Panoramic Salzburg City Tour plus Austrian Lakes and Mountains Sightseeing Tour

Salzburg, Austria

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was very good value. The Salzburg City tour was done in a minivan so there were only 4 of us. Charlotte our guide was excellent. Parts of the tour were the same as the Sound of Music tour but that was not a problem.
The Lakes and Mountains was also very good. Not too rushed and outstanding natural beauty.

The Original Sound of Music Tour in Salzburg

Salzburg, Austria

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour is everything you hoped it would be. You need to have watched the film recently so that all the places visited make sense especially as not all the locations are what you think! Our guide Natasha was awesome. She was very funny and knowledgeable. The trip out to Mondsee was great. Lots of outstanding views to take photos of. Great value for the money.

Schonbrunn Palace Evening: Palace Tour, Dinner and Concert

Vienna, Austria

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was possibly the highlight of our 6 Viator trips. It the subway/metro in Vienna is very easy to negotiate so getting there was easy. The Palace and gardens are vast and you won't have time to see them all. The 40 room tour of the palace was very interesting but exhausting. Once you have seen one palace room you have seen them all!!! The gardens are relatively simple but great to walk about in.
We did the tour, evening dinner and concert combined. The evening dinner was very good and the chef/waiters managed to provide an excellent non dairy meal.
The highlight however has to be the concert with dances and singers. This variety of performances in teh Orangerie as the sun went down outside was spectacular. This trip is not to be missed.

This was a great way to get to know Vienna in a short time. Rushed because the guide's love of the city to show and tell us about everything. Would have been nice to sit at a cafe for 20 minutes during the 2 1/2 hour tour. Good value.

Danube Bend Day Trip from Budapest

Budapest, Hungary

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This is a long trip. The first part is by bus and takes you out about 30 kms outside of Budapest and is very relaxing. In fact the whole trip is. Lunch is taken high up in hills with a spectacular view over the Danube and is OK. Spending about an hour in the village where we caught the boat back was very interesting. Great local crafts at reasonable prices.
The boat part is about a 40 minute cruise along the Danube back into Budapest which really only gets interesting when you get back into Budapest and see the magnificent buildings from the river.

My Review

Once we found out that the pick up place was actually in the InterContinenetal Hotel, this was a great trip by bus and walking. Budapest is our favourite city and we certainly got a short but excellent introduction to the city. The trip was not rushed and you had time to enjoy the buidlings and scenery. The tour guide was outstanding and eager to tell us about Budapest..
