This is definitely a must do not only for the guided tour carried out by natasha who was very knowledgeable.The 24 hour salzburg card is amazing value as it covers the majority of museums plus unlimited travel.

This tour was good to get your bearings and to learn a little bit of history. Having the 24 hour Salzburg card makes the remainder of your day more pleasurable as nearly all sites and lifts in town are covered. Recommend to begin early so you can take advantage of the afternoon with the card so as to visit as many places as is possible.

A good "get your bearings" introduction to Salzburg but the Palace visit is only 20 minutes, so not really long enough to actually see inside the palace

The tour of Salzburg was informative and the driver took the time to answer questions and orient us to the town. We all got out of the van and walked around the trick fountains and the mansion made famous in "The Sound of Music". We toured in the first days of spring, when tourism was light. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting the city.

Good tour. This tour covers some of the same spots as Sound of Music. I wish our guide would have slowed down a little more so we could take better photos.

The tour was quite nice but very brief, however the 24 Hour Salzburg Card is brilliant. The Card is great value and with a little planning you can get most of the major sites well visited within the Card's time limit. The Card's clock does not start until you scan in at the first location visited.

The only problem was that we had German speaking people on board, so we got the commentary twice, in German & English. The guide managed it well, but that part was not enjoyable.

It's probably the best way to get a good feel of this very charming city. We also used the Salzburg card to the hilt on the following day!!

A great tour led by a very informative driver. Saw all the sights and were able to visit those sights after the tour. Also worth having was the Salzburg Card, which gives either discounts or free admission to various sights.

This is a good overview of the city, and the Salzburg card is definitely worth having.

Nothing mind blowing, but nothing went wrong, either.

The city is beautiful and the tour was good. The driver's thick accent made him a bit hard to understand at times, but he was always more than willing to help clarify things that weren't understood!

A good "quick look" at the city from inside a smaller van with a knowledgable guide. The 24 hour Salzburg card allowed me to go back and visit a few museums and attractions for free admission, so that was a good addition/

We used Viator to book 23 different tours while in Europe. All of our other tours were well worth doing, but this tour was a waste of time. The tour guide was very preoccupied and didn't have much to say.

Note from Viator: 23 tours! You might win the prize for 'most tours booked online for one trip'. Thanks Patricia, and we hope all of your future tours booked with Viator are 4 stars.
