject and he's well practiced in delivery (German and English). A very good choice for an early evening tour although the sewers are not entered at any point. Certainly answers a few interesting points on the movie itself.

We had seen the film and thought this walking tour would be interesting on our first ever visit to Vienna and we were not disappointed. Christopher was an excellent tour guide. He asked us to be at the meeting place 10 minutes before the tour was due to begin and he was already there waiting for us. There were around 12 of us on the tour in total. The time of the tour (4pm) is well planned as it means there is more shade during hot weather. Christopher always guided us to the shaded areas to talk to us. His knowledge of the film details and the war context were excellent. Everybody learns something new and his spoken German and English were also excellent.

It was amazing to see the filming locations of almost 70 years ago mostly unchanged. We watched the film again upon our return from holiday and definitely saw things we hadn’t seen before because of the walking tour.
There was an unexpected musical piece at the end of our tour which was nice. We would highly recommend this tour.
