We had an amazing time on the tour to Salzburg. The fun started on the train ride. Our guide, Lucia, was wonderful. She began giving us history while on the train and didn't stop until we were back to Munich. She had so much to tell and was so knowledgeable. We would recommend this tour to anyone. Be sure to have coffee and cake at the Sachor Hotel. It's worth it!

Our tour guide, Jeff from Radius was brilliant. He's knowledgable and made the tour very fun. Shared with us many places to visit in Salzburg and managed to allow us free time to do our own sightseeing. This should be an overnight trip to allow more time ! Absolutely brilliant !

Fantastic day trip.

Ian was an amazing guide! He was able to tell us a lot of history but also added in a lot of humour. He catered to all the group 23 and ensured everyone had a great day.

The train trip was comfortable and went quick. Ian handed our the town maps on the train and explained where the walk would take is and also places to visit. This was very helpful.

The tour through the town was informative and allowed you to work out exactly where you wanted to go back to. Ian also pointed out the best places to eat etc which was very helpful and they all turned out to be excellent suggestions.

The town is very small so 3 hrs was enough to ensure you saw the best points.

I would recommend this day trip to anyone. Fun, informative and awesome!
