I thought the tour was informative and the tour leader very patient and friendly. He used photo props so people could better understand the differences between the past and the future Salzburg. The tour covered a range of information about the history of Salzburg, some interesting facts about the city, why Mozart is important as well as some spots from The Sound of Music film.

Great tour in a beautiful place! This tour was pretty complete and the tour guide was a great one. He can speak a few languages; the tour was in english and we spoke Spanish with him all the time. We saw the most important attractions of the city, and a few other more. Also, he offer suggestions about places to eat, to buy souvenirs and of course, about the best attractions to visit. We definitely recommend this tour!!!!!

Gerhard is a superb guide. Do yourself a favour and book in as you will learn so much. Gerhard is passionate about Salzburg and has really researched his city and has so much knowledge to pass on. He is a really nice guy and very professional at looking after his group. Don’t be a Scrooge and give him at least 10 Euro. He is worth it! The map he gives out is worth 10 Euro alone and has so many excellent tips. We tried out the two coffee shops and both had Melbourne standard coffee! Thanks Gerhard Neil and Kim

Had a great time being shown around Salzburg by Gerhard. It was my first time in Salzburg and I really feel as if I didn't miss anything. What was even more interesting was that were these undiscovered view points of the city that he showed me around which were absolutely beautiful! Really friendly and knowledgeable guy. I'd highly recommend!

I have been Salzburg several times but without this tour, I have not been able to discover many places that I missed last years. It is always better to have someone who knows the place and can tell you about it. Thank you and I highly recommend others this tour.

Tanya, our guide, was wonderful. She gave us an introduction, and I mentioned specific items of interest that we were hoping to see, and she accomodated! At her usual stopping point, she offered to show us a few more sights if we were interested and we followed her!!! My teenagers were eager to continue the walk and learn more about this amazing city. Tanya, was warm, and enthusiastic and gave us excellent recommendations for one of the best meals we've had in Europe! Thanks again!!!!

My husband and I recently hopped on this free tour in Salzburg. It was very nice, good information about the city and a... nice walk through Old Town. Our guide had a binder of historic photos to share, which I thought was a nice touch. Thank you for a great introduction to a beautiful city!read more
