Local Japanese woman who brings interested guests closer to her adopted home of Salzburg in a charming, humorous and sometimes funny way.

Wonderful! We were the only two in the bus that day so we sat up front and had a personal tour of the city highlights, in English.

Wonderful guide. She is very interactive and encourages questions.

Our Japanese woman was great. There were only two of us.

A little more expensive than other providers but great.
