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.

We’ll equip you with a vintage Polaroid camera to capture Vienna 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 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.

We adapt our routes according to what’s going on at the time, but we always visit the MuseumsQuartier, Spittelberg, and Donaukanal, where we dive deep into Vienna’s street art scene.

If you’re only in Vienna for a short time and want to get a real feel for the city – this is the tour for you!

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.

Great Tour
Great tour of Vienna. Patient explanation of a Polaroid and what would make a great picture. Adjusted the tour to what type of photography I loved and what I wanted to see (I ended up having a private tour!). Guide was really knowledgeable.
Very nice tour to explore Vienna!
We had lots of fun!
Excellent tour
Our guide Jackie was knowledgeable and informative. I enjoyed seeing parts of Vienna not on the usual tourist route. The street art and graffiti were amazing. The tour is definitely worth doing.
My guide Teresa Liska
I lived in Vienna for 3 months for work and I thought 'Lets do something fun'. I found the polaroid tour on trip advisor and I really love polaroids, so 1 + 1 =2. I had an unforgettable day! My tourguide was so sweet. I was the only one who booked the tour so I was lucky enough to have a private tour. First she told me an interesting story about the Impossible brand. After that we started the fun tour. I made a few photos myself but I rather had polaroids of myself than the city so she was kind enough to be my photographer for a day. I loved it! She was kind and easy to talk to. She even laid on the ground for me to make the most beautiful picture of me hihi. We had fun. Keep up the good work Teresa. You made my day and gave me inspo to work on some projects in my own city.
Knowledgeable and Passionate
Knowledgeable and passionate about both Vienna and Polaroid. With her help we saw things in Vienna we never would have seen, and took some really fantastic pictures that felt more like art than your standard cell phone snaps. I can highly recommend this tour. Wear comfortable shoes of course, and bring water.

A unique experience!
Such a great idea to do something different from the usual walking tour! Alex was a perfect guide to explore not just the city, but Polaroid cameras too, and didn’t mind my obsession with the gorgeous autumn trees in Graz... The photos you take aren’t super quality (they are better than the old polaroids though) but what you do get is a chance to stop and think about each shot and a unique momento of your stay. 8 shots doesn’t sound like much but is plenty; I ordered the extra set and it was not really necessary. Highly recommended!

Salzburg at its best
Had a great time rediscovering Salzburg throuhg Polaroid lense, and learnt something new! thanks guys!
Fantastic tour!
I would highly recommend this tour. The instructors were very enthusiastic, friendly and patient. Even I work in Central, I didn't notice the beauty of HK until I captured it with the polaroid. Definitely a well-spent afternoon with my boyfriend!

It should be great for tourists too. You will see many HK specials in this tour, including ferries, trams, wet market, etc. And most importantly, you can capture all these with the polaroid provided by the tour.

P.S better not wear in white or light colour if you wanna take polaroid of yourself
So much fun!
A really well spent afternoon with my friends! Taking polaroid pictures while walking around Central and Sheungwan district in Hong Kong has been a fun and memorable experience. Two pretty ladies who have guided us through the tour are patient and they provide professional skills on how to take better polaroid pictures. It takes some trial and error for the first few times, but you can eventually get a hold of it. Highly recommended to try it! You can bring home the polaroids you took and they will sure be your precious memory~
Fun! Relaxing! Great Experience of first time taking photo with Polaroid!
Had a great time and took good Polaroid photos!
Instructor is very friendly and patient at teaching us how to use the Polaroid camera to take good photos. Easy to learn but need some trials to take great ones.
The route is well designed which includes different kinds of elements such as modern and old buildings, trams, ferry which are all worth to take photos of.
It was an excellent experience to me and strongly recommend to everyone no matter you are tourist or Hongkonger. You wont regret taking your first polaroid photo with it!
