All honesty, this tour guide (forget his name but said he was from Florida and his mother was Austrian) was the best I've ever experienced in my whole life! He was hilarious, informative, professional and he made our entire Salzburg experience magical and one we'll never forget. Absolutely amazing!
My daughter, who was raised on The Sound of Music, and I, loved every single cheesy, silly, lovely, melodious moment of this tour. We even loved the true stories - they just depth to the Hollywood version we love. Thank you! A and K
Very enjoyable. A little rushed a couple of times. Peter was an excellent guide and very interesting.
Peter our guide was helpful, informative and amusing and the tour was beautiful. Ferdinand the driver was also very sweet.
Peter, our guide from Panorama, was hilarious! We couldn't stop laughing. He gave quite an in depth cover of the Von Trapp family. Took care of the bus load of people well. Well done! Keep up the good work Peter! Pity that our tour the day following yours was handled by another guide.
excellent tour, even if you had never seen the movie.
the guide was excellent and the tour was very thorough and a lot of fun
This tour was a blast. The tour guide, Peter, was the absolute highlight of the trip but everything else was just great as well. Well planned, good timing for the stops...a great and careful bus driver.
You see most of the exterior shots from the movie as well as geogous countryside.
I highly recommend this tour to everyone!
Peter, thanks for all the great insider information and the many, many good laughs.
Excellent throughout and although weather was poor, this did not really take much way from the tour. Highly recommended to all SOM fans!
We really enjoyed the tour and loved our guide. He had very interesting inside scoop and facts. A little more time in Mondsee would have been great. We did the morning tour so it was lunch time when we got there. We didn't have time to go into the church. We used Viator for all our tours on this trip. Is there not some sort of discount starting with the second tour?
The tour guide was truly excellent -- very funny and knowledgeable. in spite of the fact it was a rainy day, we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. highly recommended this tour and guide (Peter?)
We weren't sure our teenage sons would enjoy this but scheduled it anyway (after watching the movie at home prior to the trip). However, they said they would actually do this one again. The tour guide presented it in a very campy way that took the serious tone out of some of our other historical tour spots. It was a fun easy ride and not too much walking. Older folks could do this one easily.
It was good to see the places where the film was filmed. We stayed in Salzburg for a few days and after the tour we went back to some of the sights at our leisure. Well worth the money, however hotel pick up was by mini bus and by the time it arrived at the coach all the best seat were taken. So a bit of advice - if you can get to the bus without pick up you can arrive early and get the better seats.
