Duration:   12h 00 min


„Sound of Music“ fan or not: Take advantage of your stay in Vienna and visit Salzburg. With your friendly English-speaking guide you depart from your hotel in Vienna in a comfortable private vehicle.

The scenery on the way to Salzburg is breathtaking: You pass by the Vienna Woods, see the peaks of the Alps from afar, and finally reach the Austrian lake district. Take pictures of the region’s gorgeous mountain lakes and villages and visit the locations from „The Sound of Music“!

In Salzburg your guide will take you on an extensive walking tour: hear intriguing stories about the history and the city’s famous inhabitants while you see the most important sights. Among other things you see Mozart's birthplace, the colourful gardens of the Mirabell Palace (the „DoReMi“ song was filmed here), the cemetery of the abbey of St. Peter (the Trapp-family hid there), the festival area, the Archbishop’s Palace and the cathedral.

After the walking tour you can spend a couple of hours in Salzburg for lunch, to do some shopping or to explore the city further on your own. Visit the Mozart museum or take a ride in the funicular up to the impressive fortress of Hohensalzburg. In the late afternoon meet up with your guide for the return transfer to Vienna.

Enjoy the superior service and the personal atmosphere of this private tour: Your knowledgeable guide is ready to respond to (almost) your every request and requirement. Lots of photo opportunities!

Private Day Trip to Salzburg

Robert did a great job on the tour of Salzburg. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of Vienna and Salzburg. He did a great job, had a great Mercedes van that he used to take us there and back, and he was very flexible and what we wanted to do. I recommend him highly.

Salzburg Day-Trip with kids
Robert was a fantastic tour guide! He arrived early and enthusiastically interacted with our four tired kids. He tailored the Salzburg tour to our wants- stopping to let the kids sample the Lake Moonsee water, showing us all the Sound of Music sights while intertwining history into each stop of the walking tour. His restaurant and cafe recommendations were perfect and he demonstrated a great ability to tell a good story. If you are looking for a tour of Salzburg, or other nearby capitals, Robert is a perfect fit!
