Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

The drive to Salzburg alone is spectacular, passing lakes and mountains, and stopping to eat and snap photos, including at Lake Mondsee. In Salzburg, you must try Mozartkugel, a chocolate praline filled with nougat and pistachio marzipan. Make sure you get the original by F├╝rst and not an imitation!

Great day trip from Vienna. There were so many shops and places to see we thought the free time we were given wasn't enough. We also wished that we were given a city map so navigating the city would have been easier, especially we had to find our way back to the starting point on our own not an easy grid to follow without one. Overall we were glad that we took the trip.

A wonderful day. The guide was very knowledgeable, and she took time to answer everyone's question as they arose. She provided an excellent overview of the area and the city and its history. The pace was leisurely and allowed ample time to listen and enjoy.

Beautiful tour! We left at the scheduled time and stopped at a buffet restaurant along the way. The food there is very, very good, but not cheap. When we got back, we stopped at another buffet, where the food didn't look that appealing, so almost nobody ate...
The guide was very good, he explained a lot of things during the trip. He would always explain in German first, then English , although there were only 2 people speaking German on the bus. In Salzburg we had only a 2 hours to explore on our own so we went to the castle with the funicular, then explored the city a little bit. There is a lot to see, however there isn't enough time.
The trip took the entire day, almost 10 hours. We listened to soundtracks from the musical The sound of music on our way back.
The good thing about this tour is that they pick you up from your hotel and drop you off too, at no charge.
