Awesome trip. Our guide Franz was fantastic and even lined up a place for us to celebrate New Years Eve!! And we had a great time that night too!. You get a really nice train trip into Austria and then after a guided walk around Salzburg, you get plenty of free time to do your own thing.

This was great, the train to Salzburg was very confusing as half the train split away at one point and we had to sit in the front, I'm not sure I would have figured it out on our own. Perfect amount of time in Salzburg - we did a walking tour then had some free time. I opted to do the Mozart house and then the art museum for the views - that's a MUST! We ate lunch at the oldest restaurant in Salzburg, which records show Charlemagne ate at! The food was just alright, but I'm glad we went just for the history.

This tour was awesome, and our tour guide, Craig, really helped to make it that way! He made the trip so much fun, and personally helped us to find a restaurant during the 3-hour free time. Salzburg was so beautiful, and we thank Craig for helping to make the trip so fantastic!

Its said, the tour guide makes the trip and this is true here, though Salzburg is a fantastic place to visit and this trip makes it easy to do so.

Our tour guide, Ian, was phenomenal! He had an encyclopedic knowledge of the city, its history, the history of the Holy Roman empire and how salt made this area what is was. He expertly wove the history with the places in a way no history class ever did. Can't say enough about him as a person and a tour guide.
