Seeing the Compound of the Cathedral church and Mozart’s house. The city itself seems to have a tremendous life and history. View of the mountain and the castle and the church itself is magnificent. Our guide Karlota was great - she has a great sense of humor. She is knowledgeable and also very helpful. It was a great experience. Thank you!

Awesome Guide... The Train Might Be Late.
VickieB_J

It was a wonderful trip! The only drawback is that the train was late, which shortened the tour. This was not the fault of our guide. It is just something to keep in mind for the tour. The guide did try to speed up our tour to allow us some time to explore the city, which I appreciated.

An unforgettable experience of beautiful Salzburg! Beautiful town with historical integrity kept within the old part of town making for a genuine experience of the past times within this little town. Our tour guide - Maxine - made the excursion informative, low stress and fun. Highly recommend her as a tour guide.

Don’t miss Salzburg while in Bavaria.

We loved our day tour to Salzburg. It was our first visit and we only had the one day. This was perfect. Our guide, Elizabeth, was delightful, full of information, a great communicator and a good time manager. We appreciated the help navigating the train and bus. We saw a lot and learned alot about this lovely and interesting historical city. We could have used more time as there was so much to see and do. Going back to Munich later would have been nice if it could work. Elizabeth helped make the tour as comfortable as possible for all participants.

Good but Very Quick
Brandon_P

If this review was for Maxine it would be 5 stars! She was very well-organized, friendly, and taught us some interesting facts about Salzburg. It was amazing to go see such a beautiful and historic city, but the tour should definitely be lengthened by at least an hour. As currently set up, the trip leaves no buffer for train delays. Maxine kindly set up reservations for lunch at a restaurant, but we skipped it because if you join for lunch, you’ll have at most 1 hour to explore the city. We did not join for lunch and still had to hurry up to see the few things on our list. If you are happy to enjoy a pleasant train ride, learn some history about Salzburg, get a thorough but quick walking tour of the city, and really just get a taste of it, this tour is a good option. If you want to really explore Salzburg and have sufficient free time, this tour may feel too rushed for you. We thought Maxine was great, and walked away feeling mostly satisfied (Salzburg is a small city), but just be aware of the time constraints when booking this tour!

Thanks for the honest review of your trip to Salzburg with us. We are glad to read our guide Maxine was able to make the day for you, albeit if the guided tour of Salzburg felt a little too short for you.

Susanne was really good. She was very informative. She was really mindful of the guests ensuring we all stayed together on the train and on the walk, and tried to keep us in the shade as much as possible as it was extremely hot out. Would definitely recommend her as a guide to Salzburg.

Tour cancellation without notice

This trip was canceled due to guide contracting Covid. Unfortunately, we were not notified until we went to meeting place. We were told we would get an immediate credit, which has not appeared.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Thank Ilse for your feedback. We did try to contact you via email, which you sadly did not read until you arrived at our office. I am very sorry if you feel like a guide testing positive is a detriment, as we also would rather have our guide safe and not infected with the virus. The credit will take up to 5 business days, as mentioned prior, and you did receive it after that period, sorry if that also felt like an inconveiniece.
