Wonderful day in the mountains

Reviewed by: Sara, 2019/09/14

The trip was excellent!!
I highly recommend it.
The mountains are so relaxing and calming. A vision of beauty.
The village of St Gilgen is so sweet. The people are modest and very friendly.
The boat ride was a little tough.
we (the tour bus group) were the last ones on the boat . They had already filled the boat with other passengers,so by the time we got there, there weren't any seats left. This posed a problem because my elderly mother was traveling with me. She had to sit on one of the steps on the boat leading to the deck because she wasn't able to stand for 45 minutes.
I wish I had known about the walking up the hill from the church after the boat ride. We had an hour or so in the town, then meet at the church to go back to the bus. Having never been there, the trip back to the bus was a good sized incline which made it tough for my mom. We made it but everyone was back on the bus before us and waiting. I would recommend bringing a Walker if someone has trouble walking inclines at a steady pace. Or not staying in town as long as the other guests and starting up the hill sooner. Just ket your tour guide know you are starting to go up early.

Everything was precisely as described.
A beautiful tour. A guide who provided specific information without overdoing it.
The boat trip was the highlight of the tour.
Highly recommend it and can be done as part of a one-day trip to Salzburg from Vienna if you plan well. Leave Vienna on an early train (we went on a 6 am train to spend about 3-4 hours touring the city before the 2pm tour. We returned to Vienna on a 8 pm train.

We would have needed to spend some more time in one of the towns visited. We had less than half an hour to enjoy the beautiful town. I think this town was called St. Wolfgang.

It gave us a chance to see the wonderful mountains and countryside in the area around Salzburg. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful and highlighted all the many sights of interest. We enjoyed our Lakes and Mountains tour so much that we booked another tour for the next day! To be thoroughly recommended.
