Linz (Salzburg) Old Town Tour Excursion Reviews

Time permitting, if your river cruise docks in Linz, an excursion to Salzburg to explore Alstadt -- the city's Old Town and a UNESCO World Heritage site -- is in order. Consider a walking tour for the best views of the city's ornate churches.

Trolley tour was not 45 minutes about 12 minutes and like a kiddie ride.
Sail Date: April 2018
Trolley tour was not 45 minutes about 12 minutes and like a kiddie ride. My elderly companion fell and injured her neck. Another immobile passenger was stranded. We took them both back in a taxi. No medial help on the ship. A disaster.
