    Peter our tour guide was fantastic! Very friendly and knowledgeable. Loved going to see some of the main sites from the movie and see some of the city at the same time.

    Our guide gave us so much information about not only the film locations, but the actors and some history as well. She really knew the movie well. Great day in a beautiful city.

    Our hilarious tour guide David and friendly companion, Evo, our driver created an amazing trip to Salzburg that we will never forget! From David’s orchestrating of the Sound of Music soundtrack through the snowy hills to Evo’s delicious beverage bar, we could not have been in better hands for this tour. We got to see all of the famous sights and learned so many interesting things I didn’t know before!

    A fun and interesting tour. Entertaining guide and lots of interesting stops along the way. A highlight was the cathedral at Mondsee and the obligatory stop for “kaffee und torte”. A must-do experience!

    Fantastic trip for those who love “The Sound of Music”. Seeing where scenes were filmed, the inaccuracies in the film and a good singalong describes the tour. The guide and driver were fabulous

    Misleading advertising and promotion. They split our family into multiple small vans (not a coach) that had very poor seating and visibility. The company have been banned from parking or entering most of the meaningful sites, like the Abbey, house, etc so you literally look at those from the window of a mini van. You will get more access by going independently. Our driver was knowledgeable and good but the company and the tour was expensive, marketing was misleading and overall not a good experience.

    It was such a fun day. I loved the back stories. I would have loved to see the place where the hills are alive was filmed.
