We really had a great day tour with Paul, even if the planned tour went a little differently than planned. With his very sympathetic nature, he made everything right again. He also had a very nice alternative ready for us that we would not have seen otherwise. You really have a great colleague in Paul. Thank you very much Paul. Great praise also goes to our bus driver Gerd, who brought us safely to our destination even in this heavy rain.

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.

Taking the bus is not enough time to see everything. If you have a day to spare, it's worth seeing the place. I would recommend 2-3 days stay in Salzburg if you have time. It's very accessible by train from Central Munich Station.

Unforgettable trip to a truly beautiful and elegant city. Our guide Paul was really nice and was always close to us and advised us on the route to take! I highly recommend it

Bravissimo Poul, the very nice guide who even offered us his singing performances. Intense tour but worth it. I advise
