Claudio was truly an awesome tour guide. He communicated super well leading up to us meeting and once we arrived he demonstrated his extensive knowledge as well as being a very personable guy. I highly recommend this experience to anyone that enjoys hiking, history, and spending time with good people. I was really looking forward to the tour and Claudio over delivered! I will no doubt reach back out if I’m in the area

Experience
Get to hike up to Eagle’s Nest and there’s so much nature has to offer which will be missed if you take other tours that offer a couch ride to the top (Eg. listening to the cuckoo birds, tasting the fresh pine leaf, and breathing the fresh air).

I went on a cold and wet day; while it is presumingly less enjoyable to others, I strongly urge you not to cancel it. I believe that different weather brings different experiences-
my hike felt mystic as I was constantly in clouds. I couldn’t see the view because it was blocked by the clouds. But a couple and I (who are in the group) decided to gamble and wait, and yes, we managed to have a glimpse of it and we started cheering!

Guide
Claudio is a really nice guy! He offered his own snacks, poncho, trekking poles, and heat warmer to hikers who need it; providing an excellent guest experiences. He was also friendly to others, greeting the bus drivers, giving way, and the locals seem to know him well too. Apart from his amicable personality, he is knowledgeable. He shared with us different genres: history, sounds of music, nature, local tips of Salzburg such as food and sites.

I had a great time being in his tour. It is not a typical leisure tour, but an authentic, sensorial and active experience.

This was by far one of the best tours my husband and I have been on! We did the hiking up to the Eagles Nest as well as the bike ride around Mondsee Lake. We had such an amazing time and Claudio was so passionate and knowledgeable about the history of Salzburg and WWII. We explored the bunkers which was a huge highlight and spoke of all the history. The bike ride was magical around the crystal blue lake. We even stopped at a waterfall which was a nice surprise. The whole time Claudio was very professional, helpful, and so much fun to be around. We would highly recommend any of the two tours we did!

This tour is definitely 10 out of 10! Right after completing it, I have already recommended it to my friends.
Stunning views of the Alps, tranquil of the forest, enjoyable experience of hiking, visiting places with a lot of historical background behind them, reaching the top - the Eagle's Nest- with 360° view of the mountains, no more words needed.
Just keep in mind that it's not a leisure walking in the forest, it's a hiking tour of 2-3 h with moderate elevation, hence requires adequate fitness level to enjoy it. Don't forget to pack snacks and a lot of water.
Claudio is highly knowledgeable tour guide, adding to the beauty of the Alps a lot of interesting historical information. He is attentive to the needs of the group, checking on everyone regularly, so don't hesitate to take it even if you're a solo traveller.

Was trying to find a tour that wasn’t going to be a bus ride with 50 people and this fit the bill. The hike is fairly challenging but nothing to crazy. Claudio is knowledgeable and learned quite a bit about WW2 from him. Would definitely recommend this for those looking for something outside of a boring bus tour.

Hiked to the eagles nest with Claudio. Was a great day, rained a lot however Claudio was prepared and had rain ponchos for everyone, protein bars and spare water for the hike were a thoughtful touch. Excellent tour with an excellent guide. **do not do an eagles nest tour without a guide** the places we visited today are some of the most important in history and without our guide Claudio we would never have seen them. So grateful.

Despite due the corona outbreak, the busses were not going, but Claudio did! The only way to get to the top of the mounting was by foot. With Claudio we’ve had an amazing experience. His knowledge about WW2 and the Kehlsteinhaus (eagles nest) was excellent. We really recommand this tour to all of our friends and family. Everybody needs to know the history to make brighter future.

Claudio was an amazing tour guide. He's extremely knowledgeable about the area and the World War II history associated with it. It was a rainy day but he came prepared with ponchos, which was more prepared than my group was. It's definitely better than taking a bus up the hill and Claudio handles everything so all you need to do is follow along.
