My wife and I just returned home from Salzburg , where we used this guidebook extensively . One of the most finely researched books on Salzburg, I can definitely say that the book saved me a lot of money and i could judiciously use my limited time to visit sight- seeing places. The books beautifully covers Salzburg and the Sound Of Music Tour. The book also leads you for some great day trips outside Salzburg -Werfen ( Ice Caves) , Salt Mines and also links you to the Author's book on another masterpiece 'Berchesgarden '. This book is a must have. I was just wondering as to why one needs to take a costly tour when all one need to do is to buy this wonderfully researched book .I promise u that u will return home knowledgable and with saved dollars in your pocket. Go ahead. Pick up a copy .

I strongly recommend this guide for anyone visiting the Salzburg area, regardless of whether they are interested in The Sound of Music (SOM) or not. I've just come back from 4 days there and found it highly useful, and I wasn't interested in SOM! Mr Harriman has been a guide for many years and knows all the practical info you need. He writes in a casual and entertaining style. I found his walking tour of the central city to be highly useful on my first day for giving me a good overview. I then visited individual sights in the following days. I found all the info regarding buses, costs and hours to be accurate. There are no colour pictures and the maps are basic but neither of those matter because there are plenty of free maps in the city and I took my own photos!

The book is deceptive - at first sight it appeared a little 'lacking in authority' compared to other guide books we've used. Don't be fooled! We used the book the entire weekend - the Salzburg walking tour was fabulous, and all the practical details like entry times, costs etc were bang up to date, and the directions were spot on. Lots of items of interest all the way round and little snippets that made us feel like we had the inside track. We used the Sound of Music tour also - brilliant, really brought it to life!
The rest of our holiday was spent in the Salzburg Lake District and the guide notes to towns we visited were excellent, especially the section on Hallstatt, which we followed almost to the letter and saw everything.

Clearly written with good tips on how to get the best out of Salzburg. We did all the walking tour for SOM and found it accurate, amusing & interesting. I was able to hand it over to my daughter & she showed the way!

My daughter is visiting Salzburg in July and I have spent ages researching guide books and travel articles. This is undoubtedly the best and most up to date book on the market and full of insider tips and suggestions for a great stay.

I like the guy's approach.
It sets you up for self guided tours better than I've seen before.
That's pretty much all it does. No gloss, no "other information", but entertaining & easy to use when you're there

Great to have a travel guide written by someone with a wealth of knowledge about Salzburg. Everything was correct including buses and timings. Couldn't have asked for more.
