This tour was amazing! Great tour guide, the onboard entertainment & sing a long was fab. Had the best ever Strudle on one of the stops and visiting the many stops on the tour brought back happy memories of watching the film with family in years gone by. 100% recommend this tour!

Very knowledgable guide. Just wish we could have got nearer to places but they are privately owned so not possible. Great tour of Saltzburg though

Tour guide was great. It was great so see the sites but wish that we were able to see some of them more closely. Not the tour group's fault. Some of the buildings are privately owned. I loved being in the van with all the super fans and singing all the songs. It was super cheesy but that's what I wanted! I didn't realize that we would leave Salzburg and get to travel up in the mountains. This was a great way to see a little of the surrounding area as well as see Sound of Music sights.

Highly recommend this tour. It doesn’t take up your entire day so you can have time after to walk around or relax before dinner. Our tour guide Antonio was great. Very knowledgeable about where and how the Sound of a music was shot in and outside of Salzburg.

4 Hours well spent fun and insight into the wonderful film that most of us have seen many many times. Ivo the driver and April the guide were great. Very cheesy, but it added to the fun. One thing, that I do think is necessary to relay to April, the guide is, that she omitted to inform us that Von Trapp’s first wife was English. This was not mentioned, and I overheard another guide. An important factor I think. Any way, great afternoon was had by all. No need to do again. Laura Li
