This is a wonderful day trip. Scheduling was easy with daily departures from the Munich Central Train station. The tour guide was very courteous and knowledgeable of the Salzburg area and history and was able to make recommendations on food and locations where we might find very specific local novelties. On the tour, you'll see all of the key tourist attractions plus enjoy a wonderful train ride to and from Munich. Plan on lots of walking around the city. One final note, our guide Ardit, was great and a good representative for Viator. I look forward to our next visit and plan on booking another trip with them.
I really enjoyed this trip! The tour guide was very knowledgeable about Salzburg's history, culture, and main sites. The tour was well organized and informative. I just wish we had more time to explore the city on our own. After the walking tour, we were given about 3 hours of free time. Salzburg is a small city, but you need more time than that to take in all the sites. Overall, this was a great preview of Salzburg. It only made me want to go back!
This trip was great. Must see the fortress Hohensalzburg on your free time. Salzburg is a beautiful city. Jeff was a great tour guide!
This was a great way to get to Salzburg. Our tour guide Jeff was very nice and informative. It was fun to hear commentary from him on the train ride down there. He gave us a nice overview of the city and then it was great to have free time to do whatever we chose. It made it easy to get back and forth on the train for novices. He was also very helpful with other information regarding transportation, etc around Munich. I would totally recommend this trip
another simply brilliant place to visit, especially if you are into music, full of history. the train trip was very pleasant as well. an excellent days outing.
Spectacular views, delicious treats, history, architecture, friendliness of locals and much more. Ich liebe Salzburg! 3 I wish I could go back right away, because there is a lot to take in. Everything went as smoothly and wonderfully as expected. Our guide took care of us with incredible professionalism, cheerfulness and patience. She obviously enjoys people, with all our differences and backgrounds. Her knowledge of minute details in every area was extremely impressive.
I'll never forget you, Lucia P. : Thank you for everything.
Ian was our tour guide. He did such an excellent job. This is such a great city to visit.
Excellent tour. Guide personalized it although there were probably 15 others on the tour.
It was really nice, the host was extremely friendly, very knowledgeable and a pleasure to be around... Salzburg is such a lovely city, absolutely loved it... We took the cable car to the fotress, views from the above are breathtaking... amazingly beautiful!
This was an excellent tour with a caring tour guide. We would have loved to have more time in Salzburg. It went very fast.
Great tour. It is actually organised by a local tour operator. Got a 5 from viator so was a good deals.
Just book from viator and show your e-voucher at the local tours office and you are good to go.
Its a crowd of close to 28 people, and the guide was also very humorous Craig. Worth a days visit for 10 hours from Munich.
Go for it !
Outstanding tour. Iain, our guide, was quite the expert on Austrian history to really help us more fully enjoy this beautiful city. He was also very funny and entertaining.
I loved this trip! Great guide and a fantastic train ride and walking tour.
An outstanding tour. Great guide who was very knowledgeable But didn't overload us with info. the time management was excellent. Highly recommend this tour company! We were so pleased with the tour that we booked a different tour for later in the week. That was excellent too.
We were a group of 24 individuals from around the world. Some came to experience the Sound of Music. Others came for Mozart. Our tour guide was Maxine, who had the unique ability to remain strong and focused in spite of the rather ironic circumstances imposed on our tour. We were forced to take buses between Rosenheim and Prien am Chiemsee due to an unfortunate tragic occurrence on the tracks between those stations. But this unexpected leg of our journey gave us intimate glimpses of the lives of the residents of the small towns and villages off the beaten track. It was actually rather lovely, in spite of the circumstances. When we finally arrived in Salzburg two hours late, Maxine created a new plan on the spot and the group agreed to stay later than scheduled, so that we might enjoy as much of Salzburg as possible.
Maxine's familiarity with the city is certain. Her clear directions and suggestions made it possible for all of us to take in as many of the sites as possible in the limited amount of time available on such a tour. We began our tour at the world's oldest restaurant, the St. Peter Stiftskeller, first documented by Alcuin in the 803 CE, when Charlemagne was king of the Franks! I had traditional Wiener Schnitzel with an absolutely fabulous raspberry sauce.
Thereafter we climbed up to the Nonnberg Abbey, where Maria Kutschera von Trapp was a postulant, and later the inspiration for the Sound of Music. The original abbey was established about the beginning of the Eighth Century, and remains functioning today as the home to several Carmelite Nuns.The architecture is stunning, set against the backdrop of the snow covered Alps. The site is well worth the walk.
We then took the funicular railway up to the Castle. Begun in 1077 CE, it remains Europe's largest fortification. It is virtually intact, never having been conquered in its nearly millennium long history.
Our one regret is we didn't have more time!
Great tour! Had plenty of time to roam around but yet our guide provided a detailed tour of the highlights of Salzburg! If you have extra time in Munich I suggest this day trip.
This tour was wonderful. The tour guide was quite knowledgeable and alot of fun. We did not realize that there was that much walking and a lot up hill. The part of the tour with the guide should have been in a mini bus. Due to the inclines and distance we were unable to see the monistary or the cathedral. As big Sound of Music fans we were disappointed!
We visited Munich in January this year and decided to do this day trip to Salzburg. Our guide was really lovely and welcoming and managed cater for our group in English, German and Spanish! We met her at Munich station and spent the whole day exploring Salzburg. The city is absolutely beautiful, and was covered in snow when we went! I would HIGHLY recommend going up to the top of the Fortress in your spare time on this trip as the views are just breathtaking! The cable car was closed due to the weather when we went, but if you can manage the hike I would definitely give it a go. All in all, a fabulous day trip that I would highly recommend to anybody wishing to explore!
This was a great fun, our tour guide Lucia Peraza was very helpful and made our experience easy and stress free. She knew exactly where she was going, and edited our trip to suit our needs. I highly recommend this tour and will be using this tour centre again.
