From there, glide across Lake Wolfgang on a boat ride to the village of St Gilgen (May to October only), the birthplace of Mozart's mother.

The best tour on our two week adventure. We had explored Salzburg on our own but the tour with Mirkor was very informative. There were only 2 couple for the lakes part of the tour so Anne Marie drove us in a mini van through the beautiful scenery to St. Wolfgang and St. Gilgen. She put us on a boat which was fantastic and met us on the other side. I can't say enough good things about our tour guide, Anne Marie. She had a delightful Montreal English accent and an equally delightful personality. She made us feel that she wasn't just a tour guide but she was participating in the adventure with us. She played a few minutes of Austrian music for us yodeling which was surprisingly pleasant as we sailed through the beautiful countryside. We're home now but I have very good memories of our little tour. She recommended an excellent local bier garten and dropped us off nearby Die Weiss.

City tour is ok for a quick tour of the highlights of Salzburg. To see more, you ne d to get out and walk around the old town area. Lakes and mountains tour was nice, but be ready for the crowds, especially around St Wolfgang.

Disappointing tour. The City Tour is a pure bus tour, and there is practically no chance to get out of the bus to see the various sites. The second part -- the ferry tour is too long.

The city tour was honestly a partial waste of time, as we spent all the time inside a minivan with the driver/tour guide. However, one hour would not have been enough to see everything he showed. The BEST part of the tour, and what was totally worth doing, was the boat ride to the lakes and mountains and visit to St. Wolfgang. Absolutely breathtaking, seeing the alps, beautiful waters of the lakes, and seeing the little towns with colorful houses. We have a wonderful time.

Sound of Music fantastic. Helen was fantastic. The next day we went on the City + mountain and lake tour which was going to overlap the SOM tour sites so our fantastic driver (unfortunately we didn't get his name) took us to other sites which were even better than the Sites from the previous tour.

The city part of the tour was very average. Van wasn't that comfortable and guide was doing three languages because they grouped others with us. We had to sit apart even though we were there first. We wouldn't recommend it. We did a better job of seeing city sites on our own. That said, the lakes and mountains sightseeing was spectacular. Very comfortable bus with big windows. The scenery is phenomenal, the ride comfortable and the information thorough. We even had some time on our own. The boat ride was great as well- it was a beautiful, sunny day. Five star trip. Definitely recommend it.

1. Read the fine print. Unlike all the other tour operators we have dealt with his operator offers only hotel pickup NOT drop off at hotel at end of tour. 2. This tour is not as described. The boat trip is from St Gilgin to St Wolfgang. This means that t St Wolfgang there is a very steep hill to climb to get from boat landing to town square and later to get to tour bus at top of a very steep 400 metre hill. This tour is not suitable for anyone with walking difficulty. 3. City tour was done well. Excellent guide. 4. Bus/Boat tour was passable but guide was arrogant.

The Austrian Lakes part of this tour was really lovely. However was a little disappointed with the City Tour - we literally sat on a bus for the whole duration, and got whisked around the sights of Salzburg. I would have preferred to walk around a bit. However the guide did a great job, considering the itinerary. Would definitely recommend the Lakes component.

Michael T

We had to meet the tour guide across from the Mirabell Gardens. We were looking for some sign of "Viator" not knowing the local tour company had a different name. Once we figured that out we were shown to a van and sat in the van for 15 minutes while we were waiting for a late arrival. The first hour of the tour is a van trip that is not worth your time. Although the guide was good if you were sitting in the middle of the van seat you didn't see much. You can have a better time using the "hop on - hop off" bus and a guide book. The second part of the tour was a bus ride up to the lakes area and well worth the trip. A boat ride on Lake Wolfgang and a stop at St. Wolfgang with beautiful scenery. The stop at St. Wolfgang could be lengthened.

Laura L

Since we had taken the Original Sound of Music tour the local operator suggested we change the tour as this one would be a duplicate. He convinced us to take the Bavarian Mountain Tour. Which was disappointing. We spent an hour in a town while we waited for those who were on the Salt Mine Tour. Most of the day was spent on the bus outside of the 1 hour wait. The City Tour ran late and was in a van which you couldn't see out of the windows and then the Bavarian bus left without us so we had to be driven to catchup to the tour.

Parimal S

Salzburg city tour was useless. Guide was servicing both German and English speaking tourist. She was talking too fat and we could hardly understand anything she said. This was inspite of asking her to slow down. Monuments would pass by after she was done telling us about them so we did not kno which monument she was taking about. As far as lake and Mountain trip is concerned, it was good.
