The overall experience is wonderful, the sunset views from the fortress are amazing, the dinner was excellent(well worth the additional charge for the”VIP” dinner) and it was fantastic to listen to chamber music at the top of a castle in a room built in the 1600s. The boat ride is not much really, very professional and relaxing but in hindsight would have opted just for the dinner concert and arrived at the fortress early to tour the castle. It’s a great and well run tour.

We are a party of 4; myself and husband, our 16 year old son and my mother. We all enjoyed the whole experience very much and thought it was good value for money. Having never been to Salzburg before it would have been nice to have be pre warned about the uphill walk between the boat drop off point and funicular up to the fortress dinner and concert location. This wasn’t an issue for us but might be a consideration for some. However, the evening was wonderfully musical and memorable.

High quality dinner and stunning views (worth arriving a little early for).
Music was a very talented string quartet with a piece by a pianist. Overall a great experience.
Advise to wear a coat on the river cruise. We had no issues, but anyone with mobility issues should be aware the river cruise is quite a walk from cable car and the events are organised separately.

This was not as enjoyable as it should have been mainly because of the lack of coordination.
WARNING: this is not ONE tour experience, it is three separate activities that are sold as one package. But you get passed from one activity to another with no coordination, multiple tickets, and most importantly no transport from one activity to another.

If you have reduced mobility it is actually a rush to get from one thing to the next.

The boat trip was nice, good info and a good view along the river.
BUT THEN, there was a hike across town to get to the funicular railway up to the castle. Nobody to help you where to go or guide you. You're left to your own devices.
Once at the top there is a queue to get into dinner at the Panorama Restaurant.
This is a conveyor belt of a restaurant but which appears to pay no attention to the fact that people have a concert to get to.
Drinks and food were good but were much delayed arriving so that we ended up having to gobble down our food or we would miss the concert start time.
All through dinner we had to chase up to hurry things along.
Even at the end we had to chase down a waitress in order to settle our check.
Then we had to rush through the castle to get to the concert and only just got there with 5 mins to spare.

The concert was actually delightful.
That made up for the rest of the experience. The rating would have been worse if the concert hadn't been so good.
We were in a bad room when we got there but relaxed with the music.

Not the best of experiences overall - spoilt by a lack of coordination between the three separate elements.

If I was doing it another time I would NOT recommend this combo but would instead just get the tickets for the concert.

This is somewhat misrepresented as a single combined tour. Instead it is tickets to three separate events and you are expected to get yourself from the ship to the funicular and the walk is a bit far if you have mobility issues. This should be stated in the description.

The boat cruise was delightful and the captain was a joy. I was nice to go beyond the city center and see some of the outlying areas.

Dinner was good and the views were amazing.

Getting from the dinner to the concert involved many steps which, again, should have been disclosed. The concert was lovely.

Note: Tours should include approximate walking distance and clear indications of how many steps are involved. Also, there is no tour guide included since these are three separate tickets.

Taken as a last minute opportunity to fill our evening in Salzburg. Absolutely amazing, highly recommend. I would consider this to be a must do. To actually finish your evening with a 2 hrs concert including music from Mozart, in the town he was born in, in a castle that is almost 1000 years old… is incredible!

The tour contents 3 parts without tour guide: boat ride on the river, dinner at restaurant on top of the fortress and concert.
The best part is the view and food from panoramic restaurant. THE concert was good, but no infos on who played on the program. The boat ride is ok, hard to see anything. All views are above but the boat is enclosed.

This experience is a “do it yourself” tour. The riverboat tour was interesting, but nothing we learned on other tours. The dinner was okay - my son did not enjoy his fish. The best part of the tour was the Mozart concert in the fortress. If there are excursions that only include the Mozart concert, I’d book that.

Excellent! The river cruise was a nice way to see Salzburg from a different perspective. The dinner was better than I expected. You pay for your own drinks. We had an excellent table. I’d recommend spending a few extra euros for the VIP experience. The concert was a quaint and overall a beautiful experience in the castle. However, I would have preferred to be seated in the middle rather than the side with the VIP ticket (but it is a small venue so all seats are good). Overall, a wonderful experience.

Enjoyable evening! Be sure to get your boat tickets (paper print outs) @ kiosk. They don’t accept phone QR codes at the entrance to boat. Dinner was just 👌🏻. Mozarts concert was fabulous! Top notch-worth the entire price! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
