Can you recommend a Walking Tour of Vienna?

Fellow Fodor travelers; my partner and I are visiting Vienna for 3 days starting June 13. We would like a guided general walking tour of the city. Can you make a recommendation?

Look at the following sites for good information
www.info.wien.at

click on sightseeing - then to discovery tours-

much choice - choose what you like.
Vienna has a system to certify guides- they must pass a strong test- look for the red and white medallion that shows this to be a certified guide

also good
www.viennacityguide.at

www.sightseeing -vienna.at

good audio guides available- this is a great way to see things- you can go at your own pace- good information on the guide.

Molker, thank you for the info. I saw the audio guide internet site and it looked fairly complete. Would you suggest going with that service or an actual guide?

The audio guide is liked by many tourists.
personally, I would prefer the live guide.
You are much more flexible in your walking- can stop to look another direction or street that may interest you-can ask questions and readily get answers - a good guide can customize your tour a little to your interests.
However-
Audio guide probably cheaper.

An alternative is to get the book ViennaWalks by J. Sydney Jones, although I must admit that I was much less impressed by this volume than by the one on Berlin in the same series.
