What You Can Expect
Continue past the Nonnberg Abbey and see the impressive Castle Leopoldskron, featured in The Sound of Music. After learning about the history of the palace from your guide, head back to Mirabell Square.
Here, hop aboard your coach and soak up the scenery on the way to the Lake District. See Fuschl Castle, once home to Austrian royalty and now a high-end hotel.
Visit the village of St Wolfgang and see the pilgrimage site of the parish church. Inside, check out Michael Pacher's famous Gothic altar. Afterward, sip on a beverage and relax at the White Horse Inn.
From there, glide across Lake Wolfgang on a boat ride to the village of St Gilgen (May to October only), the birthplace of Mozart's mother.
After exploring St Gilgen, hop back aboard your coach, passing Huttenstein Castle and Lake Mondsee. Your 5-hour tour will conclude with transportation back to Salzburg.
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.
The bout tour is amaizing!
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.
This tour was amazing!
Excellent tour our guides were brilliant. Saw so much more than you could ever do on your own.
The Austrian Lakes and Mountains tour was great! The City tour was Okay, although the guide flirted with one of the passengers
Really worth it
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.
Very nice afternoon. 1 hour in the city. About 4 hours visiting lakes and hills. Included 45 minutes boat ride.
