Explore in a group of no more than 8 people the beautiful city of Salzburg on this day trip departing from Vienna. Led by an expert guide, relive your favorite scenes from ‘The Sound of Music’ as you pass iconic locations featured in the film. Discover the best of the lake region of Salzkammergut on a back-roads tour stopping at gorgeous Lake Attersee and St. Gilgen village. See Salzburg’s key sights, including Mirabell Palace and Mozart’s Birthplace on a walking tour of the Old Town. Learn about the city’s rich history from your guide and spend the afternoon relaxing or exploring independently. Numbers are limited to eight on this small-group,100% carbon neutral tour.
What to Expect
From your hotel, hop in a cab to your central Vienna meeting spot to join up with your guide and begin your adventure. Be sure to hold on to your receipt so that your taxi cost will be repaid to you at the end of your tour.
Enjoy the stunning landscape along the way, with the Austrian Alps in the distance. Benefit from the intimate group size, allowing your guide to dedicate time to each and every guest. Pass the Vienna Woods, the historic Melk Abbey and stretch your legs at a café to purchase coffee and strudel, if you wish.

Journey through the lake region of Salzkammergut, home to charming villages and Alpine lakes, using the scenic back-roads whenever possible.
Pause to admire crystal-clear Lake Attersee and spend about 30 minutes visiting the quaint lakeside village of St.Gilgen, best known for its appearance in The Sound of Music.

Arrive in Salzburg, where you’ll enjoy a leisurely 1.5- hour walking tour of the city’s UNESCO-listed Old Town, led by a local guide. See the Mirabell Palace and Gardens, Mozart’s Birthplace and the Salzburg Cathedral, and learn the history behind each architectural gem as you go. Spend the afternoon in Salzburg, enjoying about 2.5 hours of free time,  to purchase lunch and wander Mozart town on your own before making the journey back to Vienna with your driver. Hotel drop-off is included for central Vienna hotels.
