VALUE FOR MONEY !!! Very well organised!!! Very comfortable and with precise timescedual!!! The stop for breakfast for 30 minutes after 1.5 hour drive was perfect! Also very good idea to stop next to the larger lake of Austria ! We have had the chance to visit the village of motzarts mother next to another lake!!!!Nice scenery for pictures!!!Our stay in Strasbourg for about 4 hours was enough even though it wou have been perfect if we could stay for another hour ,perhaps it would have been better to visit it another day because on Christmas Day and Sunday was extended crowed!! Don’t even think to use train or bus tour, the tour with the Mercedes’ sprinter is a little more expensive but it worths any penny!!

Robert was so good. His knowledge of history and has the area was extensive. On top of it, he had a friendly disposition and a good sense of humor. He also provided great suggestions regarding things to do and places to eat. Robert was also a very good driver, photographer and obviously wanted all participants to enjoy their tour experience. We were also blessed with a great weather day which was icing on the cake for everyone!

Highly recommend! The van is so comfy and spacious - I thought we'd be in a small cramped van, but this van had high ceilings and good seats. They had ipads at the seats in the van so we were able to watch the sound of music if we wanted to. The stops along the drive were fantastic. The first stop was for breakfast at a cute buffet restaurant and there was clean bathrooms too. Then the next few stops were at the most beautiful lakes with amazing views. Once we reached Salzburg, we enjoyed the tour and then the group dispersed for free time. We went up to the castle to see the view and then went to grab food before heading back to the meeting point to drive back to Vienna. The tour guide was amazing and so knowledgeable. He also had water for us in the van which was so helpful. You get to see so much in just one day! The value we received was incredible, and I'd highly recommend this to anyone.
