Wonderful trip. Lake Region looks exactly like a postcard or tour book picture and shouldn’t be missed. Salzburg’s a lovely city and it was fun to see locations where the Sound of Music was filmed. Ben, our driver, picked us up promptly and was very knowledgeable and informative on the trip to and from—ask for him for your trip. And our guide in Salzburg (Karina?) also was knowledgeable and did an excellent job pointing out important sites and passing on pertinent historical information. Overall a great trip which I’d recommend.
This was an amazing tour. My husband and I as well as a couple of friends were the only participants. We loved being taken to Salzburg and seeing the fabulous sights of the old town. We would recommend it to any small group. Our guide was quite knowledgeable and sensitive to our needs and desires. Definitely put this tour on your list!!
The only thing that wasn't perfect was the weather!
Ben Aussie was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and shared much of this knowledge with us as we drove from point to point. In Salzburg, our tour guide for the walking tour was Yulia local who told us all about what makes Salzburg special not just Sound of Music, Mozart and Doppler.
The old town of Salzburg is gorgeous and the view from the fortress is just sensational.
The van was comfortable and clean. iPads are mounted on the seat so we could watch the Sound of Music on the way home.
the trip was awesome. The drive is so .......nice and arranged the schedule so well. The tour guide at Salzburg was excellent . He explained the history and provide the best recommendation to everyone. The 12 hr trip was definitely my highlight in Vienna, Highly recommend to every one.
Really enjoyed this tour, and highly recommend it. Excellent guides on the drive up and in Salzburg, in particular our driver Tom he was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and informative to just the right degree, never overbearing. If we had one day to see Salzburg from Vienna this was the way to do it however since inevitably there could only be several hours in the town during which we saw plenty, it made us realize that a multi-day visit, had it been possible on our schedule, might really have been necessary to fully appreciate Salzburg and the other locations visited. Our decision had been whether to take this small-group luxury trip, or a less expensive large bus tour. What made this work within our budget was the youth discount for our college-age children, which most tour organizations do not offer, which kept the total price into a range we could handle, and we were so glad that was the case. Besides the personalization and flexibility and extra efficiency of the small group tour, we were super impressed with many high quality touches, i.e., the Mercedes van, very comfortable captain seats, I-Pads, wi-fi, excellent headphones, etc. Water was available, and umbrellas in case we were concerned by a chance of rain in the forecast. The stops on the way up were quite worthwhile on their own. Between the stops, the I-Pads, and Toms excellent narration, the travel time did not seem burdensome at all. Just one glitch to mention: Toms dialog was through a hand-held microphone, and there were parts of the trip on high-speed highways or busy city traffic. With all other aspects of the trip being so modern and high-quality, Id wonder why a hands-free mike could not have been used nothing ever felt particularly dangerous, but its the principle. But certainly we were fully satisfied with this tour.
My friends and I a group of three booked this trip as tour transportation - an interesting and efficient way to get from Vienna, where we'd been staying for a few days, to Salzburg, where we were departing for our trip home. The small van, which ended up only having the three of us and the driver, was PERFECT for providing relaxing travel while hearing about the country and seeing great views. Ben, our driver, and Phillip, our Salzburg walking tour guide, were excellent! Both provided lots of history and info, as well as suggestions for things to come back and see, places to eat, and tips and tricks for navigating Austria. I would definitely book this same trip, and will look for other opportunities to book through Viator in other cities. Excellent experience!!!
Tom was our driver for the bus portion of the tour and Peter was the walking tour guide in Salzburg. They were both great guides - very entertaining and so knowledgable! We loved every minute of this tour and would absolutely recommend it to all!
Comfortable ride and lot of good information as well. Expensive but it is a 6-hour round trip and the Mercedes vans are comfortable.
This tour was amazing! Our guide Ben was very informative. Highly recommended
Great day out, our driver Tom was fantastic very knowledgeable and entertaining saw lots of things on the way to Salzburg and once we got there it was wonderful the local guild Gabbie was lovely, had a very enjoyable day
