Salzburg: 2-Hour Guided Walking Tour with a Photographer

After meeting your guide, the first part of the tour deals with general information about the town, an introduction into baroque architecture and a wonderful walk through the gardens of the Mirabell Palace. Afterwards the route heads towards the Kapuzinerberg mountain, from where you will have the best view of the medieval fortress Festung Hohensalzburg. The next part of the tour will pass the romantic alley of the Steingasse before crossing the bridge in order to enter the bustling Getreidegasse road, the place where the most famous son of the city was born, namely Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Small little alleyways will finally lead us to our final destination, the formal church district, with its pompous baroque architecture. During the whole tour, the guide will take pictures of your experience and provide at least 25 edited pictures via Dropbox link on the same day the tour takes place.

The bike ride was fantastic and the guide great but it felt like a rip off as we’d booked for 4 hours yet it seems the guide only had it booked in for 3 (she kindly did 3 and a half hours) and I hadn’t realised the cost of bikes weren’t included (it was in the detail of the booking but I’d missed it and I assumed a 4 hour bike ride would include bikes?)! In the end they didn’t charge for the bikes which was good. Impressed with the guide but not the get you guide service.

This is highly recommended. Edwin arrives on time and he is very academic and professional. He has a very good historic knowledge about the place and he will fill you with that. Edwin will point out the best spots as recommendation for your next activity and for the photograph of course! Pictures are really great. Edwin also translating everything in English so I can understand which I am grateful for. This photowalk really exceeded my expectation. Thanks Edwin!

A+++ tour guide. What a great experience! Edwin took the time at the beginning to understand what we were most interested in seeing/learning. We learned and saw so much that it was hard to believe that we only spent 2 hours together. Besides really enjoying our time with Edwin, he gave us the best suggestions on how to spend the rest of day. We only had one day to enjoy Salzburg and we are so very happy with how we spent our time there.

It was a great tour of Salzburg with great photo stops. Edwin has an incredible amount to tell about Salzburg and the surrounding area and also conveys it very well, I was never bored. The photos turned out excellent!

Edwin was great to work with! Showed us around Salzburg and provided us an amazing tour!
