    Your Guided Group Holiday To Salzburg & Vienna 

    Join us on this 7-night holiday to two of Europe’s most beautiful cities, Salzburg and Vienna. Salzburg, Austria’s fourth-largest city and the birthplace of Mozart will be our home for the first 3 nights of the trip. An exceptionally pretty city, we’ll explore Salzburg’s Baroque architecture, manicured parks and green areas on a guided tour. For the second part of our holiday we’ll stay in Vienna, Austria’s illustrious capital. In Vienna, we’ll take another walking tour to discover its luxurious palaces, magnificent buildings and rich history. This trip also provides us with the opportunity to venture outside of the cities and into the Danube Valley, where we’ll get to take in some of the gorgeous scenery of the countryside. You’ll also have plenty of leisure time in both cities to explore based on your interests, with tips from our expert guide.

    Please note: Tours departing Edinburgh in 2024 have an 8 night duration (3 nights in Salzburg and 5 in Vienna on a bed and breakfast basis)
