Wonderful walking tour through old town with Lisa. Lisa shows her excitement and love for Salzburg in all her descriptions walking through old town. She was super friendly and extremely knowledgeable! I highly recommend this tour.

Thanks for the warm words and the recommendation! Hope to see you on other Insight Cities tours. We are proud of our brilliant guide network in Vienna, Prague, Berlin, Budapest and Salzburg. And we now offer an expanding range of wonderful Live Stream tours of Central Europe for when you cannot hop on a plane. Have a lovely autumn.

Liza was a delightful guide, showing us as much as we could see in the few hours we had together. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed all the Sound of Music sites, learning the history and getting tips about what to eat and where. It seems like you can do cities on your own until you have a tour guide and realize how much you miss if you don’t have a guide. Really loved the cemetery, it was so beautiful. Thanks Insight Cities, this was our second tour with you. Hope we can come back for more sometime soon!

Thanks for the warm review. Glad you enjoyed our tours and guides in Vienna and Salzburg and we hope to see you in the future on Insight Cities tours in Prague, Berlin, Budapest and Munich. We're so encouraged by the positive feedback at a time when we are very challenged by the pandemic. Just beginning to give tours to fellow Europeans while we wait to welcome overseas visitors back to our cities! Thanks again.

We wanted a brief walking tour to introduce us to Salzburg and this was perfect. Liza was the sweetest person and did a great job of working with our small group (4 people) to understand what we wanted to see.

The visit provided was exactly right: right level of information on Salzburg, precise History references, a very nice guide, helpful and adapting during a very bad rainy day: a great moment.
Just a side note: our guide was not an historian, and it should not be marketed that way. This did not diminish the pleasure of the visit.

Thanks so much for the review. We're so glad that you enjoyed the tour. I promise that we don't aim to be confusing in pointing out that our guides are historians. What we mean is that we only offer guides with PhD or MA-level humanities educations. Liza has a doctorate in Italian and Portuguese Literature at the University of Salzburg as I mentioned in the guide bio that we always send to clients before your tour so that you know your guide's background. Our belief is that guides who have the passion to achieve academic degrees in humanities subjects bring a whole extra level of research skills and depth of knowledge to their touring even than their colleagues who have only obtained a guiding license (although that's quite rigorous in Austria and takes an additional 2 years of study in its own right). That's all we mean to imply by historian, someone who has researched and written enough to earn a humanites PhD or MA and brings that depth to their touring. Again, thanks so much for the review. We appreciate so much, especially at this rough time for travel. We hope to see you on Insight Cities tours again in Berlin, Prague, Vienna and Budapest.

Salzburg was beautiful and Astrid introduced us to a lot of the town's history and striking sights. It was great to get an insider's view of the city at a manageable pace for the kids as well. Astrid was also very accommodating and helped us see the Sound of Music sights the kids were interested in. We highly recommend Insight Cities tours in Salzburg.
