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.
Excellent tour our guides were brilliant. Saw so much more than you could ever do on your own.
The Austrian Lakes and Mountains tour was great! The City tour was Okay, although the guide flirted with one of the passengers
The panoramic Salzburg tour and the Austrian Lakes and Mountains sighseeing tour were both fabulous. Could not see Eagles Nest because the road was narrow and dangerous to travel in the snow. Snow everywhere in December during my winter break as a teacher. I believe that a free beverage and slice of cake of your choice was included in this tour. The bus was huge and comfortable. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Teller machines were available when visiting one of the little towns. Great afternoon five hour trip.
Very nice afternoon. 1 hour in the city. About 4 hours visiting lakes and hills. Included 45 minutes boat ride.
Forget the city tour.. just do the mountains and lakes.. City can just take a map and walk around yourself, city is smaller than you expect.. Better than just a quick drive within 1 hour to get a quick glimpse only.. also especially when some of the main attractions are on pedastrians only walkways so the car cannot take you there..
Boat cruise was lovely..

This is one of the most picturesque areas I have seen in Salzburg. The boat ride on Lake Wolfgang is well worth it and the unique town of St. Gilgen is absolutely beautiful. The 70km bus ride through the countryside was magical.
This company was AMAZING, GREAT tour, GREAT guide, and a GREAT company! We missed our scheduled reservation because of a train mishap, but the company was very flexible and was able to reschedule a different tour for us, no problem. Highly recommended!
Wonderful tour,would definitely recommend to all my friends. The group size was great and the tour guides were very friendly and informative. I especially enjoyed my trip to the lakes and mountains. Amazing overview of the lakes and mountains. We went to this most beautiful small town St. Wolf gang, the highlight of the tour. If you are tight on time and want to see the most beautiful parts around Salzburg. Go for this tour!!
This was a great tour, first the city, where the guide was very informative and the lakes and mountains were amazing.

The city part of the tour was very average. Van wasn't that comfortable and guide was doing three languages because they grouped others with us. We had to sit apart even though we were there first. We wouldn't recommend it. We did a better job of seeing city sites on our own. That said, the lakes and mountains sightseeing was spectacular. Very comfortable bus with big windows. The scenery is phenomenal, the ride comfortable and the information thorough. We even had some time on our own. The boat ride was great as well- it was a beautiful, sunny day. Five star trip. Definitely recommend it.
The Austrian Lakes part of this tour was really lovely. However was a little disappointed with the City Tour - we literally sat on a bus for the whole duration, and got whisked around the sights of Salzburg. I would have preferred to walk around a bit. However the guide did a great job, considering the itinerary. Would definitely recommend the Lakes component.
This was very good value. The Salzburg City tour was done in a minivan so there were only 4 of us. Charlotte our guide was excellent. Parts of the tour were the same as the Sound of Music tour but that was not a problem.
The Lakes and Mountains was also very good. Not too rushed and outstanding natural beauty.
A very enjoyable day with a pleasant guide. The Salzburg tour is nothing special but the Lake tour is great. The boat ride to St. Wolfgang was particularly memorable. We were very fortunate to have good weather since it rains a lot in Salzburg.
The mountains and lakes are breathtaking!! Definitely worth visiting and much nicer than those in Switzerland. The commentary was over-the-top with bad jokes (bring headphones to tune it out). The stop at the tea shop for cake was a nice surprise.
