Salzburg and Lake Region Small-Group Tour from Vienna

(236 Reviews)
Duration:   12h 00 min

Overview

See the sights of Salzburg on a full-day tour from Vienna, with optional drop offs for those who want to stay the night.

Traveling in a small group of no more than 8 people, our intimate tour will take you through the breathtaking scenery of the Vienna Woods, with the peaks of the Alps in the distance, and on to the stunning Austrian lake district.

Stop where the big tour buses only drive by: dip your toes in crystal-clear Lake Attersee and take a stroll around the lakeside village of St. Gilgen at lake Wolfgangsee, a famous location in the movie "The Sound of Music."

Discover Salzburg's lovely Old Town with your guide on a comprehensive walking tour. Hear intriguing stories about Salzburg's famous inhabitants as you pass Mozart's birthplace, the colorful gardens of Mirabell Palace, the cemetery of the Abbey of St. Peter, Salzburg Cathedral, and the Archbishop’s Palace.

After the walking tour treat yourself to a delicious lunch, or enjoy a quick bite at a sausage stand if your prefer. Spend the remaining afternoon in Salzburg, before your drive back to Vienna.

Guaranteed departure with a minimum of only 2 people!

Don’t Hesitate – Book it!
My fave part was the lake district. Travelling through the mountains and seeing the fog roll along them was cool. It was overcast and rainy our entire trip but the lakes were brilliant and moody in their own right. Our guide was excellent - knowledgeable and professional. I would recommend good walking shoes for Salzburg. Enjoy!
