    Well, long in development, the birth place of Mozart. This gift was after the bereavement of my Father. Christmas is a time like no other to go! All gifts are in the style of Salzburgs most famous son Wolfgang. Truly special and one I will always remember!

    A must for any who loves the classical era.

    Excellent your. Excellent guide Leopold
    5 star review. Very interesting tour of the Bavarian mountain lair of Hitler and the Nazis.
    Set in a beautiful location with stunning views at the top. Leopard was at the top of his game with many interesting anecdotes, bringing the tour to vivid life.

    The fenicular was great transport up to the castle . The restaurant had great views and a good ambiance. Food was good, we were on the classic menu which was a set menu those on the VIP had a choice but saying that our food was good and we enjoy it. After the meal we went to the hall for the chamber concert. It had original wood panelling . The string quartet were marvellous as was the clarinet player. We throughly enjoyed the music which lasted an hour and a half. We returned to the town via the fenicular.

    Our tour guide, Leo, was fantastic and made our tour much better than we even expected. The drive from Salzburg to Hallstatt is scenic and he gave us lots of information about the area. Hallstatt is breathtaking! Leo gave us tips about what to see when we walked around town, including the best ice cream shoppe! Would definitely recommend this tour! Thanks, Leo! Your friends from New York.

    A great experience! The cruise was enjoyable and it was nice seeing the city from the water. The view from the castle was stunning and the dinner and service were fantastic! The concert was wonderful with excellent and entertaining musicians. We would definitely come again … and recommend this to traveling friends for sure!

    Great way to get to see an amazing amount of history and beauty if you’ve not a lot of time in the area.

    Wolter was our guide and he provided history all along the trip from Salzburg, out to the locations and back.

    First stop* was The Eagle’s Nest outside of Berchtesgaden.

    Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate - but that’s the way it goes…Wolter was kind enough to air-drop the nicer pictures I’m including against the reality of a very rainy August that the area has had this year.

    The schedule is tight, but provides enough time to go around and see the sights. The facility is now a restaurant and you may have to suspend that reality to see the rooms without dining tables and other items.

    There is a sun room area that has an exhibition covering construction through preservation. It includes both history and personalities from the time of Nazi Germany - but this will be the extent of any exhibits or evidence of what happened there between 1938-1945.

    While outside wasn’t great for us - same as with the restaurant - we had to imagine what we’d normally see on a day with a clear blue sky.

    Second stop* was Berchtesgaden for lunch - we stopped at The Golden Bar as recommended by Volter - the menus are only in German; but given the weather the Goulash & Sausage & Lentils went well with some Beer/Tea & Pretzels. Like many restaurants we’ve seen along the way - they have blankets on hand should you be cold. The town is great for gift shopping (or rain jacket shopping - I found a nice Regatta jacket Sport Babel to replace one I lost/left somewhere between Nuremberg & Munich.).

    Third stop* was The Salt Mines - If you’re interested in such things - you’ll like this. They’ll provide audio guides for non-German speakers and it was good; but I’d not repeat it and after going - if I was given the option of staying longer at any of the other three stops - I’d opt for that though I don’t think that’s really an option on the tour we purchased.

    Last stop* was Koenigsee - one word captures it…STUNNING.

    This area of Austria and Germany is AMAZING from a scenic and hiking perspective - if you’re in reasonable shape for a 40 min hike that’ll go about 100-150 feet above the lake…then dip back down as it winds along the southern shore. From the car park - head straight down to the lake, head left, and follow along the lake till you hit the trail and begin walking up. Stay on the main trail and when it splits right and down or left and up - head right and down to Painter’s Corner where some of my pictures were taken. As I said - every picture…every turn…every change of light or the clouds created a STUNNING view and picture.

    Even if you used this tour to determine where you want to come back to next time…very well worth it!

    Anelka was our tour guide she was great fun so informative my husband was dreading it but ended up loving it. When we got home first thing he did was watch the Sound of Music film. Can’t wait to come back to aSalzburg next summer and do more tours with you.

    We had Leopold as a guide & thoroughly enjoyed his company. He was very informative, not just about Austrian history, but about world history as well. We enjoyed his sense of humor & conversation. I wouldn’t recommend the Salt Mines, as the guide there (not from Panorama, but from the Mines themself) did not speak English, & did not switch on all the translations for the audio guides. As such, we don’t know anything about the mines.

    This was definitely a highlight of my visit! I had already been on a sound of music tour, but it was great to stop by a few of the places again and the church for the first time. Hallstatt was absolutely beautiful, and a must see! Since we were there in April, it seems it was much quieter than some of the busier months. The guide was very knowledgeable and it was much better being in the van than a big bus.

    The Baroque Hall in which this dinner performance takes place is a stunning, and well maintained setting for a lovely dinner and concert. The concert itself--consisting of arias from three of Mozart's most popular operas, among others, was excellent. The musicians (especially the concert maestra) and the two singers were quite talented and presented an enjoyable and engaging concert. There were breaks in between each piece, when the three dinner courses were served. The lukewarm clear broth soup with a lemon infused dumpling was served first, after 8 p.m., with the tiny entree (maybe a child-sized portion) of capauen (--think 1/4 of a game hen) served close to 9 p.m. There was an extensive wine list, which is so long that one is best advised to review it online in advance. No table could be considered bad, though I personally thought the front row table was a bit too close. The room opens at 6:30 p.m., but it's not necessary to get there that early; 7 - 7:10 p.m. would be plenty of time to get seated and get your drinks ordered. This is one venue in Salzburg for which people (tourists) do dress up. The bottom line is go for the concert and not the food; eat elsewhere before the concert.

    Fantastic tour by a great guide who picked us up in Vienna and Gaby the guide who met us in Salzburg. Car was very clean mercedes and there were only 4 of us. Guides were very knowledgable and went out of their way to make sure we were happy.

    A long day -- 8 AM till 7:30, Armand, our driver, was very good -- on the way out., he gave us lots of interesting history & facts. He has a somewhat heavy Russian accent that was difficult to understand at first -- when speaking in person, it was much easier. I realized that he holds the mike too close to his mouth -- he needs a bit of training there. Our local guide in Salzburg was Natasha -- again very good and excellent English. We were a small group (7), but it was still sometimes hard to hear her -- would have been nice to have those earphones other groups seemed to have so you could be a bit away and still hear her narration. She was great in that she asked the group "Sound of Music" or Salzburg -- and most of us wanted Salzburg -- so we got the best of both worlds and she was very knowledgeable about the city.
    My only criticism would be the stops -- one 1/2 way there at @ 9;30 AM and the other half way back - both for @ 30 minutes. The problem was that when we got to Salzburg, we immediately went on tour and didn't have time for lunch until 3:30 PM. I would suggest 10 min pit stops going and coming and an hour for a quick lunch upon arrival in Salzburg.
