    Our guide was super informative and knowledgeable. He was pleasant to be with and got us to the front of the lines and gave us hints in where to sit or stand to see things better at each location. He even convinced us to pretend we were Julie Andrews at the Sound of Music hilltop. He even had the music to play for the video of us that he took! It was one of the most memorable days from our 2.5 week trip in all of Europe. I would highly recommend doing this!

    Our tour guide, Carlos, was phenomenal! He knew his stuff well and got us to the front of the lines as well as giving us hints as where to sit, stand to see amazing sights. He was enjoyable to spend the day with. I would request him if you can! We didn’t plan on the Sound of Music stop but thoroughly enjoyed it! He even convinced my daughter and I to re-inact the scene with Julia Andrews. We fought him but caved and will cherish it for a lifetime.
