Full description

Visit the hometown of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart on a full-day tour from Munich. Travel by train and in the imperial city, visit his place of birth (optional), his residence, the streets he walked, and the cafés he drank in.

Salzburg is also one of the most popular set-jetting destinations in the world for one simple reason, “The Sound of Music.” Visit sites you will remember from the silver screen such as the beautiful Mirabelle Gardens where Julie Andrews and the children were filmed singing “Do-Re-Mi.” An expert guide will take you on a 2-hour train ride from Munich to Austria. You will be provided with a map and get a 1.5-hour orientation tour through the major sites. 

Explore one of the finest preserved medieval old towns in Europe, crisscrossed with romantic winding shopping streets and venerable market places adorned with outstanding architectural monuments of the later baroque era.

See piazzas and fountains, the stunning Domkirche Cathedral, pleasure gardens, palaces, and churches, monasteries and catacombs, and confectionaries and patisseries. You will also go to the oldest restaurant on the continent. You will then have 3 hours to explore the city for yourself, before meeting up for the return journey.

During your free time, you can visit the breathtaking 900-year-old fortress Festung Hohensalzburg, the magnificent edifice that dominates the city's skyline, itself framed by the spectacular encirclement of mountains stretching into the horizon.

    Maxine was such a great guide! She is so knowledgeable about Salzburg history and took us to a bunch of cool spots. Our first visit to Salzburg would not have been as great without her. The day trip went by super fast for being a 9-10 hour journey. I definitely recommend this trip to other travelers!

    I spent two weeks in Europe and rented an apartment in Prague for the duration. From Prague, I caught trains to Budapest, Munich, Füssen, Terezin and Salzburg which was a last minute decision. Of everything I saw and did, this Salzburg trip was by far my favorite. Our guide was amazing but I forgot her name. In Salzburg, I had time to do some shoe shopping, had a fantastic lunch with new friends and saw the things I wanted to see.

    Great guide, friendly, articulate, knowledgable. Franz Schepa was awesome! Imparted great information on history. He gave good advice on restaurants, shopping and most important time management to make most of the day. He took great care of the group and like a good shepherd kept everyone informed and. comfortable. We travel often and this was a refreshing improvement on tour guides. Great trip to a beautiful charming city with wonderful old city with upper scale Christmas Markets, shopping and restaurants in the old town. Frans Schepa was a true professional a pleasure to enjoy the tour with him.
