Very satisfied with Full-day Private Guide Tour (customized)

I have booked the private tour (8 hours) for my family (max 7 persons), which 5 persons are aged between 60-77 years old. They are very old and can not walk easily for a long distance. So the tour guide customized this trip for them and they were very impressed and satisfied with the kind , friendly and good service of the tour guide (from Local partner: MCM tours and travel Salzburg). I will recommend this Full-Day private tour to others :).

Best experience you can buy for money!! We had such an amazing day, this was so much more than what we expected. If you like to be outside in the nature and have a little adventure you have to try this. Also Wolfgang, our tour guide, was very nice and a fun guy, but most important, very professional and experienced so we never felt unsafe. We will come back for sure!!

Pick up very punctually, relaxed drive with interesting travel tips from Michael, great view on the mountain. The ice cave is fascinating and well worth seeing.
