Tour: #39189, Bavarian Mountains and Salzburg with Lake District, Salzburg, Austria    
Date: Jun 30/17

We highy recommend Manfred if you want to see both the usual tourist sights and some out of the less touristy sights. We spent 2 full days sight seeing with him in and around Salzburg and had a wonderful time. He incorporated the Sound of Music tour with the lake region where we also took a short boat ride on a beautiful green lake. Next day went to Eagles Nest and the Bavarian Mts and Ramsau. Touring with Manfred is definitely 5 stars.

My wife and I and four kids ages 7-23 had great day with Manfred in his nice van. He knows the area well and tailored the tour to our interests.

Awesome opportunity to see such a beautiful area in such limited time. There is no way we could have accomplished a fraction of what we did without a guide. And not just any guide, Manfred! He listens to what you say, offers ideas, and points you in the right direction after his tour. The overview of the area is fabulous, and then combine the history, along with the ease of someone else guiding you instead of wasting time getting lost, or reading maps! We thought this was a great bang for the buck. Del

My toursbylocals experience was wonderful. Manfred did a marvelous job. He was knowledgeable, thoughtful, and enthusiastic. We spent the day together, with a very flexible plan. It turned out to be VERY full of excellent information, beautiful scenery and amazing history. We can't thank you enough for being there for us. We will be back! Tim and Mary N.

Manfred was a knowledgeable and flexible guide. The views of the mountains were spectacular. Even though it was a cloudy day we managed to see Hitler's Eagle's Nest thanks to his persistence. We explored a scenic canyon. A fine day of sight seeing...

Due to poor weather the tour had to be modified and Manfred's creativity was limited although the group (5 people) ultimately worked out a scheme on the fly to the satisfaction of most. M's local geography knowledge is excellent and his background in Bavarian and Salzbug history is very good. He has an unfortunate tendency to speak over his clients. On a positive note, he made a great effort to be helpful.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review. I'm really sorry that the Eagle's Nest got closed due to snow and that you had to wait almost 1 hour because one of your friends whom I had to pick up first from a different hotel, was almost 1 hour late, left the hotel with no comment at the desk. Please kindly allow me to note, that eating on my van is not allowed, which I’ve tried to tell your group in a friendly way. I really hope that you will give me the opportunity to serve you better in the future.

Although we saw a lot and really enjoyed the salt mines and eagles eye, there was not enough flexibility in the schedule and we felt rushed. It was nice to have someone get all of our tickets and get us to the head of the lines. Thanks manfred.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your open feedback. We've got 6 hours to see all the different sites, it is high season and with a view hundred people at the Salt Mines you get easy the feeling to get rushed, still we were in 15 minutes after arrival. No rush at the Eagle's Nest where you missed the bus. I hope you give me another chance in the future and we should plan on an hourly base than there is no rush at all.

We had used Manfred as our guide the day before on the Salzburg City Tour and had a great experience, so we employed him again to take us to the Eagle's Nest, through the mountains and into Berchtesgaden. This was by far the highlight of our trip. Manfred knows so much about the area and is so willing to go above and beyond what was expected that words fail to do justice. We saw things and went places others don't usually get to go to--it was truly awesome! Thank you Manfred!
