Thank you, Robert! You professionally took good care of us all and liked all the details. Overall, the minibus was clean and comfort. Everyone was provided with an ipad and my teenage children saw the movie provided on the ipad. It made them more interesting to engage the tour. I am a great fan of the Sound of Music. But watching it again refreshed the scenes and the beauty behind each scene. Highly recommend to watch the movie before you arrive schalzbutfrg.

we took a while to locate meeting point as it was not clearly stated that it is located at basement of the congress station. the experience of cable car and enjoying the view at the top of innsbruck was fantastic. the visit to the alphenzoo was great too, able to see alpine animals which are not in my home country zoo.

I really enjoyed this tour. We stopped in different beautiful places. Sofia was really nice with everybody. She was very informative and she help everyone and made everyone feel included. The driver was quiet but nice.

Beautiful experience in a few minutes at more than 2000 meters high with a wonderful view !!!!

It is a must if you go to Innsbruck, a unique zoo of its kind.
