Great trip!

It worked out excellently from start to finish. We were a tiny group of 4 and the driver, unfortunately I forgot the name, did a great job. He was very, very friendly and extremely competent. Whatever you asked him, whether about the "White Horse Inn", the Mozart family, Red Bull, where we passed, the meadows and alpine pastures, the lakes and restaurant recommendations - we found out everything and that's why we would like to visit this one Ways to say thank you again!

I was the only signed up for the tour so they couldn’t carry it out. They only told me when I turned up for it on that day. I was offered the ‘Sound of Music’ tour instead I accepted it though what I wanted was to see the lakes David, our guide on the Sound of Music’ tour is exceptional in his dedication and capability. He made the tour 5 STAR!
