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.

So pleased we booked this tour! We had wanted to visit Hallstatt but it was over our budget so went for this tour and are so glad we did and felt it wouldn't have been much different. The views were breathtaking and our guide Wolfgang was excellent. Highly recommend!

This tour was a lot of fun and absolutely beautiful! Our guide Max was wonderful! The lakes and the mountains were absolutely breath taking and it was a great way to see the countryside outside of the city center. The boat ride was wonderful. We kicked our feet up, drank beers and soaked in the stunning scenery. We would definitely recommend this tour!
