    Great time with the excellent guides and drivers on a couple of tours. The first tour was to the Eagles nest and Berchtesgaden with a great guide who never stopped smiling. Sadly I forgot his name. He was knowledgeable and funny and the driver was a real character. It was a glorious day but even if we hadn’t got the good weather I think we would have still really enjoyed it. The day ran like clockwork and Panorama tours got us up there before the crowds so we got great photos and didn’t feel overcrowded. It felt like we had enough time in each place. The second was the Sound of music tour. For anyone who loves the film please go. You get real insights into the real story as well as the Hollywood version. The tour guide Brigitte and our driver Ferdinand were engaging and helpful. She had actually met some of the family members and is a font of knowledge, as well as being a good singer. You get to visit locations from the film and engage in singing and bringing out your inner Von Trapp by singing along on the coach. We were more enthusiastic than talented but had a great time. The coaches are comfortable and the staff they employ are all about giving you the best time. I thoroughly recommend this company.

    For the „who was with you“ there’s not really an option that applies so for context, I am a 30 y.o. American gal who relocated to Vienna 3 years ago and although I’ve been living in this amazing country these years, I unfortunately haven’t had the chance to experience too too much of Salzburgerland until just this year. Today, I took my parents who are visiting me from OHIO (😁) on a daytrip to Salzburg stadt so we could explore together. We had decided spontaneously while on the train from Vienna to book this tour and couldn’t be happier with the decision; Now Salzburg & the Salzkammergut region in general are already beautiful and breathtaking areas on their own - but what truly made the experience unforgettable is our new friend „Leo Leopold“ (our tour guide on the Lakes/Mountains segment) Incredibly knowledgeable, charismatic, and engaging, he took a van full of people from the US, the UK and Poland and was able to truly make it feel like a catered experience to each of us individually. We laughed and learned a lot while taking in the amazing landscape - never once a dull or silent moment. Thank you for a great day - will definitely be back for a Christmas tour come December 😄

    Leopold was our tour guide yesterday and it was such a fun memorable day. He made the tour so lovely and there was never a dull moment. He explained everyrhing to us in english and deutsch! About the history of the place and where we are going and what to expect. The funny thing is we used to live in San Francisco but now we live in Germany and he used to work in Sf as well back in the days, so that made the tour more fun because we had a lot to talk about and had something in common. After our boat tour of the wolfgangsee, he showed us a litle bit of the city and that was very nice of him to do! Overall we were so glad we booked this tour and so glad that we got him as our guide! He‘s very energetic, so much fun and a nice guy!!

    I recently took a brief trip to Austria, where I spent 3 days in Salzburg. Salzburg is in a beautiful location and has a myriad of excursions to offer to guests. The first excursion I chose to undertake was Lakes and Mountains, a 4-hour tour that takes the guest on a comfortable coach to the lake district outside Salzburg. Lake Wolfgang is only around 50 kms from Salzburg and therefore easily achievable even on a half-day tour. The tour leaves Salzburg at 2pm and meanders past Hof bei Salzburg where it passes by the Red Bull headquarters that have a stunning sculpture in front of the building, then travels past Lake Fuschl to St. Gilgen on Lake Wolfgang, where guests board a boat that takes them to the famous village of St. Wolfgang. Not everybody knows that St. Gilgen has its own claim to fame; it is the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s mother, and also the place where Mozart’s sister Maria Anna “Nannerl” lived for a good part of her life, after marrying the magistrate of St. Gilgen. The scenery in this part of the world is stunning in every weather and I was lucky enough to see part of it on three consecutive days with different weather conditions. The Salzkammergut, which this area belongs to, has the clearest lakes that make for beautiful photographs and, with the backdrop of the mountains, are a nature lovers’ paradise. Hiking, fishing, boating, swimming or even paragliding are all part of the activities offered around the lakes. After a leisurely 45 minute boat trip, guests get to St. Wolfgang, where coach and driver have meanwhile arrived and wait for them to conduct a brief exploration tour on foot around the village and into the pilgrimage church with its famous gothic winged altarpiece by artist Michael Pacher, before allowing guests some time at leisure to explore the town, do some shopping or, if they wish, enjoy a coffee or ice cream on one of the many viewing terraces. The most famous one of all is without a doubt the White Horse, “Weisses Rössl”, which was the setting of the operetta with the same name that was produced in Germany in the 1930’s. The area is rich in history, due to it having experienced a very prosperous time several centuries ago, when the salt mines were in operation. Remnants of the salt mining era are visible everywhere. After an all too brief time on the shores of Lake Wolfgang, the tour returns to Salzburg via another scenic route that passes Krottensee, Hüttenstein Castle and Lake Mondsee. Salzburg Panorama Tours conduct this tour and many others on a regular schedule. Normally the tours run every day, but under the current circumstances with fewer visitors to the area as a result of covid-19, there may be days when not every tour is offered, so do check with the booking office before making plans. The norm is that tours run with 40-seater coaches, however, at the current time, minibuses that can accept up to 9 people run instead, in full compliance with social distancing rules and mandatory face coverings. On the tour I participated in, there were only one couple and our guide Richard on the coach apart from me. If you are flexible with dates or have other tours that you would like to book, something can be found to enhance your stay in this beautiful area.

    This is so Not my Bag. but I went with good friends just hoping to come out alive. I was really surprised. HG the bus driver and Antonio the guide were super professional, very entertaining and really interesting! This tour was really well run, very enjoyable, and you can buy champers on the bus. Definitely worth it.

    The city tour is only one hour and is way too short to appreciate this magnificent city, however the trip to the lakes, especially the visit of St. Wolfgang and the crossing of the lake by boat is definitely worth it. Both guides were knowledgeable and eager to provide information.

    This was a bus tour out to Hallstatt. We stopped to take photos as some other lakes. It was suppose to be a guided tour in English but instead it was half English and half German which got confusing and we missed out on things along the way. The guide didn’t give a lot of information on the way out or back. He did get tickets for us on the funicular but failed to mention that we had an hour wait to get back down and so we didn’t get to see the town square. Very disappointed in the tour but not with the wonderful scenery.

    Had a long weekend here following my granddaughter's school choir trip. Didn't expect anything much but instead throughly enjoyed the stay. Beautiful setting, clean and fine buildings and squares. Plenty of restaurants and cafes and good shopping too. Easy access to the lakes which are well worth a visit. Zell am Zee etc. Picturesque villages and good open air places to eat. Recommended
