    In one word: amazing. Worth every cent. Patrick was very friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about this stunning area which he is fortunate to call home. We loved his anecdotes and attendance to answering our questions. Highly recommend this tour as it combines Sound of Music information and beauty of Hallstatt.

    Patrick was amazing!!! Full of knowledge on the Sound of Music, Hallstatt and Austrian culture. It was such a pleasure spending the day with him.

    Patrick and Manford were amazing. We've done many of the cattle bus type tours that are much less expensive but can not go everywhere and leave you at the whim of a brunch of strangers. We chose this private tour to get that personal attention and experience this area at our pace and focus on what interested us. We could not have been more pleased with the entire day's experience. Patrick and our driver Manford knew their stuff and accommodated all of our whims. It is by far the best tour we've ever been on and when we return to this area of Europe, we will definately seek them out for one of their other itineraries. If you are looking for a perfect day of touring this region, you will not be disappointed.

    Patrick was absolutely fantastic. My wife and I had the best day with him as our guide. He was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The tour was great and sites were curated perfectly. Hallstatt was by far the best part of the day and the pictures just cannot do it justice. We would recommend to all of our friends and family.

    Patrick arrived promptly at our hotel to start us off on this private full day tour covering key locations from the Sound of Music as well as Hallstatt. As a Salzburg local, he knew the best places for visitors to appreciate the city’s sights and its connection to the film. He was very friendly and took care to answer our young daughter’s questions throughout the trip. He also drove through the Lake District and Salzburg carefully- perfect for a family with a kid. At the end of the tour he very flexibly dropped us off at a different location and gave us tips to explore the city some more after the tour.

    Review for Patrick If you have fond memories of The Sound of Music movie/ musical and you’d enjoy touring the sites around Salzburg MCM tours is a great option for you and your family Patrick , our guide,was friendly, young and enthusiastic about meeting new people as well as sharing his beloved Salzburg with his tour guests. Patrick had a well planned out itinerary showing us the major Sound of Music “must-sees” yet he customized the day to include sites, stops and interesting facts to keep everyone in our group engaged We had a wonderful 2 hour stop at Halstead where we could explore and relax “on our own”. Our group highly recommends MCM tours and Patrick to anyone who wants to spend the day with a knowledgeable, personable guide who is well prepared to help your day be successful and fun!

    We booked the half day city tour and the sound of music tour and were extremely satisfied with both. We were driven through the countryside with breathtaking views and the mountain roads, learning a lot about the area as well as some German words at the same time. Big thanks to our guide Patrick, for making our trip to Salzburg unforgettable. His ever so jovial and enthusiastic attitude made the tour even more enjoyable. He also has a great sense of humour, never failing to entertain us during the whole trip. He caught on earlier that we loved taking our own sweet time taking photos, so he made sure we had plenty of time for photostops. I would highly recommend MCM tours to anyone visiting Salzburg and wanting to take the road less travelled in addition to getting the best experience out of their stay in Salzburg.
