Highly recommended! One can go back in time and relieve the Sound of Music of one's youth! The tour guide facilitated everything very well while ably sharing info about the movie's sights! My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour!

Guide for the walking tour seemed impatient with us. He raced us through the tour and cut 30 minutes off the time. We didn't have audiovox support so unless you were right next to the guide you didn't hear a word he said. So, no stars for the Historical Walking Tour. Now, the Sound of Music portion of the tour was great and lots of fun. Peter is a great guide, funny, informative, accommodating. wonderful. We had a good time and would highly recommend getting on the bus with Peter.

It rained the day I took this tour, but we saw a lot of the sights from Sound of Music. The tour guide, Peter, is extremely funny and entertaining. Had a good time!

An excellent day on both tours. I recommend the walking tour even if you have seen a bit of Salzburg already. The guide Erich was humorous and informative. The Sound of Music tour was generally very good. Singing on the bus adds a bit of fun.

We had a wonderful time. Peter did a great job and when he sang you would have thought it was Julie Andrews.

Having just returned from a fabulous Sound of Music Tour in Salzburg via Viator. I would like to recommend both the tour in Salzburg but also Viator in general as trustworthy. If you go on the Salzburg trip make sure Peter is your host as that man is just naturally hilarious. He's a talented, sharp witted, guy in Lederhosen weaving in all kinds of stories and jokes including co-opting his driver in to be his Ernie Wise straight guy. My partner and I had a fantastic day full of laughter, good spiritedness and the charm of the sound of Music settings and songs. It was lovely to see the tree lined avenue that Maria did her Confidence in me song to see the summerhouse and the church and the mountain and much more. We'd actually go again and hope to see Peter once more....He is that good!

This was amazing. Our guide in the walking tour was so knowledgeable and not only explained what we were seeing, but the best way to see things in and around Salzburg. And the sound of music tour was also amazing. Great guides, well planned and so entertaining and informative. It's a must do!

This combination of historical walking tour and the famous sound of music tour offer great insight to the city history and the stories behind sound of music movie. The only down side is that the tours would take up almost a day, if you only have one day in Salzburg and would like to walk around the city/do some shopping, you wouldn't have much time outside of the tours. So I would recommend this package for people who have more than a day in Salzburg.

Sound of Music: Delightful tour. Our guide was superb, entertaining, informative, interactive, helpful and had a really good yodelling voice. She had a terrific sense of humour, stage presence and crowd control - would make a great stand-up comic. Polished performance, both by the company and the guide.
Historical Walking tour: Hans was very informative, interesting and interactive.

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour! Even tho the weather was not the best and the group needed English and German interpretation, the tour guide did a great job! With all the tours being performed, 2 in our group became lost, one not finding us. Maybe some better way of being able to follow would be helpful.

My daughter and I loved this tour. That probably sounds kind of hokey, but it is so much more than the Sound of Music. The first part of our tour was the historical walking tour with our guide, Naomi. We saw Mozart's home, a number of important sights such as the Mirabell Gardens and Old City Salzburg. We heard the history of the Hohensalzburg Fortress (and later visited the sight). The Sound of Music Tour was by bus and we were driven to sites where the movie was filmed and then went out to the hills and experienced of some the most beautiful views anywhere around Salzburg. We stopped in the town of Mondsee for apple strudel. The bus was full of very happy people singing "the hills are alive with the sound of music" and "do-re-me". Our tour guide was an Austrian man named Gus with a wonderful engaging personality.
