Excellent tour with small group. Not too over the top with the Sound of Music filming sites and time to do your own thing in Salzburg. Maxine was great as a tour guide, and had plenty of information on history in Salzburg and the Sound of Music. Very caring and helpful with tips on other places to visit. She knew more about the Neuschwanstein castle we were to visit two days later than the actual tour guides at the castle. Great recommendations by Maxine on where to eat for lunch in Salzburg, which the whole tour group took her advice and experienced a great tasty authentic Austrian lunch. Would definitely recommend this tour.Reviewed by: Jodie C, February 2014
This was the perfect trip for a quick trip to Salzburg. Our tour guide was very friendly, spoke perfect English, and was very knowledgeable about the region. We didn't have to worry about anything, just show up and enjoy the tour! The fortress was truly amazing, and an endless museum of artifacts and history, with the best views of the entire city.Reviewed by: Boyd M, February 2014
Salzburg is a beautiful city, especially when lit up for Christmas. The guided tour covers the main points of interest without getting into too much detail. Surprise the guide by knowing what the Doppler Effect is! The free hours leave time to choose 2 or 3 places to spend longer at. The views from Hohensalzburg fortress are magnificent on a clear day. Suggest taking the funicular railway since walking up and back eats too much into the free time available.
If you’re a Mozart fan needless to say you’re in your element with 2 museums, i.e. his wohnhaus – the house where he lived – and his geburtshaus – the house where he was born – to lose yourself in! Following this you can get lost in the world of red and gold which signifies the Mozart chocolate. Suggest the brand Reber does an infinately superior job to Mirabell. If you want to splash out move on up to the premium world of blue and silver where you will find the ‘Original Salzburger Mozartkugeln’ produced by Café Konditorei Fürst. The guide will point out one of their shops during the tour.
If you want to buy a Sachertorte at the Sacher Hotel shop be aware that it closes at 5 pm on a Sunday!
We were a large group so it was split in two and left in the charge of Susan and Geoff. There was a problem with the train. Having waited an hour or so it was announced that the train wasn’t going anywhere and we were to get off and on to the next scheduled train, in effect joining everyone who had originally planned to take the later train. You can only imagine the pandemonium! Despite all of this Susan and Geoff managed to set off from Salzburg station with a full complement of tourists!
The train journey is 2 hours each way so bring something to entertain yourself with!

The trip was great. The old city is not very large, so there is plenty of time to see everything during the free time period.Reviewed by: Friar001, January 2014
