Traveler Tips

We recommend the tour guide wear a microphone so everyone can hear what she says not just the people beside her.
Don't miss the Frauschuh in Mondsee - best Apfelstrudel anywhere!
A few recommendations, get there early to sit in the front and take the morning tour during the winter (because it gets completely dark before you see everything in the afternoon)!

Sound of Music Tour
Karen_E, Jan 2022
The scenery was spectacular. The guide, Brigit, was wonderful. She gave us a lot of information about the making of The Sound of Music and was able to answer all of our questions. She was a lovely lady and she made our experience great. Altogether an extremely good and unforgettable day.

learning what parts of movie were "true to life" and which ones weren't. Visiting the places where movie scenes really were filmed. loved going to the wedding church, even though that is not the place where the marriage between the Captain and Maria really took place.
