Our driver, Julio, was very courteous and very knowledgeable, as well as Naomi who gave us a walking tour of Salzburg. Although the trip was nice and worth seeing, because we went on the 24th, many of the attractions (e.g., both Mozart museums) were closed by the time the walking tour was over.

The driver/guide, Tom, was excellent! He was very knowledgeable and would point out historical significance / stories of places that we passed along the way. He was also very nice to let us have time to take photos. The guided tour though of the main city was a bit too short.

Great day trip! Marcos was very informative, easy to understand and great at explaining the day’s plans. The accommodations were clean and great for sightseeing. I think the small group tour is worth the price. The drive to Salzburg is just beautiful with opportunities for pictures. Old Town Salzburg is quite a small town. I enjoyed the walking tour with Antonio and felt I got to see a few spots with the 2 and half hours of free time. Would definitely recommend this trip!!
