Initially being a tour guide was more a student job besides my studies of business administration, in which I have an MBA degree. After a while I noticed that this is not only a job, it is my real passion. Since then, I have been doing tours in large parts of Europe on coaches, minivans and ships during river cruises.
Certainly, I am specialized in the Alpine region, particularly in the Salzburg and Bavarian area. My favorite tours are the lakes district tour to Hallstatt, the Bavarian mountains (Eagle's Nest, salt mines and Lake Königssee), the Ice Caves, Innsbruck and the Grossglockner High Alpine Road.
My goal is showing my clients the most beautiful and interesting sights of my area and also places which are off the beaten tracks on private tours in my own Mercedes van. Apart from my mother language German, I am fluent in English and Spanish and can provide a big knowledge of history and geography in a relaxed way.
In my free time I love to go mountain hiking, sailing and skiing. Additionally I am very interested in magic art and I am member of the magical society in Salzburg for many years.
A Recent Review of this guide
Marcus was great! Not only did he give a wonderful tour filled with Salzburg history and Sound of Music tidbits, but he also did so on Christmas Day, which we were really grateful for. He also took us to this delicious restaurant for lunch, which we would have never found on our own. A fun tour that packs in everything you want to see in five hours.
I have a license for the conveyance of passengers. I have a MBA degree for business administration.
I am a professional driver-guide with an own company and minivan.
I do not offer walking tours in cities in Austria, I only provide guided tours on my van.
