A Recent Review of this tour

What a fun day we had in Salzburg! Maxine met us at the train station, which was very easy to find and we took a 1 1/2 hour ride to Salzburg. We learned about the history of Salzburg, sang songs from the Sound of Music, ate lunch at a fabulous restaurant (which Maxine arranged) and shopped. I highly recommend Maxine. She is great tour guide. Very flexible and has a great deal of knowledge. Importantly, she is great at making things come to life through stories instead of just reciting facts.
