Our tour guide did not give her name, so that was not a good start! She knew lots and lots of dates and history and I felt that the tour was more a history tour than a sight seeing tour. She walked through many squares (platz) which I probably wouldn't have found on my own, and took us to the... More

I'd read about this tour on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. We had a very good tour guide who's english is quite good and is a local, lifelong, Salzburg resident. If you are looking for a nice paced tour with general historical information and suggestions of other attractions to see this is a good option.

Walking tour of old city was very interesting with art historian Christiana walking us around for just over an hour, relating stories and taking us into the cathedral, telling us about Mozart. In English. 10 euro

Mr. Knoll was our tour guide for us Americans and English. He let us know that the Allies had no right to bomb Salzburg. Starbucks and McDonalds don't pay taxes and shouldn't be here. When my husband inquired about some gold plaques on the city streets engraved with Jewish names, he went on an anti-Semitic and anti-Roma rant. Not a... More

Old city not very large so easy to walk around and see it all; but much to see and to enjoy. Take your time. Walk up to the castell. Many places to eat and buy great chocolate. Great great city. (If your in Vienna, take the train; even for one day visit well worth it)

It is one thing of the most beautiful cities to visit. Salzburg card valid for day is a convenient for touring within city as it covers entry fee for most monuments and also travel around city. Info centre at salzburg main railway station is very helpful.

As the last reviewer mentioned, the address is wrong at the moment. The tourist office is at Mozartplatz 5. In winter only a lunch tour is available which is €9 per person (20% discount with Salzburg card). Although it's a paid tour, I would have tipped Gabi the same if it were a free walking tour, or even more! She's... More

DO NOT GO TO THE ADDRESS LISTED HERE! Thankfully, we decided to go there early, so we realized in time that we'd accidentally walked over to the central administrative offices (not meant for tourists). The real office, where the daily tours start, are in the Mozartplatz in old town. DAILY TOUR I highly recommend the daily walking tour as a... More

The tourist office and the Salzberg card are great. However the tour suggested with the card was terrible, the guide was unfriendly, difficult to understand and it was very disappointing. There was little information given, mostly just suggestions to go and look at other things. A genuine waste of euros.
