Kept safe in my bubble doing this tour which was a great overview of the city. Super easy to download and using the map it was simple to navigate to each tour point. Purchasing an audio tour made sense as I didn't want to go on any buses with noisy kids.

The audio tour was brilliant, I really enjot it. I get to walk around the city when listen to the audio guide at my own pace, and the audio was also very informative, it tells you alot stories which you can't learn anywhere else. Would highly recommend.

Local Japanese woman who brings interested guests closer to her adopted home of Salzburg in a charming, humorous and sometimes funny way.

Wonderful guide. She is very interactive and encourages questions.

A little more expensive than other providers but great.
