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
The transport was very luxurious indeed. Our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. The drive to Salzburg was beautiful with magnificent views. It was raining when we got to Salzburg but that didn't stop us from exploring this beautiful sound of music city. The extra Spent on this tour is so worthed. I so recommend this tour.
It was great trip. Well organized and managed . I would recommend this tour.
Beautiful drive to Salsburg! The van was extremely comfortable and our driver was very knowledgeable and courteous. We stopped along the way for refreshments and then on to beautiful Salzburg where we met our guide for the walking tour. She led us through the streets with excellent information, even pointing out nice places for lunch. Salzburg is beautiful!
Excellent tour! Highly recommend this tour of Salzburg, we did it as a one way trip and they dropped our bags at the motel while we were guided around old town. Our driver Ben was fantastic, both knowledgable and helpful. The small group format is great.
It was a most enjoyable day trip. Our guide Ben was very knowledgeable and most pleasant. The scenery was spectacular. The local guide in Salzburg was also excellent. We wished we had more time to explore as there was so much to see.
This was truly a fantastic day trip. Guides Ben and Naomi were both fantastic. They provided interesting insights and recommendations for things to do during the time on your own in the city. Salzburg should not be missed and this is the way to see it! Lake District was also incredible!
A wonderful day trip with a great tour guide. Wish I had made it a 2 day trip
Everything was excellent....our guides were wonderful....would recommend to anyone looking for an enjoyable day trip from Vienna.
Very comfortable van and 2 great tour guides Ben on the way from Vienna to Salzburg and Philip on the walking portion once there. Beautiful views, great local breakfast stop on the way there! We were staying in Salzburg, which was perfect but if you are going back at least you know it is in comfort long day!
Tony was a great guide and so was the local guide in Salzburg. The transport was comfortable as promised. Top service.
We had a fantastic day out! The transport was nice and spacious with plenty of leg room - we had an ipad and a pair of bose headsets on each seat and there's nothing better than a scenic journey with some great music you can choose yourself! : Peter and Naomi were fab guides and a lot of fun too. The tour itself was very informative and we drove through some amazing landscape, especially Salzkammergut, the lake district. Honestly I can't recommend this tour enough!
We were unsure about this tour since it looks new and has no reviews. We were setup with an A tour guide Ben from one of the big, local companies. He was so nice and knowledgeable, on time in the Mercedes van, and gave us tons of good info along the way without being overly talkative! Then we met up with Naomi in Salzburg, who was eager to show us the city! When we got to St. Gilgen and the lake, we jumped on an electric boat rental for about 20 minutes we didn't have much time there, but could go back for a week for the views alone!, which was maybe the best 20 minutes of our lives! When we got to Salzburg, we took the lift to the top of the fortress and grabbed a pretzel and beer at the top for another priceless vista that I can't put into words! Overall so glad we did it and would highly recommend to anyone going to Vienna!
A most enjoyable trip with the guide Marcus. The detours on the way to Salzburg via Mondsee and other villages were quite picturesque. Salzburg was an interesting town with a variety of optical treats. Due to reduced mobility, it was not possible to follow the whole walking tour our choice and NOT Imposed on us but we enjoyed our extra free time wandering at our own pace.
My only complaint would be that I could have happily spent more time in Salzburg.
