We were met at our hotel by our driver Flemming. He was punctual, friendly and extremely knowledgable. We had a very comfortable van that was supplied with bottled water for the three hour drive to Salzburg. Our driver told us so much about Austrian history and kept us spell-bound the whole way to Salzburg. He drove us through the beautiful lake district and we stopped to take breath-taking pictures. We stopped for a short ice-cream break in St. Gilgen a pretty little village that just happened to be the hometown of Mozarts mother. It was a gorgeous town by the water. Once in Salzburg we were met by our guide who took us by foot and showed us all the highlights of Salzburg. She was very interesting and knowledgable. We saw many places that were central in "The Sound of Music" movie. We also saw Mozarts childhood home which is now a museum. We walked around the town and went up to the Salzburg Fortress. The views were awesome! We stopped at a local restaurant and ate lunch. After a great day in Salzburg we met back up with our driver Flemming for the ride back to our hotel in Vienna. He had many more things to tells us about the history of Austria. We were very pleased with our trip and highly recommend it to everyone! More

Private Walking Tour of Vienna
Scheduled an afternoon walking tour of Vienna with Vienna a la Carte. My husband and I were traveling with our 17-year old daughter and her best friend. Our guide, Brenda, met us at our hotel and walked us through the Hofburg and we ended at St. Stephen's Church. Brenda was a delight. She was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining and if we are back to Vienna we will surely request her for another tour. More

Brenda is great!
We spent 2.5 hours with Brenda on a walking tour of the ring area of Vienna. She was witty, insightful and engaging. Well worth it! More

A Great Day Trip
We had a great time on our day trip to Salzburg. Travel there and back was very convenient and comfortable. It was nice seeing the lakes on the way, and our tour through Salzburg was nice and informative. We had plenty of free time to get lunch on our own and check out the attractions that interested us the most. I would highly recommend it. More

Awesome 👏 Experience
Did the tour to Salzburg today with Ton , he’s an awesome guy that’s knowledgeable and a professional in what he does , I thoroughly enjoyed my day with the live commentary from Ton for kept us interested throughout the journey , quite frankly you don’t feel the 3hrs of the journey with stops for the bathrooms every so now and then . This was the highlight of my trip to Vienna and without a doubt this was made possible with Ton , I would most definately use the service of this company again and would use Ton . A visit to Vienna would be incomplete without a trip to Salzburg . More

Well worth it
Flemming was our driver for the day and it could have not been a better experience. His knowledge of the history of this camp and that era in general is wonderful. I will say I was initially concerned about the length of time we would have at the camp, 2.5-3 hours total. I spent almost 8 hours at Auschwitz and expected to be disappointed to not have more time at Matthausen. I'm glad to say my concern was unwarranted. The design of this museum/camp is exceptional. You have an audio guide which I was uncertain about (having used them elsewhere and found them lacking). This one is exceptional. The route they have you take is also extremely efficient time-wise. I was initially disappointed that there wasn't a lot of written material in the areas you visit - until I reached the museum building (which is where the crematorium was located). It is FULL of information and exhibits. I especially enjoyed the video and audio commentaries - they are short but very effective - all told by prisoners who survived their experiences here. There was plenty I didn't read (it gets overwhelming eventually) but I don't feel like I missed out on anything. I spent just short of three hours there and am very satisfied my experience (which seems like a strange thing to say about a visit to a concentration camp). After leaving the camp Flemming drove us to the quarry. You can no longer walk down (or up) the 168 steps so I'm glad a drive to the quarry was included. Out of the 5 camps I visited on this trip - Dachau, Buchenwald, Sachsenhausen, Auschwitz and Mathausen - Mathausen was without a doubt the most emotionally difficult for me. They are all horrible but I felt like Mathausen exuded evil from the moment you first saw it. This may be because I knew less about Mathausen than Auschwitz though. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to visit this site and grateful to Flemming for his great insight and information. More

Just do it !
What a great day, our main guide Fleming set the tone early on with a friendly warm welcome on arrival at the meeting point. The bus itself is an 8 seater with iPads and Bose headphones for your use, particularly handy for the journey back. Fleming provided us with a vast amount of interesting information throughout the day all delivered in perfect English. The day was perfectly organised yet Fleming had a great relaxed manner that really enhanced the trip. The stops at Lake Atta and the beautiful village of St Gilgen were well worth the detour en route to Salzburg. On arrival at Salzburg we were met by Antonio who provided lots of great info and recommendations for eating/drinking. Salzburg itself is a wonderful city with a perfect old town great for a meandering stroll around and particularly interesting if you like ‘The Sound of Music’. I can’t recommend this trip highly enough, the organisation, the stops, the views, the guides, a perfect day. One of the highlights of our trip to Austria. Just do it. More

A great way to see Vienna with limited time.
I had one day in Vienna after a business trip. I had no time to research what I wanted to see/do while there, so decided to have the private tour. It was perfect. My guide Dieter had a plan for the 4 hours and adapted it on the fly to accommodate my interests, the available timeframe *and* to avoid a demonstration that clogged up the streets of Vienna without impacting my day. It was a real treat and a heavenly way to see the city. Having a car and driver and a guide was super efficient, letting me accomplish much more than I could have otherwise. For one person, it was a bit pricy, but honestly I would do it again in the same situation. More

Marcus was a very safe and considerate driver. He also gave us a guided tour of the old town area in Salzburg. The tour is not value for money. It is expensive and a long drive from Vienna More

Day trip from Vienna.
A deeply moving experience of a terrible example of man's inhumanity to man. The balance of the tour and the guide, Fleming, were excellent. There was sufficient time for private reflection, and the audio guide and map supplied were most helpful. More
