I really liked the tour guide! He was very professional, straightforward, clear and explained things very well! He knew what he was saying. He was also very friendly and chatted with the members of the group. Unfortunately, these tours do not offer much time to see things!

We took the tour on the 27 Aug. Our tour guide Ian was fantastic. When explaining the history of Salzburg you could see how enthusiastic he is about history which made it more interesting to listen and learn. Travel was a very easy process. Free time is great and goes so quickly. Thanks for a fun day.

Iain with Radius was an excellent tour guide, was organized and had a good plan for seeing as much history as possible in a short time frame. We reviewed the logistics on the train so we didn't waste time on the ground in Salzburg and reviewed the general history immediately upon arrival. Overall an excellent tour. One suggestion before you leave for vacation: go see The Sound of Music again so you can readily recall the Salzburg scenes.

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.
