What to Expect
Meet your guide at a central location in Salzburg and then begin your coach journey toward the Austrian lakes. Along the way, listen to commentary from your guide about the important sights around you, such as Fuschl Castle, which was the former home of royalty before it was transformed into a luxury hotel. In St. Wolfgang, visit the pilgrimage church and see the winged gothic altar (one of the most beautiful painted altar shrines in European art). After this, enjoy a break and refreshment at the White Horse Inn (own expense). During certain months of the year, you can also enjoy a boat ride on Lake Wolfgang to St. Gilgen, the birthplace of Mozart’s mother. Then, get back on the coach and travel past Lake Mondsee and Huttenstein Castle. The tour ends with a return journey to Salzburg.

Leopold (I hope I spelled that right) was a great guide, pointing things out en route to the ferry terminal, at our stop in St Wolfgang and on the way back to Salzburg. He made sure both ourselves and the German speaking passengers were well informed and that we knew where our

This tour was largely disappointing. If you don't get the front seat you can't see anything, there's no legroom (I'm not tall and i had to sit with my knees to the side) and the suspension in the back made for a bumpy ride. I couldn't hear the commentary over the traffic noise
