Australian owner, Adam Goss, first came to Austria in 1996 for a winter working holiday in the ski resort of Kirchberg in Tirol, before moving to Salzburg and deciding to call Austria home.
His first guiding gig was in 1997, working as a rafting and canyoning guide, before moving to Vienna in 2003 to set up the first ever guided bike tour of the Wachau Valley (Grape Grazing Winery Bike Tour).
His passion for guiding and the Wachau Valley earnt him a mention in the New York Times, was listed in the Lonely Planet as "Author's Choice" from 2005 to 2008, and was rated #1 on Trip Advisor for many years.
The creation of Discover Vienna : With over 11 years' experience in tourism, Adam decided to make it on his own and Discover Vienna was born. Due to the influx of mainstream tours in Vienna and the lack of quality tours for English speakers, Adam realized the need for small group tours that offer quality tours with a personal touch. He understands that customers' vacation time is precious and wants to offer them the most value for their money, ensuring they get the best quality tour in Vienna, and make the most out of their Viennese experience.
The team at Discover Vienna is a diverse and harmonious mix of well-travelled locals who love bringing their city to life, as well as expats from all over the world who fell in love with Vienna and now call it home.
Our daily tours are designed by our guides and customers, from their feedback over the past 11 years. Our goal is to ensure a personal touch, giving each tourist the close, interactive, 5-star experience that they deserve. Want to see a particular sight, prefer a later start or travel a certain way? Our private tours are a great way to see Vienna your way. They can be fully customized to suit your budget and special requests.
