Dace is an awesome tour guide! She took us on a 2 1/2 hour tour of Vienna's historic area.  We went on this tour on our first day in Vienna, which gave us a good foundation to fully experience this beautiful city. Dace enthusiasticly provided a wonderful overview (with supporting details) and took the time to give us explanations to questions we asked. It is that obvious Dace loves Vienna and is very knowledgeable about it!
