What people are saying about Upper Austria

It was a great tour and very informative. We had trouble finding the meeting place as the directions given were wrong. There is a private stand right outside of the parking garage and not the grey line office as told. Please update. Other than that fabulous tour and tour guides

My daughter and I took this trip in late October, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our guide was funny and knowledgable, and made the day very enjoyable. The Eagles Nest, Berchtesgaden, Salt Mines and Konigssee are all fantastic and I would recommend to anyone.

It's a great experience to visit this historical place. Very good views from the hilltop.

Great experience made all the better by our great guide, Walter.

Excellent and easy way to go around Salzburg. Beautiful city!
