      Great full-day trip to Salzburg
      Wonderful day trip with Joseph. We met at the indicated meeting point and left promptly on time. It was indeed a small group of just 8 of us. On the way from Vienna to the lake region, after about a 2-hour drive, we stopoed at a small but clean and comfortable truck stop restaurant, with good service and fine choices for either breakfast or lunch; it was a 45 minute stop. The drive and 2 stops around the lake were great, as the views are spectacular. Joseph did a great job explaining where we were and lots of other info about Vienna, the region, and a little history. The tour in Salzburg was just enough to get a taste of all that there's to do. We spent about 3.5 hrs on the ground in Salzburg. All in all, it was a great full-day trip.

      Beautiful views, culture and Sound of Music sights
      Great trip, with a couple of quick photo stops of beautiful scenery along the way! Salazburg is beautiful, the Mirabell gardens where scenes from Sound of Music were beautiful, and Robert gave a highly detailed explanation of everything on the tour. Wear comfy shoes as the walking tour is about an hour and 45 mins and if it’s sunny bring your sun screen! You then have 2hrs 15 to explore yourself, and do as you please. Robert’s recommendations helped me devise an itinerary of what I wanted to do as we walked around, in my free time I went to the food market and enjoyed sitting in the sun by the river, went to Mozart’s birth place, strolled around the gardens again and visited the wine bar next to them. Another traveller said they went up to the art museum where you can get great views of Salzburg which also looked awesome. The iPads in the back of the mini bus were a great touch to watch Sound of Music on the way back, the drive flew by!

      Great Day and Comfortable Ride!
      We had a fantastic guide for the day (Roy/Michael) and an extremely comfortable ride there and back. We stopped at a great spot along the way for a quick morning bite/coffee and break before our stops along the lake region. The weather wasn't spectacular for one of the views along the way, but we made the best of it... you can't always predict mother nature. In Salzburg, we had a great waking tour that wasn't rushed, and our guide made it very known that if you wanted to go off and do your own thing there were no hard feelings. After the walking tour, we had time for a late lunch at a great restaurant recommended by the guide along the way and then a little shopping. We picked up some amazing gouda cheese at one of the stands we passed on the walking tour. Lots of Sound of Music references along the way in the lake region and Salzburg. It was a great day, and we definitely recommend it!

      Very enjoyable day trip out. Long drive to and fro but the driver/guide Robert was very knowledgeable and made it interesting. Would definitely recommend this.

      Wonderful Experience
      I would like to thank Michael for an amazing tour from Vienna to Salzburg. He was awesome and has great knowledge of the city. He hit all the highlights and let us know the best places to eat and visit. It was very interesting and I enjoyed it very much. If I will have the chance I would gladly repeat it again!

      Great trip!
      Joseph was the tour guide and did a good job driving and narrating. The tour was ok, great sightseeing. Salzburg and surrounding lakes and mountains are amazingingly beautiful. The city itself has alot of history, birthplace of Mozart. Two things i recommend while in Salzburg, the Mozart house museum and sacchar tort.

      Great way to get to Salzburg and see the city
      I recommend this tour, it’s a great way to both get to Salzburg and see the sites along the way and in the city. Our guide Robert was SO knowledgeable about the history of seemingly everything - he could provide details on the landmarks, their history, people involved,etc. Once we got to Salzburg, we had a walking tour of the city which was a great way to see all of the major sites. Then we had some free time to walk around and explore. Admittedly, we saw so much and there was so much to do that it was a bit overwhelming to try to get as much in as possible before heading out.

      You must experience Salzburg
      Beautiful. Enjoyed the spectacular lakes and Vienna woods. This was my first trip to Salzburg and I loved it. A must see. For the price, I think that lunch should have been included. That is what kept me from giving the tour 5 stars.

    We were met by our tour guide Fleming in front of tourist information in Central Vienna. Very easy to find and if you need a taxi this will get reimbursed. Comfortable vehicle.
    Drive out to camp gave us a chance to experience the beauty of the Vienna countryside. Our guide Fleming was extremely knowledgeable and told the history of Vienna and WW1 and WW2 tying it all together in an understandable way. You then watch a 40 minute documentary on the Camp which gives a visual perspective prior to the camp itself.
    On arrival you get a audio guide and move through the camp alone. I preferred this to an accompanying guide as you can spend reflective time in quiet areas. The tour ends in a modern and excellently curated area with very detailed information.
    Fleming took us down to the quarry as the Stairs of Death have been closed to the public due to safety reasons.
    My 13 year old daughter managed this tour well though there is a part in documentary that is very graphic.

    On the way home we stopped for lunch which is not included in the tour.
    In my view if you have the time this tour is a must to understand more fully the history of Austria. Thanks Fleming for sharing your knowledge.

    Car from Vienna to Mauthausen camp. Appr 2 hr drive. Was given audioguide upon arrival. Went thrue the whole camp. There are several statues from different groups that ended up as prisoners here. Eventhough I have visited other concentration camps I ask myseld how tjings ended up like this. Well worth a visit. After the camp we had lunch before we hit the road again.

    The Mauthausen visit was excellent in every respect. On transportation, the small bus provided for a group of about 12 was quite comfortable and would have been so even if full. On guides: first, the tour leader as such was most helpful and most informative; second, the camp guide was perfect, a local person with most helpful material and reflections. On the visit, a full three hours, two hours of guided walking and one hour for individual wandering. The site is decidedly worth a visit for anyone interested in this historical period. I liked the many memorial monuments erected by nations with citizens confined to this camp. Afterwards, on the way back, there is a stop for lunch, not included in the price, at a very pleasant restaurant. An experience that I would highly recommend.

    My wife and I enjoyed our day trip to Mauthausen. We learned so much, it was eye opening to see the evils that have taken place in this world. It was a smaller group than we thought, there was a total of 8 of us. Joseph was our driver and gave us a lot of information about Austria. We stopped for lunch on the way back at an Austrian restaurant which was good! If you’re in Vienna and want to tour a concentration camp, we definitely recommend this one.

    The tour was a small group and traveled in a van with a very capable guide/driver. It’s about an hour and a half from Vienna so very doable in a day. The camp itself offered an eye opening opportunity to learn about man’s inhumanity to man. I’ve visited Dachau outside of Munich and thought I already knew a lot about the Nazi concentration camps so I was surprised when I learned even more. The area where the camp is located is so beautiful and calm, it provides a sharp contrast to the horrific existence behind the walls and in the quarry down below. Good reminder of “Never Again” during our own troubled times.

    Very informative tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and detailed in his explanation and insights into this somber place. I was surprised at how well preserved and intact a lot of the camp was.
    If you visit in the fall or winter check the weather and dress warm. This place is atop a hill and if the wind blows it can get cold, you are outside for a good portion of the tour.

    This was a very impactful tour for me. The drive was great, the driver was very informative but the best was that I was able to tour the camp on my own with audio guide. I was able to spend as much time as I wanted in each part. Great tour

    This is about two hours from Cesky krumlov by bus from cesky krumlov station. Well worth a visit while you are in the area. It is Totally Free of charge. I found it a very peaceful place Despite the horrific historic past. Be prepared to walk up a steep hill before you go to their by bus.

    Hi Compass815207, our day-trip to Mauthausen Concentration Camp is a round trip by bus from Vienna. But I agree, it is worth a visit, regardless of how you get there and from where!

    Extremely moving and informative experience. Josef, our guide did a very good job of providing context on the drive from Vienna to Mauthausen. We had plenty of time to properly explore the camp itself at our own pace. Travel to and from was very comfortable and relaxed. Not an easy day given the subject matter but the tour was really well done. Highly recommend!

    I’d like to say this was an managing tour, but that seems weird when you take into account the atrocities that happened here. Whilst I could only imagine the horrors that took place, it puts our lives into perspective & helps to understand what we have gained from those that lost their lives. The tour itself was great & our driver was knowledge. He even dropped us back to our hotel after the trip.
    If you are looking for an activity to really get you thinking & feeling, this is for you. See where so many lost their lives for the freedom that we all enjoy.
