Amazing, amazing tour! As huge Sound of Music fans, we were delighted with the entire tour from start to finish. Our tour guide, Dave, kept us entertained with behind-the-scene nuggets, which made the tour all the more enjoyable. This tour brought the movie to life, and we were so excited to finally see the iconic places such as the Von Trapp house, the gazebo (interesting story behind this), and the church where Maria and Captain were married. And not to forget, being able to sing all our favourite tunes on the bus! This was undoubtedly the best part of our time in Salzburg. Highly recommend it to all SOM fans out there!

Peter, our guide, came out of retirement to guide our group and he was fantastic. He was informative and warm. Afterwards he took time to take us through the gardens. Ferdinand, our driver, was welcoming and we felt safe in the giant tour bus as he maneuvered it through small streets and busy intersections. We loved the entire experience.

My wife is an enthusiastic fan. She loved hearing new information on the movie. She also enjoyed watching the film’s locations. We were both surprised by the beautiful lake-scenery near Salzburg and Mondsee (the town in which the wedding scene was filmed). I was touched by my fellow tour companions -they were gladly singing songs of a movie that is almost sixty years old. Alenka was a fine tour guide and our bus driver also was top of the class.

This is one of the best tours we have ever been on. Bridgett was a 15 out of 10 easy. She knew exactly how to bring everything to life. I had waited 4 years to get my Sound of Music tour and this did not disappoint. I would do this again when I get to come back. ❤️❤️❤️👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Mickey, the driver, made some amazing maneuvers in tight spaces. The behind-the-scenes trivia was very interesting. One representative told us to get on the very packed bus, but another said to wait for the next one. We’re glad we did. We had more space. A/C was struggling on a warm June day but Mickey had a cooler full of cold drinks for a reasonable price.

Such a fun day!! The tour guide, Mitch, was fantastic….very entertaining and knowledgeable. We were able to see several sites from the film and we had plenty of time to explore. Loved the sing-a-longs on the bus (which was comfortable and spotless). Great way to spend 5 hours in Salzburg.

Too much time on the bus. Two, instead of four hours, would have been better. While the guide was a nice guy, and knew a lot about the movie, it seemed as if he was not a true fan. Stop talking during songs.
