Well organized and very informative. The tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and made everyone in the group feel comfortable. The sites they pointed out in the city were great, we saw the most important famous sites as well as some little known gems. Do this tour. You will enjoy it. Just the right amount of time spent to tour Salzburg on our own as well.

It was amazing. It was over 70 degrees in November, the tour guide was wonderful. It was the 50 year anniversary of the Sound of Music. I would go again and again..

First of all, the booking choice and process of 4 consecutive day-trips via Viator was easy and convenient. Having read the previous reviews, all the guides seemed to have a very good knowledge of the history and professional in conducting the tour, so was ours. Yolanda, The Sound of Music, had definitely a great knowledge of the city and its secrets, and also the best places to visit. A great Sunday day-trip to spend in such a splendid small enchanting city.

This was a great tour! I recommend it to anyone interested! : it's a great beginners trip to get info and see some of the sights. I would have loved a little more time to be able to explore but with the Christmas markets and the sightseeing it was hard! I was going mainly for the Christmas markets anyway :

The day trip to Salzburg was thoroughly delightful. Prior to our departure,Ian, our guide, provided the perfect amount of historical and cultural information, interspersed with a great sense of humor. Despite crowds he kept his flock together, always making sure we were cared for. Not only was the walking tour a good introduction to the city but we were lucky to have a perfect sunny winter day which only enhanced the beauty of Salzburg.
