Roman was a fun and very knowledgeable tour guide for the four of us. He knew so much about the city of Salzburg and clearly loved his city. We were confused when we met him in Mozartplatz since there was a large gathering there of athletes but he explained that it was a marathon, with Red Bull as a sponsor. We loved the anecdotes about the city, the Mirabell palace, the stories of the Archbishop and the chocolate tasting too. It was all great and Roman is a very personable character!

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you Deanna for 5 thumbs :-) You picked the best time to see the Eagles Nest and Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse. You are great guests! Anytime again :-)

Roman was a fantastic tour guide for our group.! He was friendly from the start, knew EVERYTHING about Salzburg and the Sound of Music, and made us feel very comfortable the entire time we were with him. We even sang songs from the movie! I would recommend him to anyone who wants a private tour of the area. We had five people on the tour, ages 15, 18, 50, 80, and 82 - and we all had a great time! Thank you Roman!

Roman was awesome - just what we wanted! He brought us through Salzburg and was able to wish us around on foot and in his van to show us a combo of history and Sound of Music. He style was easy going and flexible with wide age range of our group -- 7 yrs old to 73! We highly recommend him!!

5 stars Jayne L. 24 Jul 2014

Roman was wonderful- kind, considerate, perceptive and extremely knowledgable about Salzburg. As a single traveler I felt well cared for and that he had my best interest at heart. I would highly recommend Roman to anyone wanting an energized personal tour of Salzburg and the surrounding country/mountain side.

This was definitely worth the money. Our guide Roman was awesome!!! Couldn't be more pleased. He listened to what we wanted to do and tailored our trip to exactly what we wanted. Very knowledgeable and shared his love of the area with us. Spend the extra money and have Roman take you on your tours, you won't regret it!!!!!

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you for coming back to Salzburg again!

How lucky can one get booking a tour guide over the Internet. My daughter and I booked Roman Forisch for a day. Another guide we booked cancelled, so Roman was booked for another day. We surely lucked out, Roman was an exceptional guide, taking us where we wanted to go & to places off the beaten path that were wonderful. Roman is extremely knowledgeable about Europe & made our vacation both memorable and exciting. I would not hesitate to book Roman for another vacation. He is truly fabulous.

Roman was great, but he had driven a lot that day and had more driving to do after he left us. He seemed in a hurry to drop us off. We paid for 8 hours, but he was only with us for 7. He showed us lots of things, but it was really hard to hear him from the back seat of the van, so we missed a whole lot of the great information that he was sharing with us.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you for the feedback. Sorry to have given you the impression - but I love driving! We could have rearranged the seating in the car for better understanding. Some of the group were so tired, that they felt asleep! The tour was shortened by 30 mins, because you had a time limit for hotel check-in. Well, you saw the best of Austria! :-)
