Private Day Trip to Salzburg from Vienna

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!

Multiple tours with Vienna a la Carte
Salzburg and Prague tours were extraordinary. The guides were informative, factual, enthusiastic, professional, and excellent drivers. Vehicles top quality, clean and comfortable. Well planned excursions with time for brief respites. I highly recommend this tour company for Vienna environs. We will be booking again in the future. Thank you for making our stay all the more enjoyable and worthwhile.

Worth the money
Looked at booking this else way, approximately £50 cheaper each person but canceled at last minute for this one,so glad I did! Big thank you to tom (ton)our driver who was very knowledgeable and true gent! We went through breath taking views of Austria to give us good photos , memories of a life time. We got to Salzburg where sound of music was filmed and brought the film alive as we watch it on the way back on iPad s and wifi on minibus after seeing all the spots of the film in real life.The history of the town and Mozart was part of it too , the local tour guide that met us and time to look about ,was all prefectly well timed, professional and first class customer service.
