Sound of Music afternoon tour in December

Planning a day trip to Salzburg from Munich.

Planned to take the 6:24am Munich-Salzburg train (arrives 7:58 am) just so that we could be in good time to join the 9:30am Sound of Music tour in Salzburg. That is on Railjet. Return to Munich via RB or RE trains (Bayern ticket).

I just realised the Bayern ticket is a DAY ticket, not a 1-way ticket... meaning all we pay for the return journey is only 38Euros for 5 adults (or less, if the 5 pax are husband, wife + children) - correct? Provided of course we travel after 9am. That would mean we cannot make it for the 9:30am SOM tour.

Am now contemplating switching to the 2p.m. tour. That would mean quite a bit of savings since we won't need to buy a separate Railjet ticket.

Just wondering : In 3rd week of December, wouldn't it be dark by 4pm or so in Salzburg? The SOM tour lasts 4 hours - what could we possibly see once it's dark? Any comments from forummers who might have taken this afternoon tour in December before?

Thanks.

Thanks for all your advice, everyone. We will probably forget about the tour and stick to the city. We can then take the 9:44am train using Bayern ticket.
