Salzburg City Tour - On the Traces of Mozart
Really really informative and a tour that one should definitely not miss! Includes all that one doesn’t know or commonly hear about Mozart family One of the few places that actually explained properly to use the self guided tour technology properly

Salzburg City Tour - On the Traces of Mozart
Our guide had to do double duty by driving us safely in the snow while pointing out the sights. He also had a great sense of humor. It was a good introduction to the city but because of the snow it was difficult to see all that he was pointing out.

Salzburg City Tour - On the Traces of Mozart
My wife and I were the only clients at the time of our Traces tour. Yet the tour operator took us on the tour and we thought we received extra attention and information because we had his undivided attention. The operator went out of his way trying to make us feel as special guests.

Salzburg City Tour - On the Traces of Mozart
We were fortunate to be the only 2 people on the tour on this day, and Bettina the tour guide let us sit in the front of the minibus, which made the whole tour feel a lot more friendly and personal. Bettina was very friendly, spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable about Salzburg and the sights. The tour is only 2 hours but gives a very good overview of the sights and attractions the city has to offer. Would recommend this as an ideal 1st or 2nd day tour to get your bearings and become acquainted with the City.

Salzburg City Tour - On the Traces of Mozart
Thank you to this tour company for crafting me a special one-person tour since my boat came into port that morning in Linz late, causing me to miss the earlier train to Salzburg, causing me to miss my 11 a.m. tour time. But the tour company sent me along with my own special tour guide who helped me salvage what was left of this tour. Viator and companies who work with Viator have never let me down customer-service wise. That's why I continue booking tours with them wherever I travel. Thanks, Viator.

Mozart in Salzburg

The iconic composer is everywhere in Salzburg. Mozart’s face adorns postcards, souvenirs, and restaurant menus—you can even buy Mozart ice cream. After visiting Mozart Residence, fans can also tour Mozart’s Birthplace—now a museum that offers insight into his humble beginnings; pose for photos by Mozart Monument in Mozart Square; take a walking tour of the many sites associated with Mozart; or visit during the annual Mozart Week, hosted by Mozarteum Foundation. Another unforgettable experience is attending a Mozart concert, and there are options for orchestral recitals and dinner concerts held in intimate venues around the city.
