What people are saying about Salzburg

Such a great experience! Highly recommend this trip for anyone wanting to raft. It was my first time and it went really good. Our guide, Luke, was great and funny. 10/10!

Steffi gave us plenty of activities on route. Taking us out of our comfort zone at times. Testing our mettle and strength of character whilst being fun at all times.

Very great experience even if there is no snow : it is always a good time to go to the mountains and see the majesty of the Tyrol

The activity was quite good and the stops and hotels where they stop for the break had good options even for vegetarian people.

I did the tour with my 13 year old son. We had a lot of fun. Our guide was great too! We'd love to be there again!
