What You Can Expect

Salzburg Super Saver: Original Sound of Music and Salt Mines Day Trip

Original Sound of Music Tour

Bavarian Mountains and Salt Mines

On leaving Salzburg the journey takes us along the King's Lake river to the picturesque Alpenstrasse. Upon arrival at the mines slip into traditional miners' clothes and enter the mines to hear historical and legendary tales of the fascinating underground world. Using the same slides as hundreds of miners before, descend to the grottos, the magical world beneath the surface of the earth. You end your adventure with a raft sail across the famous salt lake, accompanied by eerie, mystical sounds.

Original Sound of Music Tour

Highlights of the Original Sound of Music Tour, recommended by Maria von Trapp, include a tour of Mirabell Gardens, where Maria and the children danced to 'Do-Re-Mi', and the opportunity to view the wedding church at Mondsee. In between film locations you can relax and listen to the famous songs and lyrics from the film, including 'Edelweiss', 'Sixteen Going on Seventeen' and of course the glorious title song 'The Sound of Music'. The tour also takes in the historical and architectural landmarks in the city of Salzburg, as well as a part of the picturesque lake district.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

The salt mine tour was interesting and fun. I liked the audio listening capability, as our guide spoke German very well, but English, not so well. Walter, our tour guide on the bus was a funny chap, and Constantine, the bus driver did a great job maneuvering the tight corners on the mountain roads and parking areas. He said it was only his 2nd day to do that tour, but he did great. We also had the same driver, Constantine, for our afternoon SoM tour.

Petr, the tour guide for the Sound of Music was excellent, too. He had such a distinguished voice and a great sense of humor. You could tell he'd done this tour many times. I enjoyed the chance to sing some of the songs, although the key was too high for my voice,

I thought the day of 2 tours was a great way to spend a beautiful day (the only sunny day we had in Salzburg). The Hills were alive.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

Buying the two tours together is a bargain. Even if you do not care about The Sound of Music, the scenery (especially on the way to the church) is fantastic.
