    He’s only been doing the tours for a year, so our hotel didn’t know of him, but if you want to experience nature and see parts of the mountain that the tour buses don’t go to, go with Claudio’s Monkey Business Tours!!!

    I went on a cold and wet day; while it is presumingly less enjoyable to others, I strongly urge you not to cancel it. I believe that different weather brings different experiences-
    my hike felt mystic as I was constantly in clouds. I couldn’t see the view because it was blocked by the clouds. But a couple and I (who are in the group) decided to gamble and wait, and yes, we managed to have a glimpse of it and we started cheering!

    Guide
    Claudio is a really nice guy! He offered his own snacks, poncho, trekking poles, and heat warmer to hikers who need it; providing an excellent guest experiences. He was also friendly to others, greeting the bus drivers, giving way, and the locals seem to know him well too. Apart from his amicable personality, he is knowledgeable. He shared with us different genres: history, sounds of music, nature, local tips of Salzburg such as food and sites.

    I had a great time being in his tour. It is not a typical leisure tour, but an authentic, sensorial and active experience.
