About Us

We are a team with a passion for history and for Vienna. We’ve always been intrigued by the stories of well known personalities in history. For us it was never enough to know merely about them. We wanted to know their true story, not just their success or failure but the process they went through to get there.

We have also been curious about forgotten people who disappeared from memory despite having world-changing achievements. We believe that many of them can serve as true role models. All we need to do is walk in their footsteps!

Your guide on this exciting tour is Michael Schefts. Apart from being a licensed tour guide, Michael is a Vienna based actor, director and writer. His love for storytelling as well as his historical knowledge make him the perfect person to lead you through the beautiful Viennese streets.
