    What to Expect
    Your tour will begin with pickup from your central Vienna hotel or the State Opera. Meet your expert guide and hop aboard your coach to begin your day trip to Salzburg.

    Soak up incredible views from the windows as you travel, passing the landscape of lakes and mountains where Emperor Franz Joseph and his family used to holiday. Pause at Lake Mondsee for photos before reaching Salzburg and enjoying some free time for lunch.

    Afterward, explore the Old Town on a walking tour. Pass the Festival Hall, the Cathedral and St Peter’s Abbey, as your guide explains the stories behind these historical sites and how the city became a bishop’s seat. You’ll also learn about the city’s most famous resident, Wolfgang Mozart, who was born in Salzburg and lived in the city until his late teens. As you walk through the busy shopping streets, spot the prolific composer’s home at no. 9 Getreidegasse.

    Admire the gardens as you continue through Mirabell Palace, where several scenes from The Sound of Music were filmed. Pass the statue of Pegasus, the same statue that Maria and the children famously danced around while singing ‘Do-Re-Mi.’

    Your Salzburg day trip will conclude with a scenic drive back to Vienna, passing through the Fortress Hohensalzburg, one of the largest medieval castles in Europe. You will be dropped off atVienna State Opera.

    Horrible experience! They claim I did not pick my hotel for pick up. I know for a fact I did. I had to scroll for awhile to find my hotel. A bus got to my hotel and got some people but would not get my party of 3. I called and they refused. I emailed and they still claim I did

    Be prepared for a long drive to Salzburg (almost 4 hours). Our guide Tomas , kept us regaled with his stories and fantastic sense of humour. They also set the tone of the trip with Mozart music and Sound of Music songs playing in the bus. We got around 4 hours free time at

    Our travel agent offered this excursion as extension to week in Vienna. I wish I’d read reviews before signing contract! We spent more time on motor coach than in Salzburg: 4 hours going . 3 hours in town, 4 hour return. Our guide used no microphone system, making it impossible

    We took the day trip out of Vienna. The guide was pleasant and informative. His highlight tour of Salzburg was great and we were left with enough time to explore on our own

    I was too excited about this trip but seemed like it was entirely only about Mozart. While the guide shares extensive information, be prepared to be hurried and walk for 3.5 hrs straight. Although I visited in September, it was hot (around 24-26 degree celsius) ! Would suggest
