Two separate tours. Exceptional guide for the Sound of Music Tour. She was a doll with a great sense of humor. All of the sights in the movie are on the tour.
Different story with the Salt Mines tour leader. The guide consistently said 'Ya' and was not as friendly as one would expect. The Salt Mine Tour was a learning experience but if you only have a few days in Salzburg I would skip the Salt Mines Trip
Our guides got both tours were fantastic! The salt mine tour worth every penny ! We both had a great time
Our only suggestion would be to give a little more time in the towns that we allowed to get off in! We felt hurried to use the restroom, get something to drink and look around.
This combo tour was the perfect combination for me and my teen daughter. We did the salt mines first. The scenery on the drive was beautiful and the tour of the mines was fun! We took fun photos in the goofy mining clothes. Our afternoon on the Sound of Music tour was a super highlight of our trip! I was happy to find that most of the tour spots were reached by bus, visiting spots we couldn't get to by just walking around Salzburg. Incredible scenery past lakes and mountains! Our guide was super knowledgeable and entertaining too.. A few movie myths got busted as we walked through iconic movie scenes and got all the photos we wanted. We had fun singing along to the sound track on the bus too. And yes, we enjoyed learning about the real Von Trapp family too. If your not already a super-fan of the movie, you should be sure to watch it shortly before your tour... the scenes really come alive... with the sound of music! LOVED IT!
Loved both tours of the Salt Mines and the Sound of Music. Would highly recommend both!! Thanks to Viator for offering both these tours.
The salt mine tour was fantastic,
The Sound of Music is just average.
Definitely a must, the tour bus was full, the tour guide was great witty and so knowledgable. Fantastic afternoon
Great trip to the salt mines, ended up being my family of 4 plus another couple which was just like a private tour. Salt mines were great. Sound of Music tour was also fantastic made even more interesting by our wonderful host - beware though - lots of singing on the bus followed by jocular hilarity!!! A great day.
The Sound of Music tour was wonderful! Even my children, who have never seen the movie, enjoyed it. Being able to see the movie sites, as well as sites around the city and the countryside, was really good. The tour guide made this tour. He was funny and informative. We also appreciated that the tour was in English. The Salt Mines Tour was nice also. We enjoyed seeing the mountains and the mine. The tour guide going back and forth between English and German made it a little more difficult though. Overall, I would recommend this trip to anyone going to Salzburg.
Natasha is the best! Our tour guide for the Sound of Music tour, she was a ton of fun and extremely knowledgeable.
The tour was great- Salt mines enjoyed by young and old alike, and Sound of Music tour was perfect. If doing the tour at Christmas, make reservations for dinner on 24th before you go on the tour- hard to find restaurants open after tour on the 24th.
THE GUIDE (I AM SORRY BUT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO FIND HIM) WAS VERY GOOD IN HIS GENERAL ADVICE AND SUPPORT. HIS ADVICE ABOUT WHAT WOULD HAPPEN AT THE SALT MINES AND AFTERWARDS WAS MUCH APPRECIATED. WE ENJOYED HIS COMPANY. THANKS VERY MUCH.
IN THE AFTERNOON, NATASHA WAS ALSO VERY GOOD IN THE CIRCUMSTANCES - SNOW FALLING, ROADS BLOCKED, THE ONE-WAY SYSTEM BLOCKED AND EVENTUALLY WE MADE IT TO THE WEDDING CHURCH. IN THE VERY DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES SHE DID A GREAT JOB.
I booked the super saver tour, and thought that both trips were well organised, and wonderful.
The guides were on time, efficient friendly and made it a great day
A very good tour and a good guide. Salt mines were great and so were the venues for sound of music.
Highly recommend this dual tour
Best tour of our entire trip, guide Peter was simply fantastic - kept us thoroughly entertained throughout the tour along with valuable information as well.
Both tours were excellent and the guides were well informed and very knowledgeable of the area. They also made the experience very enjoyable. It wwas my first trip to Saltzburg and AI look forward to future visits.
Great tour. Fun bus with very informative guide. English speaking/singing. Stopped enough along the way for nice photos. Would recommend this tour for Sound of Music behind the scenes details as well as beautiful countryside, lakes and restaurants.
I am a very experienced traveler, and this tour, by far, was THE BEST, I've ever experienced. I honestly would like to attribute this amazing tour to our travel guide, Peter, and the driver, Ferdinand! Not only were they extremely knowledgeable, they were hysterically funny. Truly, by the end of the tour, I did not want it to end, because I felt as if I had been on a trip with dear friends or family. Very well done, guys!
Highly reccomend this tour. Panorama tours who proved the yours were very helpful and let us change around the times and type of tour we did without any problems. Salt mine tour was very good- suits all ages. Sound of music tour was amazing - great guide, great fun

The whole day was great. We did the salt mine tour in the morning. Very interesting riding the train into the mine, but the most fun was sliding down the wooden slides! We had a great lunch in Berchtesgaden( not included in tour price).That afternoon we enjoyed the Sound of Music sights and of course, the music as we drove along the beautiful Austrian countryside. Our guide was so funny!
Very knowledgeable guides and very interesting. Pretty scenery. Salt mines were very well set up for tourists. Stopped in Oberammergau which was very pretty although a bit touristy.
