“Great fun and many perks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

We took the sound of music tour with David from the uk. He was great!

The big bus we took was only a third full, so 20 people. David helped take pictures at every stop and knew a lot about the history of the real Von trapp family as well as the American film.

Pleasant surprises
- we got to wear the original drivers hat from the movie
- tobaggen ride
- free bus pass for the rest of the day

I am very glad we choose grayline. Don't go any other way!

“Hop On Hop Off”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

We took the hop on hop off tour, and it was great. We got to see all of the places we wanted to see. It doesn't include the Sound of Music sites that are far out of town, but it does include ones that are beyond walking distance from the old town, including Lopoldskron Palace. The nicest thing was that they have an actual stop at Leopoldskron for a few minutes for you to take pictures. The palace isn't open to the public, so if it were just a drop off thing, you would be sitting staring at a lake for 45 minutes. But, the bus gives you a few minutes to get out and get pictures, so that was great!

“Below is a copy of an email sent to the owner of Grayline”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011

Below is a copy of a review I sent via email to the manage of Grayline tours in Salzburg.

"Dear Mr Polzer,

Abusive, dirty, rude, overpriced and contains deceitful hidden extra costs - these are the words that I would use to describe "Panorama" tours in Salzburg, Austria.

"The saving grace of Salzburg, Austria" - that is the statement that I would use to describe your staff member Bernhard (or Bernie).

This man not only, single handed, turned our trip from a horror into a joy, he has made my family wish to return to Austria in the future.

His humanity, compassion and honesty is exactly what I expected to receive while in Austria - and it truly felt like Austrian hospitality.

The information on his tour provided clear, honest and very informative details about what he was displaying at each part of his trip.

With that said, it would be wrong of me to leave out the other tour operators at "Salzburg sightseeing tours" - they were all good, and spoke clearly
and that is what I expected from a tour company - but Bernhard stood out.

If you could please provide Bernhard with a copy of this email - It would be most appreciated

Thank you Bernhard "

I would strongly recommend this company.

“Nice price, guide and efficient!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

We went on the Salt mine tour with Steve as our tour guide. We had a blast at the mine. Steve was very helpful and thoughtful. What an interesting guy with so much information! He was gracious and took us on the scenic route and explained some of the history around Salzburg. If you want it real then chose Steve!

“Very Impressed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2011

We did the Sound of Music Tour and the tour of the Eagles Nest. I can somewhat agree that the Sound of Music tour is a tad rushed, but it's already 4 hours long - that's long enough for me anyway. Both tour guides for each tour were very helpful and full of information. On the Sound of Music Tour, you get to go on a Tobogan (sp?) down this mountain near Fuschl, Austria (as well as passing the Red Bull HQ - very cool!). Highly recommended Tour Line.
