Salzburg was absolutely gorgeous!

The tour was short and sweet, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and did a very good job of sharing a lot of history and interesting facts. She was also very open to answering questions. Definitely worth the time and the money.

Unfortunately, this was not a good experience for me and my son. Our tour guide was a very nice man, but we couldn't hear him over the noise of the traffic and other people around us. I noticed other walking tour groups in Salzburg had ear pieces so they could hear the tour guide without having to be right on top of him/her. Regretfully, we lost sight of our group within a half hour into the tour when my son and I stopped to take a few quick photos by the 'keys' bridge. With so many people in the area, and no way of knowing which direction they were heading, we were not successful in locating them. It was like they vanished into thin air! We toured Old Salzburg on our own but I don't feel we got the full experience that a tour could have given us. Very disappointing.

Engaging guide, interesting walk through Salzburg old town. Doesn't seem to be a lot of choice regarding tours in Salzburg.

Knowledgeable and friendly guide. Lots of very interesting historical facts about the origins of the city and its development. We would have liked the tour to finish where it began, to help orientate ourselves for the rest of our visit. All in all, good value for money and well worth doing.

The tour operators were very accommodating as we had travel issues to get to the tour and missed the original time slot. They allowed us to go on a later tour -- no questions asked -- and they did a great job. We enjoyed it very much.

June 2017 - I thoroughly enjoyed this walking tour! The guide was very informative and patient with everyone snapping photos and asking all sorts of questions. We saw Mozart's and Christian Doppler's home. My favorite part is when he let us know that a particular courtyard is where Maria Sound of Music got off the bus to meet her employer - George Von Trapp. At the end of the tour he made sure that you knew how to get back to the starting point if you wanted to roam around.
