Rupert Riedl of Marias Bicycle Tour was born and grew up in Salzburg. While working at the hostel in Salzburg, he booked and recommended a lot of bus tours for people with the tour companies, but he saw that some people weren’t totally satisfied with this impersonal and commercial way of seeing the city. He left his job at the Youth Hostel and he started Fräulein Maria’s Bicycle Tours, with his Scottish wife. They started with just ten bikes until they had to buy more! He’d had the chance to show thousands of tourists around the beautiful city and sing along with them in the footsteps of Fräulein Maria. They have a mix of native English speakers and original Salzburgers in the team, and this combination might be one part of their success.
