What our satisfied clients had to say:

Susanne "The Vienna New Year's Eve Ball is truly a wonderful evening of music and dancing."
"We consider the New Year's Eve Ball a fitting way to enjoy Vienna during the Holidays."
"...an evening that was so grand that we had to go back and do it again.....and would still do it again."
(Joe Vulich and Tod Mauerman, who have come twice to Vienna for the ball - 2018)

Susanne "The four of us danced and danced and had such a good time . . . at 2:30AM I started gathering them together and said "If we do not go back to the hotel and to bed now we shall never make the New Years Day Brunch". (Roberta S. January 1,2016)

Susannne..Connie and I would like to thank you for the wonderful trip. The Sylvester ball, performances and venues were perfect. We both gained 5 pounds on the great food. We especially would like you to extend our appreciation to two special guides, Irene and Leopold. Irene braved the cold and blowing snow to provide us with a walking tour of downtown. She is so knowledgable of her city and so friendly. We were so happy with the Vienna Woods tour that Leopold showed us.
(B. Winkel-2014/15)
