I strongly recommend this trip!

We joined the trip on 28 July 2015. Our guide, Elizabeth was great and had excellent knowledge about the places we visited. Our coach driver sorry for forgetting your name! on no 154 was also very friendly and drove professionally.

About the trip, Salzburg is a very beautiful city. We enjoyed very much though the free time was not very enough. Don't miss the chance to have a lunch on the castle. You can see a wonderful scene and the price is very reasonable.

This tour was amazing. Our tour guide nancy was very knowledgeable about the place and took us through the places of interest. Early start from munich and little more free time in salzburg would have made it much more pleasant ex.addition of cable car ride in salzburg. Otherwise I enjoyed this trip and recommend it to others as a must to do..

Our tour guide was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Salzburg is a beautiful little city worth visiting. There are lots of wonderful shops and cafes to visit. The boat ride on Lake Wolfgangsee was beautiful. The water is clean and the landscape is heavenly. I highly recommend this trip to anyone interested in getting a glimpse of Austria. Wish we had more time, but 11 hours was a nice chunk of time. Bus was comfortable too!

Elizabeth as a guide was excellent. The bus was very comfortable and had enough drinks at a very reasonable price. The trip and the boat ride was just superb.

Well planned and a fantastic trip to a beautiful little city. Would have been great to have some more time in Salzburg itself but I loved seeing the lakes as well! Shame about the weather but the guide was fantastic.
