We really enjoyed having Carlos as our guide! He was very knowledgeable about The Sound of Music trivia and background info. He is really fun to be around, full of humor, and we absolutely loved our SOM experience and having Carlos as our guide! Obrigada,Carlos!
Carlos is an amazing guide. So knowledgeable but also very personable so it's more like spending a few hours with a good friend. Eagles NEst was unfortunately still closed late May but Carlos still create a unique tour for us so we still got to see Berchtesgaden, where Hitlers house was, the bunkers, the amazing views and the beautiful countryside including the hill from the opening scenes of the sound of music, and the original Porsche factory and current showroom. We would highly recommend Carlos to you

Carlos was a fantastic guide. We had numerous glitches as a result of changes by our cruise ship docking locations but Carlos never blinked. He dealt with the hiccups and made our tour very memorable and special. Carlos has a wonderful personality and is extremely knowledgeable about the local history. Our tour included Salzburg and some of the important Sound of Music sites. Carlos also took us to a wonderful local restaurant for a very special and delicious Austrian lunch. I highly recommend him

This was a great tour... riding in a Mercedes van and stopping frequently. Carlos was informative and fun! He told little 'behind the scenes' facts and made the places more interesting. I loved driving through the Austrian/German countryside. At the end of the tour as we requested, he returned us to his recommended restaurant with a view…and it was perfect!

Carlos was a fabulous guide! He was very informative, funny and an excellent driver. He adapted the tour to our needs & wishes. We were disappointed that Eagles Nest was closed due to weather but certainly out of Carlos' hands. We had a short window to meet the ship and he had us there precisely on time. We would highly recommend Carlos.

Great driver and beautiful new van. Knew Salzburg well and adapted to pouring rain with adaption of tour. Only complaint is it was not clear to me that he was unable to accompany us on any of the walking portion of the tour. He is very funny and entertainng during driving outside of Salzburg.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi David. Thank you very much for your review. I am very happy that you enjoyed tour. The reason I could not accompany you in the walking part of our tour is the way the Austrian law works. There are Driver guides like me and there are walking guides. Driver guides are not allowed to walk in the city and walking guides are not allowed to transport passengers in a car. I am sorry that you haven't mentioned anything on the day of the tour because I would have explained how the law in Austria is.
We had a very interesting and informative tour. Carlos was very knowledgeable, humorous and made sure we saw everything we wanted and then some. I would highly recommend Carlos and this tour.

We spent a wonderful day with Carlos. He has a vast knowledge of the Salzburg, countryside and Lake areas and a pleasant sense of humor. He was accommodating to our requests and very personable. Highly recommend if choosing a guide in Salzburg to select Carlos.
A great day with Carlos. Picked us up from our airbnb and asked what we were interested in. Was very knowledgeable and friendly and took us top some great spots in the alps with amazing views. Everything was well organized and everytime Carlos dropped us somewhere his instructions for pickup and suggestions about what to see and what to do were spot on, timely and easy to follow. Highly recommended. We don't usually do tours but we would not have seen what we did today without Carlos. A great day.

Carlos was an excellent guide, and worked with us to make sure we saw what was important to us. He was very considerate, making sure we had breaks when needed. His transportation was spotless! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him, and will contact him again if we are ever back in the area.

Carlos was an excellant guide. He went above and beyond to accommodate our situation due to the low river and our cruise not docking where is was supposed to. He had a "no problem, we can find a solution" attitude whenever any situation arose. He also was very good to my dad who could not join us on the walking portion of the tour and made him feel very comfortable while he waited. I would highly recommend Carlos as a private guide!

When in Salzburg, you have to book a private tour with Carlos! He's extremely knowledgeable about the area around Salzburg and so very friendly. We chose the private tour to Hallstatt and Carlos went out of his way to be sure we had a great time. He is very prompt and courteous and always intent on providing his clients with all the info they need to make the tour great. Thank you Carlos for the greatest day in Austria!
Karen S.United States
Carlos was excellent with facts about the area around us. History was very informative. Carlos was very personable...you felt like you had known him a long time. We really enjoyed our time with him.

Despite rain, Carlos still provided the three of us (2 granddaughters ages 11 and 12, and me, a senior) with a fabulous day. He drove us place-to-place used during filming of TSOM, and told us behind-the-scenes stories about filming of the movie and the real Von Trapp. When part of our tour, walking in fields of mountains, was rained out, he made the great suggestion to tour the salt mines. We LOVED it! Carlos has VAST knowledge of all things SOM, and is a pleasant, courteous man. Book him!!
Robert ClarkUnited States
Carlos was terrific. He knew his material and presented it well. His personality is engaging -- he was simply fun to have as a companion. He was also very helpful to us when we encountered travel delays both in adjusting the times of our tours and in ensuring that our hotel reservations were in order. There were three of us traveling, me, my wife and our grandson. All of us agreed that of the four guides we engaged on our trip Carlos was by far the best.

We want to thank Carlos for an amazing day visiting the Berkstasgarden, Alps and having a family fun day. As we had our Teenage daughter with us, Carlos was flexible to allow us to let her swim in Kings Lake which was a lot of fun. We really enjoyed the Salt Mine which was a last minute decision on our part and thanks to Carlos we were able to fit in. Would highly recommend Carlos as highly professional, very informative, flexible and a lot of fun! Thankyou so much Carlos for a fantastic day!!

Carlos is everything you could want in a tour guide. He made our tour one of the best days of our 2 week vacation. He created a day where we could enjoy the sights, sounds, and history of Salzburg and Bavaria without having to worry about any details (how to get there, where to park, how to get the early bus on a tour, and so on). If you want to live like a celebrity for a day - with someone who acts as your own private "fixer" look no further than Carlos. You will not be disappointed!

Outstanding tour and we would highly recommend Carlos. My wife and I have done tours all around the world and Carlos conducted one of the most informative and fun tour we've been on. He was very knowledgeable about all the areas that we visited and his network of connections helped ensure a very smooth and efficient trip.
