Michael is a wonderful guide and driver, he has a great personality and is very knowledgeable of history and art. Great guide especially for the monuments and history of austria. With a sense of humor and friendly conversation, he showed us everything we wanted to see in one day. He knew where the best places were for us to lunch and shop and took an incredible care of my older husband. I'm very thankful to him. Irina Maleeva-Goller.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Irina, thank you very much. I am glad, that I was able to make this trip pleasureful for you. All the best for you, your husband and your Italian friends. Maybe another time, we never know... Yours, Michael

We had a very good time with Michael in Innsbruck. We got to see 2 churches and spend some time at the Christmas Market (which was our 2 main goals). He also made an effort to know where the wheelchair-accessible bathroom is (for my husband). Great weather also made it possible to take great pictures from different viewing areas he took us to. Thank you very much, Michael! :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Amy, thank you very much. I am glad that you enjoyed the day and my company. All the best for Buboy and yourself, yours, Michael
Heidi AmesUnited States
Michael was a lot of fun. The benefit of a private guide is not limiting yourself to a specific itinerary. Not only did we see a lot of the sights from the Sound of Music, but Michael showed us the best of the Salzburg Region. The scenery was breathtaking. We highly recommend Michael and would like to see more of the Region with him on another trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Heidi, thank you very much. Looking forward seeing you again. Leave Brunelleschi, bring the dogs! Greetings to Johnny, all the best, Your, Michael
Ben SpielmanBoynton Beach, FL, United States
Michael is a wonderful, extremely knowledgeable and delightful person. He was very kind and considerate of me during the full day tour as I was seeing, for the first time in my 64 years, where my father and his brothers barely lived, during a painful time in our history, between 1939 and 1945. He kept an extremely sharp eye out for my wellbeing and yet allowed me my space to reflect, pray and pay my respects to the family who either were lucky enough to survive and to those who perished.Highly recommended
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ben, thank you very much. I have to say it was an honor for me to guide you through the day with all emotions and feelings and so on. Have a safe trip, greetings to Jill and stay healthy till next time, you never know...
Lisa DillonUnited States
WOW! The closest experience of God and spirituality on this tour! Mike was AMAZING! We met as strangers, and left as friends! He truly is the BEST there is when it comes to providing a top notch experience! There were 4 of us, and each one of us, have left a piece of ourselves on the hills! Extraordinary experience of the beautiful city of Salzburg, the magic of The Sound of Music, and the company & knowledge provided throughout our journey, will always hold a special place in our heart! Thank you Mike!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lisa, sometimes even reviews leave you speechless and out of breath, thank you! I am glad you did like the tour, have safe trip, all the best and maybe another time... Michael

Paul StottsUnited States
Michael was incredible! He helped me arrange an unforgettable proposal to my now fiancee at the Mirabell Gardens, which I am so grateful for! He is very knowledgable about the Sound of Music, as well as the surrounding area. I can't recommend him enough, and I would strongly encourage choosing his guide over the buses if at all possible.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paul, it was a pleasure and honor, thank you. I wish you all the best and will be for sure for you in case you come back again! Please do not forget to send one of the fotos I made! Greetings to Emily, Michael

Michael drove us from Salzburg to Vienna. We are a family group of 7 people. We drove to Vienna and stopped for sight seeing in Melk and the Wachau. It was a beautiful day and we had a very enjoyable trip. Michael is a very experienced guide and is knowledgeable about history, culture and the scenery of the region. He is a safe driver and a professional guide. He is also a very warm and friendly man and took great care of my 80 year old mother throughout the tour. Thank you Michael!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jacqueline, thank you, anytime again; for yourself + smaller or bigger parts of the family and friends... Yours, Michael

Michael took my family, a group of seven people, from Vienna to Salzburg. We stopped in Hallstatt for sightseeing as well. Michael is a safe driver, very knowledgable about the geography, history and sites of the region. He is a professional guide, as well as very warm and friendly man. He took great care of my 80 year old mother, paying special attention to her comfort during the trip. We all enjoyed our tour with him and I will be contacting him next time I travel to Austria. Thank you Michael!!

Al JordanUnited States
Michael did an excellent job showing the area outside of Salzburg proper with a focus on Sound of Music locales. He has a very comfortable van that made the five hour excursion very enjoyable. He has a good knowledge of Salzburg history as well as a deep knowledge and love of the Sound of Music. Overall an excellent excursion.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It has been a pleasure meeting you. Have a safe trip further. Hope to see you again! Michael
James JohnsonUnited States
We had a group of 6 that went to tour Salzburg with Michael rather than taking a Viking Optional Excursion. We were very happy with his service and knowledge of the area, the food and the shopping. He has a engaging personallity and tailored the tour to our taste. The entire group was very happy with the experience. The van that he used was comfortable for 6.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear James, Thank you for your rating. I was happy to show you Salzburg and environment, still thank you for improving my english and am looking forward to welcoming parts or all of you when you are fed up with cruises or bring your grandchildren with you. There are still some subjects to be discussed further in detail according to local customs. Thanks again and have a safe trip further, Yours, Michael firstname.lastname@example.org

Michael adjusted our tour to accommodate very bad weather. He was informative, friendly, and helpful during our trip to and from Hallstatt. I would engage him again in a minute.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Donald, thank you for your honest response - yes, the weather was miserable. I am glad you still enjoyed our trip. Have a save trip further, whenever you are in the area, contact me. All the best, Yours, Michael
Douglas BachtelUnited States
We just did a private all day tour with Michael. Michael was professional, knowledgeable, and displayed a great sense of humor. Early on he communicated with us to find out what we wanted to see and do, offered suggestions, and had back up plans in case weather interfered. He picked us up at our hotel in a brand new Mercedes van. It snowed and rained off and on during our whole tour. Michael kept us engaged the whole time. We would definitely do another tour with him again. Douglas and Nancy
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Douglas and Nancy, Thank you very much for your honest reply - the weather was miserable. I am glad you still enjoyed the day. I would be happy of welcoming you again any time... Dankeschön
