Full description
This tour from Vienna to Salzburg and the surrounding lake district is a wonderful opportunity to dive into the world of classical music and see some of the jewels of the world’s natural heritage.  Salzburg is a beautiful city on the banks of the River Salzach, and is also the world capital of classical music, being the home town of both Mozart and Karajan. Walk through the Mirabell Gardens and see the very house where Mozart was born, as well as the cathedral and St. Peter’s Abbey, one of the oldest abbeys in Europe. During your free time you may choose to take the funicular up to the fortress of Hohensalzburg to see marvelous panoramic views over the city. Anyone who has ever watched the "Sound of Music" will be thrilled at seeing some of the film locations.  After embracing the cultural side of Salzburg, you will explore the natural beauty of the Salzkammergut lake region. What could be more magnificent than the reflection of the mighty Alpine mountains in the crystal clear water of the picturesque lakes? Prepare yourself for some unforgettable alpine landscapes, pure clear air and the sparkling blue water of the Mondsee lake.  These are not the only treasures that are waiting for you in the Salzkammergut. The last highlight of the tour will be small villages on the shores of the Attersee. The still waters of the mysterious lakes hide many legends and stories, which all contribute to the very special character of this tour.

It was a great small tour group, we made new friends and my daughter and myself saw some of the most beutiful views we've ever seen, all thanks to our guide Alex. We were never rushed and our tour was still finished on time. All aided by beutiful weather. Money well spent.

Very well organized. Great professionalism and presicion. I would prefer to have more free time in Salzburg. Only one hour is very little for 1 day trip. Also in the bus it is really tired and boring sometimes to hear the guide to speak non stop for 5 hours without being able to speak with your rest friends, especially when you have children.
