Tom did a great job for us. He was extremely polished and professional, and also very knowledgeable and informative. We were able to learn a lot about Salzburg and the surrounding areas, and experienced much more than we could have on our own. Tom's English is exceptional, and he was great to work with. In my opinion, if you are considering a tour in or around Salzburg, you should definitely book it with Tom. You'll be glad you did!
This was our second tour with Thomas and it was a highlight. We had an insightful tour of Sound of Music highlights, and Salzburg in general. Then we went on to the absolutely beautiful Lakes district to see Hallstatt. Thomas showed us great photo spots and also made great food and drink recommendations. A special day to finish our time in Salzburg. Thanks Thomas - you are the best!
Thomas was one of the best tour guides we have ever had around the world. He was very efficient and responsive to our needs, communicated very well and good- humoured. We did two days with Thomas - the first to Berchtesgaden Eagles Nest ( he navigated us through crowd with ease!) and Salt Mine. Second day was tour of Salzburg and Hallstatt. We saw so much! Thanks Thomas!

Thomas was an excellent guide from start to finish. He kindly picked us up at our rental home, and gave us an informative and enjoyable tour. Thomas provided interesting information in a friendly and fun manner. He was very flexible and helpful in accommodating the varied wishes of five female travelers. He went out of his way to return an item that had been left behind in his van. We also enjoyed our lunch at an "off the tourist track" restaurant. Don't hesitate to take a tour with Thomas.

Thomas was so professional and knowledgable about the Sound of Music! His enthusiasm is contagious. We saw all the sites that were filmed in and around Salzburg and my traveling companion actually shed tears at the gazebo. We took a gorgeous drive to the Lake District which was a bonus surprise and we learned so much about Salzburg over the journey. If I could give Thomas 6 stars, I would. He did a fabulous job. I would say no one could do it better. Great job, Thomas!!
Kim ZinsmeyerUnited States
We had a wonderful tour! Thomas is very friendly & knowledgeable. Besides seeing all The Sound of Music locations he shared much history about Salzburg. He took us to the Lake District which was gorgeous!!! He was also kind enough to give us a few restaurant recommendations. We ate at all the places he told us about & they were delicious! Thank you again, Thomas!
Thomas ZabaskyUnited States
Thomas, our guide in Salzburg, was absolutely fabulous for the Sound of Music tour. He was definitely very knowledgeable about ALL the facets of the movie as well as the Von Trapp family the movie was based on. The weather was overcast and drizzling, but it didn't matter. He kept us moving and we did not miss one thing. He was such a gentleman. Would strongly recommend him to anyone wanting to take this tour!! (Am checking this off my bucket list!!!)
Bridget PhillipsUnited States
A wonderful guide, very knowledgeable about the history, geology & geography of the Salzburg/Hallstatt area. Thomas was flexible with what we wanted to do, arranging our tour so that he would be able to meet the time we needed to return. He even gave us a little side tour of the glacier, since the weather cleared up. Thanks so much, Thomas
Gail HoweUnited States
Thomas was superb! He is always a perfect host, dropping us at doorsteps, moving luggage, and turning the car around to get a good picture. His knowledge is amazing! But he didn't overwhelm us. He is fun to be with and is very flexible to accommodate weather changes. I will always seek Thomas out when visiting the Salzburg area. A perfect day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gail, Thank you very much for your beautiful words and the 5-star rating. I am very happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed this tour so much. I enjoyed it very much touring with you and I hope that some day you will come back to Salzburg and that we will meet again. I wish you and your family all the best. Best Regards Tom

Thomas is a down to earth and knowledgeable guide! He did a great tour and planned the day perfectly. We thoroughly enjoyed his company and his stories. He knew the places to go and when to see them in order to avoid lineups. When we come back to Austria, Thomas is our man!
Matt VishUnited States
Fantastic! This tour was amazing. Thomas is very personable and knowledgeable and pointed out things that we would have never known about. Our kids (ages 12 and 10) loved it as much as us. We have been on several private tours throughout Europe and the Sound of Music/Hallstatt tour ranks as #1. The memories made here will last a lifetime!! Thanks Thomas!!!!
Jean McGowanUnited States
Thomas thoughtfulness showed in every part of the trip. He knew where to park, where the picture was and how to explain things perfectly. We had many laughs and the food was spectacular.
Jean McGowanUnited States
Without a doubt well worth the time and his organization skills. He kept us moving and engaged. Willing to work around our schedule. Had great ideas and helped us make reservations. We had him two days and he was great at reminding us of what we talked about.

Laurence ShekerUnited States
We were very pleased with the full-day tour which Thomas gave use on October 9, 2017. He is very knowledgeable and made some adjustments in the travel plans to accommodate our special interests. Visiting Eagles Nest was very enlightening. Thomas pointed out things that most tour guides would probably overlook. And my wife walking down the aisle in the Basilica of St. Michael, just like Maria/Julie Andrews did, created a lasting memory.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Sheker, I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed the time we spent together during your anniversary trip to Salzburg. Thank you very much for the great review and I promise I will keep working on the 50 years. I wish you and your family all the best for the future. Best Wishes Thomas
What an amazing tour and what an amazing tour guide!! Thomas was a delight! He was personable, funny, passionate about what we toured and so knowledgable about the history, culture and creation of the Lake District. I learned so much! Once Thomas found out what I liked he made some changes to our itinerary so I could see some additional wonderful sights off the beaten path. I would without hesitation recommend Thomas. You will not be dissapointed and will not want to leave this beautiful area!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lisa, Thank you for your wonderful review. I am very happy to hear that you had a great time. Best Wishes Thomas
Thomas is an excellent guide - very personable, knowledgable, experienced, and a very good driver with a beautiful vehicle. It was a fabulous day for the 4 of us. The scenery is spectacular, the Alps and ice cave should not be missed, and the lakeside towns are beautiful and charming. Thomas provided a perfect balance of information and activities, and gave our group time on our own to enjoy the caves and lunch. He's very likeable, funny, smart and accommodating.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Glenn and Family, Thank you for your wonderful words. I am happy to hear that you had a great time here in Salzburg. I wish you all the best and happy travels. Best Wishes Thomas

Douglas GuthrieUnited States
A perfect day with Thomas! We had been to Salzburg, so we wanted to see the Eagles Nest and surrounding areas. Thomas showed us truly beautiful parts of Austria and Germany that we wouldn't have seen on our own. The Lake District and Hallstatt were just spectacular. Thomas shared both historical and contextual knowledge of the areas so we left feeling like we knew the places we visited. Thomas is quite personable so our day went by (too) quickly. Thanks again for a wonderful visit. We'll be back for more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Doug & Ron, Thank you for your wonderful review. I am very happy to hear that you had a great day. Best Wishes Tom
We cant thank enough to Thomas for an unforgetable day. Thomas is the perfect guide. Before our trip he helped us by email to select the better options. We are very happy that we decided to take this private tour with Thomas. We travell in a modest budget but never regret the decision to take this tour.We visited the lakes area up to Hallstatt and the salt mine and it was like a dream. We will never forget Thomas an the gorgeus day we spent with him!!! Thank you Thomas!!!!!!!!

Thomas provided a superb tour of the Salzburg area for my family and me. His extensive knowledge and experience were evident at each stop along the route. From the Christmas markets to Mozart and "The Sound of Music" Thomas' professionalism made for a great trip. Cordial to his guests and with a smiling attitude, Thomas made our stay in Salzburg memorable and rewarding. I highly recommend Thomas for tours of the Salzburg and surrounding region.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paul C, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. I am delighted to learn that you enjoyed my Sound of Music tour and that you had a wonderful time with me during Christmas holiday. Best wishes, Thomas
