We spent a day with Marcus touring Eagle's Nest, Berchtesgaden and surrounding area. We found him to be extremely knowledgeable, personable and flexible with what we wanted to accomplish for the day. His command of English was great and he kept us engaged throughout the tour with interesting facts about Austria and Germany. I would wholeheartedly recommend Marcus. Our day with him was a highlight of our trip. Thanks, Marcus!

Date: Aug 22/18

Marcus drove almost 3 hours to meet our Viking ship that changed cities and lead us on a fabulous tour for the day in Salzburg. Although we had little time, we experienced a lot of its history and beauty with our charming and informed guide. We highly recommend this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Audrey, thank you very much for your wonderful comments and your 5-star rating, I really appreciate it !! I am very glad that you and your party have enjoyed the tour so much in spite of these very long transfers from Straubing to Salzburg and back.

Tour: #217429, Ice Caves & Fortress of Hohenwerfen & Golling waterfalls - private tour, Salzburg, Austria    view tour
Date: Aug 10/18

This was our second fantastic tour with Marcus. We went off exploring nature and he took us to see amazing waterfalls of Golling, and made sure we arrived in perfect time to see a falconry show at Hohenwerfen Fortress. As if the day could not have gotten better we then went up to the ice caves. Marcus was such an amazing guide, not only did he provide us with answers to all our questions but he even hiked right a long with us ( no simple feat) with (2) 20 minute uphill climbs. Nothing short of amazing.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for these wonderful comments and the 5-star ratings for both tours, I really appreciate it!!! I think we had a great time together and I truly enjoyed it touring with you and showing you the Lakes District and all the Sound of Music sights on day 1 and the natural wonders of Salzburg on day 2. I am very glad that you have enjoyed both tours so much and I really do hope that some day you will come back to Salzburg and that we will meet again. Wishing you all the best, Marcus

Date: Aug 8/18

Marcus has the perfect combination of being informative yet conversational. My husband and I really enjoyed this day trip from Salzburg, first being able to explore all the Sound of Music important stops and then heading out to beautiful St Gilgen and Hallstatt. Lunch directly on the water in Hallstaat was simply fantastic and he even helped to ensure we were able to rent one of the electric boats to spend some time exploring the area. Simply put he is spectacular....

Tour: The great Do-re-mi private tour from Passau, Passau, Bayern, Germany
Date: Jul 11/18

Marcus went above and beyond for the Salzburg DoReMi tour. First our cruise was supposed to be in Passau, but we were instead in Straubing, and he adjusted the tour for our change (taking extra time to pick us up and take us back). The tour itself was excellent, he is so knowledgeable and made it really fun. This was definitely a highlight of our entire Danube cruise.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Karen, thank you very much for your wonderful review and your 5-star rating, I really appreciate it!!! It was a pleasure taking you and Marcie on this particular tour to the Lakes District and Salzburg City. I am glad that you have enjoyed this tour so much in spite of these long transfers from and back to your your ship in Straubing. I do hope that some day you will come back to Salzburg and that we will meet again. Wishing you and Marcie all the best, I remain with best regards, Marcus

Our party of five would highly recommend touring with Marcus. His knowledge, sense of humor, and easy going nature made our full day tours with him one of the most enjoyable parts of our vacation. We had terrible weather for this tour, but because of Marcus we hardly noticed it. We learned so much and Marcus adapted to us. Five stars, book with Marcus!

Marcus spoke English fluently. He knew the many details of the Sound of Music. Not only did he show us the filming sights but he also gave us information and showed us sights about the real Von Trapp family. He also provided a lot of useful information for us to explore Salzburg on our own later. The information was more than you would read in a book or gather from a larger tour group but tidbits of interesting facts and places to revisit within the city. I highly recommend this tour with Marcus.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Eve, thank you very much for your wonderful review and your 5-star rating. I truly enjoyed it taking you and your family through Salzburg and the Lakes District and showing you the Sound of Music sights as well as the historical sights of Salzburg.

This was an outstanding tour in all regard. Marcus was extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter and explained it in an effortless manner in ways that made it so interesting. This was a long tour but he organized it in a very efficient manner with walking and driving. Anyone visiting Salzburg would be fortunate to have Marcus as their guide.

Marcus was wonderful. What a fantastic tour. He made us feel special and went out of his way to make sure we had a good time. Very patient, all that. Very knowledgeable about salt mines in Hallstatt and the lovely town itself. Pleasant ride there and back. We ran a little over on time. Fine with us and fine with Marcus. Our group of 3 could not have been more pleased. You will not be disappointed with Marcus.

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.

Marcus is the reason that finicky, eccentric people get private tour guides. Our group of 5 had 1 person who shouldn't be walking, another who shouldn't be walking much, 1 who got car sick, 1 who had been to Salzburg 4 times, 2 who had explored it on their own and 2 who had never been to Europe. He put together a special tour that satisfied all 5. And, 15 minutes into the tour when the 2 newbies announced a place they really wanted to go, he adjusted. Great, knowledgeable, and personable guide. THANKS.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ben, thank you very much for your 5-star rating and such wonderful comments. I really appreciate it. It was great having you and your family on this tour and it was a real pleasure for me taking you around and showing you all the interesting places in Salzburg.

Our group of five recently took a trip to Austria. The time we spent in Salzburg was the highlight of our trip, and that was due mostly to the excellent tour guide service we received from Marcus on the Do-Re-Mi and Hallstatt Tour. He was prompt in arrival at our hotel to pick us up. He transported our luggage in his spacious van all day and helped get our luggage to the platform to catch our train after a fantastic day. He did the little extras that count. We all highly recommend Marcus!

Marcus adjusted beautifully to our change in docking spot for our Viking River Cruise. He met us in his spotless van and took us to all the exterior filming sites from the Sound of Music! I had been to Salzburg three times previously but had never seen most of the places he showed us. He also reminded us of the scenes filmed at each spot. It was a full and wonderful day. I highly recommend Marcus.

Best Sound of music tour and lakes trip, our guide was Marcus was brilliant took us in our own private tour and enjoyed every part of the 4 1/2 hours. Made our stay so enjoyable and would reccommed this to any one visiting rather than big tour with others. It was tailored to us alone and even could change if we wanted to do slightly different things on the day depending on weather.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your great comment, I really appreciate it. It was a pleasure having you on tour and showing you all the interesting places in Berchtesgaden and the Lakes district. I definitely enjoyed your British humour as well.

This was a brilliant day out, went at our own pace with our tour guide, which we don't think could have been better. Marcus could not be more enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the sights the history and also for his passengers within the 5 person party we were in. He gave us free time in places and no time did we feel rushed. We took in the eagles nest, salt mines which we were fun and interactive, he took us to the Kings lake and we took in a 2 two hour boat trip, very relaxing. Well done Marcus
