Learn the facts and legends of picturesque Salzburg city on a 2-hour private walking tour. Pass by Mirabell Palace, a complex of historic residence built by prince-archbishop Wolf Dietrich with baroque gardens. Also, visit St. Andrew Parish Church and Mozart's Residence. Then discover Medieval tenements and the Rathaus building. Walk along the famous Getreidegasse street and spot Mozart’s Birthplace. Finally, enjoy a great atmosphere at the University Square and marvel at the amazing Kollegienkirche. To explore even more, choose the 3-hour option and visit also St. Peter's Abbey. This medieval monastery has served as the home to monks for over 1,000 years. The church and the abbey have been the spiritual heart of Salzburg.

You can take the 4-hour tour and stroll down to reach the magnificent Salzburg Cathedral. The twin spires top this baroque-style 17th-century Cathedral, with a museum housing its sacred treasures. Get inside and see an amazing sculpture ceiling, organs, and great chapels. In the 6-hour version, also visit Hohensalzburg Fortress.

the guide was quite knowledgeable and kind, even if the cost of the 3 hour tour is not exactly cheap, i recommend a price adjustment.

Great tour to learn about the city in a short amount of time, especially for the first time travelers. Our guide was Maroine, a very pleasant company, who told us lots of interesting details, without being boring. I highly recommend the tour.
