The guide was absolutely amazing! June showed us all the amazing little hidden gems that Salzburg has! She is ever so knowledgeable. You can tell she really loves the city, which is what made the tour even better. She really wants you to feel/see all the reasons why she fell in love with the city as well. She tailored the tour towards the key monuments we wanted to see since it was just our little group! I definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to enjoy Salzburg’s beauty as well as it’s history!

My wife and I signed up for a small group tour but ended up being the only people on the tour. Christina was our tour guide and was excellent . She is passionate about Salzburg and gave us a great overview of the city. Her commentary added so much to our understanding of the sites and history of Salzburg. We would highly recommend this tour.
