It was a lot of fun, but essentially they just indentify points of interest on the way to the Danube Tower. That said the trip up the tower was a lots of fun, if your afraid of heights like me, the elevator is enclosed so your not looking outside as your going up and down. Also you can stay in an enclosed area or an open area at the top to enjoy the view! A view locations are poited out on the way on the way to the Wine Tavern. This was the best part, as they take you down to the wine cellar which is absoutely beautiful! The atmosphere is wonderful; candle lit, accordian and violin players to set the mood. Good Wine and a great dinner menu! Don't eat dinner before as you will be at the tavern for about an hour and a half. They do rop you off at your hotel after so you can drink as much as you want!
Best day of the whole trip! Now alot of the movie sites with in the citycenter are very easy to walk to on your own, give yourself 3-4 hrs to see them all (Mirabell Gardens, Nonnburg Abbeyect). This tour takes to the locations that are harder to get to/find. The guides are fantastic and fun with lots of great stories told to them by the original cast members and some of the actual Von Trapp family members (all of whom have been back and taken the tour)! Be prepared to sing along to the music from the movie on the bus between locations. You also get to spend about an hour in Mondsee (where the Wedding scene church is). This is a great place to get some lunch or apple strudel, you wont really have enough time to get something to eat when you go back to change buses for the afternoon trip to the salt mines. The trains and slides going down into the Salt Mines are alot of fun! the caverns of the mines are really amazing and erie. The salt lake will play tricks on your eyes, it has to be seen to be believed. The English audio guide is not the best quality and cuts out alot but we were not that concerned and still enjoyed ourselves despite that. After the Mines you spend an hour in a village in the Bavarian mountains(great mountain views, including a view of Eagles Nest(Hitler's compound)perched n the cliffs above). Another opportunity for strudel and Bavarian beer before heading back into Salzburg.
