Make your own way to Salzburg, where we'll transfer you to your hotel. Get to know your travelling companions over a drink.

Day 2 – Salzburg

Today we include a tour of 'Sound of Music' city Salzburg - one of Europe's best-preserved historic cities. The centre has hardly changed since the times of Mozart. The famous Austrian composer was born here and during our tour we'll visit his birthplace, now a museum dedicated to his works. This evening we'll enjoy dinner in the hotel, after which you can join an optional Mozart in Residence concert.

Day 3 – Salzkamergut, Hallstatt, & Bad Ischl

Salzkammergut, or the Austrian Lake District, is our destination today with our first stop St Gilgen, on the shores of Lake Wolfgang, where we'll enjoy a boat trip. Next, we visit Hallstatt, a UNESCO-listed village which sits at the base of a mountain. On our way back to Salzburg we'll pass through the spa town of Bad Ischl. We'll gather for dinner in the hotel.

Day 4 – St Florian, Wachau Valley & Vienna

We'll head to Vienna today, where we stay for three nights. En route we'll visit the parish of St Florian, renowned for the Augustinian Monastery boys' choir, the Florianer Sängerknaben. We'll enter the monastery and at the end of our tour we'll enjoy a live recital. Next, we head to the Wachau Valley for a scenic Danube cruise, before arriving in Vienna.

Day 5 – Vienna

Today we'll discover Vienna's highlights as we explore with a Local Guide. Highlights include the famous Ringstrasse – a smart boulevard lined with fine buildings, including the State Opera and the Hofburg Palace.
