Salzburg and Lake Region Small-Group Tour from Vienna

(194 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.

Fun day to get out of the cities
Great to see the lake region and then Salzburg. Small group, accommodating driver and guide. Breath of fresh air. Fun watching Sound of Music on the way from standing in the sites!

We had a fabulous time.
We had a fabulous time.  Julio made the drive go quickly.  There were 6 in our group.  This was a perfect number.  Julio gave us the history of Austria and the Hapsburgs.  He also told us about the rise of Nazism and the take over of Austria, and the recent history of the country.  We stopped for coffee and a pastry at Landzeit along the highway.  We stopped at three of the lakes and really enjoyed that.  
Naomi was excellent also.  Her personal experiences and her knowledge of history was amazing.  She was light and funny at times.  She made the history very interesting.  We had plenty of time to shop and eat a late lunch.  We could ask for anything more.  A truly wonderful day and fantastic memories.
