I regret that there are no free walking tours available in Salzburg.

Although we enjoyed the tour, as the city is incredible and you can't help but be mesmerized, waiting for the guide to give the German version at every stop was exhausting and time consuming. We were on many other cities in Europe that offered free tours which we enjoyed much more. It seems the guides try much harder as they know what they will get pretty much depends on the kind of job they do. It would be worth considering this option in Salzburg.

Great tour

Really good knowledgeable guide. Easy walking pace. Very interesting. We were only in Salzburg for the day so we needed as much information about the town as possible and we got it.

good, very experienced and nice guide. but should use an speaker so everyone in the group can hear. we were around 20 ppl and she had a soft voice. though very nice.

Natasha was a fantastic guide. She gave us a real feel for the history of Salzburg a lots of details to explain why the history was what it was.
