This was an excellent tour by our guide, Leo. Even though we had walked the city pretty thoroughly, Leo’s knowledge and historical insight gave us such a good overview of Salzburg in a short time. Definitely worth the money to see places in Salzburg we would have missed! Great tour-5⭐️

The Guide who led us was very knowledgeable without being ponderous or overwhelming. He answered many other questions about topics not necessarily directly related to the tour and had an excellent peripheral view of the world, including our home, the USA.

The decision was spot on to go for this city tour, because we saw and heard a lot, were in a small group of 4 Spaniards and our driver jumped back and forth between German and English.

Very good guide, learned a lot of knowledge even though we had already been in Salzburg for a few days. Only to recommend!

Very competent and friendly guide by Birgit. We liked it very much, we recommend it.
