We are a family of six and we really enjoyed the tour. It as a great way to see the sighs where the film was made and also receive a great tour around some beautiful Austrian lakes with a very friendly and knowledgeable guide.

This tour was excellent. Our guide LISA was excellent. She spoke very clearly, and gave us a lot of information about the Sound of Music film, locations and also the true story that inspired the film. Then she took us to see 5 lakes and the drive and the scenery was out of this world. Right through the long drive she played the sound of music songs and it brought back nostalgic memories.

This was an outstanding tour!! Our guide, Peter, made this a huge success. He was not only well prepared for the Sound of Music tour, but also provided a history lesson on Salzburg.
Peter picked us up from our hotel, and was very comfortable with my family 5. He explained everything in detail.
The tour included a drive to the Lake region which was breathtaking.
We loved it.
Thank you Peter for a great tour!

This is all my 8 year-old wanted to do on our entire 3 week European vacation. I can tell you that I am so glad we opted for the private tour. It absolutely poured rain for the first half, but not to be deterred, we stopped at every important SoM spot, took pictures, and even got a little behind the scenes things. I loved every minute of this experience.

Our tour was PERFECT! We had a 3 and 6 yr old, so hired a private driver. He was considerate, courteous and very open to doing all wanted. He went out of his way to accommodate our requests. He was great with the kids, waited for us when we wanted to stay longer at a spot, and made arrangements to extend our tour when we took longer than expected. Our tour surpassed our expectations and I would recommend our driver and this tour to anyone , especially to those with specific requests! Thank you so much!

If you go to Salzburg, take this tour. Sonja, our guide, picked us up in a lovely mercedes benz and toured us through the city and the country side. We saw so much more that we would have on our own or even in a group tour. Sonja was very knowledgeable and accommodating to adjust to our schedule and she made it a lot of fun!

We showed up for our private Sound of Music tour a day late-completely our error. They were so kind and accommodated us by arranging for another private tour. They did not have to do this. We so appreciated this because our family was looking forward to this tour for quite some time. Then we hit the jackpot with Kristina as our guide. She was fabulous - so knowledgeable and personable. We were an extended family of six - Mom and Dad two teenagers an aunt and a grandma. Kristina was loved by us all. Thank you for making right our mistake! A must do if you are in Salzburg.

We had a very nice morning and our driver made it a wonderful experience. He was very knowledgeable, both with the Sound of Music movie and real story. Found many things interesting. Even our older children who didn't grow up with the movie enjoyed the tour!

We had a great time. We were a group of two adults and four students on the private tour. The two SOM fans had all their expectations met. The other 4 had a great time too. Our guide took us to lots of great sites and stopped to let us take photos whenever we wanted.

This was a fantastic tour of Salzburg and the surrounding area. Our guide (Maria, not sure if that was her real name or just a coincidence) was very personable and very knowledgeable about the area. Even if you are not a fan of the Sound of Music, this tour is a great primer to the history of Salzburg and the Lake District. The best guided tour that I have taken to date.

The private tour was the way to go for our family. Our guide, Natasha, was able to adapt the tour to our specific interests (including those of our 9-year old). We like the "Sound of Music" but aren't super-fans; the guide appreciated that fact and could give a more nuanced approach to and delivery of the tour content. We covered a lot of ground in 4 hours and felt it was well worth it!

We had a private tour that was very well planned.
The tour leader was charming and we enjoyed the experience very much.
The scenery was gorgeous and the music in the car was just the perfect touch.
It is a trip that my family will treasure always!
