Good tour - Our guide was excellent. He was well prepared, well informed, pleasant, and excited about his work as a tour guide. He told us about the history of Salzburg, as well as points of interest of the movie Sound of Music. I recommend taking this tour so you know what you are viewing- it makes a huge difference.

Salzburg highlights. - Great insight into Salzburg’s history. The tour also included several spots that were featured in the Sound of Music which added a bit of fun. The walk was at a good steady pace, so not too taxing for someone with mobility issues. Fantastic.

Not professional guide with constant bad comments - It was one of the worst tours we ever had. The tour guide was an older man, who kept making suggestive jokes and was extremely not professional. He made a lot of inappropriate comments about the history with expressing his opinion on historical figures and events. I could tell he knows the history pretty well, but my friend and I were so put off by his comments that nothing went in and we could not wait to get to out. I think Viator need to verify their tour guides in more diligent way. Very disappointed
