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 pick up point was for the return - felt like we learnt a lot in a short time without being overloaded. There were only about 8 of us on this trip which went in a van rather than the usual large coaches, this meant we had more time to explore and less time waiting for everyone to return (although we were all on time).

The scenery in this area is stunning, the lake against the sky on such a clear day looked amazing - we were very jealous of all the people staying locally who were swimming, boating or otherwise enjoying their time in and around the water.

Was actually a shame the trip didn't last longer as it would've been nice to enjoy a meal outdoors (rather than just an ice cream before going back) but it fit nicely within the time we had left on our last day of the trip.

Would definitely recommend this tour!

Unfortunately the service provided by the people in the meeting points is rude and unhelpful. I have lived in Europe for many years now and what I experienced today was embarrassing. My parents are over 70 years old we bought two tours.

First problem, the tours ended up being back to back. No where in the info section of their website they mentioned this. Those of know who are my parent's age or who have family members that age will understand that this is an important detail. They need to rest their legs and they need frequent bathrooms breaks. Had information been provided about this, I would have booked differently.

Second problem, the buses are not accomodating people with special requirements. Although we did see seats reserved, the guide was not forthcoming about my mother taking one (even though she uses a walking cain and visibly has difficulty walking). Again, no information as to the tours not being friendly.

Third problem, the buses don't have bathrooms. The tour is 4 hours!!! So, when the company allows back to back booking for a tour combo they created themselves AND doea not provide bathrooma in their facilities (in the ground or buses) you'd think they give 3 minutes inbetween tours, right? NO! they threthen me to leave us there... to which I replied, PLEASE DO! I truly couldn't care less to participate on something which has so little customer attention and service. Seems like your employees forget how the company makes money to pay their salary. My mom, however, managed to get us into the bus and here we are. My dad, really need to go tobthe bathroom and the next stop is no until 40mins.

Please, before you answer something like: "we had a full bus and we couldn't keep the waiting" please know we arrived from your previous tour, which you scheduled that way, literally 1 min before this tour was supposed to start; the coffee shop they went to was across the street, and they were back literally 2 mins after the starting time. Once we were sitting, we still had to wait at least 5 additional mins for whatever the guide was doing. By the way, the coffee shop was closed since it is a national holiday today, that's why my dad still needs to use the bathroom.

Anyway, thank you for messing up our trip. I feel like I paid you to make our day horrible, which makes me an idiot!

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 and when I asked the driver to speak up he didn't really care. He drove to the ferry and picked us up at the other end, that all worked well. Yet in hindsight I could've arranged that independently on the buses. Then because one of the other passengers needed to return to the station to catch a train, the last part of the day was a mad rush to get back in time, like it was our problem. Soooo not worth the money.

The turquoise color of lake water is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. Boat trip by the lake is sensational. Beautiful views of the mountains. The small town of Saint Wolfgang looks like an enchanted fairy tale town. Friendly and humorous guide
