Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and upbeat. She sparkled with her enthusiasm for the city. She has very clear pronunciation and could very easily be understood. But the main reason for the rating, there was sufficient time to actually see some museums and other sites that I came to Salzburg for. The lake area was very nice, but if so much of what is pointed out is dealing with the film “The Sound of Music” then ride by the church so we see a very clear view of it, maybe even take 20 minutes to go inside. But I loved the trip and would recommend it highly to friends.
