4 Hours well spent fun and insight into the wonderful film that most of us have seen many many times. Ivo the driver and April the guide were great. Very cheesy, but it added to the fun. One thing, that I do think is necessary to relay to April, the guide is, that she omitted to inform us that Von Trapp’s first wife was English. This was not mentioned, and I overheard another guide. An important factor I think. Any way, great afternoon was had by all. No need to do again. Laura Li
We enjoy so much this tour lead by Ms Brigitte. She was fun and funny lady. And she very informative about Sound of Music even for the bts. Highly recommended to buy their tour if you love the legendary at all times movie “The Sound Of Music”
Relived the nostalgic moments from my child hood when I watched the film number of times and sang every song ... later taught all the songs to my children! It was great to visit the places where the film was shot :)

Skip-the-Line: Eagle's Nest in Berchtesgaden Tour from Salzburg
Fantastic View and Historical Too!
, Nov 2019
Skip the line was well worth it, as we did not need transport to the pickup area and the lines were long. The commentary on the bus was entertaining and informative. The view at Eagle's Nest was wonderful. This was a highlight of our trip to Germany.
The tour is a two faced tour since is an historical tour and also a sightseeing tour. For the historical part I am an history buff and I knew most of the history related to this place, the only more I needed to have was a visit. The view from the terraces are outstanding, they say that is possible to see 200 miles from there in a clear day...the view and the nest makes this tour a nice complement to a visit in the area
This was a great and educational tour. We had great weather leaving Salzburg with the bus, which was punctual. Our tour guide "Walt" provided a very informative narrative of our trip and it was presented in a very understandable manner.He certainly made the tour very enjoyable.

Bavarian Mountains and Salt-Mines Tour from Salzburg
, Feb 2020
Leo was phenomenal! We had such a good day. He was knowledgeable about the area, best picture places, restaurants, the history, etc. He made us laugh all day, and was so kind and happy. This was one of our top favorite tours because of him--we would recommend him to anyone! I was even looking for a recipe for a dish I had while in Austria, and Leo was able to tell me specifically how to cook it. If there's one tour you do in Salzburg, it should be this one! Everything was planned perfectly, we had some time to shop in a little nearby town. The salt mines were incredible and a very cool experience. We hope we can come back someday soon and take another tour with Leo!

Excellent. Delightful late afternoon river cruise with lively, fun & experienced Captain & First Mate..! Great explanation of Salzburg River bank history, both from our Captain & recorded sound track. Beverages + wine & beer available for purchase.

Thank you for incorporating such a great event together.
This was a perfect evening out in Salzburg. The river cruise short and sweet but it was a beautiful way to see the city from a different view. The dinner was perfect and had incredible views of the mountains while the sun as setting. There was also no crowds to deal with at the castle since it was close to closing time. The concert was incredible! It was small and quaint. The concert room/hall with beautiful. Would definitely recommend and worth the money.

Mozart Dinner Concert at the Baroque Hall of St Peter`s Abbey in Salzburg
Nice evening, beautiful performance
, Dec 2019
Beautiful setting, predominant opera singing with a fabulous string quintet. Dinner served between sets, probably need a few more waiters to serve the number of tables. Drinks are extra as stated. Would have enjoyed more of Mozart’s prominent pieces with the string quintet without as much opera, but overall a very nice evening.

Ben was a great guide and told us lots about the film and the locations. However as a private tour for 3 adults it would have been nice to have been given a bottle of water and something like a souvenir brochure. The postcards given were not that special as they were stocked in all the hotels we visited. It would also have been nice to walk the grounds of the Hotel Schloss Leopoldskron and been able to take photos beside the gates etc. I am sure we could even have bought a drink in the hotel to allow for this.

Austrian Apple Strudel Cooking Class including Lunch
Sweet times in Salzburg
, Feb 2020
We had an amazing time cooking up nockerl and strudel! The recipe was very easy to follow and a lot of fun sprinkling sugar and flour together. The beautiful kitchen is cut INTO the mountain for a wholesome Salzburg experience. Do this class!
My husband and I love cooking and we signed up for this class hoping for a good recipe and fun along the way. The class did not disappoint. We loved every minute of it and our strudel came out tasting really delicious. We also learned how to make the Nockerl which we didn't realize we'd get to do so it was like a bonus recipe. We are excited to get home and practice so we can give strudels for Christmas gifts to our family.

Great experience. Tour guide was amazing. We saw some really beautiful items for both the sound of music and Hallstatt. Luke was informative, funny and relatable. We also made an effort to chat and bond with the others on our tour. When you go to Hallstatt, rent a boat for 30 minutes and go on the lake - it is super easy and you shouldn't be intimidated.

Original Sound of Music and Historical Walking Tour Combo
Very good tour experience
, Oct 2019
We bundled our walking tour of Salzburg and the Sound of Music bus tour. Highly recommend the walking tour to get a feel of this complex and historical city. Tour was casual and very informative so that we could later walk the city on our own to focus in the areas we had more interest. The bus tour for the Sound of Music was way to enjoy the great musical with 60 other musical fanatics! Great fun singing the tunes and reminiscing about the show! Only stop at a couple actual sites but it’s all about the experience!
This was my wife's dream tour. She has wanted to do this all of her life and she wasn't disappointed. It was awesome to see all of the locations that were in the film and we are now able to watch the movie again and say, "WE WERE RIGHT THERE!" The only disappointment was that we couldn't go into or even near some of the locations. David our guide was excellent even leading us all in singing all the songs from the movie. Very good tour, I'm glad we went.

We really appreciated our tour guide (Wolfgang) on this tour of Salzburg because he asked what we were most interested in and then customized the tour for us. Even though we were on the City Highlights tour, he focused on interesting sites from the Sound of Music based on our interests. He stopped in several places and parked so that I could get out and take pictures and walk around but kept my wife (who couldn't get out of the van easily) company. It was alot of information and we really got a good feel for the city in just a couple hours. We highly recommend this tour.
