We really had a nice time and it was a great way to see some highlights in BEAUTIFUL Salzburg!! A couple of times, we had to adjust because of construction and wear comfortable shoes but none of that was bad, just notes! Would definitely make one of these again! :)

Kept safe in my bubble doing this tour which was a great overview of the city. Super easy to download and using the map it was simple to navigate to each tour point. Purchasing an audio tour made sense as I didn't want to go on any buses with noisy kids.

The audio tour was brilliant, I really enjot it. I get to walk around the city when listen to the audio guide at my own pace, and the audio was also very informative, it tells you alot stories which you can't learn anywhere else. Would highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Our guide, Thomas was wonderful, very knowledgeable and friendly. Getting to go straight to the head of the line at the eagles nest was great.

The route is great and it shows you the main highlights of Salzburg, while also telling stories about Sound of Music. Really great idea for a tour.
