The tour was wonderful! We had a fantastic tour guide, Lucia, who was very knowledgeable about The Sound of Music, Mozart, history, legends and little Salzburg secrets. After our guided tour, we had free time to explore the city on our own. I would highly recommend this tour if you only have a day in Salzburg.

Craig our guide was awesome and he done his best to make our Salzburg experience amazing .The low light of the tour for us is when we had a free time and Craig had told us all the meet up time and point and not everybody turned up and we had to leave people behind .This was not Craig's fault .i had a touch of sunstoke when we arrived in Munich and he ensured i had everything i needed to ensure i was comfortable.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

Our Salzburg tour was great. The starting location is right in the train station. The train ride was great and Maxine, our guide, had lots of pictures of what we would be seeing so that we had some visual reference once we were in Salzburg. Maxine reserved tables for lunch at the oldest working restaurant in Europe and the food what really good. There were 8 people in our group so the tour felt very personal. Maxine was a wealth of knowledge on the history of the City and surrounding area. If you are interested in a day trip to Salzburg I would highly recommend this tour from Radius Tours.

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!
