iJourneys Vienna

As a first time visitor to Vienna (and Salzburg), I found these walking tours to be a great way to familiarize your way around the city. They're pretty thorough and easy to use and allow you the flexibility that you don't get if you're stuck in a large tour group. There are a couple of spectacular churches that are only briefly mentioned or not mentioned at all, but they are all along the route that this narrated tour takes. It was well worth the money spent.
