The Idea of Prime Tours
Prime Tours is a young company, founded by two Viennese students, Clemens Sengwein and Tobias Tomaschko. They have the vision to change the local tourism with their innovative ideas and passion for showing people their beloved hometown Vienna. They want to offer the tourists authentic experiences and not just information! Particularly the Kick Bike Tours are what makes it unique!
“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us”
Where did the idea come from to found Prime Tours?
We have been travelling a lot, all around the world as backpackers and we realised, that for us the common sightseeing tours are not an option, because we can visit the sights with the guides books as well. We prepared a plan to explore the secret, hidden places, which are not included in all the classical sightseeing tours, to show our guests, that beside the historical
destinations there is a lot of fun exploring Vienna.
What exactly do you offer?
I have been working with backpackers over years, since I founded my Hostel – Prime Rooms. We heard our guest´s wishes and expectations. As a backpacker you do not want to be an outsider – a tourist in the city you visit. You want to be a part of it and experience how the locals live, have fun and do party. You want to know where they do eat the famous „Käsekrainer“ or which beer do they prefer as locals. That is what we offer – to be a local for a day!
Are you guiding the tours all by yourself?
Yes we try to guide some groups as well, because we want to have contact with people with so diverse backgrounds and show them our local Vienna. Of course we also have support from various passionate tour guides as well. Our Free Walking Tour is for example only led by licensed guides, who have to pass a very hard exam to guide around the historical center. For our alternative tours and pub crawls we work together with enthusiastic locals, who want to get in touch with travellers and have a good time with them.
What is your main concept?
High quality for the best price @ unique locations.
It is very important for us to provide a high valued service for a fair reward.
Our tours are always changing because we would like to surprise our guests, but don’t be afraid, it’s gonna be one of the best adventures…
