Salzburg and Lake Region Small-Group Tour from Vienna

(103 Reviews)
Duration:   12h 00 min


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.

Awesome 👏 Experience
Did the tour to Salzburg today with Ton , he’s an awesome guy that’s knowledgeable and a professional in what he does , I thoroughly enjoyed my day with the live commentary from Ton for kept us interested throughout the journey , quite frankly you don’t feel the 3hrs of the journey with stops for the bathrooms every so now and then . This was the highlight of my trip to Vienna and without a doubt this was made possible with Ton , I would most definately use the service of this company again and would use Ton . A visit to Vienna would be incomplete without a trip to Salzburg .

Just do it !
What a great day, our main guide Fleming set the tone early on with a friendly warm welcome on arrival at the meeting point. The bus itself is an 8 seater with iPads and Bose headphones for your use, particularly handy for the journey back. Fleming provided us with a vast amount of interesting information throughout the day all delivered in perfect English. The day was perfectly organised yet Fleming had a great relaxed manner that really enhanced the trip. The stops at Lake Atta and the beautiful village of St Gilgen were well worth the detour en route to Salzburg. On arrival at Salzburg we were met by Antonio who provided lots of great info and recommendations for eating/drinking. Salzburg itself is a wonderful city with a perfect old town great for a meandering stroll around and particularly interesting if you like ‘The Sound of Music’. I can’t recommend this trip highly enough, the organisation, the stops, the views, the guides, a perfect day. One of the highlights of our trip to Austria. Just do it.
