Full description

Drive through the stunning natural beauty of the Salzkammergut region on this day trip from Vienna to Salzburg. Uncover historical sites on a guided walking tour of the Salzburg Old Town. Take pictures of some film locations from the hit film "The Sound of Music."

Be picked up from the centrally-located Vienna State Opera house and relax aboard a spacious and airconditioned coach on the ride through the countryside. Take in views of mountains and lakes as you pass through the UNESCO-listed Salzkammergut region. 

Arrive in Salzburg and head to the Old Town. Follow your guide through the cobbled streets to see the Cathedral, the Festival Theater, and St Peter's Church and graveyard. Find the grave of Nannerl, Mozart's sister. 

Stop outside the archbishops' residence and the house Mozart was born in. See the Pferdeschwemme (Horse Well) where the song "Edelweis" was performed in 'The Sound of Music" and view Mirabell Palace where "Do Re Mi" was filmed.

Thomas our guide was very informative and really had a pulse on the crowd early on New Year’s Day. I wish I could have spent even more time in Salzburg because there was much more to see. I managed to pack a lot in the 2 hrs we got to spend self exploring. Of note, I’m not sure if already stated in the description but this is an extremely long day and wouldn’t advise young children in attendance. There was a 2 yr old on our trip and understandably lost patience early on.

We had a very good coach journey to Salzburg stopping off to view the lake and take photos. The guide on the coach was very informative and the tour around Salzburg when we arrived was interesting although it was slightly long and a little tiring. The stop-offs at the service stations both going and returning for food and refreshments was excellent, some lovely hot food.

the trip to salzburg was really pleasant, our guide was great, gave us all the info, we stopped for a break in a nice restaurant, salzburg is nice, it is not small as hallstatt, but for me it was a bit boring I don't know why, but I enjoyed Hallstatt for example more
