Our tour guide was cranky and lazy and did little to make the Tour enjoyable. We always tip our guides, but did not tip him.

A must when in Salzburg

Excellent introduction to the Sound of Music. Live closely where the movies was filmed, learn a lot of behind stage stories and anecdotes. Sing a long. Enjoy the breathtaking sightseeing. It’s complete with experience. I would call it a must when in Salzburg, and this company knows what it is doing.

Our tour guide David was brilliant and was so knowledgeable on the locations and stories about the production of the movie. The tour brings you out as far as Mondsee 30k outside Salzburg so it is a great way to see the surrounding areas. Make sure to bring your camera for plenty of photos.
