Our tour guide Joseph was very nice and gave us enough information needed which was great as sometimes too much information can get a bit too much especially on a bus journey. The minivan was very spacious and comfortable. He took us to the main spots in Salzburg and gave us free time to explore on our own. Definitely recommend and ask for Joseph to be your guide if you get a choice.

This is an AMAZING tour, they are serious about no more than 8 people, the day that we went there were 2 groups one of 4 and one of 5, many other companies would have just run the 1 tour. The transport was super comfortable and water was cold and plentiful. Rui our guide was super knowledgeable and personable and let our curiosity and interests lead the conversation whilst still giving us all the great historical facts.

Our driver, Julio, was very courteous and very knowledgeable, as well as Naomi who gave us a walking tour of Salzburg. Although the trip was nice and worth seeing, because we went on the 24th, many of the attractions (e.g., both Mozart museums) were closed by the time the walking tour was over.
