Our Mission

We want to become the leader in Salzburg and Austria of tailor made tours. We focus on our guests and create our tours as individually as our guests and offer to them only the best service and the best tour for their experience.

Our History

In the year 1915 a company called “La Donna Felice” was established in Milan, Italy to make the best hats and style for the happiest women. In later years it turned into fashion for ladies and in the year 2014 the company name and logo was sold to Bernhard Praher-Schneck in Salzburg Austria to continue in the same manner to create tours for the happiest guests coming to Salzburg.

We are a team of professional guides with passion to show you around and to make your vacation memorable and happy for you.

Bernhard Praher-Schneck

Bernhard Praher-Schneck

Founder and Owner of the company Be Special Tours Salzburg He made his first experience in the touring industry already as a young student back in the year 1999. Even after the studies in Italy he still did not leave the tourism industry and enjoyed it so much to become a local guide in Italy. After getting to know his future wife in Salzburg he decided to come back to Salzburg and creating a company that focus on the guests and not on the quantity of the guests but on the quality to offer the best tour for guests that enjoy this area as much as he does.

The idea has always been to focus on the people and to make the best for the people and therefore create tours for people as individually as possible to be just tailored.
