We are a family of 5 (with 3 girls ages 11,11 & 9) and all of us really enjoyed the tour with Michaela. Our group was really fun and it provided us with so much valuable information. Michaela was so good with our girls, and even made it fun for them, She was always careful to include the girls in all the conversations. Besides, Salzburg is really magicak during Christmas.
