My daughter is a huge fan of the SoM. So while in Vienna we decided to go to Salzburg to do the tour. We weren't disappointed. Went to many locations and enjoyed being in the Austrian countryside. David was our guide and he was informative and fun. So glad we did it.

Our guide, Peter, was fantastic but I was disappointed that we couldn't see everything. A lot of sites were pointed to us from the bus, and the mountain that features in the beginning of the movie was no where to be seen. I did the Salt Mines and Bavarian Mountains tour the day before and thought it was a lot... More

Having travelled from Vienna to Salzburg just to do the SoM tour it was worth the effort. The tours are very well organised and you see a lot of magnificent scenery on the journey. The guides are very knowledgable and make the 4 hour trip a lot of fun. Highly recommended if you have seen the movie.

I'm a big fan of the Sound of Music and enjoyed seeing the key sets and places featured in memorable scenes in real life. Due to the high volume of snow visiting the gardens/steps featured in Do Re Me was a let down and while it's no one's fault be aware that most of the park is blocked off. In... More

Normally I write positive reviews or have positive comments to say about travel experiences, but honestly if you wish to be hoarded on to a bus like sheep whilst having the theme song and many others blasted in your ears for 4 hours then please cough up the obscene amount of money for this tour. Not to mention that you... More

Our guide was Peter. Very funny. Ok it is quite rushed at times and as mentioned elsewhere you cannot see all the sites in the movie, as many are privately owned. The Gazebo is in a different location to where it was in the movie. The Lakes district was beautiful and scenic. The church at Mondsee where the Wedding Scene... More

The tour was led by David and he is an extremely charged and hospitable guide who made our tour wonderful!! It's an absolute must since you get to see a lot of beautiful Country side Austria besides reliving the great movie again... di watch the movie before you take the tour... it would help.

If you're inclined to enjoy group tours with a guide in the hop-on-off style then this is a good tour for you. Guide had relevant and interesting information about salzburg in general, as well as the sound of music. The tour only has 3 stops, though it is 4 hours long - stopping at hellbrun to see the gazebo, a... More
