This was a great day trip with Maxine Ryder she had great knowledge and knew how to convey it in an interesting way. Meeting at the train station and the two hour trip flashed by with fascinating stories about what we would see in Salzburg. We were given an extra hour on hour trip which made it even better.

Don't miss the opportunity to do Salzburg for a day if your in Munich. We had a very helpful tour guide, Luthia, who was organized and answered questions but didn't drag out the touring too long. It was actually perfect for my family since we enjoy doing things at our own pace. Luthia gave the group 3 hours to go explore the city, even encouraging us to try to get lost... that it was impossible... but to get the most out of it. She was right, the city is small and manageable enough to navigate with or without the maps she provided us. We enjoyed it so much that we plan to book a stay in Salzburg next time we're in Europe. A must if you've got a day to venture out of Munich in with a highly energetic, fun, organized guide like Luthia.

Tour worked very well, meeting at station in Munich, train to Salzburg all in good time and not rushed. Our guide Lucia was excellent, she had a wealth of experience and gave us Top Tips on what to do in the 3 hours freetime we had. It did go very quickly so her advice to keep moving and where to go was very welcome. she also knew all her Sound of Music and Mozart sights and information which was brilliant. For a day trip it was excellent and I would thoroughly recommend it if you only have the one day.
