Leo, guide, was witty and animated, loves his country and his countrymen, gave us his heartfelt stories of the sights and places he grew up with, a native of Salzburg. The one hour tour gave us the insight we needed to plot out the other 7 hours we planned to dedicate for adventure seeking in this historic and magical town. Leo made the trip well worth the price of admission.

it was like a private bus tour. going through downtown salzburg, but also to two nearby castles you can`t get to on foot, with interesting historical background. the mozart birthplace doesn`t have much to see, but it was worth visiting to better understand salzburg`s musical roots

Great tour to learn about the city in a short amount of time, especially for the first time travelers. Our guide was Maroine, a very pleasant company, who told us lots of interesting details, without being boring. I highly recommend the tour.
