    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 visit the quaint lakeside village of St.Gilgen, best known for its appearance in 'The Sound of Music.'

    Arrive in Salzburg, where you embark on a leisurely 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 with plenty 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.

    Marcus did an excellent day trip to Salzburg. He had a good sense of humor and was talkative to the group. Stopped along the way for both WC breaks and take photos of the beautiful countryside. Stopped in the charming village of St. Gilgen for a while before arriving in

    Hi Bill B, thanks for the great feedback and for recommending our tour! We'll gladly forward your praise to Markus and Naomi. We are happy that you enjoyed the countryside and the stop in St.Gilgen - it's one of the perks of the small group size compared to larger group tours! Hope to see you back in Vienna one day! Marlies & the Vienna à la carte tea,

    Dear travelrodent, thank you for taking the time to write a review on TripAdvisor. We are sorry that you were sent the wrong group photo at first. We found out about 10 minutes after sending you the photo and immediately rectified the mistake. You are saying that your guide gave too much information and was not personable (you are also saying that he is a very nice person). While each of our guides and drivers have their own individual style, they always try to adapt to the needs of each guest and to present their knowledge in a captivating and fun way. Julio has only received excellent customer feedback so far but obviously he was not the perfect fit for you that day. We apologise for that because we want each of our guests to have the best experience possible. It is quite rare that guests say that they would have liked to spend LESS time in the Lake Region, particularly in St. Gilgen. More often we hear that guests would have preferred to spend more time in the Lake Region (AND in Salzburg). The itinerary has been designed and fine-tuned based on customer feedback. We try to maximise our guests' precious time and to find the perfect balance between all the beautiful sights on the tour. Based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback of our guests we are doing this quite successfully. We are sorry that you did not find the tour worthwhile. The higher price point of our tour compared to other options is explained by the small group size of our tour. We strictly limit this tour to 8 people, ensuring a semi-private atmosphere and making the experience much more flexible, relaxed and enjoyable compared to coach tours with groups of 50 or more. This advantage naturally comes at a price. Thank you again for leaving your review. Your feedback is very important to us. Best regards! Ulrich & the Vienna à la carte team

    We enjoyed it very much. Saw the mountain lakes in the region and some sights from the sound of music. I am big fan of this movie!!! We got to learn about the history on the way and saw the movie nights way back. I left raincoats in the van and of course it poured down rain.
