The guide was very gracious and really charming with an Austrian dialect. She spoke openly about the executioners, witches and situation of the church in Salzburg. We visited a few locations and were able to see the city from another side. Great!
It was a very interesting and fun tour through the dark times of Salzburg. The life of important, but unpopular "professions" such as hangman were shown in the right places in Salzburg's old town and described very well.
An extraordinarily charming guide who conveys the dark side of Salzburg's past in a friendly and exciting way. We will definitely book another tour on a different topic
