(55 Reviews)
Duration:   12h 00 min


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

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 you will be joined by a local expert guide who 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 your driver will take you to Vienna and back to your hotel.

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!

Really enjoyable
Loved it, week made by this tour, despite the price it was made worth it by the comfort of the mini van, free water provided, multiple stops to our hearts content and enough free time in Salzburg although could have done with half an hour more

We were met at our hotel by our driver Flemming. He was punctual, friendly and extremely knowledgable. We had a very comfortable van that was supplied with bottled water for the three hour drive to Salzburg. Our driver told us so much about Austrian history and kept us spell-bound the whole way to Salzburg. He drove us through the beautiful lake district and we stopped to take breath-taking pictures. We stopped for a short ice-cream break in St. Gilgen a pretty little village that just happened to be the hometown of Mozarts mother. It was a gorgeous town by the water. Once in Salzburg we were met by our guide who took us by foot and showed us all the highlights of Salzburg. She was very interesting and knowledgable. We saw many places that were central in "The Sound of Music" movie. We also saw Mozarts childhood home which is now a museum. We walked around the town and went up to the Salzburg Fortress. The views were awesome! We stopped at a local restaurant and ate lunch. After a great day in Salzburg we met back up with our driver Flemming for the ride back to our hotel in Vienna. He had many more things to tells us about the history of Austria. We were very pleased with our trip and highly recommend it to everyone!

A Great Day Trip
We had a great time on our day trip to Salzburg. Travel there and back was very convenient and comfortable. It was nice seeing the lakes on the way, and our tour through Salzburg was nice and informative. We had plenty of free time to get lunch on our own and check out the attractions that interested us the most. I would highly recommend it.
