What isn't there to like in Salzburg - the birthplace of Mozart and the location for the filming of The Sound of Music. Lovely train ride to see the countryside outside the city of Munich and the beautiful town of Salzburg. Our guide kept us well informed before, during and after the tour. Wonderful, well organized tour and we thoroughly enjoyed it!

Our guide, Artor I think was very knowledgable and we really enjoyed our trip to Salzburg. It was a bit chilly and rainy but the city is beautiful, a bit of a tourist trap but definitely glad we went!

Great tour beginning with a train ride hosted by our exciting guide Maxine. Once in Salzburg, we walk through the town with Maxine providing an excellent overview of the buildings, history, shopping, etc. We stopped for lunch during our free time at the oldest restaurant in the world, circa 803CE. The city was charming and we could only imagine how it might look at Christmas. This tour is a must.

This tour was great. Salzburg was our favorite city of our trip. It starts with a nice train ride. The guide was great. You get a little history/information and then you are on your own to explore the city. I highly recommend this tour.

I really enjoyed this trip and I'm glad I decided to take a tour of Salzburg instead of doing it on my own. Ian was very helpful in pointing out where points of interest were and really had a lot of great suggestions for what to do in our free time. He gave an extremely helpful run down of the history of the city, which was clearly abbreviated, but it would have to be. He answered any questions we had and again, really had good ideas to help us get the most out of our few free hours in the city, depending on what we wanted.

We loved our trip to Salzburg. It's beautiful and walkable and full of Sound of Music images. We were able to be on our own for lunch and wandering around after the tour guide gave us an orientation. Loved it. Only thing I would tell them is to not play the Sound of Music tunes while we're walking through the last park. It wasn't necessary and it drowned out the nature sounds and made me feel a little embarrassed that others trying to enjoy the park had to listen to it. Other than that - a great day.
