      I was the only signed up for the tour so they couldn’t carry it out. They only told me when I turned up for it on that day. I was offered the ‘Sound of Music’ tour instead I accepted it though what I wanted was to see the lakes David, our guide on the Sound of Music’ tour is exceptional in his dedication and capability. He made the tour 5 STAR!

      This tour has a boat ride in summer its beautiful. In winter because of the snow conditions the boat ride isn't possible but they show everything in a vehicle and stop at some place where there are lovely sights to take pics and the guide gives information about all the province including the history, geography and culture. Really great experience.

      A relaxing trip

      The lakes and mountains are not super beautiful as compared to some other places that I've been to. But the quietness of the Wolfgangsee area in Autumn still worths a visit. I could have a nice cup of coffee in the 40-minute boat trip. This is a relaxing and enjoyable trip. Also, thanks our tour guide for the clear introduction of the city and the lake area.
