Salzburg is such a small city that you can easily see it in a day. The train ride through the Bavarian countryside on the way to Salzburg was neat. Our tour guide, Yolanda, had a great knowledge of the city and its secrets, and the best places to visit.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Lovely trip, good introductory to the city of Salzburg, and definitely creating the urge to revisit back this city in the future.

Susan was our tour guide for that day, and she was great! informative, entertaining, and genuinely cares for the tour. We asked points of interest that's probably out of the trip coverage, and she told us what's worth doing and a lot more. We had some hick-ups returning to Munich that day due to refugee problems, but Susan reassured the group, and guided us back smoothly.

Overall, I would recommend this trip to anyone who's interested to take part in the tour, if you are curious about Salzburg, or if you simply love Sound of Music/Mozarts.
