We had the tour with Leo and it was great! He drove around with us in a small bus and explained and showed us everything wonderfully. The small stopover at a lake was also a wonderful change. I can only recommend it to everyone to get a good impression and, above all, an overview of the city. Gladly again! Greetings to Leo

Leo, guide, was witty and animated, loves his country and his countrymen, gave us his heartfelt stories of the sights and places he grew up with, a native of Salzburg. The one hour tour gave us the insight we needed to plot out the other 7 hours we planned to dedicate for adventure seeking in this historic and magical town. Leo made the trip well worth the price of admission.

We really enjoyed the tour. Despite the very bad weather, we were able to learn a lot about the city because we drove through Salzburg in a minibus. We would like to thank our guide Birgit Eder again, who, despite the nasty weather, accompanied us safely but very informatively on this tour.
