Many of the sights within Salzburg are fairly central and you can walk between them (old town, the fortress, Mirabell Gardens, Mozart houses.) As long as you don't mind walking, I wouldn't get any type of bus pass. If you are in Salzburg for 2 nights and you are already taking an SOM tour, I wouldn't take another tour. I would spend the rest of the time seeing sights on my own. If you are interested in it, in the evening a good thing to do is attend a Mozart concert or dinner concert. I have been in Salzburg that time of year and the weather was great-sunny and probably in the upper 70s F most days-but you can't predict what will happen this year. It could be much warmer or cooler and/or more rain.

I agree with Leigh's reply. The salt mine tour is different and interesting, but I would not choose it over having time to see Salzbug pretty well.
