What people are saying about St Gilgen

Excellent trip. Scenic view, peaceful country side, rich history., knowledgable guide, lots of history briefings on both world wars on the way. It is also good timing to visit during winter time. Definitely worthwhile.

really a relaxing excursion with a personable, funny guide who has a lot of knowledge and passes this on in an exciting and funny way. Thank you, the nice Leopold for the nice afternoon .. (the steirer)

The guide was very good and he knew so much about Austrian history, I got very amused and I learned a lot. I only regret that we had so few time to enjoy more of Salzburg, I wish I had more time...

It was an amazing trip! Would definitely recommend! Beautiful views, relaxed, detailed history from the host and loads of time to walk around the towns.

Excellent . Both Julio and Naomi were amazing. Best experience of our Eastern European vacation.
