The Original Sound of Music Tour in Salzburg

Salzburg, Austria

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Great tour and Peter was a great guide. He's been doing the tour since 1996 and he knows everything there is to know. We seemed to be on a quiet bus and there was no singing which was a bit of a disappointment.

It was snowing heavily the day we went which didn't cause any problems except for one view down the lakes and it was quiet magical.

There are some places the tour doesn't go like the Abbey but you can easily walk up there and see it for yourself.

Ask lots of questions if you have them because there is so much to learn about the real family as well as the film and they can't possible tell you everything without being prompted.

Absolutely a highlight of our trip - we loved it

My Review

I've used a lot of city cards for discounts in my travels but this is probably the best value I've found anywhere. Salzburg is a small jewel of a city and you can buy the card for 1, 2 or 3 days. We did 3 days for 39euro each (bargain!) It covers all public transport and entry to everything - I mean everything! Honestly, you can't use all that's included in this card. It's a simple and brilliant system and we think it saved us at least 80euro each during our stay.

Travel Recommendation

The New York Pass

New York City

My Recommendation Tip

Hi All
This pass is great but I'd suggest using the page that gives you the choice between the Circle Line Cruise and the Liberty/Ellis Island tours for the Circle Line and book Liberty/Ellis separately through Viator for a timed ticket.

This is because the NY Pass doesn't get you into the priority queue for Liberty/Ellis Island. A separate timed ticket will save you up to 2 hours of waiting (usually at least an hour) and you don't lose any of the value of your NY Pass.

Absolutely fabulous but the chopper was a lot older than advertised and my friend didn't get a window seat which for the money should really be guaranteed

My Review

Both the uptown and downtown tours are fantastic and if I'd not already been to Brooklyn, I would have done that one as well. The tour guides are really informative on all sorts of things in addition to what you are seeing. I do think you should be able to pick your ticket up at any stop though with the Viator voucher rather than having to go to Times Square or the Port Authority which is such a waste of time.

My Review

It's a great deal and I did everything other than the Natural History Museum. You'd be better to book the Ellis Island Tour separately though as a timed ticket because the queues are unbelievable and the NY Pass doesn't get you into the priority queue anymore (you can use that page in the book to do the Circle Line Cruise tour so you're not losing anything. I would say though that the London Pass is a much better cost saving/value for money which surprised me. It covers a lot more attractions
