Eine wunderschön geschmückte Stadt mit einem sehr schönen Christkindl-Markt! Toll hergerichtete Stände mit leckerem Essen (wir hatten drei verschiedene Kaiserschmarren probiert; der eine besser wie der andere!) und das i-Tüpfelchen war die Empfehlung unserer Stadtführung, „Genussprojekt“; in einem schicken Ambiente mit außergewöhnlich hübsch hergerichteten Essen, das noch dazu frisch und sehr lecker war! Diesen und noch weitere Tips haben wir unserer firmen Stadtführung, Frau Muhr, zu danken! Ganz lieben Dank für ein tolles Wochenende vor dem Lockdown! Grüsse aus München!

Wir hatten, trotz Corona Maßnahmen ,sehr viel Glück mit unseren Salzburgrundgang, tolles Wetter und eine erstklassigen Frau an unsere Seite @ Michaela Muhr. Frau Muhr war super nett, sie erklärte uns sehr interessant gestaltet die Geschichte von Salzburg, zeigte uns die Altstadt, Dom und Christkindlmarkt und erzählte die dazugehörige Geschichte, wusste auf unsere Fragen immer eine passende Antwort. Sie beachtete nie die Zeit, die sie natürlich durch unsere Fragen und Interessen überzogen hat . Wir waren richtig froh so eine erstklassige Reiseführerin bekommen zu haben. Einige Insider Typs waren auch dabei worüber wir uns sehr gefreut haben. Vielen Dank an Frau Muhr und wir kommen sicher wieder Die Mädels mit rosaroten Masken

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.
