Excellent tour! The trains ran perfectly to time there and back and Franz was a great guide - full of information and very personable too. He gave us a guided tour for over an hour when we arrived saw places we might not have discovered otherwise, including the cemetery - sounds weird but it was brilliant then we had about 3 1/2 hours free time. My daughter and I visited the cathedral and Mozart's birthplace then spent the rest of the time exploring the wonderful Christmas Markets. Salzburg is a delightful place to visit and we are so pleased we went.

We had just one day to see the highlights of Salzburg and our guide, Lucia P, made it all worthwhile. The tour was a perfect blend of train ride and walking, of history and recommendations, combined with 3 hours of free time to truly explore the city. Her tips helped us decide what to see as well as what to eat. Overall, she was a delightful source of information. Would highly recommend this tour and guide.

Another absolute must and the highlight of our trip. Our British tour guide Ian was super knowledgeable, funny and the perfect guide. The day was gorgeous, the city perfect and this one is not to be missed! Perfect for teenagers, too. Would book it again in a heartbeat.

Great tour, wish I could take it in the summer, to see the gardens in all their splendor. Tour guide was informative, spent about 1.5 hours with us showing us the key sites, like Mozart house, then we had about three hours to wander on our own and enjoy the city. You have to try the Sacher torte, it is delicious and in a very beautiful setting the cafe is part of the Sacher Hotel, no more than 10 min walk from Mozart house. The tour is well worth it, great way to spend the day and excellent value for the price.

Really enjoyed this tour! Ride to Salzburg was comfortable, tour guide was friendly, hit up the main attractions on the tour but was left with time to explore on our own. Salzburg was absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed this tour.
