The tour guide Peter and bus driver were exceptional. Peter provided alot of interesting information about Salzburg in general and the Sound of Music locations. He provided us with suggestions of other places we could visit while in Salzburg. I would recommend this tour to others visiting Salzburg.
Barbara our tour guide was exceptional in her knowledge and in navigating the beautiful but crowded city of Venice for the two-hour walking tour. The headsets worked nicely in allowing everyone to hear the information provided. The two hours of free time before the boat tour was a good length of time for lunch and shopping. The one hour boat ride through the canals that is part of the tour is highly recommended.
The trip from Vienna to Budapest is a great way to see the city. Budapest is well worth visiting. The guide from Vienna was knowledgeable and provided an overview of the sights in Budapest. The Hungarian guide provided some information as well but was repetitive while on the hour tour on the Buda side. I would recommend a more concise overview of the Buda area and then allow for some free time for walking around. The tour continued on the Pest side and went many of the same places that we saw with the Vienesse guide. It would be nice too overall to hear more about the history, culture, people, living situations, not just pointing out the buildings and landmarks. The city is beautiful and well worth visiting. There is also something lacking when the tours are in multiple languages.
The tour was conducted in multiple languages and was perhaps too short for us based on all that there is too see and learn about in Vienna. Consequently it was focused on pointing out landmarks, high level history and could not go into great detail or provide interesting information about the current day, people, etc. We like a balance of history and learning about the culture and daily life as well. This is tough for a guide when she needs to share info quickly in multiple languages.
