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!
