What To Expect

Begin your tour in the morning at the Munich Central Train Station, where you’ll meet your guide and board a train for the 2-hour scenic ride to Salzburg. As you ride, enjoy the marvel of the German rail system, renowned for immaculate service and equipment.
You’ll arrive in Salzburg by mid-morning, and your introduction begins with a 1.5-hour walking tour. With your city map in hand, follow your guide for a stroll through this UNESCO-listed city. Admire baroque-era architecture and visit castles, churches, monasteries, gorgeous piazzas and more. Ask questions and snap photos along the way.
After your guided tour, break off from the group for three hours of independent exploring. Plot your trip through the preserved medieval town, wandering along picturesque lanes to see sites like Domkirche Cathedral, the magnificent Festung Hohensalzburg, and Mirabell Garden and Palace, the setting for the classic ‘Do-Re-Mi’ scene from The Sound of Music (admission not included). You’ll have plenty of time to sightsee, souvenir shop and explore local boutiques and eateries.
At the end of your Salzburg  walking tour, head to the train station for the return ride to Munich. You’ll arrive back at the departure point in the evening.

The tour guide Tom was terrific. He provided a insightful talk on the train and a quick overview of he city during a one hour walking tour. He was courteous and had a great sense of humor. He made the experience quite enjoyable. Salzburg deserves a slightly longer visit though. Would recommend staying the night. But if you only have the day this tour is perfect.

Our guide was knowledgeable and gave recommendations. Group was appropriate in size and travel was seamless. Great tour and glad we had adequate free time for lunch and shopping the Christmas Market and other shops in Salzburg. Only recommendation would be to leave earlier from Munich to have more time in Salzburg.

Susan was our guide. Salzburg was beautiful. Just it rained all day that it was hassle to walk around with umbrella and shop at Christmas stores. Christmas shop was really really wonderful. They had a lot of unique quality products.

We did a day trip from Munich to Salzburg. Ian was great... super knowledgable, friendly and entertaining. He utilized time on the train to walk through the history in depth, and then gave us a big overview of Salzburg when we were there giving us plenty of free time to do what we wanted and/or spend more time in a particular site.

Salzburg is so close to Munich - I am really happy we booked this day trip. It was well organized and easy. Our guide, Venela was AWESOME. She was personable and very knowledgeable. She even gave us recs for other things to do in Munich after the tour was over. Salzburg is like a fairy tale place, we are already planning to go back and spend more time there.
