The city tour was honestly a partial waste of time, as we spent all the time inside a minivan with the driver/tour guide. However, one hour would not have been enough to see everything he showed.
The BEST part of the tour, and what was totally worth doing, was the boat ride to the lakes and mountains and visit to St. Wolfgang. Absolutely breathtaking, seeing the alps, beautiful waters of the lakes, and seeing the little towns with colorful houses. We have a wonderful time.
Driver was great and customized the tour to our interests . The only criticism is that the breakfast was a very basic buffet and half the dishes were empty by the time we got there
beautiful scenery and boat ride. The tour guide put on Viennese waltzes while we were driving, which added to the atmosphere. Also, loved seeing the church at Mondsee, where the Sound of Music wedding took place. Great way to see the mountains and lakes near Salzburg!
Great tour, really enjoyed both the Salt mines and the Lakes. Salt mine slide was great fun!
Wonderful trip, Stunning mountain and Lake views and a new experience in Salt mines. Our Guide Walter was very very good and provided us a lot of information. A relaxing boat ride in Lake Wolfgang see. Thanks to Viator.
David was great. He took us to and explained all the sites. It was a memorable and great day! Thanks David for making it so complete. You enhanced our knowledge of the Sound of Music immensely!
Excellent commentary by a nice guide in both German and English--entertaining without being cheesy, and gave us a lot of interesting info about what we were seeing. Glad they pulled over for a photo op once, then organized a great ferry ride across Wolfgangsee and adequate time for some brief sightseeing in St. Wofgang before the bus ride back to Salzburg. Great experience all around!
Beautiful scenery on Austrian lakes and mountain tour. Tour guide was very professional and knowledgeable. Enjoyed the entire tour.
This tour is fantastic and we really enjoyed it. The two parts were completely different: the visit to the salt mine is very informative and relaxing at the same time while the tour of the lakes is a pure enjoyment for one's eye.

Disappointing tour. The City Tour is a pure bus tour, and there is practically no chance to get out of the bus to see the various sites. The second part -- the ferry tour is too long.
The bout tour is amaizing!
It rained a ittle ...but this has to be on the bucket list..
Best lakes u ever see
Beautiful scenery! Highlight seeing The White Horse Inn and the relaxing boat ride on Wolfgangsee.

This tour for our family was all that we expected it to be and more. Our tour guide, Peter, was amazing! He was friendly, professional, and knowledgable. He helped make our day a memorable one. The included breakfast at Schloss Leopoldskron was delicious. The private tour does cost more, but for a once-in-a-lifetime tour with our kids and their wives, this was most definitely the way to go. It's much better to see things up close and personal...not from across the lake, for example. We highly recommend this tour!!
The salt mines had some interesting moments but the highlight was speeding down the slides. The lakes tours was at an easy going pace with beautiful views.
Company very disorganized about putting guests on buses. They consistently tried to jam as many people on the same bus, even when they were on separate tours. The Salt Mines tour was worth seeing though.
It was a very well organized tour. The sights were out of this world. Made memories to last a lifetime. The best of Austria was covered in tihs tour. The lakes were spectacular as were the mountains. We passed beautiful sights and had a memorable tour. Thank you.
Comfortable coach, good local guide. Even with light rain the outing was fun. I only wish we had more time in the little town.
Travelled with a family group including three adult children. Convenient and we covered a lot of ground - a great treat for fans of the Sound of Music. Breakfast was ok. The tour was wonderful. Highly recommended.
This tour was amazing!
This tour was amazing!
Our tour guide Andreas was very pleasant providing detailed information during the salt mine tour. The slide at the salt mine was fantastic and the lake cruise relaxing and the scenery fantastic.
Very fun and beautiful trip! We had a great time touring both the Salt Mines and taking the boat trip on Lake Wolfgang! The weather was perfect and the views of the mountains from the lake were breathtaking.
The salt mine tour was very informative and surprisingly fun and a lazy boat trip, along a picturesque lake to a beautiful St Wolfgang for tea and cake, was a great way to end off a Sunday.
