Excellent tour

Our tour guide Elizabeth couldn’t have been better! She’s very knowledgeable and gave us a history lesson on the time period. She made it interesting and informative. She was concerned with everyone’s comfort throughout the day. She interacted with the group and provided additional experiences than the basics. We had excellent guidance concerning time and meeting places. She and the driver Robert made it the best tour we’ve ever taken. Highly recommended! (With Elizabeth)

Definitely recommended. The day was well planned, but the tour guide Elisabeth made it more special. She was so patient, cheerful and really explained everything very well all day long. Moreover, no words can describe the wonderful surroundings of Berchtesgaden Foothills and Obersalzberg, especially if you'll be lucky enough to have beautiful weather.

The trip was organized and really nice. The tour guide was very informative and funny. He’s very knowledgable and knew what he’s talking about. The only downside to this trip is the long 2 hours spent on the road, although the roads are nice. The view from the eagles nest is breathtaking, defiantly recommended !
