City was amazing, everything was excellent. But we spend most of our time on the road. It takes 8 hours to get there and come back. Driver was very nice and professional. Guide was very knowledgeable and nice person.

Salzburg with our guide Thomas

An early start was rewarded by a wonderful day travelling from Vienna to Salzburg with Thomas our guide who was a wealth of knowledge about the surroundings areas and Salzburg itself. He went above and beyond his remit to ensure the group understood instructions and was always ready to answer questions. We enjoyed music by various composers whilst listening to their history. We sang songs from Sound of Music to a CD of the musical. Overall we had a day which exceeded our expectations made so by Thomas s knowledge consideration compassion and humour.

Very nice trip to Salzburg. Everything was on time, Doris our guide was amazing, she explained everything pwefectly in both english and spanish. The only thing that would make this trip perfect is maybe give less time to eat in the morning and evening in order to have more free time at Salzburg since there are so many nice things to see.

It was a worthwhile tour. It started with a very puntual pick up from my hotel. Helena our tour guide did a wonderful job explaining absolutely everything on the way and making sure everyone in the group had the best information. Salzburg is worth well the visit and the time was very well managed.
