The tour is excellent. Just the kind of tour when you enjoy not only the locations you visit, but absolutely all the way to them. The views of the Alps are incredible. Salzburg is interesting and beautiful, but it's hard to talk about the Alpine lakes - you need to see it. I also liked the work of the guide, a very professional and interesting woman. I would really add a visit to Hallstatt to this tour - it is too close to the visited locations. But the overall impression is excellent. Thanks to the organizers.

Great day at Salzburg and the tour agency that GYG engaged ,Gray Line, provides comfortable buses and great tour guide. I asked Monica from graylinr and she recommended me the Salzburg tour with St Wolfgang so we do see other wolfgangsee as well with a private half an hour cruise (extra euro 13 per pax). It is great as we enjoyed the chill breeze during the cruise.

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.
