The most worthwhile 3 hours in Salzburg. We wished it was six! Heidi is a trove of knowledge and enthusiasm for Salzburg and its history and general European history to give context. Her recommendations for further stops on our travels proved excellent! She knows the city inside and out and conveys this knowledge with humour and enthusiasm. We were absolutely delighted, and grateful.

Heidi was our guide and she is phenomenal. She told us so much about Salzburg’s history and took us to wonderful spots for scenic views and unique shops. If you enjoy history, Heidi is the best guide to have.

Had a great tour with Maroine. He was very knowledgeable about the city and Austrian history. Exactly what we were looking for in a tour.

Our guide, Heidi, was wonderful! She was very informative and a lot of fun!

I could visit the city independently and at my pace.
