Trudy Rollo – the Singing Tour Guide!

I was born and grew up in Norfolk, England.  My mother is English and my father Scottish, so I have a little Celtic blood! 
After studying French, German and Spanish (Italian came later!), I left the UK and set off to discover the world.  Due to my language skills and experience in customer service and tourism, I managed to find work in many different countries in various capacities, before finally landing in Austria in 2003.

I immediately fell in love - with Austria that is!  The sheer beauty of the landscape, the unspoilt countryside, the contrast of the lakes and mountains, intriguing cities – Austria, as the heart of Europe, has it all.  I couldn’t imagine leaving so I decided to make it my home.  And now I have far too many Austrian dresses to ever leave here again!

I have always worked in tourism in one way or another and have always enjoyed showing friends and family around the areas where I have previously lived.  Now, as a licensed Austria Guide, I would love to show you around the area I have decided to call home.  I always think that guests on my tour could be my Mum or Dad, brother, sister or best friend, so I always want them to see the best parts!

I would love to show you some of those places, both on and off the beaten track, and tell you some of the history and secrets of Salzburg. 

I also love to sing so I often burst into song whilst on tour!  Perhaps a little Mozart or possibly the Sound of Music!
I look forward to meeting you here in Salzburg, and to show you too my favourite places for the famous Austrian tradition of coffee and cake!
