Hey. This is a fantastic tour. The guides are awesome. The tour takes in the mountain and lake district. Beautiful scenery. Markets are about Advent, food and wine. If you want to see a different style of Christmas Markets then I can recommend this tour...
Very thankful to have travelled on such an organised excursion to the different markets on the outskirts of Salzburg. Would highly recommend this tour. You are given approximately an hour at the different markets, with a small bonus gift and a free christmas drink.
We enjoyed this tour as we spent just the right amount of time in each market. Unfortunately the boat was a little delayed but the weather was not good so we didn't miss out too much on the final market. It was a shame that the area had not received any snow but the journey to the markets was still enjoyable especially seeing the Red Bull Offices. The small gifts we received were also nice souvenirs of the tour.
I enjoyed it very much...very refreshing experience...a different approach to a Christmas Markets trip...boat ride, time to explore each Christmas Market village, listen to Christmas Carols played by a brass band , even a small group...very Christmasy!!! Would love to do it again!
This tour was one of the highlights of my 12-night stay in Salzburg in December 2012. You visit three different villages, with a boat ride in between, and the entire day is magical.
We loved this tour. We got to see the Christmas Markets and everything was so pretty. The boat ride was very enjoyable and the scenery on the lake was so beautiful.

Great tour and extremely well organised. It was nice to have a local person to assist us getting around the Christmas markets and taking us to the best ones. It was an excellent tour and well worth doing. Make sure you wear warm clothes.
absolutely brilliant. we booked for another trip the next day with the same company. Excellent
Beautiful!! The spirit, meaning of light and colour at the different markets were amazing... if anybody have the opportunity to do this tour during christmas time.....drink a waldbeeren punsch or gluwein to keep warm, but do it!
Excellent trip! All 3 towns that you visit are lovely especially St Wolfgang. We really liked the boat ride on the lake. You are given a candle and a cup as a souvenir.
The firm running this tour, is a professional, friendly tour firm with excellent guides who speak a number of different languages. Although the day we did the Advent tour was cold, drizzly and slushy under foot and there was a full coach to deal with, the several different stops and botat trip which entailed gathering together of participants each time was done in an efficient manner and with humour in difficult circumstances. I also took another tour with this firm, to a salt mine, which again I would highly recommend.

This is an amazing tour. The guide was so friendly and knowledgeable and made the trip fun. I would have been willing to pay a little more for the trip if we could have left earlier in the morning and spent more time in each of the towns. It was just so beautiful and we wanted to take more time to see everything. We would definitely use take more tours with this company. Thanks for a great experience.
Brilliant trip, well worth it! It was nice to see the surrounding areas and markets. The guide was also friendly and very informative. The cruise was also really good.
The trip was well organised. The only down point was that with so much included in one day, there is not a great amount of time at each market. On the plus, your left wanting more, not bored. :-
We enjoyed the Christmas markets very much - just a shame to have a rather short time in two of them but, nevertheless it was well organised and we enjoyed the short boat trip across the lake
Great Xmas tour, tour guide was a laugh as well and very knowledgeable.
Great tour for those interested in the christmas markets and seeing a little bit of the outskirts of Salzburg. The boat ride to St Wolfgang is especially nice as you get panoramic views of the snow capped alps.
Christmas markets tour was fabulous especially the ferry across Wolfgang lake. The trip to Salzburg lakes which we took as well, was the same trip as Christmas markets so don't duplicate it.
wolfsberg market was wonderful. A grest atmosphere. The other markets were a little disappointing, however the trip as a whole was good and well organised with a very good guide.

This was an excellent trip giving the opportunity to see the different styles of Christmas Markets, even though the stalls were very similar but the atmosphere was completely different. Well worth doing. Excellent tour guide too.
The picture listed is one of the markets in Salzburg, you do not go to this well known market. The trip takes you by coach to Wolfgangsee. It is a beautiful ride through the country. You visit three smaller markets on the lake, each has a unique thing to offer. The tour guide was knowledgeable. St. GIlda is the location of where the Vontraps where actually married, not the church in the Sound of Music, which is located in Mondsee. It will take the entire 1/2 day, but it is well worth it if you want to get out and see the countryside.
