The first part of the tour was just ok. he took us all over but he didn't want to answer questions. The second part was amazing. The tour guide was very informative.

The best tour on our two week adventure. We had explored Salzburg on our own but the tour with Mirkor was very informative. There were only 2 couple for the lakes part of the tour so Anne Marie drove us in a mini van through the beautiful scenery to St. Wolfgang and St. Gilgen. She put us on a boat which was fantastic and met us on the other side. I can't say enough good things about our tour guide, Anne Marie. She had a delightful Montreal English accent and an equally delightful personality. She made us feel that she wasn't just a tour guide but she was participating in the adventure with us. She played a few minutes of Austrian music for us yodeling which was surprisingly pleasant as we sailed through the beautiful countryside. We're home now but I have very good memories of our little tour. She recommended an excellent local bier garten and dropped us off nearby Die Weiss.

Great overall experience and good way to see the city and the lakes in one dsy - punctual and organised service, experienced guides, comfortable transportation, let alone the stunning scenery all along.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

The city tour was honestly a partial waste of time, as we spent all the time inside a minivan with the driver/tour guide. However, one hour would not have been enough to see everything he showed.

The BEST part of the tour, and what was totally worth doing, was the boat ride to the lakes and mountains and visit to St. Wolfgang. Absolutely breathtaking, seeing the alps, beautiful waters of the lakes, and seeing the little towns with colorful houses. We have a wonderful time.

Sound of Music fantastic. Helen was fantastic. The next day we went on the City + mountain and lake tour which was going to overlap the SOM tour sites so our fantastic driver (unfortunately we didn't get his name) took us to other sites which were even better than the Sites from the previous tour.
