This was a great day trip and we were able to see the highlights of Salzburg. As our time was limited, it was nice to leave the navigation to someone else and experience the city without the hassles of planning it all and navigating by ourselves. That saved us time and allowed us to appreciate the city. I would recommend this trip to others who want a quick day trip to see the city.

Description

Salzburg is the hometown of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. If you’d like to visit his place of birth, former residence, the streets he walked and the cafés he frequented, join our day trip and we’ll take you there!

Salzburg is also one of the most popular “set-jetting” or movie tourism destinations in the world for one simple reason – The Sound of Music. We’ll show you sites you’ll remember from the silver screen, such as the beautiful Mirabell Gardens where Julie Andrews and the children were filmed singing Do-Re-Mi.

And still, there’s so much more to see. Salzburg features one of the finest preserved medieval old towns in Europe, with romantic winding shopping streets, atmospheric marketplaces and outstanding architectural monuments dating back to the late baroque era.

You’ll see piazzas and fountains, the stunning Salzburg Cathedral, palaces and pleasure gardens, churches, monasteries and catacombs, confectioneries and patisseries, and the oldest restaurant in the continent. And, towering above it all, the breathtaking 900-year-old Hohensalzburg Fortress. Framed by a spectacular backdrop of mountains, this magnificent edifice dominates the city’s skyline.

Great day trip
Iain was a great tour guide and extremely knowledgeable.
Awesome Day
This trip was amazing. Ian was the best tour guide and I seriously could have just taken the trip to sit on the train listening to him explain the history of Salzburg and it's interesting facts! Highly recommended.

Fabulous!!!
Just that word does not do this tour justice. Our guide was Jova. Not only was he an amazing story teller, but he was patient (when my group forgot a meeting time) and so much fun. I really recommend this tour!
Although go pee before you get to the tour platform, then there are plenty of restrooms after the 2 hour bus ride to get to the town where the castle is!

We enjoyed the tour and the guide Joyel. I would recommend it storngly at the beginning of the stay. We did take a "Third Reich and Hitler tour" the day before so it was nice to get the more cosy version as a tourist as well. Lots of nice stories, tips for shops and restaurants and sightseeing for the rest of our stay. We did not have the time for Scloss Neuschwanstein, which we would have loved to take. So we have to come back at another occasion.
A great tour
Our guide India was super friendly, knowledgeable, and down to earth. The train ride down was beautiful, the castle was exquisite, and the heavy metal sausage shop in Hohenschwangau is an oddly wonderful place for lunch. I highly recommend this tour.
