This was an amazing tour, the only reason I give 4 stars is because when we got to the last town, after the boat tour, we only had 45 mins. to spare. I would have given a 5 star if we had been granted 15 extra mins.

I am a regular user of Viators and have always had great trips out booking through your site. However this trip was a huge disappointment despite the best efforts of the guide. The weather was lousy which didn't help but that has not had a bearing on my review. The main problem was that this was supposedly a 4 hour trip viewing 3 beautiful lakes of Austria, but it didn't start until 2pm. Being late November it was completely dark by the time we were passing the 3rd lake and we didn't even stop - not that there would have been much point! This should be a morning trip, or start at midday at the latest. Additionally the trip blurb clearly states as a highlight that it includes a visit to Castle Fuschl. All we had was the guide point out a building in the distance about half a mile away as we drove past - and because of the poor weather it was barely visible. That doesn't constitute a visit to my way of thinking! The details of the trip also refer to popping into the famous White Horse Inn at St Wolfgang. The guide never mentioned the Inn whilst we were there it is only when I have read the details afterwards! We knew that the boat ride was replaced with coffee and cake due to the time of year, but it did mean that having the coffee and cake was just about all the time we had in St Gilgen, so no real time to look around which although it was dark by then, it would have been nice to wander around the Christmas Market there. Finally, instead of this being advertised as a 4 hour trip, we were back in under 3 and a half hours. Maybe it is 4 hours in the summer when the boat trip is included, or it may have been 4 hours if it had been daylight when we passed the 3rd lake and we stopped for photos but as neither was the case we could have perhaps been given more time to explore St Gilgen after the coffee and cake, or at St Wolfgang when we could have perhaps been shown and visited the famous White Horse Inn, or even a detour that would have taken us somewhat closer to Castle Fuschl when it was still at least still daylight for us to have stopped and taken a photo or two....

A beautiful tour. Breathtaking scenery. Note that after November 1, the tour no longer includes the boat ride, which should've been better noted before you sign up - instead, you stop at a little cafe for cake and coffee/hot chocolate. I'm sure I would've given this tour one or two additional stars if I had taken it before November 1!

We're estimating this review based upon another trip we were boarded onto in error by Panorama tours, but which included a fair element of lakes and mountains, although no boat trip. The scenery is lovely - very reminiscent of the west coast of Scotland - but we felt we were being rather rushed through it all, and that places were rather 'touristy'. Which I guess we ought to have expected by booking a trip like this!

The trip was well organised, on time and very informative. Unfortunately cake and coffee/refreshments was offered as part of the deal on Viator, but there was no such an activity included.

Lovely tour! It was perfect for us as it is a 4-hour tour so it is not that long and we only had availability in the afternoon. We were super lucky with the weather which made the mountains and lakes even nicer! Tour departed on time, with a lovely guide that was really patient with all the passengers. This tour is a great mix as you take a bus, then you go on the cruise (which is super comfortable and you can have drinks in there) and then you visit the lovely town of St Wolfgang, what a gem! Worth to do it to have a glance of the beautiful Salzburg Mountain and Lakes.

This is a great trip to see Austrian lakes and mountains. I had Max as a guide and he simply was the best with all his knowledge of the area. I reccomend this trip to anyone wanting to get out of Salzburg for four hours and see the beautiful countryside.
