We upgraded this tour whist in Salzburg as we had covered city highlights in the Sound of Music tour.
We did the salt mines, eagles nest and a lake region where the name escapes me at the moment. This is an experience not to miss, again another amazing day in Salzburg!

It was very informative but could be longer. Price was abit steep for a short tour.

4 star rating: Recommended May 2013

This tour showed us a good overview of the city. While others have said the same thing, it is time for your company to act: referring to Mozart in the title is misleading and unnecessary. The tour of the Mozart Museum at the end is pretty lame as well. We really learned very little from the museum other than there are lots of paintings said to be of him that are not Mozart. In addition, the tour is short and easily could be 30 minutes longer with a few short stops added. Since it is in a small van it is difficult to see out and see taller buildings. Taking photos is impossible.
