I travelled from Innsbruck by train for the day, specifically to take this tour, and I wasn't disappointed - especially as 2016 is the 50th Anniversary of the movie's release. The tour was good fun - pure and simple. Lots of people from the UK, US and a few from Australia/NZ. The guide was great fun and had us laughing... More

Overall we had a good time on this trip. The guide informed us of other notable places and included good general information about Salzburg and the area as well as the promised Sound of Music sights. You do spend some time outside which is not as great in the winter months as it would be in the summer. You can't... More

If you are not one for cycling, then pick this tour. While you get off at many sites, there are several you just see from the bus window. Also, you experience of the tour will really depend on your tour guide. We were lucky with ours. Peter made us laugh most of the way.

Our guide, Peter, was awesome and really made the tour, he is funny and knows the history of the film being set on location in Salzburg.

There is only so much you can do on a tour about ONE movie. It is worth it if you are a fan. It is a bit expensive though.The best part about the tour is its a great way to see the surrounds of Salzburg in one hit. I went in the afternoon and I wish I had gone in... More

I have loved SOM since I was a child so when in Salzburg I checked for any local tours. This one had good reviews so I was very excited. Maybe I expected too much. Positives - good if you don't have much time and just want to be shown few main locations. - Our guide and the driver were absolutely... More

This tour was interactive with a well researched guide named Peter There was detail provided like the release of the film to Hollywood by the Austrians only after the real Maria Von Trapp provided clearance for its release This clearance I'm 1965 came about after the Americans settled with a $950000 payment The sites of film shoots were explored with...

If you love the Sound of Music, this tour is unmissable. Even if you don't, the tour is highly recommended as you get to see not only around Salzburg but also up into the mountains and lakes. Of our party of six, two of us had never even seen the film but agreed that the tour was excellent and a... More

Have been wanting to go on this tour for years, and it was wonderful! Lovely to see all the film locations - the gazebo was the highlight & the scenery was beautiful. Very knowledgeable tour guide & enjoyed watching the documentary & listening to the music! A highlight of my holiday in Salzburg

This is the only tour to consider if you are a Sound of Music fan. Peter was our guide and he was terrific; good info re the movie as well as good general info one would expect from a native Salzburger. This tour takes you out to the lake district which you are unlikely to see on your own unless... More
