Patrick M.United States
Utilizing ToursByLocals was without question the best decision we could have made for our recent trip. Our guide was Dietmar (Didi). He did a remarkable job putting together a custom tour itinerary that both accommodated our travel requirements and allowed us to see multiple points of interests in the comfort of a well-appointed van. We were a group of seven with luggage. Didi was absolutely the best guide we could have hoped for as first-time American tourists to the Bavarian region.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Family Muenks! Thanks so much for this nice comment. Best wishes from Salzburg! Didi
Bill KroenerUnited States
just what we were looking for. Too bad the weather was not better!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kristi! Thanks for your comments. I wish you and your parents a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
Didi, is one of the best personal tour guide we have met. He is always puts the tour party before himself. With my party of 6 and the numerous luggage, Didi on several occassion has singlehandedly helped us checked into Airbnb and apartments and even help us unload all the luggage while we are enjoying ourselves at the tourists location. I highly recommend him if you want a fuss free and enjoyable tour in Europe. Thanks for wonderful trip in Austria and Germany
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ivan and family! Thanks very much for the comment. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.!! Didi
Marsha HeltonSedona, AZ, United States
Didi was extremely knowledgeable and gave us a very thorough tour of the Salzburg region in addition to the Eagles Nest and Hitler's Berghof house location. He speaks 6 languages, and I was amazed at this grasp of the history of European affairs. I am a WWI and WWII history buff and Didi had it down pat. He was outstanding and I highly recommend him. Also, his vehicle was first class.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marsha! Thanks very much for this comment. I hope you had still a good time in Europe! All the best to you all!! Didi
Jan WeissTEXAS, United States
Dietmar "Didi" was incredible - he was a perfect fit for us! Not only was Didi a wealth of knowledge, that he shared openly with us, but he has a great sense of humor. We are communicated prior to our tour and Didi knew everything we had wanted to do - we even asked him to pick a place for lunch & he that as well (btw, M32 was the place - the food was fabulous but only surpassed by the view! If there was a 10 Star rating - we would give Didi an 11!!!! We highly recommend Dietmar...
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jan! Thanks very much for the comments. I hope you had a safety trip home. Best regards from Salzburg! Didi
Kim DeffebachUnited States
Didi was a fabulous guide. He regaled us with interesting facts about the towns and regions we visted. His knowledge about history, current events, and physical surrounding is extensive. Customer service was wonderful.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kim! Thanks very much for your comment. All the best to you!!! Warm regards from Salzburg! Didi
Nancy Saxer (Barry Pope) S.United States
This guide is very flexible & knowledgeable about Salzburg & other parts of Austria, Germany, & Hungary.The tour to Eagle's Nest (Fall 2017) &the surrounding countryside (Including a palace, a replica of Versailles) was comprehensive and fascinating.The view of the Alps top of Eagle's Nest is a unique experience - a "must see". The guide knows the area well. One will have a better understanding of WWII & the part this area played during WWII and in the present. Vehicle - great! Highly recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nancy and Barry! Thanks very much for the comments! I hope to see you again. A very warm greeting from Austria! Didi
Belinda MetzgerUnited States
Didi was an excellent guide. Unfortunately, he didn't realize we'd purchased the Salzburg pass until later in our tour, so we were unable to take full advantage of the pass until late in the tour. It was still a great tour of Salzburg, and I would definitely recommend him for a day tour of the city. Didi was very knowledgeable about the history of the city and the various sites, and we saw so much more as a result than if we'd tried to see the sights on our own. Very thorough!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Belinda! Thanks very much for the comment. You are right, unfortunately I realized it too late with the Salzburg Cards so that we could include even the mueseums into the tour. I apologize this. Sorry, but I see you have enjoyed the rest of our tour. Thanks again and best regards from Salzburg! Didi
Carleen PimmNew Zealand
Didi was very knowledgeable, flexible and tailored our tour to our requests as the day progressed. Nothing was too much trouble and he made some excellent suggestions when we asked him to "just show us about". Would recommend Didi as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carleen! Thanks so much for the comment. Enjoy your stay in Salzburg and then your trip back to New Zealand. Best regards Didi N
Linda S.United States
This was a long day, as we knew it would be given where we were going. Didi showed us the quarry and a nearby subcamp. Traffic was a bit of a bear on the return journey and we spent time trying to find a less congested way. The camp, though, is worth the hassle of the trip to get there and back. We found the memorials erected by various countries very moving, as we were again reminded of how horrible war is and of the terror that Hitler imposed.
Michele ThompsonUnited States
We were two couples traveling on a Viking Cruise. We met Didi right at our ship and spent the next 9 hours touring Austria. He is a prompt, knowledgeable, and personable guide and driver and we had a great time. We travelled to Salzburg on one route, spent an amazing time in Salzburg including a great lunch, and then he brought us back a different route through the lakes of Austria. Truly a wonderful experience all around and would highly recommend Didi to anyone travelling in this beautiful country.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michele! Thanks very much for the nice comment. I hope to see you again in Salzburg! All the best to you and your family. Best regards! Didi N.
Carol MuszikUnited States
DIDI gets a 10!. What an awesome guide-a wealth of knowledge who went above and beyond, staying hours every day beyond our tour end times to make sure we saw everything we wanted. Got us quickly and first in line everywhere,every restaurant reservation we wanted,tour ,boat ride, and even booked a 5 star hotel at half price last minute when our booking fell thru. Gave us euros when our atm card didn't work. He knew the history of every town, historical person, every city, etc, - best 3 days of our trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carol! Thanks very much for this comment. I hope you will enjoy the rest of your trip and hope to see you again in Europe or in the USA. All the best for the full family!!! Best regards Didi N.

Brilliant tour! Highly, highly recommend. Didi is exceptionally knowledgeable, a natural storyteller with a great sense of humor and a consummate professional. He is always on time, with a super comfy vehicle and great pacing on the walking tours. He shares not only the highlights of the main tourist areas but spotlights the nuances known only by the true locals. Really appreciate his restaurant tips to the best places in town. We spent three days with Didi and are already planning our next trip :-)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Meg and Peter! Thousand thanks for the wonderfull days we had together. Hope you had a good flight back to China. All the best and hope to see you again in Europe. Didi N
Jennifer WrightUnited States
Didi was a wonderful guide that gave us ample information on the history of the city, pulled in his own personal history to make it more meaningful, gave highlights of where to go on our own afterward, and gave us excellent restaurant recommendations. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering a tour of Salzburg.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jennifer! Thanks for the nice comment. I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Didi N.
Amazing day with Dietmar who is extremely knowledgeable and so eager to share. We loved his humour too.

Heather H.United States
We enjoyed our day with Didi from the moment we met him at our hotel! He personalized the tour for us to include seeing The St Nicolas church and Franz Gruber's home in Hallein which was very special to us! Seeing The Eagles Nest and the sight of where Hitlers home was and simply Didi's wealth of knowledge of Austrian and German history was fantastic!!! There was so much else included in our day such as the monastery in Biersgarten, Ice Caves, and many Sound of Music sites!!!!! Thank You!! A great day!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Heather! Thanks very much for the day today. Of course for me it was a great day too. Perfect weather for such a tour!!! Hope to see you again in Salzburg and maybe we can enjoy a round of Golf. Best regards! Didi
Abhijit TalwalkarUnited States
I am writing on behalf of my client who is still traveling. Here is what he had to say: Deitner, the tour guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and very nice. However, he only had one speed and it was way too fast and way too much…we think he literally talked for 95% of the 4hrs we did the walking tour. It was impossible to get word in edgewise. He was nice and knew his history, but it was honestly painful…I would never use him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rosi! I really can not believe that your client said this. First of all this was a 4 hours walking tour in downtown Salzburg that you have booked!!!! Salzburg is a World culture heritage with 42 churches,palaces,birthplace of Mozart,Doppler,Karajan and many others. City of the Sound of Music etc. They had done by themselves already the Mozartmuseum and wanted to do the Fortress too. As this I walked with them to places where they haven't been. As well as information for shops, bars and restaurant.
Janice XanthosSan Diego, CA, United States
This was our first time using Tours by Locals and Didi was fantastic. He was very professional and prompt. He took us to many sites that you are unable to visit on any cruise type excursion while going over the history of all the areas we visited or went past. We thoroughly loved our time visiting Austria and would definitely highly recommend this to anyone else.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Janice! Thanks very much for the comments. I enjoyed it very much to travel with you. By the way I have sent you the package already and it should be in the US next week. Thanks again for all and all the best for the whole party! Didi N
Peter McKennaUnited States
Our ToursByLocals guide, Didi, was FANTASTIC and we highly recommend the company and guides. We were able to cover so much more ground than our ship's scheduled excursion that the cost was well worth every dollar spent. Our guide got us into places that the gathered crowd did not see, got us to the front of the line, and had so much local information that we were the envy of our cruise when we returned to the ship.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Peter! Thanks so much for your quotes and comments. I feel glad to hear that you liked it. Hope to see you again in Salzburg. Best regards Didi N

Tearsa GardnerUnited States
Didi was great. Our how family thinks he was our best tour guide for our entire European adventure. He was able to give us an overview of Salzburg including the Sound of Music sites as well as an extensive tour of the Eagle's Nest and WW2 sites. His knowledge of history is staggering. He kept all 3 of our teens interest and helped us to fall in love with Salzburg.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Teresa! Thanks so much for your nice comment. I wish your family all the best and hope to see you again in Salzburg! Didi

Lyman TschanzDelafield, WI, United States
We spent a great day with Didi driving on "The Lakes with Hallstatt" tour. Didi is a wealth of knowledge, and he took us to several very interesting stops in the area near Salzburg. The scenery was beautiful and amazing, and the background on the history and highlights from Didi made the trip very special for us. Hallstatt was the highlight, and the Beinhaus was very unique. It was a bit of a rainy day, and Didi made the most of the day none-the less. Thanks for a great day Didi!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lyman! Thanks very much for your nice comment! Hope to see you again in Salzburg! Best regards! Didi
Lyman TschanzDelafield, WI, United States
The walking tour of Salzburg with Didi was truly outstanding. His knowledge of the city and the history, and his pleasant personality, was a wonderful experience. Didi is one of the best guides we have ever met, and we would absolutely recommend this walk when you arrive in Salzburg to see the city. Our only regret was that we did not book any music concerts in the city in advance, which we only learned about from Didi on the tour. Overall many thanks to Didi for a memorable experience!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Drar Lyman! Thanks very much for your nice comment!!! All the best! Didi
Lynne LoebUnited States
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our delightful and informative day-long private tour of Berchtesgaden, Koenigsee and salt mines with Didi. He was knowledgeable, personable, and focused the tour very precisely on our specific interests, thereby providing insights and options that would not be possible with most tour experiences; for example, we took a fascinating tour of Hitler's bunker at Kehlstein that would be very difficult for larger groups. A great experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lynne! Thanks for the comments! All the best to you both. Hope to see you again in Salzburg! Best regards! Didi
Peter KalanUnited States
"The Mayor of Salzburg!" Didi is great; he knows his history and the city of Salzburg - and he knows everyone in town.

Our family of 3 had a great time with Didi during our tours. Didi is very punctual and extremely knowledgeable in all the places we visited. The tours were very interesting and enjoyable. He has a great van with wifi! He is a very nice man and we really had a wonderful time in all the places we visited on the way from Vienna to Salzburg, all around Salzburg, to Innsbruck and then back to Vienna.

Donna BratcherUnited States
Didi assured we were comfortable and saw everything we asked to see. He brought our suitcases up to our room, waited while we used the toilet and then dropped us downtown so we could shop and have dinner. We were with him for about ten hours from Vienna to Salxburg. Well worthwhile. Do not miss St Michael's Basilica.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Donna! Thanks for the comments. Hope you two have a safety flight back to Kentucky. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Didi
Karen SchaeferUnited States
Didi is charming, happy and very pleasant to be with. He adjusted each tour to our wishes which made our vacation perfect. He had wonderful suggestions.

Barbara EpsteinUnited States
Didi picked us up right on time in Vienna, gave us two retired couples a custom tour of places I had asked to see along the Danube on our way to Salzburg. Didi immediately became a human encyclopedia, interpreting every piece of history, culture, even agriculture around each picturesque town along the way. He adjusted our itinerary as he learned our special interests. And so it went for four days of solid learning, flexibility, and great fun. Didi is the best professional ever
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Barbara! Thanks so much for the comments! I realy enjoyed the time with you very much and I hope so we can travel again together. All the best to you all! Didi N
Bill ScottUnited States
Didi was outstanding. He took us to all the filming spots in the movie The Sound Of Music. He even took us into Germany to show us where the filming was done for the opening sceen of the movie. Then he took us to a fabulous Austrian restaurant that was excellent. We then traveled and saw several lakes and towns and ended at the church where the wedding took place in the Sound Of Music. Didi knows his history!!! I recommend him highly!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jennifer! Thanks very much for the comment. It was a lot of fun with you and your family. Hope that you had a nice day at Oktoberfest. All the best to you all!! Didi
Didi is a wonderful guide. His knowledge of the history and the local folklore was spectacular. He kept us entertained all day. One of the highlights was that Didi could take us up into the hills where the Sound of Music was filmed. the view was spectacular and not something we would have had in a big group tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carol! Thanks very much for the comments and I feel happy that you like it that much. Didi
You couldn't have a better guide that Didi. His knowledge and fun loving nature made the day go by fast. We loved it!

Didi is simply the best! We work in the hotel industry in the U.S and really appreciated Didi's knowledge and passion for Salzburg.

Thank you Didi for making our stay in Salzburg so memorable. We will certainly recommend you to our friends.

Didi is a great guide. He is not one of those who has a prepared script, and instead takes you around in a friendly and relaxed manner (like being with a friend). So you'll enjoy while seeing the sights. We will try to visit other places in Austria and Germany with him again.

Leanne WestonLondon, United Kingdom
Didi's tour was fantastic. We were amazed at his extensive knowledge and how passionate he was about his subjects. Didi literally talked from start to finish. We also appreciated that Didi was able to structure the tour to suit the poor weather conditions experienced on our tour. We all very much enjoyed the unscheduled stop at the Red Bull Museum when the weather was at its worst. The kids also enjoyed the Sound of Music aspect of the tour and visiting the various locations which featured in the movie.

Because I wanted to customize my tour, I chose Didi from the guides available on the website page for Salzburg, Austria. I couldn't have done better. Didi is everything and more that you would want from a guide. He was prompt, courteous, proactive, organized, a font of knowledge which he shared in a charming way, able to develop a keen sense of the people he was with, and on and on. If you want a genuine person who will fulfill your dreams and wishes, choose Didi. I'd give him ten stars if I could!

Dietmar was an incredibly accommodating guide. We threw a couple of curve balls at him and he handled them with aplomb. Even when there was a traffic accident on the auto barn which caused a delay getting home he threw in a visit to Red bull world to pass the time. Encyclopaedia of information in all the areas we visited

Linda M.United States
Didi is a wonderful guide! My family and I truly enjoyed our tour of Salzburg and the "Sound of Music" sights in the city and countryside. We learned so much from him -- he is extremely knowledgeable about local history, music and culture. The day was very well planned, allowing us to see so many sights and varied locations we could never have found on our own. He helped to make our visit to Salzburg very special -- this tour was one of the great highlights of our trip this summer.

I had an unforgettable tour of Salzburg! Didi's knowledge of the city's history, its people and its culture made the visit even more exciting. Of course we went to all the sites related to the "Sound of Music" but as we walked through he explained all the other landmarks. He also drove his minibus and we went to the hills of Salzburg as well as the lake towns outside of the city. He is nice and friendly and as he found out my interests he taylored the tour accordingly. Awesome tour and guide. Thanks!!!

Our afternoon with Dietmar was wonderful. He is extraordinarilý knowledgeable and is a wonderful storyteller. He made all aspects of Salzburg history and life interesting. He speaks English beautifully. We had six people from Canada, Zealand and the US. Everyone understood him perfectly. He has a terriffic sense of humor and was great fun with whom to spend an afternoon.

Didi is a very knowledgeable guide and is like a friend of ours at the end of the tour. He has shown us more than we have expected. He knows the places of interest so well and we were impressed by the way he planned the tour for us and at the end of the tour we know that we will come back someday to revisit Salzburg after this wonderful experience.

He was just the guy we needed. We got everything we wanted and then some. We had a car service bring us their and he dropped us right off too him and gave him directions to a church we wanted to see. Could not have had a better day.
Didi was an excellent tour guide - very knowledgeable and helpful. We only had one day free for skiing and he made sure we got the most out of it - brought us to the best ski resort and arranged the instructor etc. for us. Would highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Carol! Thanks very much for the comments! Best regards from Salzburg Didi
Didi was excellent and very knowledgeable - started telling us about Salzburg and it's environs from the moment we left the hotel and then took us on a beautifully scenic route to Berchtesgaden. He even managed to fit in a trip to see Hangar 7 on the way back. Would highly recommend him as a tour guide - great comfortable and easy way to see Salzburg and it's surroundings.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Carol! thanks very much for the comment. Hope to see you again. In Salzburg or maybe in Brazil. Best regards Didi

Didi was a pleasant and very knowledgeable tour guide. He picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel in Munich which made it very convenient for us. The only thing that I would have done differently is more communication up front about what we wanted. My family wasn't in to the history of churches, etc. and would have liked to spend some family time walking through Old Salzburg, picking our own restaurant and a doing bit of shopping.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Cathy! Thanks for the comment and happy Eastern! Best regards, Didi N. Local guide in Salzburg

Our day with Didi was better than we even dreamed. We went to Berchtesgarden, the Konigsee, and toured a salt mine. He knew the answers to all of questions and gave us so much information.

Didi was the absolute best! Wow, he really knows his history and his beautiful city of Salzburg. Loved doing the Sound of Music tour with him. We also did the City tour of Salzburg. He was considerate enough to take us to the places we didn't see the day before due to rain. He knew about Vienna, Munich, the Romantic road, etc. He was nice enough to work and help us on some of our other city visits. Didi, you were great! Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lourdes! Thanks very much for the comments. Hope to meet you again in Salzburg. Best regards, Didi N. Local Guide in Salzburg

My 17 yo niece/nephew and I spent a day with Didi and it was great. When reserving I requested a change in venues from the listed tour and Didi was very accomodating. We visited the ice caves,alpine slide and salt mines. Whilst driving to the various places Didi was a wealth of knowledge on the area and went out of his way to show us highlights we may have missed. Truly it was a very pleasant day.To cap it off he very graciously offered to take us to the train the next day. A true gentleman! Danke Didi!
Didi arrived on time and took us on the trail of the Sound of Music film. Our tour was greatly enhanced very his knoweledge information. His van even got WIFI which was very handy. My fellow companions were so impressed with Didi that they are planning to utilise his services on their next European trip. I have booked him for 2 trips but unfortunately he can't make it the following day and sent someone else instead.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We glad that you had a good experience. We've asked Didi to clarify whether this substitution was agreed to in advance. According to ToursByLocals policy, unauthorized substitution is not permitted.

Didi was a great guide! Very informative and knowledgable of the area and history and chose the hidden gems to showcase places the "locals" go, versus the toursists. I highly recommend Didi to show you around if you have a few hours, or a few days in Salzburg.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jennifer! Thanks very much for your comment. Hope to see you again in Salzburg. Best regards, Didi Niederkofler Local Guide in Salzburg
Didi was fantastic - his English was perfect and his projection excellent, so that everyone could hear his extensive and interesting knowledge of Salzburg. The tour was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Thanks.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Rowena! Thanks very much for the comment. Hope to see you again in Salzburg! Best Regards, Didi Niederkofler Local Guide in Salzburg

Ursula was excellent. Pleasant, very knowledgeable and energetic. American family with teens. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dr. Scott! Thanks very much for the comment. I will pass it forward to my colleague Ursula. Best regards from Salzburg, Didi
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Didi substituted Ursula due to an unexpected personal issue. We've reminded him to inform the customer prior to the tour if this happens again in the future.

This guy was just GREAT, he picked us up in his mini van, took us places we never would have been able to walk to or take public transportation. Personality PLUS!!!!..Wish we could have brought him with us to the other cities. Very professional and knowledgeable. Very nice combination of walking and riding.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the nice comment! Hope to see you again in Salzburg! Best regards, Didi
