Disappointing
Judy_F

This expresses less than stellar. The “River cruise “ was a 40 minute out and back boat ride on glass topped boat. No air, no open windows. It was 90 degrees and it was like sitting in a sauna. The dinner was good, but rushed. The concert seemed unorganized. The musicians were wonderful, but logistics were bad. Many many stairs and no access for handicapped

Good event worth the cost. Food is adequate but not excellent. Even the dessert which is the Salzburg staple was deflated and inedible. Musical part of the event was very good

We easily exchanged our viator tickets next to the cruise ride. The cruise was a great way to admire the interesting parts of the city from the river whilst boat operators also explained the city and its history. Cable car to fortess was around 40-seconds to also enjoy the city view and fortress. In the panoramic restaurant, we unfortunately had a terrible service from the waiter, he rushed us to choose our drinks and food. We also asked for mineral non-sparkling water which never arrived. But we noticed him being nice to other guests. We guess he just doesn't like us asians or whatever reason? But we ignored it so we can just try to enjoy the day. Fortunately, the view and food were great, but something we wouldn't want to go back to since we could just enjoy the view around the fortress and have delicuous food elsewhere to avoid the terrible waiter. Music concert was a great way to end the night. Talented musicians and beautiful concert room on top of the fortress during sunset with sparkling wine to enjoy Mozart's works.

At the start we arrived at the river cruise point but due to the heavy rain on the previous day it was cancelled. We were immediately offered another day or refund. We took the refund and went on to the furnicular railway to go up to the fort. We had extra time to look around the huge fort. The meal was delicious and the waiting staff very attentive and efficient. A great experience with awesome views over Salzburg. On to the concert and that was superb, just as you might imagine. Just one thing here is that anyone with mobility issues note that to get to the concert thier are numerous flights of stairs . And if you need the loo then it is two flights down again from the concert. For most people this would not detract from the experience. It all finished approx 10:30 and then some brilliant night viewing on the way back down to the city Excellent trip 5 star.

Dinner - The view is unmatched and the food was excellent. Concert – beautiful music and a memorable setting. However, we thought the boat ride was disconnected from the rest of the evening, a hot and stuffy start.

Needs better organization and planning

The River Cruise is equivalent to a tug boat with chairs inside and it goes up the Salzrach River several hundred yards and turns around. The river boat tour operators, over a microphone on the boat, are telling us about the different landmarks on each side of the river as the boat is moving, but unfortunately there were several kids yelling and playing in their seats, and most of us could not hear a thing the tour operator was saying. The other tour operator should have asked the parents of the kids to quiet down so we could hear about the historical aspects of the boat ride. After all this was Salzburg, not Disneyland. After the boat ride is over, we were instructed, from a very poorly diagramed map of Salzburg, that was handed out from a boat tour operator, how to get up to the Fortress for our VIP dinner. It took us over an our from the boat to find the Fortress when it should have only taken 10-15 minutes. The boat tour operators left us, on our own, to find the Fortress and it would have been infinitesimally less stressful experience, if they escorting us up to the Fortress. A boat tour operator was up there when we finally made it to the Fortress for dinner. Having it been over an hour late and arriving at the Fortress restaurant by 7:45 pm, we had to rush through a beautiful view and nice VIP dinner so as to not miss the start of the Mozart Concert, which started at 8:30 pm. I thought it was very irresponsible of the Tour Operators to assume that everyone would know where the Fortress Funicular was, that would bring us up to the Fortress, especially when there were very few to no signs along the way, on were it actually was, which is the fault of the Town of Salzburg. If the tour operators had better organization and cared about the planning of the Mozart Concert and VIP Dinner at the Fortress with River Cruise, it would have been a wonderful Mozart Concert and dining experience, but it turned out to be a very stressful and disappointing experience. So, I would not recommend this tour until they reorganize it.

The whole trip was perfect. From the boat ride, the dinner then concert we had a magical experience. Just make sure you know where to go after the boat trip as it is about 20 minute walk under your own steam. You see part of the old town en route so we’ll worth it

Great Salzburg highlights experience
Udita_B

Worth noting that this is not a guided tour. This is just a combined ticket with four separate bits to it (boat, funicular, dinner, concert). No guide talking you through any of it our taking you from one spot to the other. Having said that, we had a wonderful time. Everything was delightful and the concert was lovely.

A lovely evening in Salzburg

A really lovely evening. Boat ride was fun, dinner at the fortress was good and THE VIEWS!! The concert was enchanting, excellent musicians. I went with my 94 year old friend. There is a 10-15 walk from boat to tram that takes you up to the fortress. Taxis and Ubers can take you if you are unable to walk that far. There are a couple flights of stairs once at the fortress.

Would have rated higher, as everything was very nice, but the information on transferring from the cruise to the dinner and dinner to concert was not clear and we were left guessing what to do after I had spent a good deal of time trying to figure it all out. Enjoyable time, just know you are on your own to get to each venue.

I have gone in dozens of tours. Every time In the past there was a tour guide to meet you, and on the most part my sure you know the procedures. This did not happen on this tour. I was very confused on where to go, and I got lost a couple times. If there was not some kind people to answer some basic directional questions, I would off missed a good portion of the tour. However, what I saw I totally enjoyed. I hope this is corrected. I hope someone calls me about this. 305-790-2762 Roy Zemlock

Superb Concert with dinner & Cruise beforehand
Caroline_S

Excellent. Delightful late afternoon river cruise with lively, fun & experienced Captain & First Mate..! Great explanation of Salzburg River bank history, both from our Captain & recorded sound track. Beverages + wine & beer available for purchase. Easy instructions for short but energetic walk afterwards up to funicular, which took us to the Hohensalzburg Fort, where we had a very good dinner. Not rushed, the. After dinner straight to the concert hall in the fort. Incredible rooms and amazing acoustics where the Mozart Concert was to be held. Incredible musicians. A superb evening all around. Thank you for incorporating such a great event together.
