This was one of our highlights during the trip, breath-taking views and clean crisp air coupled with the charm of Salzburg at Christmastime - made the long trip worthwhile. Rui was a great guide (and driver) and extremely knowledgeable - he also drove us to our hotel in the end. I recommend this tour to anyone visiting Vienna - it is amazing!

Fantastic day out with our guide Rui. Despite the snow and inclement weather he made it fun and showed us interesting spots on the way to Salzburg. Enough time in Salzburg for a personalised tour and an independent roam around. An excellent and safe driver with a very comfy mini bus. Would highly recommend.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. I was with my Mom & sister and he was very accommodating since my Mom was in a mobilty scooter. The stops along the way were beautiful and he found us nice halfway points for a quick break.

Robert was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable- not just about the major sites but also the wider European history of the region. Driving was excellent and thoroughly enjoyed our day. Highly recommend.

It was a nice group of people. Robert was a great guide & driver. Despite the cold, rainy day, it was a fun trip!
