What to Expect
Meet your guide in Munich, and board your train with your prebooked ticket. After a scenic journey, you'll arrive in the heart of Salzburg. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the little Austrian city packs a punch with its history and culture. Hear tales of Mozart and the Sound of Music as you explore, and discover sights, such as Mirabell Palace Gardens, Salzburg Cathedral, and the Hohensalzburg Fortress. When your walking tour ends, the afternoon is your own to explore as you wish. Perhaps visit Mozart’s Birthplace (Mozarts Geburtshaus), or sate your appetite with a slice of Sacher torte, Salzburg's signature sweet bite. Afterwards, meet your guide for the train journey back to Munich.

Mark was excellent guide, gave a lot of info about Salzburg on the the train. It was 2 hour train ride. After that Mark took us through all main sites of Salzburg, except the Fort. Then we had 2.5 hours to explore on our own. Overall it was great. Mark gave a great tip to go up

We recently did this trip with Patricia as our guide. We had a great time and Patricia was very knowledgable. The best part of this tour is that you get a guided trip around the the city but then you also get time to explore on your own. Salzburg itself is a cute and friendly

We were very disappointed that with two days notice the tour was inexplicably canceled. Our group of six was really looking forward to seeing Salzburg and we had little time for an alternative option. They did offer to reschedule our tour for the day after we left Munich; not
