Excellent tour with Alun (Welsh). I think that is how you spell it. He was English and stayed in Munich for the past 10 years. He was concise and had a clear voice and let everyone know what was going to happen at the right times. Getting on the train and getting on the bus was made simple because of his instructions.
It was a really hot day and the journey by train took 2 hours from Munich and then the short 10 mins bus ride in to Salzburg from the station. We were given a map and how the walking tour would proceed. If you wanted to go your own way that was fine once you knew where the rendezvous was for return.
there was visits to churches, the castle, Mozart's two homes in Salzburg and key places where the Sound of Music was filmed. The special cake shop which you could buy authentic cake unique to the city is a must. The tour went well and Alun was the perfect tour guide. We have no hesitation on recommending this tour for cost and experience. A very pleasant time was spent by the four in our party.
Maxine was amazing! Very knowledgeable about her subject! It was a rainy day for us but she managed a really nice walking tour moving from one sheltered location to another. Good advice on the Mozart Chocolate and on places to visit during our free time.
BEAUTIFUL!!! Enjoyed our guide but did wonder why she did not sit with us on the train so we could visit and learn more, there were only four in our group. We did invite her to do so. The ride was absolutely beautiful. Salzburg was absolutely fantastic. People were kind and helpful. I would love to again!
The tour guide was a blast . She played music from The Sound of Music for us while she explained the tour. Her enthusiasm brightened our day even though it rained much of the day
This tour was fabulous! A wonderful day. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed the day. Thank you very much.
This was the best day of our 16 day vacation. We had the best time, and Iain is the very best tour guide we've ever had. His breadth of knowledge was outstanding. He was fun, interesting, and insightful. He truly made this experience a 5-star one. He gave us such a deep and detailed background of Salzburg during our train ride from Munich. My best advice....don't take this tour UNLESS Iain is your tour guide. GOOD MORNING!!!
Our guide Alun did a great job. He knew about the best spots and identified good options for the free time we had. I would recommend this tour as it is a day well spent.
Excellent guide (Maxine) made this a very enjoyable day excursion out of Munich. I found the guide the be very knowledgeable about the history of the area and the meeting place was easy to find, overall very well organized.
Alun is a very professional and friendly tour guide who provided us with useful glimpse and tips on touring Salzburg within a few hours. Highly recommended.
I have done this our twice and we have had two great tour guides. Salzburg is igorgeous and there is a good mix of guided tour and free time in the city. Lucia was the best, she gave us maps and circled places she thought we would be interested in seeing. She also told us where to get a great view of the city.
One of my favourite days on my entire Europe trip! Alun our guide was fun and interesting. Easy meeting point at the station. Train down to Salzburg was comfortable and fast. On the train, Alun gave us our map with some points of interested marked out, talked us through our plan and once there, he walked us around for 45 mins of so, getting our bearings, then left us to explore this wonderful city on our own for about 3.5 hours which was perfect. My main reason for visiting was mainly for Sound of Music sites, of which I managed to see about 4 (3 with the group, then 1 on my own afterwards), wished I'd had a bit more time to get out to some of the others, or at least done a bit more research myself before hand so I knew exactly where to head to get to some of the main ones. However! Apart from Sound of Music, it was great seeing the birthplace of Mozart, also where the delicious Sacher Torte originated from, and the pedestrian shopping street has amazing atmosphere and lots to see and do (and buy!). Definite must, great value for a great day!
It was wonderful ! We loved our tour guide (Jeff) and it was well worth the money! Would highly recommend -
