We loved the tour, it is so worth it and the boat ride was phenomenal. The only thing we would have liked is to spend more time in Salzburg, to enter the Mozart museum and explore the city more calmly. I think that with 3 hours it would have been perfect. They only gave us an hour and a half to be in the city and very little was done for us. Everything else was amazing and our guide Paul very kind and friendly.

A full on busy day which I would describe as a taster visit, allowing you time to appreciate rather than absorb everything in Salzburg. The trip on the boat is extra & is definitely worth it. PAUL was an excellent guide being both entertaining & informative; his whistle stop walking tour around Salzburg really did help get the most out of the trip.

This was a most satisfying trip. We were a group with Paul who is an outstanding guide. He is clear in his instructions, very knowledgeable and very entertaining. The time in Salzburg is only enough to get a taste of all there is to offer but the time spent traveling to Saint Wolfgang and the boat trip more than make up for any frustration.

We loved the tour and our very nice and funny guide. The only thing is that we were very tight on time and there wasn't much time to go around and take so many photos. But overall it's worth it.

Extremely lovely. Tour was well worth it. Wolfgangsee was the bomb!
