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.
We were so grateful Maxine came in on her day off to do the tour, otherwise it would have been cancelled, and we would have been very disappointed. She did an excellent job familiarizing us with the town of Salzburg. We enjoyed this tour very much and would recommend it to others.
Awesome!!! Salzburg is gorgeous and I honestly wish we would've just stayed there the whole time. Our tour guide did a great job. Beautiful city. Definitely the highlight of our trip to Munich.
This was my favorite of all the tours. It was absolutely beautiful, the lunch was great, the tour guide was great.
The Tour guide - He was a very friendly, full of knowledge about Germany history included Salzburge and a very organised person. He was make sure that he let us know what we going to do, what should we will aware off. We were very enjoyed. The view point was very good as we took lots of nice photos of the city.
Highly recommended. We want to say thank you to the tour guide and the best part of the tour was viewing Salzburg from the top.
Excellent tour with small group. Not too over the top with the Sound of Music filming sites and time to do your own thing in Salzburg. Maxine was great as a tour guide, and had plenty of information on history in Salzburg and the Sound of Music. Very caring and helpful with tips on other places to visit. She knew more about the Neuschwanstein castle we were to visit two days later than the actual tour guides at the castle. Great recommendations by Maxine on where to eat for lunch in Salzburg, which the whole tour group took her advice and experienced a great tasty authentic Austrian lunch. Would definitely recommend this tour.
This was the perfect trip for a quick trip to Salzburg. Our tour guide was very friendly, spoke perfect English, and was very knowledgeable about the region. We didn't have to worry about anything, just show up and enjoy the tour! The fortress was truly amazing, and an endless museum of artifacts and history, with the best views of the entire city.
