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.

Sound of Music fantastic. Helen was fantastic. The next day we went on the City + mountain and lake tour which was going to overlap the SOM tour sites so our fantastic driver (unfortunately we didn't get his name) took us to other sites which were even better than the Sites from the previous tour.

The panoramic Salzburg tour and the Austrian Lakes and Mountains sighseeing tour were both fabulous. Could not see Eagles Nest because the road was narrow and dangerous to travel in the snow. Snow everywhere in December during my winter break as a teacher. I believe that a free beverage and slice of cake of your choice was included in this tour. The bus was huge and comfortable. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Teller machines were available when visiting one of the little towns. Great afternoon five hour trip.
