Charismatic Adventure

Fun, charismatic guide that provided clear directions for the group with respect to travel, suggestions for sites to see, as well as places for food or desserts. Unfortunately, guides are not allowed to provide history during the tour in Austria, so as much information as possible is provided in advance. Be prepared with a map and background to explore on your own.

We enjoyed the fortress and the Cathedral! Our tour guide, Maxine did a great job! We signed up for a small group tour but there were 31 people on the tour which did not seem to me to be a small group. There were delays with the train that day so Maxine asked if we’d like to stay an extra hour in Salzburg which was awesome! What a great day!

This was a wonderful side trip from Munich. We enjoyed seeing the countryside, small towns, and mist/fog interacting with the mountains. Salzburg is a lovely city with a unique history. Our tour guide took us to several key points throughout the city. She was very personable and shared great stories about the city. I only wish we could have spent more time there.

The tour guide Maxine! She has a vast knowledge of not only the history, but also the art and culture of 18th century Salzburg. In addition to Mozart and The Sound of Music, she also pointed out Doppler’s residence and gave us a glimpse of 18th century lifestyle and sanitation…. Hat’s off to her!!

Our guide Paul was absolutely amazing. He’s funny, he’s thorough, he is passionate. He really brought our group of 8 strangers together. It was an extremely enjoyable day. My only disappointment was that the city of Salzburg requires guides to pay for permission to give historical tours, so we were not allowed to be told historical information while actually on the walk (this was covered to some degree on the train ride over). I would absolutely still recommend this tour because Salzburg is beautiful and Paul is a blast, but the description by Viator should be updated to reflect that it’s less of a in-situ historical tour, and more of a guided walk with suggestions on where to visit in our own on during our 3 free hours there. But don’t let that stop you.

My daughter and granddaughter joined me for this tour of Salzburg, which was led by a very personable and knowledgeable guide named Susanne. We saw so much, learned a lot about the city, Mozart, and saw several “Sound of Music” sites. The ride up the Funicular to the Hohensalzburg fortress was a highlight. Highly recommend!!
