Tour Overview

Be ready for pickup at 10.00 am at your Salzburg hotel. Make yourself comfortable in your comfortable touring vehicle and experience the beautiful landscape that the famous ‘Salzkammergut’ lake region has to offer. After a short drive from Salzburg, you’ll reach the castle of Fuschl. Capture a picture of the castle of Fuschl with the emerald-green Lake Fuschlsee as its backdrop, before heading on to St. Gilgen with Lake Wolfgang, the next photo stop.

The next highlight is Wolfgang Lake and the villages St. Gilgen and St. Wolfgang. Capture a picture of St. Wolfgang from a great viewpoint before arriving in St. Wolfgang town center.

Afterward, the drive will take you through Bad Ischl, which is famous for the “Kaiser” (Emperor) Villa and the Café Zauner, and on to Bad Goisern and Hallstatt.

Having reached Hallstatt and the highlight of this full-day tour, your private guide will point out the must-sees of Hallstatt to you, which include a beautiful photo spot of Hallstatt, Charnel House (Bone House), Hallstatt Museum, Hallstatt Waterfall “Waldbachstrub”, Hallstatt’s local residence area and more. You will have 2 hours to explore Hallstatt and all these sites on your own as well as to have lunch in one of the great lakeside restaurants in Hallstatt (at your own expense).

The ride back to Salzburg will take you via Gosau (including another great photo stop!), Dachstein Mountain Range, Russbach and Golling. After eight hours exploring one of Austria’s most beautiful areas, your private tour will conclude with drop-off at your Salzburg city hotel.

Immersive & Engaging Started with a no fuss booking with Manfred who gave the good advise to start at 9am rather than 10am to capture as much daylight. Patrick our guide was fun, informative and accomodative. Took us to local detours to see a waterfall and gave us lots of little tips along the way. Would highly recommend.

Highly recommend This was a wonderful experience for our group of 6! Patrick kindly stopped at several beautiful lake view photo ops along the way before we went to the salt mine (entry fee not included) and Hallstat. Everyone had fun at the salt mine, and we enjoyed a nice meal overlooking the lake thanks to Patrick's recommendation in Hallstat, a charming little town. The door-to-door service from our Salzburg hotel was fantastic.

Perfect Day Trip From Munich Outstanding!!! Patrick was the perfect guide. We were staying in Munich, Patrick is based in Salzburg and drove to Munich to pick us up (that’s how this tour works), so we had a Salzburg expert taking us around Salzburg. We picked the return train option for the end of the day, and Patrick walked us into the station, bought the tickets, and guided us to the platform to return to Munich. Honestly the train return was best as we slept. This is the perfect Munich day trip! Patrick is a rock star tour guide.

Excellent trip The view was amazing and I think we have the best time of the year for the trip. At beginning of the October colors of the trees were amazing. I stayed two days in Salzburg Austria at Hous am Moss, Cleanness of the place and relaxed atmosphere were amazing. Helpful owners even arrange an early breakfast so we could catch the plane from Munich. Thank you

Sound of Music/Lake District/Hallstatt Not sure if this was the same tour we were on, but we had Patrick as our guide and Manfred as our driver for this personal Sound of Music tour on our way to Hallstatt. It was the highlight of our trip to Austria!We decided while visiting our daughter, who was studying abroad in Vienna, to visit Salzburg as well. My husband got us this tour and we all thoroughly enjoyed it!! We have so many pictures, I can't add all of them. Patrick provided so much detail and insight into Austria for us! It was wonderful.I highly recommend!!

Beautiful Town, Excellent Guide! Our family very much enjoyed our day trip to Hallstatt. The little stops along the way made the trip extra special. The scenery and foliage were just gorgeous.Patrick was a fantastic guide- very friendly and knowledgeable. He gave us really helpful advice on how to spend the remainder of our time in Salzburg. I highly recommend this tour, and I would not hesitate to book again with them in the future.

Incredible day! This day was absolutely unbelievable! We would have never been able to see and experience what we did, had we not done this tour. Having Manfred, our tour guide, all to ourselves, was worth every penny. He was incredibly knowledgeable (grew up in the area) and stopped in a number of out of the way places, that we would have otherwise not experienced. If you want the flexibility to customize your tour, this is the way to go! We loved every minute of it!

Fun Fun Fun -Educational and Exhilarating Our tour guide was absolutely amazing, funny, knowledgeable, and spoke both German and English. What an incredible experience- from putting on required pants and shirts and going into the mine and the wooden slides you take down. There are two of them. The second one is long and for me I was scared to death but leaned back on my husband and prayed it would go quick. It was fascinating and I am so glad I did it, despite being claustrophobic. The tour itself is wonderful and seeing the lake when you get to the bottom is just crazy amazing. I loved this and it was the highlight of our trip to Hallstatt. I definitely would not miss this. The walk up to the salt mines is steep and lots to see on the way. We loved the entire journey. I hope you found this helpful.

Best tour company in Salzburg! Highly Recommended! I can't say enough about the entire experience with Manfred and Patrick. Their knowledge of the area, and ability to time the day out ensured our tours were personal, relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable. They knew when and where to stop, what to eat and drink and how to navigate lines and attractions. Besides that they are an amazing team that keeps you focused on the adventure. We did the The Hills are Alive and Hallstatt and the Bavarian Mountain tours, each were full days. Promptly arrived both days and got us back only after we saw everything scheduled! Highly recommend using the Driver/Guide combination - it really adds to the enjoyment and understanding. The vehicle was perfect for all 6 travelers, very comfortable. Overall a great tour was promised and delivered! Highly Recommended!
