7:30 AM
Meet your guide at your Vienna hotel and settle into your private vehicle for the journey to Salzburg. Keep your camera to hand as you pass through the Vienna Woods, see the distant peaks of the Alps, then drive through the dreamy landscapes of the Austrian Lake District. Jump out to admire the views at Lake Attersee, explore the lakeside town of St. Gilgen and see famous filming locations from ‘The Sound of Music’.

Arrive in Salzburg around midday and embark on a 1.5-hour walking tour, accompanied by a local guide. Discover Salzburg’s fascinating history and heritage as you follow your guide to sights like Mozart's birthplace, the festival area of Kapitelplatz, the grand Salzburg Residenz and the Baroque Salzburg Cathedral. Along the way, see more ‘The Sound of Music’ filming locations as you peek into the cemetery of St. Peter’s Abbey, where the Trapp-family hid, and stroll the magnificent Mirabell Palace gardens, where the song ‘Do-Re-Mi’ was recorded.

Break for lunch (own expense), then spend the afternoon exploring Salzburg independently. Perhaps ride the funicular (own expense) to the hilltop Hohensalzburg fortress, visit the Mozart museum or shop for souvenirs in the UNESCO-listed Old Town.

Leave Salzburg around 4.30pm and travel back to Vienna, where you’ll end your tour with drop-off at your hotel around 7.30pm.

Private tour in Salzburg
, Jul 2022
Ulrich, our guide was wonderful - very knowledgeable and helpful. He made this tour special. I reccomend the tour as it gives you flexibility to spend as much or as little time you want in each location.

Thanks so much, Lucia! It was a pleasure to be your host in Austria for a day. All the best to you and see you back in Vienna soon! Ulrich
Great way to see Salzburg from Vienna
, Sep 2018
Was a great trip and our guide did a good job even though he is new at this. His speech delivery could be better but that comes with experience. The long drive going was broken up with rest and picture stops so that wasn't too bad. Coming home we watched the Sound of Music movie most of the way. Was almost 3 hrs long. Rained on us so that wasn't too enjoyable but such is life. Only saw a couple of places where some of the movie was shot so don't think you will see a lot relating to the movie. Still I enjoyed seeing Salzburg and the scenery on the way.
Very beautiful city, nice tour driver (Vienna - Salzburg)
, Jun 2018
Very nice experience in a beautiful small city. But the local Salzburg tour was too short, only 1.5 hours, and we didn't get a chance to see the Schloss Leopoldskorn. The Lake area is very beautiful, but we were unfortunate as it was raining.
