Too bad I could not give a higher score.
The Guide was very knowledgeable and gave great information about Salzburg.
He was organized, interesting and easy to understand. He was very clear about where and when to meet and that made everything easier for us as a visitor. Everyone was on time!
The Churches in Salzburg were incredible!!!! The interiors were some of the best we have seen in Europe. Don't miss them.
The only thing we were disappointed in was the Salzburg Fortress castle which we viewed during our free time. When we got off the Funicular, the signage was poor and we did not know which way to go. When we finally figured it out there were 3 attractions on the map A, B, and C. We found A easily, but B the armory was a little harder. The 3rd the state rooms, was very hard to find. We keep going in circles and finally figured out the entrance to B and C were at the same spot and we had seen the state rooms and did not know it.
