Continue with a 25-minute boat ride across Lake Wolfgang (April to October only) to St Gilgen, where Mozart's mother was born.

The guide was very friendly and informative. The experience itself was breathtaking. We could not have asked for better weather it just enhanced the picturesque views and relaxing boat ride. A wonderful way to spend a day out of Salzburg immersed in the beautiful Austrian countryside!
The scenery was truly spectacular, the tour guide Carlos was excellent and informative. Unfortunately the thing that spoilt this trip was some of the fellow travelers. We were told to arrive at 1-45 for a 2 o'clock start and some people didn't turn up until 2-15 which was very bad mannered. Then there was the young lady on the coach who pushed other travellers aside as she had to have the best view for taking photos and was then 25 minutes late getting back to the coach without any apology. I'm not sure what coach companies can do in these circumstances but she spoilt our day
This tour was very nice despite the rain. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Enjoyed this trip out to the lakes. It was a gentle pace, suitable for my 84 year old mother. It was a wonderfully sunny and warm day which meant we could appreciate the scenery more. It had been cloudy when we arrived and so we wouldn't have seen much if we had gone on that day. The guide was knowledgeable and the commentary informative. The only downside was that it followed the same route taken by the Sound of Music tour for half the journey.
This tour is beautiful. It snowed the entire tour. It was beautiful. No mountain peaks today and the lakes could not be seen from a distance. I didn and #39;t take this tour this way. The Sound of Music and this tour over lap. Panarama Tour was kind enough to transfer my tour to Bavarian Alps and Salt Mine.
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 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!
Beautiful scenery! Highlight seeing The White Horse Inn and the relaxing boat ride on Wolfgangsee.
It rained a ittle ...but this has to be on the bucket list..
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.
