A Recent Review of this tour

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!
