Our first day of 2023 was picture perfect!!we did the snowshoe hike ( with no previous experience… in fact, to be honest coming from South Africa, it was my first time seeing snow!!) Franco was unbelievable, and went way beyond what was expected, in making sure we ticked all the boxes in what we wanted to see and do. ✅make a snow angel in fresh powdery snow( he even brought extra waterproof mountaineering clothes to ensure I stayed dry).✅master walking in snowshoes( he was kitted out and clearly a master mountaineer, and made sure our safety was always first).✅postcard worthy photos of our winter wonderland. This was definitely the highlight of our trip to Austria, and although pricey, it was worth every cent !! I highly recommend this activity with Franco, do not miss out on a once in a lifetime experience ❄️❄️❄️

We really enjoyed the show. They have a great overview of the different traditional instruments, musical styles and dancing. I loved that the finale included music from the countries of all the people in the audience.
