Brilliant afternoon. Eric, our guide, was a hoot! Funny, informative and gave us a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We visited all the SOM sites that were available plus a wonderful drive through the mountains. Highly recommend.

Our guide Helen was excellent and was very flexible with our group of 8. We had plenty of photo opportunities as we drove through the Austrian countryside, and she was very knowledgeable about the area and the movie that spurred us to take the tour. A wonderful tour that we would highly recommend to anyone with a group that values the flexibility that a private tour affords.

This is a must if you're a group! Our charming tour guide/driver Helen was very knowledgeable about the movie, the actors, the real family and the locations pertaining the Sound of Music theme. This is a great way to tour around Salzburg and its surroundings without having a fixed to the dot schedule as it very customizable to your group's needs.

When Sound of Music was released in 1965, I took all my friends to see it. I was so impressed with the beauty of this movie. Over the years, I have seen it many, many times. To be able to see many of the locations where it was filmed, was a dream come true. Our guide was very knowledgeable, which made our trip both informative and entertaining. We would recommend this tour to everyone. Salzburg is a lovely city.

This private tour was the highlight of our European trip. Our guide was very informed about the sites we visited, and was flexible when we asked for an extra stop. My young travelers were thrilled to see the scenes where one of their favorite movies was filmed. I am glad we took the private tour. I believe we were able to travel some of the smaller roads where the big buses can't go. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone traveling in the area. Super!!

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!

This private mini bus tour was perfect for my family of 6. The guide was so friendly and took many group pictures of us at scenic spots with our camera. It was a highlight of our week! We had perfect weather so that made all the vistas breathtaking! Loved it!

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.
