GREAT! Loved it. When I signed up for this tour the tour operator told me that it was a Sound of Music tour, which it was not. Our guide did help arrange for some of us to buy an additional tour while we were there but it wasn't as good as I would have liked. It kept us from doing a couple of other things to do in Salzburg but the city is wonderful and our guide was very good.
Beautiful city. Tour made even more enjoyable by out guide Alun. Highly recommend it.
Really great and easy day trip from Munich. Salzburg was beautiful and historic, and we learned a lot of interesting information from our guide, Franz. Would definitely recommend.
The tour was well-planned and to the point. Unfortunately, a day was not enough for me to fully enjoy Salzburg but I blame the train schedules for that. Our guide Jeff was very friendly and efficient with his in-train map prep and tour of the city which helped me make the most of my time there.
Fantastic!! Loved it . Alun our tour guide was great. Such a beautiful amazing city. It's a must see.
Despite a very rainy day, the tour was wonderful, and Jeff was a true professional ... Very knowledgable, informative, and personable. He also had a great sense of humor and made the train trip to and from Munich very enjoyable. We had lunch at the oldest restaurant with a lovely family from Atlanta. All in all, a great day in Salzburg.
It's heaven on earth, very beautiful city, it's a must to visit. The tour were very organized and the tour guide were informative, yet free time needs to be increased at least with an hour.
We had a wonderful tour of Salzburg. Alun was a knowledgeable and friendly guy who gave us lots of detail and plenty to know about before allowing us free time to really walk around and see what we were interested in at our own pace. Salzburg is a beautiful city and a smooth trip there, excellent guide and wonderful views of Mozart and Sound of Music areas, the fortress and beautiful old churches made it a trip we wouldn't have wanted to miss!
FANTASTIC! It started off with a wonderful train ride from Munich to Salzburg. Our guide, Ian (and his mate, Bernard the dog) were super knowledgeable. Ian gave us about a one hour history lesson on Salzburg (and threw in a little Germany history too) leaving us with more free time in this beautiful city. We toured the famous "Sound of Music sites" , as well as the Old Town of Salzburg. We toured castles, sweet shops,as well as the old market square. Ian recommended places to eat, places to drink and the history of where these delicacies come from. We were very happy with all our tours we booked through Viator, but this was one of the best , hands down. Thank you Ian!
Tour guide was absolutely wonderful and so knowledgable of the area and history! The tour itself was fast-paced and left us wanting to come back and spend more time here. The old town was quaint and beautiful. Shopping area was a bit commercialized but packed full of a variety of different stores. The train ride to and from Salzburg was very comfortable and pleasant. Our guide kept us posted on the highlights of the local areas as we passed through them.
Even with a grey sky, Salzburg is such a beautiful city. Go up with the lift to the fortress the views are incredible! Our guide Alun was funny and informative.
Excellent day trip from Munich to Salzburg. Tour guide provided great information on the history, culture, sites, local food favorites.
I was in Europe for 10 days and participated in 11 different tours. This tour was BY FAR the best. Maxine, our Tour Guide, was attentive to each member of our tour group and made sure that our expectations were reached (and exceeded!). She was well prepared with information, pictures and music and we had a blast with her. She even helped arrange a specific taxi trip for my husband and me during our "free time" in Salzburg. WOW! I would do this again in a heartbeat! Thanks, Viator!
Salzburg was a surprise because it has a relatively small Old Town area where the film Sound of Music was filmed. The film sites are all very close together in the town. It was lovely to have a few hours on our own to navigate the town and have lunch (city map provided by the tour guide). Salzburg is very hilly and touristy, but in early April, there were very few crowds and lovely weather. The crowds in summer must be overwhelming. We ate at a lovely restaurant at the top of the fortress (the only one up there) with a gorgeous view. Buying a ticket for the cable car to the fortress is about 10 Euros per person, but it includes entry fee to the fortress museum itself which is worthwhile. Restaurants abound in the city below as well. The tour guide, Ian, and his pup Bernard, accompanied us and gave most of the history lecture on the two hour train ride into Salzburg. He gave us about another hour's worth of info in town hitting the main film and city sites before turning us loose. Be prepared to walk a lot, but you will be looking in every direction to capture the quaintness all around.
