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!

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.

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.

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!

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!

The Salt Mines day trip was terrific, it included a stop in Berchtesgarden where we had a wonderful lunch at the Goldener Ber Restaurant. Later that day, we did the "Sound of Music" tour, which included an amazing drive through the lake country and a stop in Mondsee, which is where the church the wedding scene was filmed in. Our guide, Tasha, was a perfect blend of extensive knowledge of the Sound of Music trivia/songs and sense of humor. We had a great day!
