Informative Trip
My wife and I enjoyed our trip. Markus was an excellent driver and guide. The museum and site were very sobering and helped to further educate us about some of the most terrible activities carried out by the Third Reich during WWII. Plan to spend plenty of time inside the museum itself- two hours inside and another one to two hours walking the grounds and looking in the other buildings. More

Very Informative
This trip was well worth the time and money. We had a great guide who shared very interesting stories both personal and historical about Vienna, the war, and The Mauthausen Concentration Camp. Visiting the camp itself was a very interesting experience. It was hard to digest all of the information about the horrors that occurred there but it is without a doubt worth visiting if you are going to be in Vienna. It’s such a huge part of history and those who endured that horrific place deserve to have there stories heard. We were at the camp for about 2 - 2 1/2 hours and there was no shortage of things to see/learn. I highly recommend this day trip. More

Good day trip
It takes a about 3 hours each way to get to Salzburg from Vienna. The trip there you will make a couple of stops in the lake region to see some amazing views. You get about 2 hours or so on your own in Salzburg after the tour which is led by a local guide not the driver. It was pretty cold the day we were there but still enjoyed the visit. More

excellent guide, this was the best trip of our holiday. Myself and my daughter thoroughly enjoyed it. The stories told by the guide in the mini bus were heart warming and his knowledge was first rate. I can’t recommend this enough! More

Totally recommend this trip! The driver and guide was very informative and went out of his way to make our experience special! The camp itself is very informative and sad but the audio guide was excellent and really helped you to understand. After the tour the guide took us for lunch near by in an Austrian restaurant which was lovely. Couldn’t recommend this tour enough! More

Humanity Cruelty at its Worst
The tour conducted by Flemming was extremely informative and unforgettable. He provided an excellent overview of the political turmoil of the time, as well as the dark history of the camp, and the systematic dehumanization of people. While it is a very difficult subject to confront, the tour was one of the most compelling and valuable lessons that one can and should experience. We highly recommend it. More

A part of history not to forget
We learned so much with our expert guide. She really took her time and shared deeply with us. A moving day. Be sure to leave enough time to return to visitor center and process the day's information. Beautiful views from atop the hill. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Ample parking. WC and small cafe available as well as modernized chapel for group prayer. More

Great day
Absolutely loved this tour. Our tour guide, Flemming, was an encyclopedia of history and Austria. He narrated our tour to Salzburg pointing out interesting places along the way. We stopped at several places along the way to allow us to see some sites. Salzburg was amazing and so was our local guide. Well worth spending a little extra to go with Vienna a la Carte. More

Private tour to Budapest
We had a great time on our private tour to Budapest. This was a family trip (all adults), it was the first time our father travelled to Europe and this tour did not disappoint. Our driver Markus was on time picking us up from our hotel. He was very friendly. The van was very comfortable (it even had iPads on the back of the seats), we have wifi service, Markus offered us water for the ride and pointed out interesting facts during our ride from Vienna to Budapest. When we arrived to Budapest we met up with Anita our Budapest tour guide. Anita, was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. The way she explained details was not only easy to understand but enjoyable. Both Markus and Anita showed personal interest about us and made our day great!. The tour was at a comfortable pace, it did not feel rush and you are practically driven all over the most important parts in Budapest. There is also time to explore the cites walking. At the end of Anita's guided tour there was plenty of time to have lunch and some shopping. We had a great time with Anita! On our drive back to Vienna, again Markus was very pleasant and once we got to our hotel in Vienna, he even offered to drive us somewhere in the city if we need it to. However, we were already kind of tired by this time :-) but it was very much appreciated. I usually don't have high expectations on anything I book because I would rather be pleasantly surprised than being disappointed, but in this case we all were pleasantly surprised with the way we were treated in a friendly and professional manner and that the tour was so interesting and we learned so much that we want to go back! Perhaps a day tour to Salzburg! :-) Thank you A la Carte for organizing tours like this and thank you to Markus and Anita for a great time!. More

Fabulous tour, terrible part of history
This tour was one of the highlights of my trip. Whilst I realise that sounds odd as it was a visit to a place that saw so much horror during the war, it was an incredible experience to see what occurred. On the way out to the camp, we were provided with an iPad and able to watch a 45 minute documentary about the camp and then events surrounding its history. Once there, the audio tour that was provided gave an incredible amount of detail. Whilst it is not the easiest tour to be on, it is certainly a place that people should visit and bear witness to what occurred here. Pierre was a great guide and provided a great guided tour as we left Vienna. Highly recommended!! More
