Probably the most eerie spot of the tour is the tower Jungfernturm, where atrocious screams from those tortured to death were supposedly overheard.

We had an amazing time. Our guide was excellent! We learned about where to eat, drink, sightsee, and have coffee! We had about 3 hours to explore Salzburg and then moved on to the bext destination. I definitely think 3 hours is more than enough to explore Salzburg.

Wonderful bus ride. Makes a short side trip thru the village of Oberammergau. Royal castles are quite impressive. Make sure you allow time to walk on the Marion Bruce to take photos. Snacks, water, and beer available with the Premium Tour.

Our guide, Aileen was very informative about the history and stories of the castle and the family. She also answered many questions concerning Munich. She also talked to each personally.

Out tour guide was Josh who was extremely animated and made the tour very interesting.
