About Monkey Business Tours
Our Tours where created to bring nature and adventure to people in an unique manner, let us organize everything for you. The tours run daily from May to October. We organize private and group tours as well. This is what we offer: The Eagle's Nest tour is designed to turn you into an explorer of bunkers and WWII locations. We hike to the Eagle's Nest which allow us to visit locations that otherwise would be inaccessible to bus tours. Our rewards are stunning views of the Alps, lunch or picnic at the top of the mountain and of course a memory that will last forever (Tip: You get a discount to go to sauna after the tour). The Mondsee bike tour is a family friendly bike ride that takes you to one of the most picturesque lakes in Austria. This tour mixes a comfortable ride with extra activities along the way such as swimming or a small hike to a secret waterfall (Tip: the tour finishes at a sailing school were you can enjoy all sorts of watersports).

Overview
The first time that Easy Company part of the 101st. Airborne division reached the hills of Obersalzberg most of the buildings in that area where destroyed. If you visit this area today you will see that a lot has changed, the forest has taken over and a big parking place leads people straight up the mountain. This tour is here to provide you with far reaching insight of the historical locations hidden in the forest, see the ruins of Hitler's house and other WWII sights that will bring history to life. Then hike up from there to the Eagle's Nest and you will following the steps of the first American soldiers that got there by foot in May 1945. Even though the Eagle's Nest is one of the most visited places in Germany our tour will take us thru a more richer and less traveled path. The tour is a mix world history, exercise and incredible landscapes.
I take pride in offering the best possible experience to deliver professional and safe guidance in the mountains with a relaxed atmosphere.

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

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

We absolutely LOVED our day with Claudio and could not more strongly recommend making this tour a priority if visiting Salzburg (if we ever come back we might even do it again!). The review of the other travelers are all accurate -- Claudio is professional, kind, and extremely

Claudio, our guide, is the reason we booked this hike tour to begin with. The comments from others on trip advisor touted his acumen as a guide. After completing our tour of Nest at his side, we can only agree with them! Claudio meets you at the Mcdonald’s by the central
