Uma visita pelos principais pontos interessantes e no final a Casa de Mozart, sensacional o audiovisual nesse museu, em quase todas as línguas. Imperdível!

Excellent small minibus tour. Personal touch given and the tour guide went above and beyond the call of duty to provide accurate information.

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!

This was a great overview of Salzburg and would like to go back for more. We only had a few hours in Salzburg and am glad we picked this tour.

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

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.

Hotel pick-up was greatly appreciated. Combined German-English tour was a nice glimpse of the highlights of Salzburg. Mozart residence tour was done on our own at our own pace after the bus tour.

Salzburg is a great city, and this was the best way to see the most in the little time that I had there.

More like a city tour with a slight difference. We had a guide whose English was OK and had to concentrate hard. We struck this in a thunderstorm, so that put a dampener on it!

Since this was my family's first time in Salzburg, we decided to get an overview of the city and this tour was very helpful in providing us with lots of information for our short stay.

The only real traces of Mozart is as the end of the tour when you visit the museum.

Would suggest this tour instead of the paranomic city tour as includes everything from that tour plus this tour can go hellbrunn palace on top of that..

Yes I think it could have better, but I think this is due to the tour guide we had. We felt extremely rushed and felt more like a trapped audience for her jokes, than tourists on tour. At the end we felt as though we had been dumped because she was taking another tour. It was shorter than advertised

Very disappointing. Expected more about Mozart because of the mention of 'on the traces of Mozart'. Felt that the guide wanted to be done with the tour ASAP.

in my opinion, there was no more new things to see as we took this excursion on the last day, when we were already familiar with the city. this tour is ideal on the first day.

It would be better if it was a walking tour. The name is a bit misleading, since there is not much mention of Mozart in the city until the last stop at the museum house.

This tour isn't even worth one star. They group us with another couple who booked for a regular city tour not the one on the traces of Mozart. And they were German speaking. I'm sure they requested a tour in German language but they end up taking an English tour with us. There is nothing about the traces of Mozart except for the self tour of the Mozart Museum at the end. The tour is supposed to be 3.5 hours. We had about 50 minutes of regular city tour and the driver / guide dropped us at the Mozart Museum with an entrance ticket. Very very disappointed. Don't take this tour.

Guides English was very poor, and he kept switching back and forth to German. Very little of Mozart to trace in Salzburg. The house he lived in as an older boy has little beyond paintings that may or may not have been Mozart

Cheap and nasty!!! Would not recommend to anyone!! The only thing that was good was the punctuality which was definitely defined by the driver guide who was in such a hurry to finish the tour before it had started!! We were rushed from sight to sight. People sitting in the middle couldnt see a thing

I paid for a tour of salzburg on the traces of Mozart and the guide gave us only a tour of the gazebo and lake for the sound of music. When he took us back to the panorama tour office he handed us tickets to the mozart museum and told us to take a taxi to the musem the next day. We never got to go, still have the tickets. This tour was horrible. I think the guide just made stuff up as he drove around crazy. Not trustworthy, Shaddy and bad tour.
Don't spend your $$$ on this..
