Fantastic Walking Tour App. We completed this amazing walking and reading tour on the second evening of our arrival in Salzburg. It helped us navigate around the beautiful City of Salzburg,giving fascinating information about each destination.. Great fun and very rewarding to be guided by the navigational link to each section,of which there is ten in total. The images and written explanation of each destination inspires you to walk towards them,thus seeing them in reality,which is very exciting. We thoroughly recommend this self walking Tour

All very enjoyable. Perhaps the only thing that needs revision is the walking tour of Salzburg. It was 1530 before we had an opportunity to have lunch. And, relevant to the height of summer tours in particular, there was little opportunity to stop quickly to grab water etc. So my recommendation is to look at the schedule and perhaps revise the planned walking tour to accommodate lunch and/or drinks breaks. Also, best to advise customers that it would be beneficial to take/have water available for the walking tour.

Our tour guide was amazing , full of knowledge and really made the tour great. The van should not be used in hot weather. There were 3 of us in the 3rd row of a passenger van that is electric and there was virtually no air on a hot day it made it quite uncomfortable and the driver refused to drive with the windows down.

A great activity, fun and effective for discovering the city with children!

We did the scavenger hunt as a couple with our dog and we enjoyed it.
