The tour basically is just a shuttle bus to and from the site, not a tour. Tour guides provide little useful information.
Also, the pickup spot says "across from the train station". There is lot of construction and they actually pick you up outside the train station, if you don't figure that out you'll miss the tour (buses are not marked) get there early!
Palace is worth seeing and the lake is beautiful. Overall the price to the tour is about 50% more than it is worth, plus you have to pay an extra 18 Euros for the boat and entrance fees.
The tour guide was bad, and contributed to a chaotic tour! She had lots of difficulty getting the people on and off the bus, this was a problem with the guide and the people not paying attention. Process of keeping the group together was terrible. If you can go to the palace on your own it would be just as good. Guide just acted to point you in the right direction, and she did that very poorly, Guides drop you off, but do not go through the tours with you.
If you are clueless, don't know how to read a watch and can't remember to be back to the meeting points within 10 minutes of the time the guide provides, be ready to rent a cab for your trip back to your hotel. We almost 3 people on the boat trips to the 3 islands.
Fantastic Guides, very knowledgeable and kept the tours light-hearted! Tour was great fun and informative. Salt mine was worth seeing. Sound of music was fun in beautiful surroundings.
If you are clueless, don't know how to read a watch and can't remember to be back to the bus within 10 to 15 minutes of the time the guide provides, be ready to rent a cab for your trip back to your hotel. We lost 1 couple at the Salt mines and 1 couple at the Sound of Music.
