Thank you, Robert! You professionally took good care of us all and liked all the details. Overall, the minibus was clean and comfort. Everyone was provided with an ipad and my teenage children saw the movie provided on the ipad. It made them more interesting to engage the tour. I am a great fan of the Sound of Music. But watching it again refreshed the scenes and the beauty behind each scene. Highly recommend to watch the movie before you arrive schalzbutfrg.

This is an AMAZING tour, they are serious about no more than 8 people, the day that we went there were 2 groups one of 4 and one of 5, many other companies would have just run the 1 tour. The transport was super comfortable and water was cold and plentiful. Rui our guide was super knowledgeable and personable and let our curiosity and interests lead the conversation whilst still giving us all the great historical facts.

My tour guide Katherina was the best of the best. She made of this super long day a beautiful trip, she was so helpful and gave us a great time. Also Natasha the tour guide in Salzburg was great and explained us every detail! I super recommend this tour!
