This tour is a great tour, especially for solo travellers.
This tour is a great tour, especially for solo travellers, Peter was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable about the salzburg and mondsee area. You will get to visit the sites where they filmed the Sound of Music and enjoy the beautiful scenery that is Austria. Overall it was a great experience and I would definitely recommend you go on this tour if you have the time.

Mostly satisfied.
Nov 2019
Pick up and drop off at our hotel was seamless and our driver, Peter was great. We knew it would be a long drive out, but there were a few stops along the way which broke it up. Our guide in Salzburg was really just okay. We thought we would learn a bit more than we felt we did. We would still recommend, but as with any tour, the guide makes it.

Dec 2019
The positives of this tour are that they pick you up directly at your hotel and drop-you off with no hassle. It is a very long 3 hour drive each way from Vienna to Salzburg with few stops along the way. The car was comfortable with a max of 8 people and our driver was good. I have been on many tours and the price for this was too much. My husband and I expected more information and history about the sights. Very little was told about the Sound of Music and Mozart, just showed us where the places were which we could have found on a map. Austria is a beautiful place and we loved the small villages around Salzburg. If you are staying in Vienna you must do a tour to Salzburg but the larger bus tours are less expensive.

Dear tracyj457, Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. Kindly note that our company organizes small-group tours and this comes at a price. When booking with us, you will not be surprised early morning that you are in a bus traveling with 40 other persons. Please note that with our minivans we take you to areas of the Lake Region that you otherwise would never visit with a large bus day-tour from Vienna to Salzburg. For two reasons: 1. Large buses are not allowed to enter many areas that we show you on the way to Salzburg, incl. sites related to Sound of Music and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. 2. Traveling by a large bus from Vienna to Salzburg is even more time-consuming as by law they have to make a stop every now and then and are slower than minivans. If the drive by the minivan seemed “very long” to you, the drive by a large bus will be even longer. Once you are in the Lake Region and later in Salzburg, you get to see sites related to Sound of Music and Mozart, but we also try to cover other aspects of the area as the Salzburg region offers a lot. If you are looking for the specific Sound of Music tour, you have to take it directly from Salzburg. For more detailed information on certain topics, our Customers are very welcome to ask anytime the driver/guide and also the local expert guide in Salzburg. They will be glad to answer any questions. Thank you once again for leaving us the review. Your feedback is very important to us. Best regards, Balazs White Alligator Tours

Wonderful Day trip to Salzburg
We thoroughly enjoyed this day trip. The ride was comfortable, and we made stops at several lovely small towns on the way to Salzburg. Our driver and tour guide, Peter, was extremely knowledgeable and good company. The guide who guided us within Salzburg was very knowledgeable and personable as well. We saw lovely sights, and Sound of Music fans will be delighted to see places where scenes in the movie were filmed. We highly recommend this tour!

Many thanks white alligator!
Oct 2019
It was a hotel pickup start. Peter was our driver/guide on this fantastic trip to Salzburg and he stopped at many lakes on the way. We stopped at st gilgin too with Peter doing the commentary. 30 min alone time was good and we carried on. Maria handled the Salzburg part well.

The drive was 3HRs one-way and we reached back around 9pm.

I am so happy with this tour and only saddened that I had not spend my entire Vienna schedule with white alligators. I highly recommend this team and their tours!

Small group Vienna to Salzburg - a day to remember!
Aug 2019
Thank you to our wonderful driver and guide Balazs - we had a wonderful day to remember forever!! The tour was exactly as described - lots of beautiful stops in the Austrian Alps and lake region on the way to Salzburg and very interesting information from Balazs along the way. Our guide in Salzburg was Veronika who was equally interesting and informative.
I only wish we could have stayed longer (a few days) in Salzburg! But if you only have a day - as we did - then this gives you a lovely taste of the city and region.
We couldn't have asked for a better day - THANK YOU Balazs and Veronika!!
I have no hesitation recommending White Alligator Tours - nothing was too much trouble :)

Wonderful Tour!
Jul 2019 • Couples
Peter did a wonderful job giving us a tour not only of Salzburg but several stops along the way. He explained the history of the city throughout the drive (which was 3 hours out and 3 hours coming back - long day for him of driving!). He knew some of the best places to stop along the way that were less frequented by tourists yet provided outstanding views of the scenery. Highly recommend!
