Manfred is a very knowledgeable guide. After telling him about our interests, he was able to quickly customize a plan for the day that accomplished what we wanted to see. He also suggested some locations in the Lake District that we were not familiar with but ending up enjoying immensely. It started raining but he was able to adapt to the situation and re-arrange the order of indoor/outdoor events so that we still enjoyed seeing all the sights we wanted to see despite the weather.

Manfred was a great tour guide. We only had 6 hours in town and he was able to customize a tour for our time frame and still hit all the highlights. We wouldnt have been able to see both Salzburg and Hallstratt without him! Friendly and informative, highly recommend!

Manfred's enthusiasm and understanding of all things Salzburg was really terrific. Especially enjoyed our trip up the mountainsides for spectacular views of the city and area. This is what sets Tours by Locals apart - you see the city from a personal point of view. When we return, we will skip the Sound of Music sites in preference to exploring the fortress, old city sites and more time on mountainside - perhaps even hiking. Manfred will certainly be our guide.

Manfred was excellent. My husband had cellulitis of his leg and was unable to walk. Manfred adjusted his tour to accommodate this.we had a lovely time and learnt a lot about Salzburg and especially enjoyed visiting parts of Salzburg that were frequented by locals not tourists .

Manfred is professional, caring, and delightful. We wanted to 'visit' sites in Salzburg, excluding the Sound of Music and Salt Mines. Manfred drove us around showing us where sites of interest were, but did not tour them. This disappointment is from miscommunication. He drove us up a clear mountain and I got a great pictures of Eagles Nest. Suddenly hail and snow hit, thanks to the 'Iceman' unexpected weather late in May. Maybe he thought an 'overview' was better than visiting sites as it was so cold.

I regret to say that our tour with Manfred was more than disappointing. There was little structure to what we saw and it never really tied together. We did see the key sights but the info was hard to follow. His accent made it hard at times to decipher what he was telling us. I cannot recommend this tour guide at this time.

Manfred was very nice person, very friendly, and his english was very clear, and was patient with us when we asked many cultural type personnel questions about religion and politics.
As per our Passenger Mrs Kunda Vijayakar x 5 the tour was very good. Manfred showed us all the places very well giving complete information.

Manfred is an outstanding tour guide! He picked us up at our hotel (located 20 kilometers from Salzburg) in a very roomy, comfortable van. He is very knowledgeable about Salzburg and the area and got us to the best places quickly and efficiently. He gave us an overview of the sights and locations we should be seeing and steered us away from the tourist crowds. Manfred speaks great English, has a great sense of humor and makes the experience well worth the time and money.

Manfred was a pleasure to work with and a very good tour guide in the town of Salzburg, Austria. We had a four hour window which he filled for us with exactly what we asked for. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a professional guide in Salzburg to consider using Manfred.
