Despite the rain, our tour guide was very helpful and we genuinely had a nice time. This tour is a great way to see the city and is much different than a traditional walking tour.

Description

The emperor’s winter palace, a pink bunny, coffee houses with tuxedo-wearing waiters, and horse carriages with grumpy drivers are just a few of the things that may surprise you in the Austrian capital.

We’ll equip you with a vintage Polaroid camera to capture Vienna and it's most famous sights from your point of view! The tour begins with a crash course in Polaroid photography, so you don’t need to have any prior knowledge whatsoever about Polaroid cameras or photography in general.

Your friendly local guide will point out good photo opportunities and support you in taking the best possible shots. He or she will advise you on angles and composition, and gladly take photos of you, your family, or your friends. One pack of instant film (8 pictures) by Polaroid Originals worth €19 is included in the tour price.

Please note that the only historical information provided on this tour is what’s included in the complimentary printed booklet that you'll receive at the start of the tour.

Your guide will be happy to give you tips and recommendations for the rest of your stay.

After booking, you’ll receive a confirmation email including a PDF info sheet with directions and FAQ.

The tour was awesome.
It started out a bit rainy, but Teresa and I decided to go ahead with it. I got to see many of the city's highlights and captured some wonderful shots with my Polaroid. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend to others.
It was great tour. 'Cause Gilbert was a really helpfull guide. Bu it is a shame that they can not tell about the history.
Maybe another guide for that reason can assist them about the history.
Thank you, it is a 5 star tour.

Had a great time on our Polawalk! Thomas gave us a nice intro to using the cameras (everyone loves Polaroids!) and then took us out and about in town and through some of the Christmas markets, combining both photo tips and history and culture. We ended up with a very enjoyable history tour and some nice mementos to take home. Would definitely do this again if we return to Vienna!

A great way to explore the city and create some precious memories/ souvenirs!

Thomas our guide (and co-founder of Polawalk) gave us a fascinating introduction to Polaroid photography and took us on a casual fun walking tour of Vienna.

It was a beautiful sunny afternoon, so the lightening was great. Thomas gave us lots of helpful ideas and directions on how to make the most out of our Polaroid shots.

At the end of the tour, we were invited back to the Polawalk office whereby they offered snacks/ drinks and we got to see the results!

We took away not just a fun experience but also precious, personal souvenirs. Highly recommend this if u are ever in Vienna!

Participating in the PolaWalk was an amazing adventure, and a lot of fun. I learned how to use Polaroid camera, the Technics and also of how to create some artistic composition and angels. It's an excellent way to see the city, meet cool people and make wonderful Polaroid photos that give a feeling of modern and vintage glance of the city. It the end it is very excited to whose the photos that stayed as a nice souvenir.

Great fun
We did the tour in great weather in March, and had an excellent time. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable and we saw a lot of great places. The tour itself took us places we probably would not find as tourists, which was a big plus.
Fun and quirky way to see the city
Seeing a city through the square viewfinder of a Polaroid camera was a great way to see Vienna; our guides, Gilbert and Itta, were helpful and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
Vienna through Polaroids
I'm so glad I found this Urban polaroid tour through Like A Local. My guide was Jackie and she was the best. She showed me the Urban Vienna through a different perspective. We finished the tour an hour early so we stopped by a coffee shop for brunch. I was the only person on the tour so everything was really flexible. Highly recommend this.
