Begin this daylong experience when a private driver and a certified "Austria Guide" pick you up at your Salzburg hotel between 9am-10am.

Visit a viewpoint above the town of St. Gilgen for panoramic vistas, and take a picture of the town where Mozart’s mother was born. Head down into the town, and have the option to take a boat ride on the Wolfgangsee or ride the train up the Schafberg mountain (between May–October) for an additional expense.With a separate guide and driver, you'll have plenty of personalized attention and can ask plenty of questions about your surroundings. Your guide will provide a few example itineraries with plenty of options to choose from, so you can design a personalized tour that covers all the sights and attractions that interest you. The tour concludes after 8 hours with a drop-off back at your Salzburg hotel.
